Karma Curmudgeon: Two Hearted: moops: He had three beers and three shots in the course of FOUR hours. That's drunk.

3 beers and 3 shots in 4 hours would put me at .036; in the "NOT IMPAIRED" range.

Geeznotthisshiatagain.jpg

/not legally drunk =! not impaired. Not impaired is less than .02. TMYK


.02 is 1 beer. The general threshold for legal impairment is .06. Somehow I have my doubts that a guy like Dunn would be having trouble driving with a sub .04 BAC. Of course I also have my doubts that he only had 3 beers and 3 shots, but I'm not rushing to pass judgement.

/aren't you late for your MADD meeting?

He deserved his fate and he's a horrible person for bringing another person to his grave because he's above the law.


Debateable, 6 drinks over the course of four hours doesn't mean drunk. Assuming he weighs 180lbs and his drinks were what is commonly considered "normal" (1 drink equals 1 ounce of 100-proof liquor, one five ounce glass of table wine or one 12-ounce bottle of regular beer). His BAC would have probably been around .065, which in the state of Washington is under the legal limit.

Not saying he wasn't impaired but your blanket assertion is wrong.

rattchett: Deucednuisance: Twigz221: Another thread where people call Ryan Dunn a drunk driver, even though there's no solid evidence that he was drunk.

Fine. He was just a lousy driver who over-estimated his capabilities to handle high speed and killed two people.

Better?

Not really.

What proof do you have that he was speeding? How do you know that he wasn't swerving to avoid a deer or that his car suffered a mechanical failure?

It's all speculation isn't it? The question is do you want to condemn him or give him the benefit of the doubt until the investigation is concluded? Do you operate on the basis of innocent until proven guilty or guilty until proven innocent?


The skid marks at the scene indicate that he was speeding. Was he actually going over 100 mph? THAT we don't know but the speeding part we know. We also know that he was drinking that night and while he might not be legally drunk (probably we'll never know that based on how the car looks), he had enough alcohol in his body to be impared and think that speeding on that road at night with no seatbelt was a good idea.

Uh, that's the point. These people go out, legally protest in the most infuriating way possible, and sue the pants off anything that tries to stop them. They're awful scum, but the only way to win is to COMPLETELY ignore them.

You can't sue when your face is so swollen you can't open your mouth.

Yeah, I know. I was hoping for a thread where people would defend him posthumously by pointing out semantically useless non-factoids-

Oh.

Wait.

I don't really understand why it matters if he was drunk or not. It's not like the guy was evil. If he was drunk, then he made a horrible mistake. If he wasn't, then a horrible accident happened. I guess I just don't see why so many people are all 'served him right!' when the guy wasn't doing anything maliciously.
He was almost definitely drunk, I just don't see how that it makes it any less of a tragedy.


But it's horrible that Mel Gibson was fired from the Hangover 2 for being a sexist, racist, drunk driver...
 
2011-06-21 12:52:28 PM  

you have pee hands: Misconduc: I hope he realizes the Bar Owner already said Ryan Dunn had 3 beers and 3 shots before leaving the bar, also he appeared "not visibly drunk"

The bar owner has a vested interest in saying that since it's illegal to serve the 'visibly intoxicated'. That doesn't mean he's lying, necessarily, but I'd take it with a grain of salt.


Yet that's all the information we have, isn't it?

It appears that he was reckless whether he was drunk or not. Being drunk doesn't make this accident any worse, and being sober doesn't make it any better.

The problem is that people jump to the conclusion that he was legally drunk because he was drinking before the accident. Sure, that's a reasonable conclusion, but that alone isn't enough to say that he was definitely drunk.

Similarly, there's definitely not enough evidence to deride people who say that he may not have been drunk.

Again, the drinking is practically irrelevant since he was driving recklessly. Driving drunk is reckless; speeding and losing control of your vehicle is also the result of recklessness.

I alone am best: Diogenes: We gave ourselves free will by eating of the Tree. And we see how cool God was with that.

