drinking threads consolidation...from the 'The "can someone define a shot" thread'
its just a bunch of quotes for the thread on drinking. theres good info here.
"If your bar is at all competent they're using legal 1oz shot glasses, which means they're 1oz filled to the very top. Such glasses look like this:
The standardized shape allows bartenders to know exactly what measurements are in the glass so we don't have to freepour; 1/2 ounce is the same in all bars everywhere (speed spouts help too, but they're not as reliable). In BC, you aren't legally allowed to serve less than 1 oz of alcohol, so if someone short pours you ask for your ounce. That said, I don't know what the law is elsewhere"
"DON VITO can take 25 SHOTS in ONE HOUR"-asac
"25 shots in an hour will probably result in a hospital trip. but lots of times ars dilute alcohol"-SNOWDIVER
"I've seen a kid do 25 shots of vodka...needless to say alcohol poisoning was the end result. Probably one of the worst cases I've seen too."-MI(scra)tch
"You would not make it through 25 in an hour. Just trust me on this. If you did, you'd die. However, you'd pass out first, so it's ok. That's called instant alcohol poisoning right there.

"i've done 6 shots of bacardi in 2 minutes. It was a kind of drunkenness i'd never felt before. But doing it fast kind of sucks becasue it takes a while for it to kick in and than all of the sudden your drunk when a mintue beofrey ou were compeltly sober." -T_Rob
"i was sersouly fine one second than the next i grabbed my friend to keep myself from falling over. i didn't work though."-t_rob
"Andre the Giant could drink 100 beers and a bottle of jack daniels in one night along with a bottle of wine to top off the night no lie I read his biography"-SteezeNINE
"i was a bar tender for about 2 years and then ran a bar for a year.
in australia the rules are a little fuzzy when it comes to shots
one shot is meant to be a standerd drink which contains 10mg of alcahol however when drinking spirits such as jager or vermoth where the alcahol content is alot stronger then say shnapps bar tenders usually pour the same amount which is 30 mils into a shot glass, you will also notice that at a bar when ordering say a rum and coke the bar tender for legal reasons should not free pour but put 1 shot in a glass then fill with coke.
and as for the drinking 25 shots in a night well i couldnt do it and as a bar tender i would have around 5 or six shots at work over a night then start drinking in the morning with the rest of the staff and have andother say 10 so around 15 shots (this also includes things like rum and coke) and i would be tanked. i would do this 4 or 5 times a week so i am a pretty regular drinker.
i have also seen people at bars drink around 30 shots and be able to walk out of the bar, and once i have seen a guy do 40shots in a night plus beer however he wasnt walking by the end of it.
so the morale of the story is year you can do it but you need to have alot of body fat, a strong liver (drink alot and dont smoke) and be drinking fairly regularly "-AussieSKIER
Ok so no one bump thats other thread...........
