Kate Beaton looks at Tesla and the ladies.
by David Ng
Kate is awesome as always.
Tesla was celibate and never married, claiming that his chastity was very helpful to his scientific abilities. However, towards the end of his life, he told a reporter, “Sometimes I feel that by not marrying, I made too great a sacrifice to my work….” There have been numerous accounts of women vying for Tesla’s affection, even some madly in love with him. Tesla, though polite and soft-spoken, behaved ambivalently towards these women in the romantic sense. (Wikipedia)
