    Default Riddle me this?

    How is it I can drink 5 pints of 5% beer and be a drunken knob 'ed falling over and pissing in drawers yet 8 pints of 4% stuff and I'm fine?

    Science isn't about why, it's about why not. You ask: why is so much of our science dangerous? I say: why not marry safe science if you love it so much. In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired. - Cave Johnson

    I'd suggest sticking to the 3.5-4% beer. Wine has the same effect on me so stopped drinking it. 1 bottle of wine = about 9-10 units and I'm gone, 7 pints of Bodds = 11-12 units I'm fine.

    All to do with the speed of alcohol consumption not the quantity I believe.

    LTO-5 - current standard, around 1.5 TB uncompressed per tape, bought over 150 of those last month.

    We need more data. Are you consuming the eight pints in the same time as the five pints? What beers are they?

    Time is important as you need to consider rates of change, in this case both of blood alcohol levels and rate of onset of inebriation.

    The beers in question are important as all beers are not equal in their psychoactive effects, and this is very much an individual thing. Google "congeners" to see what I mean.

    And have a good night
