Like every insane person, I like to think that everyone is crazy except me. That is something I keep close to the chest, however, because as a short, bald, fat and poor person, it's hard enough to get laid as it is, so I don’t want to lower my chances further. I used to scoff at the idea of “peacocking”, “negging” and all other pick up techniques, mostly because of the Fedora-wearing douchebags who preach that female empathic sensibilities are exploitable, but they do have a point. It is not so much that the hat, the medallion, the open-chest shirt, the multiple Livestrong bracelets, the annoyingly sculpted facial hair, the (hopefully) cancerous fake tan, the tribal tattoos, the frosted tips, or the Ed Hardy shirts works, but these symbolize unparalleled confidence because nobody in their right mind would think this is normal wear and women just happen to respond quite positively to confidence, no matter how dumb it makes you look to everyone else.
Obviously, men would go to great lengths to attract women, which is why I found it puzzling that Nikola Tesla rejected his female admirers when they were practically throwing themselves at him. Granted, these were turn of the century babes so they can’t possibly be that hot, considering Fay Wray is the benchmark of hotness back in his time, but Tesla seemed to prefer the company of coils, magnets, motors and other electrical gadgets instead. It didn’t end well for him, dying penniless and alone, but thankfully we are reaping the benefits of his innovation and misery. His legacy inspires many modern innovations including advanced telecommunications techniques, electronic motors, and Fractal Design’s own 80 Plus Gold power supply line.
The Fractal Design Tesla R2 is a non-modular power supply that comes in 500W, 650W, 800W and 1000W varieties. Each Fractal Design Tesla R2 PSU carries an 80 Plus Gold rating and has a single +12V rail. To ensure convenient installation and cable routing inside any chassis, Fractal Design has equipped the Tesla R2 with a 700mm long EPS12V connector. A temperature-controlled 135mm ball-bearing fan actively cools the Taiwanese capacitors and the rest of the internal components, operating silently at a lower speed to minimize noise levels. The Tesla R2 is also fully compatible with Intel’s latest Haswell processors, reducing the power consumption of the CPU to only 0.05A during the new C7 deep sleep state. Each Fractal Design Tesla R2 power supply has a MTBF of 100,000 hours at full load and comes with a 3-year warranty.
