I’d like to perform an experiment, and I’m looking for a couple of volunteers.
First, I need somebody with a good quality, professional “breathalyzer.”
Second, I need an approximately 200-pound man, willing and able to consume eight drinks in a single hour. (Sorry Sandeep, you don’t meet the weight requirement.)
If we can get both of these to this Tuesday’s Drinking Liberally, I’d like to see exactly how many drinks it takes to achieve a 0.17 percent blood-alcohol level, and a general idea of the associated level of impairment. In fact, in the interest of accuracy, I am graciously extending an invitation to Mike!™ McGavick to join us as our test subject.
Send me an email if you can volunteer either or both. Drinks are on me, as is the ride home.
