Nikola Tesla's greatest challenge: He could measure electricity but not stupidity


Re: Noted scientists

"Britain, typically, put Isaac Newton on the lowest denomination banknote -- £1."

Not only that, they messed up by putting the sun in the wrong place on the diagram of the Earth's orbit (the sun should have been at one of the focal points of the ellipse, not at the centre). Ironic, considering that Newton was also in charge of the Royal Mint at one point in his career.
