.47? Is that even possible?

Oh yeah, I've seen stories here with that level and higher.
The highest ever recorded without the person dying was .9something, they did the test five times iirc. That'd be outrageously unusual though.

.417 BAC and a scalping?

This guy must have suffered the worst hangover in recorded history.

Saw a guy, who was very inebriated, stop traffic on 41 way back. Mental issues from his service in Vietnam, very little support for returning vets back then, even worse than today. Guy committed suicide by driving southbound on the northbound highway lanes, and ran himself right into a truck. Bad part is he lived for at least 22 minutes with his face ripped off, one eyeball hanging out, the other gone, a lot of blood, trying to scream the whole time with a broken jaw. He didn't last until the hospital.

I can still see that guy on the pavement, the trooper and I doing what we could, while the trucker was puking his guts out with a city cop trying to help him. Thank god my wife and kids weren't in the car to see that shiat.

It merely takes practice.
I believe the average non farker would be in a coma around .4, alcohol poisoning between .3 and .4.

.914 and still not dead, that man was well practiced and at 67, he had been working at it a long time without liver failure.
Some people are just meant to drink.

Jesus man... seeing that kind of shiat will mess you up.  Sadly enough there are entire sites devoted to footage like that, gore video clickholes are not for the weak of anything.
I have made the mistake of looking through some series that were just nightmare fuel.  On of my high school friends was right behind a motorcycle that veered into the oncoming lane and kissed the mixing bucket of a cement truck at high speed.  He pulled over and ran up to the guy who was shaking violently and tried to get him on his back.  Flipped him over and saw that the top half of his skull was gone, and the cavity was empty.  Messed him up for a long time to see that, the guy obviously was dead on impact.

If I ever decide to take myself out, I want something immediate and painless. I want to jump off the tallest building I can so I can pretend like I'm flying for 9 seconds. Or pretend like I was a 9/11 jumper. Ideally, I would land on an innocent passerby down below so I have a buddy to go to heaven with. Or hell. Yeah, make that hell. I'd prefer a warm place that has hard liquor and porn. And I'd buy him or her a shot and whisper "do you believe in destiny" as I circle the rim of the shot glass with my tongue.

I don't think any sentence against DUI is too harsh, including attempted manslaughter.
That said, how do you get three counts?
Does this happen in other crimes?

I don't have much to say other than thanks for sharing.  Those are gruesome stories, seeing actual violence is way different than the movies.  My dad has seen some construction incidents that were awful but it was mostly guys falling in the hole doing structural steel.

Probably one count DUI damage to property, plus one count DUI damage to person for each of the injured pedestrians. In the same way that if he had plowed into a crowd and killed a bunch of people he'd be charged with a count of DUI manslaughter for each victim. If he had been pulled over before he'd done any damage he'd just have a simple DUI charge.

There's worse. I don't mean to make light of it, because it's not something I'd wish on anyone, but you get something else out of it: a serious respect for corpsman and medics. You can even get some serious respect for cops. One of my neighbors worked homicide for ten years before he couldn't take it anymore. The rest of us would talk about our jobs but, for obvious reasons, Roger was never talked about his work. My wife's friend Janet, was a boxcar EMT for years before becoming a trainer. Now that woman has some serious nightmare fuel she doesn't talk about. Same for my buddy Tony, he was a Navy rotor, flew medical choppers in Vietnam.

So I try to keep it in perspetive, what I've seen is minimal.

Normal BAC assumptions do not apply to physically addicted alcoholics.

Seriously, when on a bender I quit shaking at .10-.12 depending on where I'm at. I am completely functioning at .20-.25(ie: levels where most people are blackout drunk or doing things they regret). I start to lose memory at .30. When I seized and ended up in the ER my BAC was .04, I had almost died at a level most people would call buzzed because it was TOO LOW.

