This super-hungover engineering student can’t remember designing this amazing plane
After a night of heavy drinking, the majority of college students only focuses on one thing — passing out. However, this wasn’t the case for one Michigan Tech student who decided to turn his drunken thoughts in to a design for an incredibly badass plane. The student, who is only going by the alias “Mark,” went out for a fun Friday night at the bar and when he got home was met by his roommate Kevin, who distinctly remembered the whole incredible thing.
Don’t mind the rambling — Drunken Einstein at work
As Kevin recalls, Mark barged in to his room, drunk after several rum and vodka drinks, grabbed his engineering textbooks and left almost as quickly as he came. Mark later returned to grab Kevin’s giant whiteboard and proceeded to spend the next few hours murmuring to himself and drawing. Around one in the morning, Mark finished his product, which left Kevin in awe.
A stupendous stupor — A drunk, literal fly-by-night operation
While it’s not entirely uncommon to think of a very drunk person doodling while murmuring to himself, you wouldn’t expect coherent, Einstein-level work to come out of it. Turns out, Mark actually designed what’s known as a ekranoplan, which is “a high-speed aircraft that floats above the water.” Out to nearly the last intricate detail, with the necessary working equations. Well, whatever is it, it’s pretty damn impressive compared to what most college kids do when they are drunk.
