Well, it seems to be a misattributed quote indeed... Though I'm not sure how they proved such a negative. I don't trust snopes or mentalfloss anymore than those touting the quote. Though Sam did love a good porterhouse steak and wasn't a fan of censorship whatsoever.

Interesting aside, I just found out that Sam and Nikola Tesla were good friends!

That image of Tesla is... something special. An apparition.

Fake news. Twain didn't say it. Nice sentiment though.

Nobody knows. It started appearing around 2000. It's similar to a quote from Heinlein. Do a search on the entire quote.
