Is That A Big Brain Or Are You Just Happy To See Me?

This is Nikola Tesla.

According to Wikipedia, he was  a Serbian American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current electricity supply system.

A reader sent me this photo.

Said it looks like me.

Kinda, I guess.

There are similarities.

Especially the big nose, big ears, dark features.

And our faces are sort of shaped the same.

I found out this picture is from 1890.  Which would put Tesla at about age 34.  Four years younger than I am now.

Reading up on him, turns out we have other similarities.

He was tall and skinny.

A loner.

Had OCD.

Didn’t sleep much.

Sort of my fancy pants doppelgänger.

But, we have one obvious difference:

He was a genius.

Well…two.

Apparently he was also celibate his entire life.1

So, our brains are in totally different places.

UPDATE:

The universe threw Telsa in my path again this morning when I stumbled across this photo:

I can really see much more similarity here.  We have pretty much identical builds.

Looks like he could match my size 14s.

Plus, if he was a swimming instructor, we’re both strong swimmers, too.

It’s getting weird.

  2. As are other parts of your anatomies if he really was celibate!

  3. You have similar shaped eyebrows and nose. Gives an appearance of lineage.
