122. Nicely argued!
In case you might be impugning Tesla's veracity or intelligence, and not that of the author of the description I quoted (I haven't looked into it enough to confirm the quote), you might want to check this out. Tesla knew a bit about science and technology, in at least one par case more than Edison himself.

I look forward to another pithy response from you...

"In November and December of 1887, Tesla filed for seven U.S. patents in the field of polyphase AC motors and power transmission. These comprised a complete system of generators, transformers, transmission lines, motors and lighting. So original were the ideas that they were issued without a successful challenge, and would turn out to be the most valuable patents since the telephone.
