Dr. Tesla Discussing The Ether Space Wave Theory

“It was evident to me that wireless transmission of energy, if it could ever be accomplished, is not an invention; it is an art. Bell’s telephone, Edison’s phonograph, or my induction motor were inventions, but the wireless transmission of energy is an art that requires a great many inventions in combination.

“We are living on a planet that is rushing through space; this planet is partly conducting and partly insulating. If it were all conducting, or if it were all insulating, we could not transmit energy without wire. It is only because it is partly conducting and partly insulating that a glorious future for man is reserved through the application of this art.”

–Nikola Tesla

(From a pre-hearing interview with Nikola Tesla and his legal counsel in 1916 to protect his radio patents from the Guglielmo Marconi and the Marconi Company.)

[Fig. 1]:
“We are living on a planet of well-nigh inconceivable dimensions, surrounded by a layer of insulating air above which is a rarefied and conducting atmosphere. This is providential, for if all the air were conducting the transmission of electrical energy thru the natural media would be impossible.” –NT

[Fig. 2]:
“My early experiments have shown that currents of high frequency and great tension readily pass thru an atmosphere but moderately rarefied, so that the insulating stratum is reduced to a small thickness as will be evident by inspection of [Fig. 2], in which a part of the earth and its gaseous envelope is shown to scale. If the radius of the sphere is 12½”, then the non-conducting layer is only 1/64″ thick and it will be obvious that the Hertzian rays cannot traverse so thin a crack between two conducting surfaces for any considerable distance, without being absorbed.” –NT

Founding Fathers as your family.

Benjamin Franklin: 69 year old grandfather who everyone is just waiting to die. He tells lots of dirty jokes and gets bad looks from all the soccer moms. You love him because he lets you drink and talks serious sex. 

George Washington: 54 year old uncle who everyone praises. Honestly he doesn’t ever want to go/host family gatherings but when he does he ends up being the BBQ’er. Pretty much talks shit about everyone when they leave.

John Adams: 48 year old uncle. Nobody talks to him, literally. Always brings up politics at the dinner table and you hear him barging into people’s conversations to say something super problematic. You’ll catch him drinking from a flask and not even hiding the fact that he is. 

Thomas Jefferson: 17 year old cousin. You’ll hear his Mom yelling at him to sit up straight or what the hell are you wearing. Everyone obsesses over all his many talents. He hates attention and doesn’t really talk. He is a music hoe.

James Madison: 12 year old cousin. You thought he was 8. Everyone always asks him if he’s okay- he’s never okay. He talks to quiet for you to hear but you pretend you’re listening anyways. You’re too afraid to touch him.

Alexander Hamilton: 14 year old cousin. Fuckboy alert. Probably one of the hottest people you know- too bad he’s your cousin. He is super into politics and is always fighting with Uncle Adams. You’re constantly venting about how much you hate him but like you don’t. He won’t shut the fuck up. Once beat up Uncle Adams when he was 4 and won.

James Monroe: 15 year old cousin. This is your nice cousin. Like your best friend cousin. Like the you’re-super-sensitive-and-tall-holy-shit cousin. He is so sensitive and you just wanna tell him to understand a joke. When the cousins get into fights *cough* Thomas *cough* Alexander- he’s always the one to step in and get everyone to calm the fuck down because Alexander is fucking rolling up his sleeves shit- fuck and then Adams steps in cuz that little bitch is always looking for a fight.

An angry PSA about DC’s Earth 2

ALRIGHT MOTHERFUCKERS 

ARE YOU THE TYPE WHO LIKES DIVERSE CHARACTERS IN COMICS?

BECAUSE I FUCKING LOVE IT

IF YOU DO YOU SHOULD READ MOTHERFUCKING Earth 2

So why should you read Earth 2?

I’M GLAD YOU ASKED

Alright, so the first thing we learn is that in this alternate universe, this evil dude named Darkseid (Might have heard of him. You know, the biggest evil asshole in the DC universe) invades the goddamn Earth with space demons and shit and like half of everyone died.

“But wait!” says you, the convenient representation of the readers, “This is a comic book! Where’s the superheroes?” WOO BOY HOLD ON TO YOUR HATS

Technically,they’re called Wonders in this place. Why? Cause motherfucking Wonder Woman showed up first and she gets to pick the names, dammit. So what does the classic dream team of Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman go and fuck shit up, but these demon assholes keep coming back like the world’s worst fucking boomerang. So what do our fair heroes do? 

THEY BLOW SHIT UP, THAT’S WHAT.

Yeah, that’s right, the Super-Trinity blows the fuck up saving the earth and kicking ass, because that’s how you go out.

So this leaves the space demons stranded, the Wonders of the World dead, and their sidekicks- Supergirl/Power Girl, aka Kara Zor-El, and Robin/Huntress aka HELENA FUCKING WAYNE get sent to the main earth and work their way back to kick ass.

So years later when shit starts to get real again, who comes back? The motherfucking Wonders, bitches.

So, these guys are based on the superheroes from the 40s except cooler, right? These motherfuckers are OGs. So who do we have?

