The only answer to that question is always, "you didn't have enough of it in your system at any one time to suppress your brain stem function and cause you to stop breathing."

Which is what alcohol poisoning is - confusion; slow, irregular breathing; possible seizures; cyanosis (blue tinge of the fingers and mouth); hypothermia; and vomiting. Brain stem shutting down.

I don't know how big a bottle we're talking, but if it was a fifth then you're just an idiot.


I'm not acquainted with US terms, but the bottle I'm referring to is 26 ounces, or 750ml.

And yes, I am an idiot. A large, slightly alcoholic idiot.

To note though, I'm either large enough or have enough of a tolerance built up that I didn't suffer any kind of blackout, vomiting, etc that normally comes with excessive alcohol consumption.

I learned the term in Calgary, but apparently it really is from the US. It's a fifth of a gallon, or ~750ml.

And yes, you are an idiot. In fact, you may be stupider now than you were yesterday (here's another study, also indicating you may be stupider now). Binge drinking is also associated with increased risk of a stroke in people as young as 16. I don't care if you black out or not, or how big your alcohol penis is. I'm not impressed by how much alcohol you can drink. But that's just me! As Levar Burton used to say, you don't have to take my word for it! (though, really, you're probably a little dumber now)

Such is life. At least we're agreed that I'm an idiot.

Edit: heh, I hope the idea that I'm an idiot doesn't bleed over to elsewhere.

Funny you should mention bleeding! Binge drinking irritates the lining of the stomach and can cause bleeding. It also make platelets stick together more easily, which can cause clots. Clots that float around and get stuck in tiny blood vessels and deprive parts of your body of blood (ischemia). This is in contrast to moderate (more intelligent) drinking, which actually makes platelets less sticky. Fun facts!

If it seems like I'm beating this issue into the ground it's because binge drinking is really, really, really stupid.

well, then, don't beat around the bush, dogen - level with him!

(sorry, couldn't resist).


on the other hand, you have about doubled my knowledge of heart disease, as i now know what ischemia is.
