That's not enough. It need 1.21 gigawatts.

"One point twenty-one jiggawatts"?

That's heavy.

With modern technology Edison could rid the World of all those pesky elephants, too.

Maybe subby should use it to go back in time and prevent Fark Repeats too.

Didn't Edison already defeat Tesla when the past happened the first time? Why would he need to go back and do it again?

Forgot to trigger the save point? I hate it when I do that.

No, Tesla won the war of currents.

AC was a much much better way to go than DC. Edison's support of DC was due only to his stupidity, ignorance and greed. But now DC is better for transmission.

I understand accidental duplicated stories via other media outlets, but the link is identical. I thought the "submission thingee" rejects them if they were already submitted? Did someone spill something on the server again?

The best part? It can do the same thing again and again and again.

The electromagnetic pollls show Edison with a clear lead among likely current. But the Ohm daily tracking has the race tied. Clearly the polls are biased and I don't need to tell you that "fairness" language from the Edison camp about taking turns is a clear appeal to communism, where Tesla's plain speech and directness appeals to the traditional hard working Ions. In the end however both sides use pander to the extremes and are more interested in you being a conductive little electron to drive their engine of oppression of the resistance. Both sides are bad.

Because Edison is also one of history's greatest dick's?

TINY bit unfair there... Edison thought we were all going to have neighborhood generators.

Edison was an assh*le. He electrocuted an elephant for farks sake. F*ck him.
