That's hilarious!  ;D - and so damn true!

It took me a few years, but I've mastered the fine art of asking people to f*** off, or to "Google it!", depending on how fond of them I am. :P

So not that I don't think Tesla was amazing or anything (because he totally was!), but The Oatmeal lies about Edison in this "infographic."

About 75% through the thing he says he won't complain about Edison any more and then at the end he goes on to call Edison a "douche" in a variety of ways.

And still manages to understate the case~! :P

Long rants are funny, because they sorta numb you into submission.
