Drunk History Presents Nikola Tesla *NSFW*

Amazingly accurate for someone so plastered. I think all history should be taught at this level of intoxication.

Because it's funny. Front page funny. And it mixes comedy with an often overlooked icon in our world. I've read books on Tesla and I've read his patents and he truly was a remarkably gifted man. Yet I didn't hear about him until college.

Why? Probably because Edison was a pompous jerk. Probably because Tesla was an immigrant. Probably because he expressed too many alternative ideas ... some of which had serious merit and continue to influence us in new ways until this very day.

And yet one of the few routes we have to raise public awareness about him is very well filmed and choreographed internet videos ... because tesla wasn't The American Inventor Thomas Edison that every American School child Must learn about.

I disagree with your hard line "no cookie" stance and instead offer the Slashdot Editor trapped in my basement a full cookie and the ability to rub his eyeball on my shoe. I thoroughly enjoyed the throwing up of absinthe mixed with pineapple as well as the "Tesla was the Electric Jesus" statement.

All you have to do, girlintraining is filter Idle so that it doesn't appear on your front page. It's in your preferences.

In my preferences? Well, I prefer androgynous looking girls, with a strong personality, good sense of humor, and stunning eyes. Don't care so much about smoking or race, but heavy drug use is a kill-joy. I don't see why slashdot needs to know this though, but whatever. Will the pain stop now?

Could you give me a non-subjective definition of "good sense of humor"? How about an objective definition of "heavy drug use"? Because you can buy absinthe (grande wormwood even) nearly everywhere in the states now. Turns out it's never really been illegal after prohibition. Or perhaps six beers is heavy drug use? Or perhaps the coffee/energy drink he drank that morning? Or perhaps the high fructose corn syrup from the bread in his sandwich that he threw up? Maybe I should inform my coworker that takes an aspirin everyday that I don't enjoy his heavy drug use in my office space?

While unhealthy and stupid, six beers and a half bottle of absinthe does not equate to a high probability of death or risk of life destroying addiction. I'm fine that you hold your own odd standard of 'heavy drug use' but the chemicals consumed by this individual are approved for sale in the United States. On top of that, people have been getting blitzed for millennia and a video labeled *NSFW* means violence, nudity, adult language, drug or alcohol use and the same things that make movies rated for more mature audiences. Simply put: don't watch a video rated *NSFW* if 'heavy drug use' offends you or results in a "kill-joy." I'm quite comfortable laughing at other peoples stupid decisions and somewhat insightful -- though crude -- blathering on topics I hold dear.

Re:Death (0)

Why should she have to give a non-subjective definition? She only used them in the context of a subjective description.

Maybe I should inform my coworker that takes an aspirin everyday that I don't enjoy his heavy drug use in my office space?

Am I getting "Wooshed" or something? Maybe my sarcasm detector is on the fritz, but that and several other sentences you gave are a textbook strawman.

Wait...do you think that was supposed to be a judgment of the guy on the video being drunk? Even though he's neither a girl nor androgynous? I think you're pulling her phrase out of one context and into another.

Yes! Tesla has been overlooked and neglected and we need videos of drunks puking into toilets while telling us the fascinating history of Tesla. Tesla deserves that much, doesn't he? Tesla was a genius that deserves respect and honor. Respect and honor, such as that shown here by a drunk laying on the floor alternating between details of Tesla's life and moaning that he is too drunk to go on.

Re:Lightweight! (0)

Bollocks. Absinth has a super high amount of alchohol, and a stimulant which makes the person not feel the effects of alcohol itself. THat's why the guy can talk and reason so much while being utterly wasted.

Think of it as the victorian era, steampunk redbull.

That's why people don't feel the effect as much, and there was a high rate of deaths because of absinth.

It's also one of the reasons it is banned in many countries nowadays (such as Brazil).

It's 70-90% alcohol with a hallucigenic drug mixed in.

Re:Lightweight! (2, Informative)

h3llfish (663057) | more than 4 years ago | (#31614880)

That is incorrect. It's certainly a highly potent alcoholic spirit, but it has no hallucinogenic drugs in it. That part is pretty much made up. It's basically just regular booze. It's certainly nothing like Psilocybin mushrooms.

Re:Lightweight! (1, Informative)

Still incorrect. It is not hallucinogenic but a neurotoxin produced by the wormwood. So, all those 18th century french poets were not hallucinating but damaging their brains

Upper right of the page you're viewing has a "Help & Account" link. Click it or open it into a new tab. If you are using the dynamic index like most, click "Exclusions" under that heading. Enter "Idle" into the text box and hit save. While you will probably miss stories like "Bill Gates Sits Idle as World Burns" you will not see any Idle: stories on your front page. In the classic index, you can select sections and remove Idle. I don't know why the dynamic index doesn't have this granularity of exact control yet.

