Wonder how much professional drinker pays? Sounds like fun.

A cop told me a story about a man he pulled over because his tail lights were out. He tested the guy because the smell of liquor was obvious. Dude talked and acted sober and passed all the filed sobriety tests but blew a .28.


What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

We know so little about alcohol consumption and the body. Interestingly, I watched a documentary called 'The Pour' where alcoholics are given one drink per hour - basically just to keep them stabilized.

If we can think of them as people who have developed a physical tolerance to alcohol (just like any other type of drug) then is it really farfetched to believe that that woman's body could handle that amount of alcohol in her system, considering the aspect of tolerance, and function okay?

It may be all related to your genes.

The researchers say that one of the factors that affect a person’s likelihood of becoming an alcoholic is their early experiences with alcohol. Those who show a higher ‘tolerance’ during these first occurrences tend to drink greater amounts in the future. Here, they were interested in looking at what genes might affect a person’s response to alcohol (their alcohol tolerance).

The researchers had investigated this in two previous studies, one of which had suggested that a genetic region at the end of the long arm of chromosome 10 was associated with alcohol tolerance. This region contains the gene that produces the CYP2E1 protein, which is involved in breaking down alcohol as well as other chemicals. Variations in this gene could therefore potentially affect alcohol tolerance. This current study combined and re-analysed the samples that had been used in the two previous studies.
