Speaking of London, England, if you can come up with any excuse to have something occur inside Big Ben, that'd be great. Get to it!

May 1859 - Construction on the tower is finally complete, and all of London celebrates as the huge bell is transported to its new home. The entire royal family is on hand to view this historic event. But the drunken bell hangers fail to secure Big Ben properly, and the 16-ton bell falls to the ground, crushing the royal family and triggering an earthquake that levels half of London.

*enter date of well handled forest fire here*: the firemen were too drunk to put out the forest fire, but that didn't stop them from trying. They tried to smother the fire with their own bodies, (without a firesuit!) but this only fueled the flame. The whole forest is burnt down, and massive amounts of smoke are realeased into the air, increasing global warming by a massive amount.

recent Mt. St. Helens rumbles: Drunken scientists are exploring Mt. St. Helens. Suddenly, one falls in, somehow triggering the worst volcanic explosion in history!

Ancient Egypt, 5000 BC or whenever.
King Tut ordered his subjects to build an enourmous pyramid known as 'The Great Pyramid' and went off in his palace. Years later, when the pyramid is 3/5 complete, he wobbles out of the palace, swaying. He reaches the pyramid with a jug of that old timey beer in his hand, and slowly climbed the great structure. Tut finally reaches the top, then his jug slips, smashing over a worker's head, who falls down and knocks nearly one hundred people off the side. An enourmous brick they were holding suddenly slipped off of it's wheel free cart thing and slid down the incomplete pyramid, then smashed into a brick, turning it to dust. Tut, meanwhile is doing 'The Egyptian' dance that we all love, and falls into a hole in the pyramid. It collapses, many people die, and the pyramid never got finished because of Tut being in a drunken stupor.


Battle of Solway Moss, 24 November 1541
Instead of the Scots being defeated by the british, the british's tea was sabatoged to contain large amounts of some alcohal stuff. (:?) They go into the battle with drunken "I say!"s and garbled "Tally ho!"s and LOTS of puke. The scots win, and change history forever!


1536, May 19th
Anne Boleyn was to be executed that day, but never was, instead Henry VIII got drunk at the execution and decided to get close up to her when she was beheaded. He leaned about 4 inches away from her face and grinned drunkenly, then suddenly he pitched forward and somehow pushed her head out of the gullotine's head holding hole thing, and his fell in her place (just, reversed, so head head would fall where her body was)! This shook the gullotine's blade loose, and it fell downward, and promptly ended Henry VIII's life. Many a person ran forward with a hankerchief to soak up the royal blood, and on that day, Anne Boleyn was to be known as the queen! Therefore history changed, a LOT!

That's all I have for now, I will post more another time! :wink:

recent, not too long ago: the people that met up with North Korea got drunk beforehand. So drunk, in fact, when they got there, they slurred "givus all ya gots *hic*!". And so, North Korea And the U.S. get into a massive nuclear war that kills millions.

1904: a drunk John Ambrose Fleming decides that two states really aren't enough and invents the first triode vacuum tubes, allowing for three possible states: yes, no, and maybe. The resultant computers give unreliable, if somewhat whimsical, results and they never catch on.

So instead of Binary, Trinary!
0's, 1's and 2's! And to turn on some Powerswitches it would be something like
{0 2 1}
(2 being neither one way or they other!)

A long time ago... before Playstation came out:
A drunken Nintendo head decides to keep the offer with Sony for the disk idea (Cartrage AND disc!)
Thus the Playstation never existed, Microsoft never made an Xbox (Playstation was a main reason why they did the Xbox) Graphics get delayed somewhat (Not much compatition), Although on the plus side less violent games are made (Violence levels at least get delayed), and less shootings...) BUT! The military doesn't get training video games...
Maybe it's more of a toss up...

Actually, quantum computers are currently being developed which can store data in three forms rather than two: Off, On, and (weirdly) both at once. You can think of it as being halfway between them if that makes it easier. :wink:

This thread is for posting about historical events that turned out OK but would have been changed by drunkenness. Let's try to stay focused, OK?

(Date when Star Wars 3 came out)- George Lucas, drunken, accidently drops the only copy of Star Wars 3 into a fireplace. He was so depressed he didn't finish the series, causing everybody to freak out!

September 4, 2009- In the near future, aliens visit Earth and land near a drunk farmer. They come out and say "We Come in Peace." The farmer replies by saying "What are you supposed to be? Freaks? Ha ha ha! Stupid freaks!" The aliens are so disgusted they destroy the Earth.

which would increase the amount of people on it(believing the claim it was unsinkable and either three things can happen:
1.it doesnt sink for a while so alot of people believe the claim and the ship gets more passengers it can holdeth.(duh duh duh!)
2.it never sinks but became unsailable and scientest can confirm that it is, in fact, sinkable.(AND NO OLD LADY AND THE GEM!
3. it sinks next journey

I'll twist it a bit from that.

April 1912- The navigator of the Titanic gets drunk and wavers off-course from the iceberg, but hits an even bigger clump of icebergs, killing thousands and thousands more.

oh noes.

Technically, there would be more than one copy the day a movie came out!
... And Now I can't think of anything!

1492: The crew of the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria, are becoming so weary from their arduous journey that Columbus decides to throw a small party to cheer them up. Unfortunately, the resultant befuddlement of the crew throws them seriously off-course. They head due south for days before the realize their mistake and turn back to the west, neatly slipping between South America and Antarctica without ever seeing either of them. This has a good news, bad news result. They were able to successfully locate that passage to India that they were seeking, but they jotted down the course and all subsequent sojourners followed it. It was another three centuries before a somewhat more enlightened group of Europeans discovered the new world, founding an entirely different sort of culture there.

I guess this isn't so "top secret" anymore. :wink:

November 1864: General Sherman and his troops have a massive drinking party in Atlanta before leaving on their historic March to the Sea. The sloshed army veers off-course and misses Savannah by a wide margin, instead running into a decidedly less-drunk Confederate battalion. Sherman's forces are unable to shoot straight and get annihilated. The demoralized North elects George McClellan (instead of Abe Lincoln) as president, who negotiates a peace treaty with the South. The Union and the Confederacy officially become two separate countries.
