    That would be fantastic. I am sure we can all learn from it.

    Yeah can you explain the silliness that is the anti-vax movement... Not that I need convincing I just like people who know ripping their arguments to shreds.

    I agree 100%. Edison was America's darling, and deservedly so, but the smear campaign against Tesla's vision for AC was downright nasty. As history has shown, Tesla was right and the power grids we have are proof.

    These are from the entrance to Niagara Falls.
    Telsa was a genius, there is little doubt but he had a few issues with some things and was apparently very vocal about them. These include overweight people, Einstein's theory of relativity, atom theory and apparently fashion. The atom theory one was a bit of a surprise...

    Edision, the more I learned about him the more I realised he was simply a business man more than an inventor. He was very much involved with the 'race to the patent office' nonsense. His inventions were all about business opportunity rather than science. Apparently he wasn't very keen on those who were 'learned'.

    A side note -

    Being in the electrical field for over 20 years I've come to learn a thing or two about it.

    Though AC is great, in many ways it's highly impractical, especially in our day and age of digital technology. It also has many issues with it's transmission.

    HVDC transmission is becoming more common, especially between countries and 'separate' grids. It's not perfect either but it goes to show that DC voltage was always a good alternative and to me it was possibly the better one looking at our world today.

    Smear campaigns went both ways back then. The DC smear has been around for some time and it's only been fairly recently that it's proven to be false.

    Thanks for the link. I just bought it. I have to say that chemistry was never my strong point.
    Ahhh....chemistry, you either get it or you don't. It was my favorite subject in school.

    Another book by Simon Singh that I highly recommend. It is about solving Fermat's last theorem.

    Okay , those guys are LITERALLY crazy !!! I mean they say that vaccines might kill someone or cause them disease , but hey it is better to face the weak kind of illness than to deal with the disease itself which might kill!!

    I am extremely ignorant on all those.

    I can tell you when I was like 14-15 years old, I had a friend who was diabetic and had to inject himself with insulin everyday. One day we looked at insulin under a microscope and saw hundreds of small rods. We figured the small rods probably pricked cells so they would absorb sugar. We also figured the small rods could possible block small capillaries and thought maybe that is what causes vision problems and foot circulation problems in diabetics. That's what we thought back then, but I really have no idea if there is any truth to what we thought back then.

    That's out of my league. I'm an enthusiast and have general good knowledge but finite details are not area.

    Extremism is synonymous with insanity. Both are wholly counterproductive and only achieve discord between people.

    How about high frequency radio emissions transmitted at RMS striking metallic surfaces.
    They aren't merely reflected they are retransmitted back to any receiver tuned to detect and decode that particular frequency.

    Speaking of high frequency energy....😊 All of this Tesla talk put me in the mood to drag out my Tesla Coil for my kiddos to see. Once I get it dusted off, I'll try to post some pictures of it in action. :)

    Anyone ever been to the Institute of Technology in Boston?

    We went a number of years ago and were able to sit thru the wonders of electricity in there.
    There's 2 very large Tesla coils in there that put on one heck of an impressive display.
    Whole thing was pretty spectacular.
