5 July: Tesla’s biggest secret – always drink three bottles of wine.

Some time ago – on the day that Alan Turing released one of his crucial papers – this site pointed out that the world is divided into teetotallers (aka boring idiots,) the rest of us (aka as people who are fun, gregarious and often drunken who don’t always achieve as much as we should) and then – in the final group are the absolute geniuses who the rest of us should be in awe of.

Step forward Nikola Tesla. Today is Tesla Day and indeed that should be  enough reason enough to drink wine to celebrate the life of a revolutionary scientist whose work ultimately transformed the lives of millions.

But somehow, despite his genius, he was also like us. I give you : “Tesla had particular difficulties interacting with authority figures, especially his employers. This was due in part to his superior understanding.”

Just like us – he was surrounded by fuckwits intent on making his life a misery because they didn’t understand things in the nice simple straightforward way that we do. (This is me at work down to a tee – my genius totally unrecognised by people around me attend meetings to discuss chairs and spreadsheets. )

But, even better – for our purposes at least – is that Tesla was obsessed with doing things in threes.

So – today to celebrate his legend – buy yourself three (3) bottles of wine and then tomorrow ring in sick and take three (3) days off to really stick it to the big boss person to show them how indispensable you (and Tesla’s electricity) are. (Ideally spend those three days finding three teenagers to hack the works e mail system and sent three offensive e mails to the top three paid members of staff every three houts signed, mysteriously as ‘Nikola Three.’ Imagine the drama!)
