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

    6 American beers and half an absinthe? Come back when you've downed the best part of a bottle of whisky and a handfull of shrooms, and we can talk.

      Mod parent up. If you're lucid while throwing up, then it just means you are a goddamn pantywaist pussweed hippy who can't hold his liquor. Like Edison.

      o.O Absinthe is basically a bottle of whisky with shrooms.

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

        No it isn't. It used to be when it was illegal and made with more amounts of worm wood, but now worm wood is trace at best.

          If made the proper way, even back then i didn't have any real "hallucigenic" in it. The heat breaks it down.

        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.

        This site has a pretty good FAQ:

        Only when made right. He was probably drinking legal American Absinth. I know a few Americans who made the mistake in Southern or Easrtern Europe to order Absinth. They didn't feel too good, neither did I, because I was stupid enough to drink with them..

          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

    Than watching a grown man laying in a bathroom about to throw up saying "Tesla ... was the Electric Jesus ... I can't breath." Well done, good sir. I only hope this weekend has in store for me the same beauty that you have gifted to the internet.

    What setting am I missing that blocks idle from appearing on the main page?

      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. I'd give you links but they're javascripty popups so take care if you have javascripty blocking mechanisms.

        That's like saying it's no biggie that large, hairy gay men are winking suggestively at you on the street since they aren't actually pinning you down and having their way with you.

        (Apologies to gays who are into that sort of thing.)

          I would agree with that statement. That's their first amendment right to do so. (Apologies to those reading from countries without free speech)

      You drank half a bottle of absinthe and a six pack of beer before your thesis defense?

  • So does that other guy.
  • Crispin Glover was there and I still dont have a Flux Capacitor or even a hoverboard? Im pissed and I blame it all on Edison.

  • I'd never puked from drinking until this past fall, me, at 31yrs old, until I had 1 and a half pints of Jeager, 2 Vicodin, and 6 malt beverages and 3-4 mixed shots, in the time span of around 3 hours.
    I can't imagine hurling on a 6 pack + half a bottle (however much that is) of Absinth.
    • I've never had Absinthe, but after I had researched it a bit it appears you're not supposed to drink it straight up but rather in small amounts mixed with very chilled water. So the story is BS anyway.
      • 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

      Recognized Krispy early on, Reilly not right away. Thought I saw Jason Lee, as well. lulz

      • I recognized Crispin right off (having just seen Alice in Wonderland) but couldn't think of Reilly's name until the credits, I just kept thinking, that dumb cop in Magnolia (who I really like).
  • History, a few swear words, and vomit. Work at the nunnery must be rough.
  • You guys all realize this is a Funny or Die presents video that was re-done with the drunk guy narrating it thats why the actors are in there. Still hilarious though.

    This would be far better if he was stoned. Say what you will, but getting a smart person on a stoned rant can be entertaining. And they don't puke in the middle either.
  • It now displays, "This video has been removed due to a breach of the Terms of Service."

  • 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?
