Tumblr: help me buy back Nikola Tesla’s old laboratory.
My jaw literally dropped when I read that someone else wants to buy the land, tear it down and turn it into a fucking retail establishment.
no nO NO
WE NEED THIS MUSEUM IN ALL OF OUR LIVES TESLA HAS BEEN LOOKED OVER IN HISTORY FOR TOO LONG GODDAMN
LET’S MAKE THIS HAPPEN
I’m pretty sure there’s people who know who Thomas Edison is, but are completely unaware of just who Tesla is. And there are people who don’t know Tesla coils aren’t just for great evil lab movie props.
REBLOGGING AGAIN BECAUSE LETS MAKE THIS HAPPEN NOW
DONATE EVEN $1.
THEY HAVE 45 DAYS LEFT TO TURN THE $350,000 THEY HAVE RIGHT NOW INTO $850,000
Tesla was a genius, and this may finally mean more people will realize what a great inventor he was. Only my brother may know just how much this means to me. To have his very laboratory torn to the ground just kills me. To have his very laboratory torn to the ground just for a retail store is unspeakable, I can’t even handle it.
Whoever is trying to buy out that land just for a retail store… I just… They must not understand.
You don’t just tear down a dead genius’ very lab.
Please, donate anything, even just a little.
I’m dirt broke, but damn does it feel good that I gave $5 to something I believe will succeed.
If you can’t donate, than spread the word.
This needs to happen.
This needs to happen, people.