I do not think that is correct. If we didn't have free will prior to that, then how could we eat from the tree if god didn't want us to. Eating from the tree gave us knowledge of sin not free will.


Do you guys realize that you sound like people arguing over what kind of underpants leprechauns wear?

Tatsuhiko:
But... God made the snake?

/I'm not getting their 12,000 year old logic.


In the modern literalist interpretation, the snake is actually Satan, an earlier attempt of God's where he already put the knowledge of good and evil in there, but then just forbid him to use it. Satan didn't take this well, used it anyway, started a war with god, got punished by being banished, but occasionally still sneaks up to make trouble either on his own or when God needs some trouble made.

Essentially, where the Catholics put their polytheistic impulses into the saints, the protestants put it into the angels. Satan, mythologically speaking, fills the place of Loki or Coyote, depending on how dark you're feeling that day.

//It's worth noting that most of the "Satan" stuff is Milton and/or Alighieri, not the actual bible. The actual bible is actually explicitly polytheistic until like a quarter of the way into the new testament, but don't tell a baptist that.

As if theres been a time in the past 15 years when Ryan wasn't drunk at 2:30 am.

If you drink every single night of your life, you are rarely drunk ... it takes an enormous amount of booze to get a serious drinker drunk.


Actually wrong.

As a person starts drinking - he builds up a tolerance. He goes from a couple of drinks to twelve drinks to get drunk.

Final stage, a switch flips over in the body, and suddenly only a couple will get him drunk again.

At this point, the body has physically adapted to the constant presence of alcohol. This is real alcohol addiction - when the body has convinced itself it's required, like food or air. Expect DTs and worse if you try to stop then. But your tolerance will be gone.

You certainly are NOT fit to operate a motor vehicle after consuming that much alcohol. Ethanol, like any other compound, has a half-life. Four drinks in four hours does not mean you will blow 0.0.

He was driving drunk and going 100+ mph. He took the life of another person because he was too good to find a designated driver. If there's a Hell, he's earned his stay there.

True. So, I think the moral here is: don't be a jackass about it.

You got a study for that, or is that some level defined in the law.

Using the definition, "being in a less than perfect or whole condition" then you are impared whenever you get behind the wheel in the dark, with wet roads, whenyo are tired, etc.

How am I supposed to know? I am not an accident reconstruction expert and I am not privy to the evidence so I am not going to assume he was speeding or drunk. I know the car burned, which is going to effect what is left of it. Also, I understand that the car was constructed of lightweight materials, such as carbon fiber and aluminum. What would be left of those materials after a fire in any event? I don't know. Do you? Can you look at that photo an tell us the speed at the time of the crash?

Maybe he was drunk or driving too fast. I will wait for the investigation to conclude before I condemn him. I sure as hell am not going to spew hatred at him before hand.
 
2011-06-21 01:05:42 PM  
To those complaining about him not wearing a seatbelt; Did you take a look at what was left of the car?

The guy was toast either way. A Porsche is a rear engine vehicle so the instant stop of hitting that tree at high speed would first crush the fuel tank in the front and send the engine/drivetrain forward through the back of his seat crushing him into the dash/steering wheel.

Willfully breaking the law kinda qualifies as "malicious" most people would agree, I think. If it wasn't for drunken driving, it was for exceeding the speed limit by about 210%.

Oh, and he got his friend killed as well while doing it. That's at least Involuntary Manslaughter right there- were he alive.

Nope. Nothing "malicious" here...

He was almost definitely drunk, I just don't see how that it makes it any less of a tragedy.

It can't. It wasn't a "tragedy". It was sad, perhaps. And inevitable.

It was also entirely avoidable.

Ryan Dunn was a human being. No matter how messed up a person is, no one desires to have their funeral protested. Especially the bunch of Wackjobs from Westboro. They are more of a cult then a Christian Church.

Of course that's just my opinion, I could be wrong.
