Does anyone over the age of 16 actually think drinking contests are somehow fun or in any way a great idea?

YES. We play every night. Jeopardy with beer rules. You get an answer wrong you drink. you get an answer right before your opponent they drink. daily doubles a re six sided dice roll and you exclusive question.

Drinking is fun. Punishing your opponents is even better.


Drinking game != drinking contest

simplicimus: MaudlinMutantMollusk: simplicimus: Bruxellensis: Lando Lincoln: About 17 12-ounce beers in 20 minutes? Uh, yeah...I can see how someone could die from that.

Wouldn't that much of any fluid kill you?

Consider that, on average, a 12 oz beer = 1 shot of 80 proof liquor, that's a lot of alcohol. But 20 minutes isn't long enough for the body to process that much, I doubt it was alcohol poisoning.  I forget how much water in a short period is fatal.

I think he got over carbonated

/suffocated from his own belching

Possible. Water poisoning is caused by loss of electrolytes, doubtful that could happen in 20 minutes.


Yeah it wasn't the ingestion that killed him, that's WAY to short of time.  I'm guessing he had an enlarged heart and the excess pressure from the amount of puking set off a heart attack.

Wouldn't it have been better if he'd just bought a month of TotalFark for all those liters?
