Mark Twain offers to buy Nikola Tesla's Death Ray Patent.

I offered to buy Tesla's patent on his newest invention, the death ray. I made this offer to preclude anyone to create a monopoly on this lethal technology. In that Tesla made known his inventions through patents & public writings long ago, much of his technology is now in the public domain.

Nikola Tesla: Strange Genius. Tesla X-rays Mark Twain's head.
The astounding... scientist life of Nikola Tesla. Just who was this pioneer of radio, radar, and wireless communication? We discover his legacy in the work of today’s scientists and artists. Samantha Hunt’s novel The Invention of Everything Else is a fictional portrait of Tesla. Monologist Mike Daisey tells us how Tesla X-rayed Mark Twain’s head. And across the country, garage inventors toil in obscurity at the next breakthrough that will change the world.

Mike Daisey tells the story of the Tesla’s real Dr. Strangelove moment: inventing the ultimate super-weapon, a death ray. But did it work? The government thought it might, and the Cold War got hotter.
Daisey also describes the mystery behind all of Tesla's scientific papers going missing, and how it all may have led to the creation of the Strategic Defense Initiative of the 1980s — Reagan's "Star Wars" program.
