Tesla's last remaining laboratory is on sale for $1.6 million.

This is not so much the news, although it is interesting because the broker is trying to have the buildings levels and preservationists are now trying to raise the money to buy it.

The news is that my father just emailed me saying he wants to put in an offer.

So, earlier today I linked to the New York Times article about Wardenclyffe, Tesla's lab in New York, that is being sold for $1.6 million. Right now, The Tesla Science Center is trying to raise the money tobuy the land, prevent the lab from being torn down, and turn it into a museum.

So I am here to help them, with the blessing of my father, who claims he is Tesla's living reincarnation.

They don't have a paypal button up yet and can only accept checks, so if you would like to give money to help preserve the place where Tesla almost invented wireless electricity-- and that still has GIANT WALK-IN BATTERY CELLS, I would like to offer up my own paypal to forward the money to them.

If you donate $20 or more, I will totally draw you a picture of Tesla to your PG-rated specifications. That is my incentive to you. It might take a while if a lot of people donate, but I will draw lots and lots of Tesla if need be. Tesla eating cookies. Tesla writing his name on the moon with a moon laser. Tesla inventing Peeps. Tesla as a bunny rabbit. You name it.

If you can't donate that much money, please consider donating a small amount. If you and your friends want to pool your money for a pic that is okay, too. I just had to set a threshold for offering art.

Plus, if anyone would like to pass this along, you can use the nifty copy/paste code below:
