    Tesla although he was a remarkable man, I don't think he was all the way smart, the man was the worst with his finances, literally not smart. At one point he was a millionaire, but he never even bought a house, The house would have saved him some of this stuff he had to go through when he went broke.

    @DrunkSperm Tesla was a weird guy , most of the things that were normal to people, tesla did not care about them, for one he was famous and known but he never had a women, in a world were he could've had any women he wanted, But he did not care about them, the same could be said about why he never got a house. Simply just did not see a need.
