Leonardo is #1

Tesla is #2.

The video errors. Tesla had a sense of humor & he liked mine.

It was Edison that saw no humor in Tesla.

Edison confused facts. It was Edison that saw no humor in Tesla. Tesla returned the sentiment, without much regard for what Edison was thinking.

Tesla could sense an amusing tale before I it came to me that I was telling one. He saw humor well ahead of my laboring through it.

Teslas' Words on Twain; Twain's Words on Tesla.

Truly Great Man. We considered each other personal friends.

It his own words, Tesla on Twain:

Tesla on Mark Twain
``I had hardly completed my course at the Real Gymnasium when I was prostrated with a dangerous illness or rather, a score of them, and my condition became so desperate that I was given up by physicians. During this period I was permitted to read constantly, obtaining books from the Public Library which had been neglected and entrusted to me for classification of the works and preparation of the catalogues. One day I was handed a few volumes of new literature unlike anything I had ever read before and so captivating as to make me utterly forget my hopeless state. They were the earlier works of Mark Twain and to them might have been due the miraculous recovery which followed. Twenty-five years later, when I met Mr. Clemens and we formed a friendship between us, I told him of the experience and was amazed to see that great man of laughter burst into tears.''

Twain Letter to Tesla

Dear Mr. Tesla,

Have you Austrian & English patents on that destructive terror which you are inventing? & if so, won’t you set a price upon them & commission me to sell them? I know cabinet ministers of both countries - & of Germany, too; likewise William II...


War could be a relic of the past with his inventions.

I explained to Tesla how his work would make war useless. We continued this discussion for decades. Our last documented meeting was in New York, 1943. Notably, this was 33 years after my demise was once again wildly reported. See the last paragraph from the link above.

My short novel, "The Mysterious Stranger," was my retelling Tesla’s childhood tales in Austria-Hungary. Changed a bit in the retelling.

Nikola Tesla July 10, 1856 - January 7, 1943 (aged 86)

Mark Twain November 30, 1835 -
