OneDeltaTenTango: IronTom: Pocket Ninja: A standard wine pour is 5 ounces, period. 1 ounce equals 30 ml. Therefore, a standard pour of red wine is 150 milliliters, not 125, and their entire unit measurement is bullshiat. I declare this test stupid.They show an entire bottle of wine is 10 units, and that is 750 ml, making one unit 75 ml, now what were we talking about?Oh, OK, a 125 ml glass of wine (assuming it is the same thing as in the bottle, since that dichotomy between red and white is rather mysterious, especially if they have the same alcohol content,...) is 125/75 = 1.67 units, guess they rounded down, they may have been drunk.So why aren't we drinking white wine more? Besides not particularly caring for it, except for an occasionally smoky Chardonnay.Your 5 ounce glass, according to their scale, would be 148 ml, or 148/75 ~ 2 unitsI'd rather drink with you, Pocket Ninja, than the holier than though prigs that wrote the article.Its called the Daily Fail for a reason.
Jument: brainiac-dumdum: So as a woman, I use up my daily alcohol unit allotment with a single pint of beer? Fark that.Well come on, how are you supposed to make a proper sammich if you're drunk?
sifr: picturescrazy: Korzine: How often do I drink alcohol? Never. Alright next question: How many units of alcohol do you drink on a typical day, 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-9, 10+. Did the test just call me a liar?It's a quiz to determine how much risk you have for alcohol dependence. Why should the quiz have anything else for you after you said you never drink?Because question 2 is the only one without the option of "never" or "none".
brainiac-dumdum: Jument: brainiac-dumdum: So as a woman, I use up my daily alcohol unit allotment with a single pint of beer? Fark that.Well come on, how are you supposed to make a proper sammich if you're drunk?I make the best sandwiches when I'm drunk. In fact, I love cooking while drunk. Many a morning have I stumbled out into my kitchen only to discover the place trashed as a result of 3am omelets that I can barely remember.
Stone Meadow: "Would you say you've struggled with alcohol?"

Stone Meadow: "Would you say you've struggled with alcohol?"No.
Phil the SWO: So, the Brits have a thing called "alcopop." Is that their term for anything like a wine cooler, or Smirnoff Ice? Kind of fitting.
PunkTiger: I don't drink alcohol in the first place. Whether or not that's a problem depends on your point of view.
Bungles: It's more "everything's fine if you're a nice drunk" test.
Korzine: How often do I drink alcohol? Never.
belhade: I usually drink 1-2 beers a night almost every night. Sometimes 3-4 a night on the weekends, or if I'm feeling particularly saucy, I'll also make a pint-size bloody mary (3-4 shots vodka) or take a few swigs of my Jack from the freezer. Didn't bother to take the quiz, it's all bunk. Probably equates me with a homeless bum chugging Ripple.
Kumana Wanalaia: I don't have a drinking problem. In fact I'm fairly good at it.I'm getting better all the time. The liquor store up the street is getting rid of a young 80 proof off-brand bourbon by selling a 750ml bottle for $4.99 (+tax of course) so I'm being a helpful neighbor. I think this is my 2nd bottle but it could be my 3rd. Last week the guy said they got 6 cases in but don't offer quantity discounts on that, which is probably good because I already drank myself into a 3-day cardiac arrhythmia.MrEricSir: FTA: "How often do you have a feeling of guilt or remorse after your drinking?"All the time! But you know what helps me forget feelings of guilt or remorse?
born_yesterday: Sure, I drink to much. I don't bother anybody, it usually puts me in a better mood, and I drink close to home so I don't have to drive.
JasonOfOrillia: This is like the definition of a binge. Most people think of a binge as a lost weekend while researchers and health officials feel it is 4 pints of beer or more (or the equivalent). I think there is a disconnect there.
gnosis301: I don't have a drinking problem. I have a drinking solution. To life.
bayoubruce: What a stupid test. I don't believe any of it. I can stop anytime I wish.
MurphyMurphy: Bungles: It's more "everything's fine if you're a nice drunk" test.Are you a puritan; suggesting it's not?If you can drink and have a good time,have no issues of dependencyand it doesn't negatively impact your life either from your viewpoint or the ones who love you....I'm failing to see the negative side here.Unless this is about me making my liver survive until I'm crapping in diapers at the age of 110?....
Super Chronic: I had a high score, but the number is unreliable because I was in a drunken stupor while taking the test.
Gordon Bennett: Do drinks still count as consumed after you vomit them back up again?
