Okay, you all know me here, and my character's ongoing obsession with Tesla-
Chic: He's so DREAMY! The God of Electricity!
Thor: Hey! I 'M-
Chic: YOU throw lightning bolts. Didya ever make a Tesla coil? Huh? Didya? Or invent radio? Or Alternating Current? Or-
Thor: *grumbles* Allright, allright already!
Ahem.
Many of you have seen the post on Oatmeal about Nikola Tesla-the greatest scientist that ever lived. There's a new post. It seems the land that was the site of Wardenclyffe Tower is for sale. Yes, the tower was pulled down, but the land, laboratory, and foundation are still there. There are two organizations in the run to buy it.
A) A nonprofit that wants to build a Tesla Museum. If they buy it, it's permanently protected as a historic site.
B) A company that wants to raze it all and build a shopping mall.
Go here. The Oatmeal explains it better.

I'm not expecting the readers of the MSW to rise up en masse and fund this. I'm broker than broke myself. What I'm asking is if this is a cause you support, to get the word out. Blog about it, Tumblr it, whatever newfangled thing you kids do these days.
As devotees of mad science, can we do any less?
Thank you.

Do you think I had the 1st idea what a squidhole was when I invented it? Certainly not! I was just messing about! That's when the very best & very Maddest Science gets done. I thought,Why, this alabaster octopus looks like it wants a nice transmission inside it,& fairly soon I had a thing that obviously had a Use, though what that Use could be was a total mystery.
(Sameness Engine) I haven't the 1st notion of what it's for! That's not why I made it-I made it for the sheer joy of making something new! It's getting up to tell me what it wants me to do, though, I can just feel it. It's been giggling a lot at night.
