Or is it, the thread needs to be left alone for 3 days... then you post... no one else posts after you... and then you win?!

So it's basically impossible to win.... ahhh I getz it... I think.... :S


You are correct, if there is 3 days of no activity in this thread and your post is the last one, then you win! Not impossible, I've seen it come close a number of times.

It's a game of chance, persistence and "what if". LOL Good luck bro!


LOL well we can try. What if you post, there's no activity for 3 days, the 3.5 days later someone else posts? Does that still count?

Fun contest though!

Only thing I know of him is the electric car named after him and the movie "The Illusionist". I wonder how much of that movie is true?

That was very cool... now how much of that is true. For example is there any supporting evidence of this:

"One time, while he was working on magnetic resonance, he discovered the resonant frequency of the Earth and caused an earthquake so powerful that it almost obliterated the 5th Avenue New York building that housed his Frankenstein Castle of a laboratory. Stuff was flying off the walls, the drywall was breaking apart, the cops were coming after him, and Tesla had to smash his device with a sledge hammer to keep it from demolishing an entire city block. Later, he boasted that he could have built a device powerful enough to split the Earth in two. Nobody dared him to prove it."

No that's not real. Chuck Norris was just time travelling and Tesla took credit for it.

Funny story... when I was a teenager, my brother and I were clearing out and burning tree's and brush to make room for a camp ground space where we lived in upstate NY. The following day my mother wakes us up for school and my entire body head to toe is swollen up very bad. I get rushed to hospital to find out that I had a severe reaction to breathing in the smoke from burning poison sumac trees the day before! Any rate my eyes were also swollen and I looked of Asian. So what did my mother do? Took a photo of me with one of these Asian hats on! ha ha ha

Tesla was fascinated with frequencies, and experimented with them constantly. Yeah its all real, documented by the NYPD, newspapers, etc. Google images has some pretty cool images when you search "Nikola Tesla".

Bottom line though is Tesla did more to advance us to the information age from the Industrial Age than any other inventor.

A lot of times he would see his invention in his head, make adjustments, engineer the frequency used, build a prototype in his head, test the invention, and make adjustments and THEN build the actual prototype and it would work flawlessly. Now Edison on the other hand took 10,000 trys at making a light bulb...both were brilliant men just different methods.

It is what it is.

Oh h*ll no! You can't make up stuff like that! LOL!! Really though, I have no clue where that photo ended up. I should ask her to see if she has. That would be funny to see, even at my own expense!

Tesla was only smart because he electrified his neurons all the time. ;)
