Comment 7 by veggiemanuk :

As an example of the over enthusiasm for Nicola Tesla, here's the www.teslasociety.org website, claiming that Tesla "INVENTED" AC current.

The list of inventions attributed to the man seems to grow each year as his religious followers dream up more things to praise him for.

It might be hard to believe but yes Tesla did do all of those things, he may have a few notable failures such as wireless power but i don't know any new things that have been attributed to him in recent years

though

though> t's not a problem if you want people

to keep replacing their computers every few years. I swear I've replaced 3 laptops now due to overheating. The smaller that circuits are and the closer they get, the more of a problem it becomes (or the better it gets, from a computer retailer's POV).

This is a pretty cool discovery, thoughthough

You need to clean out the lint from the cooling fan on your laptop every 6 months or so which may require opening it apart to get access. Laptop still going after 2 years.

My local Catholic church here has cut some sunday masses due to lack of numbers and i hear its common now here in ireland. The younger generation are not going anymore and its a tremendous sign of the times. Enda Kenny's attack is another sign of where things are going here.
