    Four beers in one hour will take a 200 lbs guy right up to, but probably not over, the line.

    The differing tolerances is being able to drink more alcohol without your BAC going up, not that one can handle BAC differently.

    The worst part is that neither the father, nor his son, showed absolutely any remorse at all, which is why this guy should have gone to prison for a very, very long time. Instead, he will get to live his life richly, after serving a short term term at an upscale multi-millionaires only rehab center, paid for with the half a million bucks his father is giving them.

    Yes, folks. Money DOES buy justice these days. But, if there is justice in this world, his father will no longer be part of the 1%, since it was one of his company trucks his son was driving when he snuffed out all those lives. The 15 or more lawsuits that will undoubtedly be filed against him will take care of that. Sad to say, though, it won't bring back any of those people his son killed, or repair any of the damage to the 11 who survived but are now crippled for life. In the end, we can only hope that this family learns what it is like to be poor, after becoming poor themselves.

    Article is here.
    Well, it sounds like what you need to do is to get to work and make a lot of money.
    Redneck, hillbilly, fundie, Bible thumper, cracker, split tails, geezer, loon, xenophobe, islamaphobe, and homophobe are not words of tolerance.

    Depends on the beer. One 10% beer is going to pack more punch than one 4.5%.

    It would be cool to have one of those machines just to test it out. I think you can buy them but I don't know if it would be worth it to me. I don't drive at all even if I have drank one beer. I know the legal limit has to be pretty far on the overprotective side. I have heard many people with DWI's claim that they were not drunk but failed the breathilizer. When I was in the military I think I remember the legal limit on base being lower than the North Carolina legal limit. I just never saw the necessity to take any chances. I prefer drinking beer at home. The beer is cheaper and the risk of going to jail is much lower. A breathilizer wouldn't benefit me on the practical side of things but I would like to mess around with it to compare what it feels like to be "legally drunk" versus being "completely wasted". It would just be a fun toy.

    Blood Alcohol Calculator Check Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself

    Confirms my own principle, which is one serving of alcohol per hour and you're fine to go.

    I would argue that any beer over 8% isn't the norm. I'm still kind of surprised that there isn't a bac calculator that takes alcohol content into account.

    Edit: My bad, here we go. http://www.onlineconversion.com/bac.htm

    Whoah, one fin de monde in an hour and I'm spending the night in jail.

    That's not true but it is a really common misconception.

    Actually, you cannot do that. A breathalyzer does not take it's sample from the mouth. The sample is a deep lung sample.