EXAMPLE ONE! JAY MOTHERFUCKING GARRICK,  also known as THE FLASH, BITCHES

So Jay Garrick is a recent college student who hasn’t got shit to do. Sounds like a lot of us, right? But then he gets fucking super speed from none other than MERCURY, THE ROMAN GOD. Because what the hell is cooler than literal godspeed?

“But Tyler!” you say once more, “didn’t you say there was diversity? This is basically the same as most superheroes!”

WELL LET ME SHOW YOU THE GUYS AND GALS HE HANGS OUT WITH

EXAMPLE TWO, ALAN SCOTT: THE ORIGINAL GREEN LANTERN

So you remember that one movie a few years ago with Hal Jordan that did shit at the box office? Or the Justice League cartoon with John Stewart who was badass? Yeah, those two are cool, but this is ALAN MOTHERFUCKING SCOTT.

So, Scott’s a lot like ‘ole Bruce Wayne. He’s rich and owns a TV station and shit, lives the good life. He’s also fucking adorable with his boyfriend:

LOOK AT THESE TWO ADORABLE LIL SHITS. ALAN’S POWER RING IS EVEN THEIR ENGAGEMENT RING AND ITS GREAT EXCEPT NOT BECAUSE PLOT EVENTS.

So yeah, we’ve got your stereotypical white guy and  gay guy, pretty cool. But just you fuckin’ wait, it gets cooler the farther you go.

ON TO KENDRA MUNOZ-SAUNDERS, THE LATINA FUCKING HAWKGIRL

YEP, THAT’ RIGHT. Kendra motherfucking Munoz-Saunders is the Latina Hawkgirl with honest-to-god wings and guns akimbo, bitches. She’s also cool as a fuckin’ cucumber and takes absolutely no shit. Two avatars of nature duking it out? Like she gives a fuck.

That’s not even the half of it. Next we have a personal favorite, KHALID BEN-HASSIN, DOCTOR FATE.

LOOK AT THIS ADORABLE DORK. Khalid Ben-Hassin is an Arabic archaeologist who together with Kendra found the HELM OF KICKASS, OR NABU IF YOU WANT TO BE SERIOUS. Khalid puts that baby on and gets magic powers out the ass, man. Reality? FUCK THAT NOISE

Not only is Khalid an awesome representation of an Arabic superhero who doubles as my smol son, he’s technically mentally ill: after using the Helm, he has short bouts of insanity, trying to process the SHEER AMAZING OF FATE

MOVING RIGHT ALONG, WE’VE GOT POWERGIRL AND HUNTRESS, KARA ZOR-EL AND HELENA WAYNE, ALSO KNOWN AS THE BADDEST BITCHES AROUND

These two get sent over to regular earth when they and their families fuckin’ wreck Darkseid and his demon shits. So what do they do? They motherfucking get right back, because they’ve got shit to do. Kara isn’t the only supergod around either, because we’ve got…

VAL-ZOD, THE BLACK SUPERMAN

VAL-ZOD IS THE COOLEST MOTHERFUCKER AROUND, WHICH IS HIS HOBBY WHEN HE ISN’T EITHER BEING BETTER THAN KAL-EL OR BEATING THE SHIT OUT OF KAL-EL.

Val was also besties with Kara on Krypton, and they KICK ASS TOGETHER.

AND THAT ISN’T EVEN THE HALF OF IT. We’ve got ROBO-LOIS LANE AS RED FUCKING TORNADO, the black-ops team of the World Army, the SANDMEN lead by the SANDMAN HIMSELF. You’ve got SONIA SATO, WHO WILL KICK YOUR ASS BACKWARDS, MOTHERFUCKING AQUAWOMAN, and resident Commander-in-Badass COMMANDER AMAR KHAN, or THE ONLY SANE SON OF A BITCH IN THE ENTIRE WORLD ARMY.

So GO READ FUCKING EARTH 2

As we enter through the doors of the temple, we leave behind us the distractions and confusion of the world. Inside this sacred sanctuary, we find beauty and order. There is rest for our souls and a respite from the cares of our lives.

Friday, April 21: Blind Guardian, “Guardian of the Blind”

“Guardian of the Blind” epitomized the earliest material of one of Germany’s most beloved power metal institutions, presenting a group of thrash-happy misfits infatuated with J.R.R. Tolkien.  But while some things never change, Battalions of Fear’s second track bore little resemblance to Blind Guardian’s most famous work: the sheer frenzy of “Guardian of the Blind” would be jarring for anyone first introduced to the band via Imaginations from the Other Side, let alone Nightfall in Middle-Earth or At the Edge of Time.  Thomas “Thomen” Stauch’s drumming was pure mania, outpacing the rest of the band by several laps- no wonder Hansi Kϋrsch eventually hung up his bass to focus on singing, there was no way he could ever keep up.  The song captured Blind Guardian’s hunger and drive to outrace every other band in Germany, but none of the bombast and grandeur that would come to define the band as soon as their third album.
