Tesla was, probably, an alien.

Here's something I clicked from the TV screen......being shown and noted as a "Time Traveler".....It was a video from 1928 in front of the Gramman Chinese Theater in LA....the interesting part is it looks like the individual is talking on a "CELL PHONE" (in 1928) as they walked along the street....you'll probably have a hard time determining this, but just thought you may like it........."an alien"......

Gotta love PR. Edison comes up with DC power, Tesla comes up with AC power (not to mention so many other things which many thing come from Edison), so why are power companies named after Edison? Perhaps because Tesla was not in it for the money.

Hi, I believe you have herd about Nikola Tesla and his patents. He spoke once about what is going to be invented and used in future including cellphones. Knowing what kind of strange man was Charlie Chaplin, it is most than certainly possible that he put walking and talking women in his film on purpose. Lots of years passed before someone like you have noticed his trick))
