I never liked science or math when I was a kid. In fact, I used math class as nap time in high school and science class as an extra period of lunch. This all changed when I came across the legend of Nikola Tesla. In my curious search of the world (post high school) I picked up a biography on Nikola Tesla (Wizard: The Life and Times of Nikola Tesla : Biography of a Genius) and upon learning of his contributions to society, I quickly changed my attitude towards science and math. In many ways, the story of Nikola Tesla has drastically altered the direction of my life (I like to think of this as a positive change).
If you are like most people, you likely haven’t heard of Nikola Tesla, which is a shame. I am convinced that his contributions to society are unrivaled. He is truly one of a kind. Attached to this post is a rather long ‘comic’ style representation of his greatness and why you most likely never have heard of him.
The original post for this comic can be found at The Oatmeal, which features plenty of other comics in similar style to this one.
