Tesla Tuesday: OCD

People suspect that Tesla suffered from Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), which was not a classified illness in his time but considered a symptom of insanity. He would always sit at the same table at his hotel restaurants, have 18 napkins brought over so he can clean his silverware, plates, and glasses due to his great fear of germs. He never shook hands with people; also before entering a building he would circle the block 3 times. He was disgusted by anyone else’s hair; he hated jewelry especially pearl necklaces, and loathed perfume. He had so many phobias he couldn’t engage into relationships with women and he remained celibate all his life.

September 11, 2001, Jeff and Vijaya had just arrived in Norway for a comics festival in Bergen. Illustrating the experience of what it was like to be far from home that day, these original art pieces were donated to the “9-11: Emergency Relief” graphic novel which was a fundraiser for the American Red Cross.