Beer before liquor never been sicker and liquor before beer never fear.

Most bottles are a fifth. About ~3.1 pints. ~10 shots per pint. So you drank more volume than he did. However if you drank about ~8-9 more shots you would have caught up.

Re:Pretty weak constitution (3, Informative)

BKX (5066) | more than 4 years ago | (#31615186)

Uh, no. A fifth is 18 shots (a pint of liquor is 250 mL vs 750 mL for a fifth (yes, I know is seems wrong, but the names for those sized bottles no longer match their volumes, not even in the US)). Therefore a pint, being exactly one third of a fifth, is 6 shots. I define a shot as 42 mL, which is strikingly close to the US government's definition of 44 mL (1.5 fl oz).

And don't start claiming that is shot is some other size like 1 fl oz or 30 mL or some bullshit. It's slightly less than 1.5 fl oz, dammit. In fact, there MUST be 18 shots in a fifth. That way I can finish my bottle of whisky just as I start the 18th hole. (And now you know why there are 18 holes in a full round of golf.)

Re:Pretty weak constitution (1)

damien_kane (519267) | more than 4 years ago | (#31617632)

Actually they do match.

A "fifth" is actually 1/5gal, or "one fifth of a gallon". This is 25.6oz of fluid, which is why in Canada we call it a "26'er"
Google [google.ca] translates this to 757.082357 ml.
Further, I'm not sure where you get your pints, but a 355ml bottle of beer isn't enough to fill a proper pint glass.
A pint is 16oz, 450ml, just shy of 2/3 of a fifth. A standard bottle of beer is 12oz. If you're only getting 250ml when you step up to the bar, I would hope you head back there now and get your change.

Re:Pretty weak constitution (2, Interesting)

adolf (21054) | more than 4 years ago | (#31619494)

I thought the discussion was about liquor, not beer.

I usually buy my liquor in handles. These traditionally contained half a gallon, but have been abbreviated to 1.75 liters.

Meanwhile, actually in actuality, the fifths sold here in Ohio are 750ml, not 757.082357ml. Canada is no different -- your 26'er, at 25.360517 fluid ounces, is a lot closer to being a 25'er than its name would imply.

There are also 1-liter bottles available (often referred to as a quart, even though that's also wrong).

Further, from Wikipedia [wikipedia.org] :

A 375 ml bottle of liquor in the US and the Canadian maritime provinces is sometimes referred to as a "pint" and a 200 ml bottle is called a "half-pint," harking back to the days when liquor came in actual US pints, quarts, and half-gallons.

Besides, everyone knows that a pint of beer is either 16 or 20 ounces in this hemisphere, though nobody can agree on which ounces to use. Except in Canada [vancouversun.com] , where a pint of beer might be 500ml, or might be 20 imperial ounces.

(Just because it's true, doesn't mean it has to make sense. I, for one, was simply satisfied to finally understand that the reason there are 18 shots in a fifth is only because there's 18 holes on a golf course -- the logic seemed so infallible. And then you had to show up and make a scene of things...sigh.)

Re:Pretty weak constitution (1)

AshtangiMan (684031) | more than 4 years ago | (#31616400)

I've made it a few times, and while the prim and proper like to drink it mixed (very ceremoniously) with sugar and water it is very fine straight up. I brought a bottle to a party which a bunch of us passed around. And then mad hilarity struck . . . it's different than regular booze and I highly recommend making it for yourself. You will need to set up a still, because after you macerate the wormwood and other herbs in everclear (or wine spirits) you mix with water and then distill the final product (you can add another round of wormwood and anise etc to color it, but I've done it both ways and the coloration does not affect the flavor). I'd suggest an old pressure cooker with the rattle top removed and connected to clear tubing as the base for an easy temporary still set up.

I think it's better if drunks stay with discussing women and sports, than venture into dangerous areas like the history of science. Unless they're me.

I wonder which Term of Service was Breached.

How long was the term? 7 years? What was the sentence?
What service had to be kill -9'd? Oh, I meant "process".
What ended up On The Beach, because "Breached" just has to be a typo, although possibly a whale, or a big shark, swam onto the beach?

Oh, well.

And I forgot to log into Slashdot today, too. Whatta day.

Fuck idle.

There. Maybe we can get a 2000 post discussion all saying the same two words. Then maybe crap like this won't make it to the front page anymore. I mean really. Who voted this shite up? When did slashdot become digg?

It's still out there (0)
