When Mr. Jurgens gave him an F on his project, Pete got really upset.
“Edison couldn’t understand that Tesla saw his inventions in visions,” Pete yelled. “They came to him in dreams and he built them!”
“Yes but Tesla’s inventions were functional. This isn’t.”
This took place in front of the whole class, which is how Pete got the nickname.
You see his work all over town. A mechanical spinning chicken that lays candy eggs. The monkey perpetually pedaling a bicycle back and forth across a tightrope.
None of these machines have a function either, but people love love them.
