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
(Wackypedia)

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.

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

Scotch? Vodka for me.
