    Tesla-Trump

    In 1934...inventor Nikola Tesla — instrumental in developing the alternating-current electricity system — announced that he had attempted to design a device that would send a ‘death beam’ of concentrated particles to detect and destroy submarines... US government agents looked into the proposal after Tesla’s death, but reviewer John G. Trump, an electrical engineer (and uncle of the current US president), declared it too speculative.

    "declared it too speculative"

    As he was instructed to say?
  1.  
    That's nothing. I once shook hands with someone who shook hands with Mikhail Gorbachev. And I also worked with someone who dated Nikola Tesla's niece.

    Therefore collusion.

    I once (almost,2m distance) ran into Bootsy Collins at work and was shocked for a second or two because with that big hat and all that glitter my brain thought he was a giant insect or an alien or something.
