    Tesla, at the press conference honoring his 77th birthday in 1933 declared that electric power was everywhere present in unlimited quantities and could drive the worlds machinery without the need of coal, oil, gas, or any other fuels.

    A reporter asked if the sudden introduction of his principle wouldn't upset the present economic system...

    Tesla replied, "It is badly upset already."

    "It is also why arsonists tend to favor gasoline. Trying to set the side of a building on fire with a battery pack is far less effective."


    Elon Musk, Nov 2013 in response to three Tesla car fires.

    Optimism, pessimism, f@&$ that; we’re going to make it happen. As God is my bloody witness, I’m hell-bent on making it work.
