A) When you recover from your coma
B) Never, your poor decision-making skills make you an unsuitable driver
C) Not until you feel 100% sober (plus 6 hours)
D) All of the above

I believe the ratio is 1 hour per shot or drink to be below the limit. So if you have 4 drinks it is 4 hours.

500 ml? You should be dead.

Anyway attention seeker, 1 oz 1 hour says "the law". I hope you drank that at home or passed out for a good 8-10 hours and felt like ass somewhere safe when you woke.

"Today my fish died and it is all your fault"

Sorry about your fish, jessica. My 6 year-old had to suffer that same trauma a few months back. Hope your fish wasn't out drinking with the OP.

Its a shot, beer or glass of wine an hour. After 3, you are pretty much done. I would not drive after that. If I have "a" beer I will not drive. Best not to chance it. I have seen LOTS of people get hammered with DUI's.....its VERY EXPENSIVE!!! If you're going to drink at a party or with friends....make plans ahead of time so you can get home.

Heh... cute, but someone who really did that would be puking and/or having extreme light sensitivity for days on end. Nice try, though. :)

That's just not true though. I drank one of these Saturday night (not straight, obviously)



(70cl Smirnoff)

& a couple of jagerbombs and I was alright Sunday morning. Bit of a headache but it had gone by 2pm.

Why? I know people who drink more.

I'm 19, I'm a student. What else are we supposed to do?! :p
I'm not saying I didn't drink before I hit 21, but really? That is way too much booze and trust me, it is odd that I think that way. ;)
