    • Nikola Tesla

      In the first segment "I, Meatbag" at the end of the Nobel Prize party, three scientists are seen being hit by the discharge of a Tesla Coil.

      Nikola Tesla was deprived several times of a much deserved Nobel Prize, most notably for his invention of the Radio. Tesla's patent for the radio was reversed and awarded to Guglielmo Marconi in 1904 and Marconi would receive the Nobel Prize for that invention in 1909.

      Tesla died in 1943, at the age of 86. Later that year the US Supreme Court recognized him as the inventor of radio uphelding Tesla's patent number U.S. Patent 645,576.
