As I sit here this morning huddled around my little electric heater with the snow falling all around my house, 13 degrees outside.....Only two words come to mind...

Ehhh..... Tesla.

Never really done either. SP is sorta poser-tool, H is sorta lazy-stoner. Both are equally detrimental to actual work.

Just finished a fictional story in which the protagonist, a brilliant engineer done very wrong by the gobernment, decides to get even with EVERYONE by building an EMP weapon based on Tesla's designs. Numerous factoids and specutoids in the book about Tesla's life. Especially interesting the speculation that the massive 1908 Tunguska (Siberia) explosion was caused by one of his experiments gone very wrong. Behold the Tesla tower, Wardenclyffe , built for wireless transmission of electricity, pre-WWI:

Ghost Dancer by John Case. Enjoy!

But since you are just down the road in Salem, and my husband and I have both read it twice, send me a PM with contact info and I will mail it to you.

Ooops. Sorry to ruin it and remind you that the area contains shock quartz (quartz exposed to more than 120 gigabars of pressure)There's also evidence for PGEs (platinum group elements - i.e. osmium, iridium, rhenium, etc.) in the immediate area of the blast. Those two clues alone signal meteorite explosion. Not an EM weapon.

But then again, you did say that the speculoids were there. Those are factoids gone awry. Interesting, but still bullshit.

Facts in a thread titled Tesla vs. Willy Wonka?????

An internet search for Tesla has enough theories to get him right up there with Area 51 and swamp gas. The book also said when he died, the FBI swooped in and confiscated his entire estate, including huge volumes of papers and research materials. Up until a few years ago, the FBI was (according to the internet) denying they had done this. Then earlier this year someone sued under the freedom of information act, and low and behold, Tesla papers appeared. Minus 3 years....

Tesla was a real person, that's why I included facts.

The rock band Tesla is also real, and I include them to kick ass.......

There is a museum being created at Wardenclyffe, according to a friend of mine who is involved. Pretty cool stuff.
