    The accusations aren't overblown. His hyperbole about them however is.

    But that it is completely irrelevant too Telsa and his deserving a museum here in the US which has been my point all along...

    They're not overblown. The guy was purely profit driven and had no interest in striking up fair deals with his partners if he thought he could exploit and / or ruin them.

    Wait, your point was that it is silly for a guy who draws COMPLETELY ABSURD COMICS to advocate for something that he likes? I mean, this isn't part of the museum foundation, it's a web comic that is saying, hey, remember that hilarious comic I drew about how giant a dick Edison was? Here is a chance for people to learn about Tesla, you should sponsor it.

    Let me reiterate. You got annoyed at this call for a museum to honor one of the smartest inventors in American History because one of the links to a donation run is through a webcomic, and the webcomic wasn't fair?

    is it?
    that's news to me.

    I had to assume this was all just part of his campaign.
    you can't expect me to be familiar with every satirical blogger on the internet....

    Seriously, you haven't heard of The Oatmeal? You didn't, I don't know. Think. Hmm, The Oatmeal. That is a strange site name for a Tesla advocacy site. It also seems semi reminiscent of something involving a ridiculous lawsuit that was blown out of all proportions by crazy lawyers + the internet. It is also ridiculously popular and pretty damned hilarious. Or the fact that the very top of the page you were sent to, in addition to BEING A COMIC, had only a few buttons, one of which was...comics. I mean, you can't be expected to just KNOW every comic on the internet, but when you're linked to one of the more popular ones, and when it's also recently been in the news and when you're attacking something, you would think that you could at least bother to use basic critical reasoning? Look at the site a little? Notice format? Nothing? You HAD to assume it was part of the campaign for the Tesla museum? Either you are the biggest idiot this side of mars, or you are such a douche that you think everyone else is.

    Obviously I am engaging in a little light hyperbole, but SERIOUSLY jacks? You can't fucking read a website? Not even a little?

    lol... calm down J.
    I don't spend a lot of time on the internet and I didn't spend much time on the page.

    opened the link, started reading, read the stuff about Edison, closed the link, wrote my initial reply.
    so I never heard of the Oatmeal. sue me.

    To be perfectly fair I was not familiar with The Oatmeal either.

    I did however do my research.... Because it was an odd way to pitch a charity in the least... and from what I saw he's not really that funny. Just spins reality in a droll and semi-ironic fashion put to a cartoon strip with silly looking art.

    Somewhat inaccurate but also somewhat amusing. "Electric Jesus" ... he died for our sins

    Man that is a bad joke. :( I apologize. Really... Truly... I am very sorry for that. Why don't you guys believe me? :D
