God-is-a-Taco: A musician, a boxer, and even Steve Jobs?
Tywin Lannister: How could they have overlooked this influential person:
doglover: DC current.
This text is now purple: falcon444: Technically George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were British and Einstein was German.George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were British in the same way Arubans are Dutch and Canadians are British.
Aeonite: No Jesus?
Icetech3: Icetech3: Wow.. i seem to never remember to not read lists... Tesla isn't on this list?!? He only powered our entire world.. thats all.. nothing major.. but jobs is on the list? Stinky no deodorant using dickhead... that sold cell phones... yeah that seems right..Bah..im an idiot.. forgot tesla wasn't an american:( still... fark jobs...
Sid_6.7: There are countless people more influential in the course of American history than Jobs.
doglover: In 2012, we still don't see any Einstein influence in our day to day life,
Lsherm: doglover: cman: doglover: Albert EinsteinAmerican as Germany.He did become an American citizen.Eventually. If we're going to be talking about great Americans though, I'd say Tesla did more for you and me in our daily lives than Einstein, who really didn't do much of anything outside of theoretical physics. Sure, relativity is important to satellites, but electricity itself is Tesla's gift. Much good your radio phone would be if you couldn't charge it and every tower was run on DC current.MARCONI!OK, not an American. But for an Italian, he did good.
dickfreckle: Yet I'm glad both he and Ali are on here because they both are more than just the sum of their parts.
