Its bugged to see that Nicola Tesla is all the rave this year in the science world. It’s never too late to recognize genius I guess.

It’s a picture that’s sure to make your hair stand on end.
A daredevil inventor has created a shocking new image of Rodin’s ‘The Thinker’ – by shooting 500,000 volts of electricity down his body as he sat in the pose.
Using a home-built Tesla coil pieced together from junk and bits from hardware stores, Peter Terren risked his life to make the electrifying image.
He was also only protected from painful death by electrocution by a layer of cheap builders’ foil.
Terren, from Bunbury, Western Australia,said: ‘I wanted to convey the concept of the modern electrical age with the barrage of electrical interference in our lives. So much is happening and demanding our attention that it is difficult to “think”.
‘I decided upon a real life posture like the thinker with a lot of electrical activity around me with sparks onto my body.’