I've had some trouble with this lately, I was told by a counselor my habit was bad and that she couldn't get me into detox for a few days and to maintain because going cold turkey was going to end badly. I have a history of doing this awesome thing where my body goes into whole body convulsions, I fall down, and then jerk around with no regard for safety(ie: seizures) when I haven't drank in a few days. I have to maintain a certain level until I can get medical help.

The coolest part: I actually look fine, as it's past the first part of withdrawal when it happens. I'll be not shaking or sweating, and then suddenly I hit the farking floor. I usually feel pretty much fine at this point. The last time it happened I was working on an overdue project for a client, and the next thing I knew my body gave out and I was slamming my head against the wall. I spent three days in the hospital.

Of course, if I'm not shaky, people around me assume I'm fine.

fark alcoholism. I don't give a shiat about the culture around alcohol, I'm at the age where "I don't drink" actually makes women more interested. I don't need to go into "why." I do avoid mentioning actively seeking out treatment though.

My stupid pocket breathlyzer says I'm at .18 right now. I've made no typos putting this down. I'm eagerly awaiting treatment. People who joke about alcoholism have no farking idea what they're saying, I don't wish it on anyone. Frankly, we process alcohol differently, we're a weird mutant breed. 

I want you to picture this: You're physically sick. You're mentally ill. One potion will make it all better, but you always drink more of it. You try to regulate it, but you might get violent or sedentary or just annoying if you take too much. Everyone tells you to quit drinking this potion, but without it, at this point, you're literally risking death. You might literally die. If you're really unlucky, people around you continue to partake of this potion, while condemning your intake of it. 

You either continue or seek help. You might seek help with people who partake as much of this potion as you do. You have no resources left, so you accept the help, knowing the person giving you a ride has as much of a potion problem as you do. You sleep on a couch, because you've been kicked out of everywhere else, you live a regimented lifestyle.... the other potion drinkers in your home stay up until dawn arguing. They might wake you up to give you shiat about parts of your lifestyle(say you shoot coyote, or work for telecoms without union approval), you don't feel guilty about it, but you just got screamed at and your adrenaline is up and the little bit of potion is no longer working to sedate you.

You're seeking treatment. You live in a house of people who are beyond unsupportive, you just want to farking sleep. Just for one night. Just one uninterrupted night of slumber. So... fark it, reach for the potion and hope it knocks you out hard enough that their antics don't wake you up tonight. You're supposed to be maintaining, but who farking cares now?

That's... part of the reality of being an alcoholic from an alcoholic family. That is literal reality for some of us. I've been taking dextromethorphan in controlled doses because while it may not let me sleep I do fall into a trance if I focus properly.

jmr61: How do you get 3 counts of DUI in the same incident?


You get charged for all three variations, which is usually the local "wet reckless," under 0.08, then "regular DUI," then "extreme DUI" which is something like 0.20 or higher. The prosecution proceeds under the highest level that the tests return. All of the lower ones are lesser included offenses, in case a plea deal is in the cards.

glad someone posted this. ive had a BAC of .4+ before, ER docs were surprised but they had seen it before. i could be at .25 or so and look "normal" while an average person would be passed out drunk at that point. it is a pretty brutal existence to be sure, never had a seizure strangely enough but i have had some serious withdrawals too many times to count.

i am at just under 3 months sober right now and feeling pretty darn good about it too. seriously good luck on the treatment, a good life is certainly possible without the potion.

farkingismybusiness: My bad about my joke I just posted. I drink a lot too. I know how it is.


I did not intend to shame anyone. I get alcoholic jokes. I laugh at them.

I just sometimes wonder if people who wake up hungover a couple of times and call themselves "alcoholics" realize what they're making light of. We're not all dead-end fark heads. It's not all puking and hang overs.

It's borderline stroke levels of high blood pressure on rebounds. It's shaking so bad you have to pull your face down to the bowl and eat like an animal, knowing your hypoglycemic and have to eat but the fork just doesn't farking work right because your hands are oscillating 1/2" side to side at a rate of 200 times per minute so fark it, just stick your face in the shiat. It's about diarrhea, constant vomiting, watching your entire life rot because you want another beer. It's about seizing when you finally quit and the shakes and sweats are over and you feel free for the first time in months.

