Pitabred: neversubmit: Not a bad way to go.

Not a painful way to go, no. It is a pretty bad way to go, though.

If you're going to get that hammered, use the buddy system.

lemurs: miss diminutive: If you're going to get that hammered, use the buddy system.

That doesn't always work either.


So they dropped her off but didn't make sure she made it inside? That's unfortunate, I'm often DD for when friends go out (I'm a lightweight and can't keep up with them anyway) and we always make sure someone makes it in the door before we go to the next drop off. Inserting a key in the dark basically becomes brain surgery after a rough night.

ElLoco: Pro tip hint: Pick the buddy that doesn't have some combination of "brutal" and "anal" in his search history.


Chances are he furiously rubbed one out before the night started. That combined with the whiskey-dick means their buddy is relatively safe.

Note to hip youngsters: Sure, you're invulnerable, but you shouldn't wear shorts when there's snow on the ground, and consider putting on more than a hoodie.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: I thought alcohol was supposed to keep you warm? Or am I thinking of gasoline...


Actually, drinking alcohol to stay warm when it's cold outside has the opposite effect: http://firstaid.about.com/od/heatcoldexposur1/f/07_alcohol_warm.htm

Aaand this is why when I ran across a drunk dude asleep on the sidewalk in Denver at 3am (I keep weird hours, was just walking my dog) I shook him awake with my foot and walked him the 2 blocks home... when he could finally remember where that was. Boy was his GF pissed when he finally showed up at the door.

Friends/family said I was crazy for doing it (being a 30 yr old female) but I had my dog with me and I couldn't have lived with myself if I'd seen a story like this on the news the next day.

o_blah: This happened not too far from my house. The bar he was drinking at is one of my favorites.

My wife bartends (not at Brew's) and her first thought was of the bartender that may have over-served this guy. They are pretty hard on bartenders for that kind of thing around here. It can be difficult to tell when some people are too intoxicated, or how a couple of drinks will really affect their judgment.


My first thought was that if he was drinking at the restaurant, the bartender/server is farked. I believe the claim that it can be hard to tell if someone is too intoxicated to drive, but this kid was so intoxicated he fell asleep outside and froze to death. That's pretty farking drunk. The bartender should have noticed.

Bedstead Polisher: gopher321: Bedstead Polisher: I once woke up in the middle of the night to open my window and let some air in. As I lifted the blinds to open the window, I noticed that my neighbour was passed out on the front lawn/driveway. I watched her for a second to see if she was breathing, then I went back to sleep. She was gone by morning. She survived.

My hero!

I hate that stupid white trash biatch. She throws loud parties and is a mean drunk, so she's always screaming at people. Other neighbours have called the cops on her.
I would have felt guilty as hell if she wasn't okay though.


There can be a fine line between passed out drunk and dead. She could have been breathing when you looked and dead five minutes later. See Pitabred's above post about someone being left on the lawn by his friends and dying of alcohol poisoning. So yeah... good thing she was okay after all...

Fun tip if it happens again: go outside and shake the passed out moron. If she's unresponsive to noise and vigorous shaking, call 911. Alternatively, put your knuckles on her sternum, press down hard, and move your knuckles around*. It hurts but doesn't do any lasting damage. If there's still no response, say "fark you, biatch" and walk away call 911.

* an EMT friend told me that's one way they determine if a passed out drunk really needs a fast ride to the hospital

PreMortem: Shoulda been drinking schnapps (sp). It keeps you warm.


Mythbusters disproved this on the very first episode of the series I believe.  They drank, then measured their body heat using infrared.

The results:
Alcohol does not make you warmer.  You just don't care if it's cold or not when drunk.

Nothing wrong with sleeping outside when you're drunk.

/as long as you live in Southern California and it therefore never gets cold enough for you to freeze

I was expecting a story about a guy getting sodomized with fish hooks on a stick and beheaded so hypothermia isn't really all that terrible.
