Best. Summary. Ever.

Jan 7 1943

Nikola Tesla dead. The inventor of alternating current, Tesla was driven mad by Edison and spent his final days trying to invent a death ray.

I am torn between the hope that when I die, my life can be summed up in such a pithy and amusing fashion, and the realization that happy, productive people are rarely that funny.

Hmm...what would I want a one-sentence summary of my life to look like...?

"Founder of the Wombat Nouveau art movement, Vernon lived a long and productive life and left behind a respectable body of artwork including the famous Chicken Descending a Staircase, before dying in a freak wildebeest accident at the age of eighty-four."

Yeah, that'd work.
