I honestly doubt I could drink 150 glasses of water in 3 days.

I was married in Mexico and my wedding party consisted of some of the largest drunks on the planet, culled from 6 continents. Not a single one of us came close to drinking that many margaritas in a week, and by god we tried. Based on what I can tell from this "article" she had 12 one day and then allegedly sipped another 138 over the next 48 hours, I think? Day one seems to be the only day she actually attempted to quantify and then only with a casual end of day reference. Amateur.
 
2018-10-11 08:59:04 PM  
She drank 12 on the first day and ended up having between 60-70 over 3 days, she says.  So, not even half that.  But that doesn't make as good a headline, now, does it?

My coworker tricked me into finishing the last half of her second margarita after I'd already drunk my two, and I was an absolute wreck.  To be fair, the margarita glasses were as big as my head, but the idea of drinking double-digits worth of margaritas in a *week* makes me feel ill.

I could drink 150 margaritas in three days. Mix them right. Make some variety. Measure them out to a consistent ABV.  Drink lots of water. My liver would hate me and it would push me into raging diabetes, but I could do it.

Not bragging, but if you science it, it's doable. It helps if you're a raging alcoholic.

My understanding is that the rule of thumb is it takes a whole hour to metabolize one standard drink, and a margarita probably contains more than a standard drink. So two drinks per hour seems like enough that you're guaranteed to pass out and/or die eventually.

You're also assuming that no time is required to sleep or pee, but I'm not really knowledgeable about Fark-style heavy drinking.

Margaritas come in all shapes and sizes. If a person were to seriously try this, the drinks would be more shot-like than a massive 7-11 Slurpee.

I like a good margarita once in a while. A nice Plata or Reposado and some fresh juice ....
That said, I in my advanced age learned from an  Ancient Don who was visiting one day-
" Treat Tequila as you would a fine Single Malt Scotch- nice and neat, sip it slow and savour it " . Words that have stuck with me.
I prefer a good Anejo, but would never think of using it in a margy .
Oh, and I could not imagine even just doing a tasting of that many in a weekend.

Well, it probably is possible to consume that much water, and then you'd die. Dihydrogen monoxide poisoning is serious business.

Best case, you can probably process a quart of fluid an hour. That's 32 oz, so 4 glasses per hour. In theory you could drink 50 glasses a day then, but people have died from about 16 in a short period of time and been hospitalized after drinking about 30 a day.

"Jennifer Strange died after drinking what is believed to be 2 gallons (7.5 liters) of water in an attempt to win a Nintendo Wii. The KDND radio station's morning show, the Morning Rave, held an on-air contest entitled "Hold Your Wee for a Wii," in which contestants were asked to drink as much water as they could without urinating."

"British actor Anthony Andrews survived a case of water intoxication. He was performing as Henry Higgins in a revival of the musical My Fair Lady at the time, and consumed up to eight litres of water a day. He was unconscious and in intensive care for three days"

This - if you drink Tequila straight, with respect, the tequila speaks to you, and it tells you how much you can drink.
Margaritas lie.

Based on my larger drinking scale. You're a lightweight. Margaritas are usually made with tequila or other 40 proof alcohols.

I can drink a handle of 100 proof in two days given time and food. But I drink a lot. In fact, I drink more than most should.

So lightweight is not an insult. In my opinion, you get drunk off mixed because you're slamming them down.

Don't do that. Getting drunk just to get drunk is stupid. I do it because I am trying to fill the gap of legal weed but still don't want to lose a job because if federal bullshiat.

/this is personal
//would rather smoke weed but no gets fired over alcohol unless you're drunk on the job

I drink two margaritas in the morning
I drink two margaritas at night
I drink two margaritas in the afternoon
It makes me feel alright
I drink two margaritas in time of peace
And two in time of war
I drink two margaritas before I drink two margaritas
And then I drink two more

I see the first part of the headline, "I Drank 150 Margaritas" has been thoroughly debunked.

Now, if we get to the second part, "It wasn't a great decision", actually, if you read TFA, she seems to feel it turned out to be a fantastic decision. "Small things, indeed. I had consumed some 60-70 margaritas over the course of the past few days, precious drinks that made my liver weep and my booty shake with total abandon. Was tequila the secret to eternal life?"

Terribly bad form, subby.

It requires a catheter.  The peeing, not the drinking.

I just went to a website that calculates BAC (Blood Alcohol Content) and even consuming 20 cocktails (of an average of 1.5 oz's alcohol, in a 24 hr period, for a female weighing 150 lbs, would lead you to have a BAC of .19.    You generally pass out at .15 and consuming 150 margaritas over three days would give you a fatal BAC of over .50.

The normal person can metabolize about an ounce of alcohol an hour.  Assuming that these drinks only had one ounce, and that she was not a light weight, 50 drinks in one 24 hour period would be like shotgunning 26 shots at once.  No BAC calculator goes that high, but it looks like this would put a 120 pound female in the .9 to 1% BAC range.  Common symptoms of this BAC are death

That napkin math is missing so many variables you might as well use it as a coaster.

We need age, body weight, the size of the drinks actually served...

If I had a few hundred spare dollars, I would buy a few 100 of those 4.5oz mini cans they make and have an Andre the Giant drinking party.  I bet twenty people could kill a 1000 of those cans in one night.

50 tiny drinks in each 960 minute day (-480 minutes for sleeping)
That's one drink every 20 minutes.

I haven't done much drinking of tequila, but something I learned with other liquor is that adding a little pure room temperature water actually brings out the flavor substantially. I remember this being the case specifically with Metaxa.

"Little did I know that I had already made a crucial error. Rather than taking a sip of each, I decided it would be best for me to drink the entirety of each one."

So she classes a sip as drinking a whole margherita.

I bet the bartender lovedher, imagine painstakingly making all these fancy drinks for the twat for her to just sip at it then order a different one.

You don't painstakingly make anything for someone almost a dozen drinks in the bag, lol. That's when you start watering the drinks down (and give them the food menu) to avoid 'troubles'.

The amount of sugar this lady consumed over 3 days probably did the most damage.. that must have been a fun hangover.
