It's Okay To Be Smart: Tesla Tussle

jtotheizzoe:

  1. The Oatmeal publishes an awesome comic reminding us of the tortured genius that inhabited the body known as “Nikola Tesla”. It also spent a lot of time calling Thomas Edison a profiteering douche-canoe.

  2. Forbes (yes, Forbes) published a rebuttal to the Oatmeal comic, fact-checking some of the claims made against Edison. He was downgraded to a douche-kayak, or perhaps even a douche-skiff. The Forbes piece also made efforts to deflate the mythical being that Tesla has become … which is completely expected, considering how he perfectly he delivers the “come-hither look”:

    (This is precisely the face I make when I write this blog, FYI)

  3. So of course The Oatmeal publishes a point-by-point rebuttal of the Forbes piece, throwing down the silk glove of intellectual duelsmanship. Ten paces were walked, Edison (Forbes) and Tesla (Oatmeal) face each other with guns poised … who shall emerge victorious in this modern morality play???
