The company is named after renowned electrical engineer and physicist Nikola Tesla and based off of his original ideas from 1882!

In 2009, GM Vice-Chairmain Robert Lutz said in the New Yorker, “All the geniuses here at General Motors kept saying lithium-ion technology is 10 years away, and Toyota agreed with us — and boom, along comes Tesla.”

If you haven’t heard of Jeremy Lin yet then you clearly aren’t a sports fan. This 23 year old Asian-American rookie out of Harvard has become the first mega-sensation of 2012. From being cut by two teams, to living on his brother’s couch, to scoring 38 points in a primetime game against Kobe Bryant’s Lakers, this guy has been on a wild rollercoaster ride. Similar to Tebowing with a little Chuck Norris flair, people are getting creative with Mr. Lin by altering his name and dreaming up fables about his life.

Even though Lakers forward Metta World Peace thinks Lin needs to get more ‘swag’, Linsanity is undeniably a worldwide phenomenon. People have already bought every Jeremy Lin domain name you can imagine with the hopes of cashing in on the excitement. The spirit is very contagious, some might even say Lintagious (terrible). We at Astounde decided to put our brains together, have some pun, and create the ultimate Jeremy Lin word collection. Hope you enjoy it!
