Another reason for asr to be in your rss [Oct. 16th, 2006|01:02 pm]
A person posts a thread stating that they had a great vacation, culminating in the purchase of 35 bottles of single malt scotch whisky of varying types. The response:

35 bottles * 0.750 L/bottle * 40% abv = 10.5 L of alcohol

10.5 L * (1000 cm^3)/1 L * 0.789 g/cm^3 = 8280 g of alcohol

Average adult blood volume is 5 L and density is 1.06 g/cm^3

5 L * (1000 cm^3)/1 L * 1.06 g/cm^3 = 5300 g of blood

5300 g * 0.08% BAC = 4.24 g of alcohol needed to get drunk

8280 g / 4.24 g = 1950 drunks in those 35 bottles

Alternatively, a typical metabolism rate for alcohol is 10 g/hr
(wackypedia again)

8280 g * 1 hr/10 g = 828 hours

828 hours * 1 day/24 hrs = 34.5 days of continuous drunkenness 

In other words, a typical bottle of scotch is a man-day of drunkenness.

That's why I love reading this group. I learn something new every 750ml.

Once again, I have to remind you how awesome you are. And it made buying your Christmas present a hell of a lot easier. =)

it can't be an accident that 750ml is just enough to get schnockerd for 24 hours.

The harmonic series is based upon whatever root note is played first. For example, if you were playing a major chord (tonic, mediant, and dominant) the tonic would set the entire harmonic series in which the other notes need to tune to. If the tonic was 20 cents sharp, the mediant would have to be 7 cents sharp, and the dominant slightly on the higher side of 20 cents sharp because it needs to be a wide interval (staying away from the tri-tone).

I wonder what bottle of alcohol would be appropriate for a woman-day of drunkenness. ??? :-P

Scotch? Vodka for me.
