Alcohol

I like a drink or two every now and then. I'm a big fan of Belgian ales and dark stouts. But I know when enough is enough, and I would never be stupid enough to drink and drive. Unfortunately, that's not the only activity that one can do while drinking that can get one into trouble.

I've had three very intoxicated patients just in the past 3 hours all get injured by different mechanisms.
- One guy with a blood alcohol level of 0.47 walked into a bus. He WALKED INTO A BUS. He was fine.
- Another guy with an alcohol level of 0.39 was hit by a car. Also fine.
- A third guy with an alcohol level of 0.27 fell down the stairs. Again, no injuries except a broken shoulder blade. The kicker here is that he weighs (according to him) about 600 pounds, or roughly 272 kg. So doing the math and considering his size, he had to have approximately 30 drinks in an hour to get his blood alcohol level that high.

What the hell is wrong with people?
