    Both Tesla and Edison ignored people like me because that was a competition between two experts being sold to the public. Rossi is not selling anything but hopes and dreams so far. If Rossi were to do what Tesla and Edison did in promoting their respective ideas, there would be no debate about Rossi's claims.

    Tesla was the DC guy, not only that, but he had broadcast power. It could be picked up by receivers.

    They are rolling the dice....

    What I mean is that while I follow dreams and support the dreamers, I don't rely on dreams. Dreaming is required for living, but we must also keep our feet on the ground to achieve practical function.

    If you have to google on a subject such as this, maybe you should stay out the conversation, and educate yourselfs first.

    That's quite a pompous statement there Roy. I will admit to not knowing about a lot of things in a thread's subject until I do a search on it and read up on it.

    Maybe you should educate yourself about why things such as cold fusion are not as viable as those making money from attempting to develop it claim they are.

    By your reasoning, one can only assume you have a lot of snake oil in your medicine cabinet.

    You are probably right it was a bit harsh, and I'm not known to be that way in here, but....

    Since he is a professional in here, and has worked who knows how long on the very technology that Mr. Tesla has given to us, it kind of rubbed me the wrong way, especially in an open to the public part of the forum.

    Not to mention that it was after I already made the statement that Tesla was the inventor of ac current, and he attempted to discredit me, and didnt have enough sense to at least look it up first.

    It's kind of funny on the subject of the battle between Tesla and Edison. Whenever the subject comes up, someone always makes the comment that Edison won the day by promoting AC current. I guess it's because Edison is so much better known then Tesla is that the assumption is often made.
