  •  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
