Let's see, that's an average of 5000/800 = 6.25 drinks per person.  Six drinks in a night?  Meh.

Jager is one of those drinks I just grew out of. Loved it for about a year mixed with dp then just couldn't stand it anymore.

That is what I assumed... then I read the article, and i SERIOUSLY doubt this claim:

"The challenge was set by Student Republic, organisers of weekly student night Jäger Rocks, and saw 930 gallons of Jägermeister consumed, according to The Metro"

No Farking way did each person drink OVER 1 gallon of Jager.  Makes me ill thinking about it.

There was a time when I drank those, and it was in college.  This one bartender liked me and would hook me up all the time.  One time he dropped a low ball full of jag into a pint that was almost full of red bull.  It was a giant jag bomb.

From the other article it looks like it was a planned event. I thought they were saying it was just some random bar flash mobbed by college kids. So I guess.

Jager.  Cough syrup for barflys.  One shot is ok, the second shot I can't feel my knees anymore.  6 of them and I'd be worried about the potential blackmail material on all those cell phones as I make a complete ass of myself.  lightweight i have become, lightweight i have been for a couple decades now.  It has been a long time since college and no way on god's green puking earth am i ever going to try to keep up with the young and stupid folks any more.

Yeah I cant drink it anymore, after waking up on a balcony and not know how I got the hickey on my neck I kinda just had to stop. Now and then when I have done a shot of it makes me think of that night.

They're students. This is why they go to university, to practice and learn. Do professionals in other fields go up to university students learning a subject and shiat all over them? No. Also stop pretending you can drink. You're Americans, everyone knows Americans can't handle their drink. Just look at the Fark outage picture, hardly anything has been drunk and he's passed out and the site is down. That's real amateurism.

"When we allow booze to be sold cheaper than water we have a very serious problem."
Yeah, we do, but it's not with alcohol, it's with people paying £10 for a bottle of luxury water, allowing everyone to claim something is more expensive than water.

The somewhat low alcohol content of jager (35%) is not worth the horrible cough syrup flavor.

Why people always talk about "how farked up jager gets me" I believe is a misinterpretation because of how drunk you have to ALREADY be to decide that drinking the vile stuff is a good idea.

Whenever people talk about how much more farked up they get on this type of booze rather than this type of booze with comparable alcohol levels, they're just thinking about previous memories with that type of booze. Alcohol is alcohol. You don't get any more drunk on one brand than another (again, depending on the % content).

Now how sick you get on each type, that's a different story.

Low compared to what?

Vodka is 40%

// I think the flavoring serves to mask just how much liquor you're actually drinking

// and it's not like romana sambuca, which is 42%, because that stuff is so thick and sweet that you're not going to be downing shots of it.
 
2014-01-29 12:49:17 PM  
I never understood why people drink jager. The liquor in jager is no more or less potent than any other liquor just because it tastes like the inside of a hippie's ass, or at least what I presume the inside of a hippie's ass would taste like.

2 oz per drink times six drinks on average is 12 oz per person.

12 oz times 800 people is 9600 oz.

That makes 75 gallons. They must have misplaced a decimal point or something.

#1 I said somewhat low...the average abv for most true distilled spirits (liquors) is 40-45% but you'll find that most liqeurs run about 20-35%, but at least Puckers taste good.  Utimately Jager (liqeur) has a low abv compared to liquors...but in the genre of liqeurs it is high abv and highly gross.
#2 One cannot oversimplify to state "vodka is 40%" when there are plenty of 100 proof (50%) and higher vodkas out there, but yes, the one I keep is 40%
#3 I often drink corn whiskey in the 55-60% range typically, so comparitively 35% is low since it is approaching half strength of my normal spirit.

The overall point is...it is so gross that it ought to be higher abv to make up for the flavor, plus the whole "jager gets me so farked up" annoys me because umm, no it doesn't. Not anymore than most liquors.

Jager is liquor with training wheels intended for college students. Oh, and did I mention it is gahross!
