“I’m not as officer as you drunk I am, vomit.”
We’ve been told that alcohol can be lethal when taken in large enough doses. We know, that sounds counter-intuitive, but bear with us. As everyone who has purchased a breathalyzer from Sharper Image for parties and making sad, sad nights by yourself more justifiable by saying you’re “doing research” can attest, when you get to a BAC of about .2, you’re going to stop remembering things. Knowing that, it makes slightly more sense that Wikipedia would list the side effects of a “>0.50 BAC” as “death.”
But this is America, goddamn it. You know there have to be supermen (and women! Don’t forget those ladies!) who can survive alcohol levels that can kill a rhino. And while the staff of AFFotD has never made the news for being busted with a lethal BAC, many Americans have, and we’re here to salute them. Sort of. Well, we’re going to salute them in the same way you salute someone trying to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel. Because, damn you guys, when we think you drank too much, you know you’re in trouble.
