6 Historic Figures That Were Celibate

1 ) Nikola Tesla

The Serbian inventor that is most famous for winning the War of Currents also loved pigeons. He spent years inventing things he never got credit for, like the light bulb and radio, and even believed he could control the weather. He also felt that sex was a drain on creativity and completely pushed aside any woman that was interested in him. Sarah Bernhardt, a famous actress, tried her hardest to woo him but he considered her to be little more than a distraction from inventing a death ray. When asked about marriage, he replied: “I do not think you can name many great inventions that have been made by married men.”

Apart from the fact that in the show the character of telsa is a smug unlikable twat.

Despite this, he seems to have developed a huge following in some fannish circles.


though I suspect this may be a case of positive peer reinforcement.

I'm waiting for him to get staked or decapitated.

So there's another way to become a famous artist/scientist, you don't have to turn into an alcoholic or a drug addict, you can just stay celibate!

Cool, maybe I'll become an artist after all ;)

LOL. I LOVE your reasoning...BUT, it IS sci fi. I still ship John/Magnus. I know, I know...but I do. And I've been Will/Ashley since I saw the first webisode, so...yeah. :)

I do have to say, though, the idea of Tesla/Magnus is, well, interesting.

HA!

Seriously. he's the lovechild of Eric mabius and Seth green. He's amusing and I dislike him but not as completely, like Lucius Lavin. He's a somewhat tragic character but....like draco malfoy, he's a twat no matter how much you want to rehabilitate him.




seriously.
