I really do not want this thread to die. And since we are having bad times here in the swamp, I think we should have some intellegent discussion.

Yes but Michelangelos name wasn't Da Vinci. That was Leonardos. Michelangelo Buonarroti is the sculptor and painter you're thinking of. There never was a Michelangelo Da Vinci

And whats your point? Theres no reason to go offtopic. I thought we could have at least 1 intellegent (sp?) thread here that can have some discussion that involves thinking. But, if you don't like it, then you don't have to participate in this thread. Simple as that.

Leonardo Da Vinci, Nicola Tesler, Edison.

I'm afraid i'm going to have to stop you all in your tracks and mention one name.

Micheal Jackson, inventor of music
nah, only kidding. i was actually going to say

Leonard Da Quirm

Now that wasn't very nice. Accurate, but not nice.

I personally wouldn't ban Yufster, she's a relief to all the tight arses around here (not all of us, just the ones whom i don't like). But as rules go, she should have been banned long ago. Then again, rules were meant to be bent and maybe even broken, look at Neo.

soo, what were we talking about again? I know it was Nicola Tesler, but what was the subject of this convo?

Hey I'm not ruining your conversation. I'm adding SPICE. Like you know when you cook eggs, and you add some herbs and maybe salt and pepper. Sometimes you might have sauce on it, like mayonnaise. You can put the finished egg on toast or waffles, and even have it with beans in tomato sauce, like those delightful heinz variety beans. I am the side salad that goes with that egg

I would hereby like to compare Nikola Tesla and Eggs. They're both skin coloured. Well, those eggs from Superquinn are anyway, sort of faded light brown. I'm assuming he was the same colour as an egg. Anyway if you cook them, they both... can be served with a light side salad... that is me!

But more specifically, I think they're both absolutely gross, no matter how you present the goddamn dish.

Continued from SXW, he asked who Nikola Tesla was. He was Thomas Edisons "sidekick". Born in Croatia.

Crotch

now, this is my little brother's idea (he's 8, btw)

he said "what if yufster posted: 'nikola testis, nikola testis, nikola testis, nikola testis crotch, nikola testis.

crotch.' "

he has a very sick mind.

Yufster
05-30-2003, 04:59 PM
Now Das, that's a very good point. :confused: :confused:

have you ever tried saying Ecksecksecks?

Das Mole
05-30-2003, 06:38 PM
yes, unfortunately i have.

my little brother also saw a commercial for tampax on mtv once, and then he asked me what's tampax, and i said that i wasn't gonna answer, and now he still doesn't know and asks every now and then and it's really irritating. so i broke out the dictionary, looked up tampons, and it said something to the extent of "cleaning out a body cavity", and it was literally that vague.

so, yeah. *ahem*

so back on topic, now. who's nikola tesla?

Yufster
05-30-2003, 06:45 PM
After careful examination of the entire thread, I have concluded he's a Crotch Malteser.

No. It didnt. Now, if you wanna talk about Crotch Maltesers, make a thread about it. Just keep all that stuff outta this thread. Thank you.

05-31-2003, 02:59 PM
You know, I'm with AG on this. There was really no need for you to take a perfectly harmless topic about an inventor and turn it into spam. If it turned into 'maltesers and crotches' in your head, than let that be you, but I think it was really mean to take something that AG wanted to talk about and not only make it off topic, but turn it into pure spam as well. That's kinda uncalled for. I know before I've said that I like your spontaneity and livelyness, which I do, but there is a time and a place and sometimes you have to know when to stop.

Well, a good source for information to go to is here:
http://www.neuronet.pitt.edu/~bogdan/tesla/

But if you dont want to visit it, I can get some info off it:

He was born on July 9th (Or 10th) in 1856 in Smiljan, Croatia. He died January 7th, 1943 in New York City, New York.

This is what he looked like:

And he also invented the Radio. (Saw it in a magazine about a couple months ago. :))

Joshi
05-31-2003, 03:08 PM
Radio, i'm guessing that's one of the ideas Edison got off him.

Yufster
05-31-2003, 03:09 PM

Was it Leonardo Da Vinci that invented a primitive helicopter, as well as hundreds of other things that evolved into daily appliances? It's amazing the amount of people that got ideas ripped off them.

But my dad once told me: His greatest "inventions" werent even invented yet. They were all in his head. He didnt write them down, but I'm thinking he wrote down that he had great invention ideas. :confused:

I think Da Vinci's main problems were that he hadn't a light enough wood to build his flying machine, but it was plausable at the time. there was actually a wood which would have been perfect, but he could not get his hands on any.
