I watched this thing on The History Channel tonight. Anyway I didn't know Tesla went to work for Edison, and Edison promised him a $50,000 bonus to basicly get Edison's shit in order for him -- so Tesla goes to work and does everything he asks -- Edison never paid him. Not only that, but Tesla leaves after that to do his own thing and invents the AC current (which we use today); Edison launches this prohpaganda campaign against him, part of which included Edison trying to scare people away from AC by electrocuting a live elephant with Tesla's current in front of a crowd of onlookers.

And Tesla married a pigeon.

Tesla was way cooler if you ask me. His current of electricity worked better, and he was alot better of a man when you get down to it.

Southpark should reenact this story; Cartman as Edison electrocuting the elephant, and Butters as Tesla taking care of wounded pigeons, etc. I could so see that.

Next, watch the one about Einstein. He left his wife to raise their two children alone. Nice guy.

Admittedly though, Einstein was his own man. Edison merely pioneered a technology that somebidy else made, whereas Einstein thought of things not even on the map yet.

If a mind like Einstein's were born today with all the information we have, I bet he'd be able to make one hell of a bomb.

There's a possibility that Mileva contributed significantly to his earliest and most famous theories, receiving no credit. One thing I've learned from countless years working with and for scientists -- none of them is his own man. All their work is built in the back of someone else's work. And they fight about it like little children.

Newton was the first big bitch in this area, with his attack on Leibniz.

Both of them came up with the same theory at the same time, reputedly independently of each other, but Isaac Newton, through the Royal Society, managed to get Leibniz's work labelled an act of plagiarism.

What wasn't clear until afterwards was that the head honcho for the Royal Society was one I. Newton. Also, the concluding statement on the report was also written by old Isaac too.

The thing is, Newton only published the final theory - never any workings out or early stage work. He gave to the world a finished article. Leibniz, however, had the lot - the planning, the work that moved the idea into a coherent theory.

Calling it a bit fishy is a slight understatement.

No "professional" does their own work.

I work for engineers. Guess who does the engineering? Certainly not the one getting the engineer's paycheck.

I wonder who came up with all of Tesla's great ideas for him?...Seein's how he was a kind of scientist/engineer....Probably the maid at the Waldorf-Astoria...I highly doubt it was Edison or Westinghouse.....

Are you admitting to plagiarism for your academic work?

Or that you have someone in your employ performing the "professional" task of creating academic responses for you?

Naughty rabbit.

It is all submitted online these days bb, they compare papers to a database to ensure independent work. Currently my academic papers are mostly peer review, so I am not required to come up with my own research questions. I cite anything that is not my own, and that is the proper way to go about plaigarism.

I am saying I do not have an engineering degree and I am not a licensed engineer, but I am doing work that requires a license because the engineer I am assigned to will not do it. And he takes credit for and gets paid for it.

Sounds to me like you're getting fucked.

Which is kind of hot, if you ask me.

Yeah, it's like my Lord of the Privvy gets all of the credit for wiping my ass, but really he just selects which of the lesser minions I have in my employ - the nameless masses that work below stairs - carries out that honoured task on his behalf.

Bloody managerial classes, hey?

Yeah, and I take all the credit for the jokes I force Czech immigrants to write for me. Here's one: "Don't you hate it when you go dizzy with hunger?"

Wait a minute, that's not funny. SVETLANA! What have I told you about timing? Don't make me burn your feet with hot hanger wires again!
