  •  Isn't .110 about 5 drinks or so? (0+ / 0-)

    That is a lot -- especially for a Mormon.

    •  depends on sex, body size, and how quickly (1+ / 0-)

      you consume them..and how you metabolize Etoh (example many people of Asian decent have low amt of enzyme that metabolized Etoh)

      two drinks put  me at o.8 ish...but I'm a woman. I wouldn't drive right after drinking 2...I'd wait a bit myself. I feel buzzed nicely for a while after 2 drinks.

    •  I just calculated it you are roughly right (0+ / 0-)

      they have (rough) calculators
      just by weight of person
      if someone weighed 180 five drinks taken right in a row (very little time elapsed) would give you blood alcohol of around 1.0

      if he weighed more he'd need even more drinks to get to that blood level

      if he drank over an hour or two (more common) he' d need WAY more drinks to get to that blood level

      I was wrong.

      I was remembering that the legal limit used to be O.1 not O.o8 in my state.

      O.1 according to the calculator ...I am quite intoxicated
