    That is not what happened.

    I love math. It has always been my strength. In high school I didn't hang out with the cool kids so I had no access to alcohol. I lived in a dry county so finding alcohol from my family or other source was out of the question too. But wait! Vanilla extract is sold over the counter with 35% alcohol. This was awesome. Perhaps I could get drunk off of this let me calculate it.

    2 ounce bottle of vanilla extract x .35 = 0.7 ounces of alcohol

    Now I have to make sure I am not drinking too much alcohol. My health teacher was very vivid when describing the dangers of alcohol poisoning. I didn't want to drink too much so I calculated the amount of alcohol in a 6 pack of beer. Average beer has less than 5% but some do have 5.5%. I'll work with the larger number to maximize my ability to become intoxicated.

    72 ounces of beer x .055 = 3.96 ounces of alcohol

    I need to drink 11 ounces of vanilla extra to obtain the effect of 6 beers. No thank you. I continued to do a similar calculation with Lemon extract which was 90% alcohol. I finally learned to buy two bottles of lemon extract and mix it with Sunny Delight orange juice. Boy was that nasty.

    Anyways, the moral of the story is a vanilla malt milk shake from Sonic doesn't contain a 2 ounce bottle of vanilla extract but even if it did it would not place you over the legal limit.

    Funny, that seems to be what I am reading. Perhaps this needs to be in the "bias in the media" section?

    "Affluenza," the affliction cited by a psychologist to argue that a North Texas teenager from a wealthy family should not be sent to prison for killing four pedestrians while driving drunk, is not a recognized diagnosis and should not be used to justify bad behavior, experts said Thursday.

    And?

    The defense can say what ever they want.
    It doesn't mean the Judge considered it.

    The Judge not using it in her decision says that is not what happened here.
    Or do you not understand these things?

    The previous case brought up where she considered the same type of treatment sentence, also shows it wasn't a consideration.

    Those are all anti-science blogs.

    What I posted is common knowledge based on actual medical science. Different individuals have vastly differ tolerances for alcohol.

    That's why DUI laws make no ****ing sense, they are not based on actual medical science. They are based on greed and a prohibitionist agenda from anti-liberty zealots.

    Insulting me is not going to change the fact that different individuals have very different tolerances for alcohol.

    EDIT: Oh and BTW, in regards to YOU calling me stupid... see here.

    No but from what I hear it's about 3 beers for the average person. Is that close?
