Mark Twain and Nikola Tesla. BFF?!?



Mark Twain and Nikola Tesla were BFF? Color me amazed. This picture from 1894 shows Twain in Tesla's lab getting his geek on. I had not heard about this friendship pairing until tonight and raced to the internet to find out "Whaaaa?" and, lo and behold, there are numerous stories online detailing their camaraderie. Wow. And what a great picture!

This sounds a little hinky to me. The dates and photo don't match