It's about three days in a hospital bed trying not to hit on your day nurse because you know she's cute and you're loaded on Ativan(which is like beer goggles x5), but you also know her being nice to you is her goddamn job. And knowing someone else, in great pain because of circumstances they aren't in control of would die for the bed you're loaded on benzos in and are reading a hunting magazine in and examining scopes in great detail, would kill for.

And, we're not all dumbasses. I work my ass off. I spend less on alcohol than fast Mexican food, but I'm... seasoned. I'd probably blow a blackout level for most amateurs making jokes about this right now. I made four corrections in this post.

Glorification of alcoholism is shiat.

I'll drink to that.

inglixthemad: the trucker was puking his guts out with a city cop trying to help him


Was he sticking his fingers down the trucker's throat?

inglixthemad: Markoff_Cheney: inglixthemad: Saw a guy, who was very inebriated, stop traffic on 41 way back. Mental issues from his service in Vietnam, very little support for returning vets back then, even worse than today. Guy committed suicide by driving southbound on the northbound highway lanes, and ran himself right into a truck. Bad part is he lived for at least 22 minutes with his face ripped off, one eyeball hanging out, the other gone, a lot of blood, trying to scream the whole time with a broken jaw. He didn't last until the hospital.

I can still see that guy on the pavement, the trooper and I doing what we could, while the trucker was puking his guts out with a city cop trying to help him. Thank god my wife and kids weren't in the car to see that shiat.

Jesus man... seeing that kind of shiat will mess you up.  Sadly enough there are entire sites devoted to footage like that, gore video clickholes are not for the weak of anything.
I have made the mistake of looking through some series that were just nightmare fuel.  On of my high school friends was right behind a motorcycle that veered into the oncoming lane and kissed the mixing bucket of a cement truck at high speed.  He pulled over and ran up to the guy who was shaking violently and tried to get him on his back.  Flipped him over and saw that the top half of his skull was gone, and the cavity was empty.  Messed him up for a long time to see that, the guy obviously was dead on impact.

People who knew I was there asked me about it, after the story was on the local news. I didn't want to talk about it for quite some time after. Yeah, it's haunting to see something like that in person. I'd seen something like it before: I saw a guy get parboiled by a busted steam line who lived for a week. Not his fault, it broke under pressure. My dad saw a pretty young woman who wouldn't (because it wasn't attractive)  keep her hair tied up, like safety rules said, pulled through a paper machine. She died instantly, the machine pulverized every bone in her body, but it didn't break the skin.

Stuff like that does stick with you.


My daughter is an EMT, private company. Rolled up on a few. Worst was three motorcyclists head-on. She took control of the scene. Police showed up a minute later and freaked, officer was walking in circles saying Fark, Fark... First victim was dead on impact, went head first into oncoming vehicle.  Second was missing part of his skull, combative... Doubt he lived.
Third was badly damaged but likely lived.  The only comfort of the story is that the killed individual was friends with my wife's friend. It helped them knowing that my daughter covered his body. I understand why she drinks sometimes after work.
I, like her, understand your pain, Godspeed.

I know this is Fark (& welcome to it, & all), but there are people actually "Funny-ing" your post. Jesus.

I'm not in pain over it, a bit haunted, but it doesn't keep me up at night. I feel for the EMT's, docs, and cops who have to see this shiat as "regularly" part of their job. It's kind of like my legs: yes they're f*cked up, and I'll never run again, but I can walk. I'm still alive, and don't need to see this shiat as part of my office job. I feel for your daughter. That EMT and ex-rotor I know have had to get some serious therapy.

*raises glass to her*

May her "nightmare fuel" never be more than she can tolerate.

When you see someone parboiled in person it becomes a lot less funny, especially if you know them and there was nothing they could've done to prevent it. I see the "funny" on the posts as people who either think it's a joke or have never heard the dealt with the carnage.
