February 7, 2012 Whiskey To Go
jimhelm Tuesday Feb 7 11:22 AM
oof ... I have a headache just from looking at that
infinite monkey Tuesday Feb 7 11:27 AM
I came, I saw, I vomited my face off.
Gravdigr Tuesday Feb 7 12:01 PM
I think I'll pass on the canned liquor, all the same.
Ibby Tuesday Feb 7 12:16 PM
Eight shots? in an hour? blackout? Maybe in an elementary school, yeah.
classicman Tuesday Feb 7 12:36 PM
raises hand. Maybe I'll have memory loss and blackout after puking my guts up.
glatt Tuesday Feb 7 12:53 PM
I'd black out.
Sundae Tuesday Feb 7 12:53 PM
Gravdigr Tuesday Feb 7 01:51 PM
A shot is an ounce-and-a-fifth isn't it?
Sundae Tuesday Feb 7 01:54 PM
Ours are 25ml, yours are 44 (yes, an ounce and a fifth)
DanaC Tuesday Feb 7 02:29 PM
Ahe, I was gonna say. With whiskey I could probably manage two or three doubles in an hour. But that's British doubles.
BigV Tuesday Feb 7 05:42 PM
That is some cheap whisky.

DUI in a can.
Flint Tuesday Feb 7 10:37 PM
You would end up eating eight of these--remember these?--which might actually improve the situation.
wolf Tuesday Feb 7 10:38 PM
You can haz that cheezburger.
Flint Tuesday Feb 7 10:40 PM
I guess the cans would be...portable, but seriously, though, who never heard of a flask? A flask fits in your back pocket.

Ok, I feel so much better. I drink way, way too much beer and it doesn't have the effect on me it should, but -if I could stomach whisky at all- I'd be joining the blackout/barf crew in an hour easy peasy. I do about 4 beers an hour top speed. 2-3 is more like normal. That would be overkill in a can.
SPUCK Wednesday Feb 8 06:46 AM
The can should have a skull and crossbones on it.
DanaC Wednesday Feb 8 06:48 AM
Sticking that much whisky in a can that looks like a single serving is asking for alcoholic poisoning casualties.
ZenGum Wednesday Feb 8 07:01 AM
Absolutely. People with a large body mass and experience with alcohol could handle that, but a slim young bloke could probably kill himself with two, maybe even one. Sure, they could do that with a bottle, but a can is not resealable like a bottle and we are used to finishing a can quickly. A can implies that this is a reasonable amount to drink, in a quick time.
Scriveyn Wednesday Feb 8 10:30 AM
which reminds me ...

BTW, I did the equivalent with 1/2 pint of Jack Daniels. Chased, of course, with some kind of cheap beer.
It all started with a fight with my mom and ended with me trying to figure out how in the H I was going to get down from my tree limb when the ground wouldn't stand still.
(And then I had to ride on the back of a motorcycle. How DID i survive those days??)
I was in high school then. I learned to choose my drinking spot very carefully after that.
(Still can't remember how I got the booze in the first place. Certainly not mom . . .)
Aliantha Wednesday Feb 15 06:02 PM
Obviously I have some serious capacity for alcohol because I'm pretty sure I could drink that much vodka (my spirit of choice) in an hour without much trouble at all. Well, obviously not now, but if I weren't pregnant and trying to lose weight, oh yeah, and that's not really happening now either.

Or the original Gaelic, Uisge Beatha (water of life).
infinite monkey Thursday Feb 16 03:57 PM
We had a dwellar named that for a while.
Sundae Thursday Feb 16 04:19 PM
It was a whopper.
