This Guy Drunkenly Designed An Airplane And Doesn't Remember Any Of It


The guy who designed an entire airplane while he was drunk is way better at being not sober than you are.

Everyone deals with alcohol in different ways.

After taking a few drinks down, some people can change into more interesting versions of themselves at parties. Other people turn into wildly aggressive yet confident fight machines.

Some humans will even consistently pass out on the futon in my living room after pouring an entire box of Cheez-Its on the floor.

(That last one is me.)

Then, there is Keith Fraley's roommate, “Mark,” a mechanical engineering student at Michigan Tech who spends his drunken nights designing entire airplanes.

If you're confused, don't worry about it. You should be confused because that sentence makes no sense.

Keith told The Guardian, “Mark,” who is trying to remain anonymous for some dumb reason, designed and worked out the math behind an entire aircraft one night, woke up the next morning, sketched out what the plane -- which is actually an ekranoplan -- would look like, while still completely smashed, and then fell asleep again.

He then allegedly woke up an hour later with no recollection of what happened.

Keith uploaded images of his roommate's work to Twitter two days ago in a post that since went incredibly viral.

The story behind the events that led to the project are a weird mix of “A Beautiful Mind” and “Animal House.”

Keith told The Guardian,

Basically, Mark is like if Will Hunting and Stifler had a baby.

There are no major plans to produce a full working version of the creation, but Mark is apparently looking to make a small-scale model of the ekranoplan with his colleagues.

Good job, Mark. Maybe you can invent something that can get Cheez-It residue off of my futon next. I'm a mess.
