What a way to go

I have no idea if this little bit of code is accurate, but it is an amusing way to consider how to drink yourself to death. It suggests that I would need to down 26 bottles of delicious Mirror Pond Pale Ale by Deschutes in a three hour period to be sure of finishing the job:

Hm, I can't find this quiz there and it doesn't take my entry. But I ended up taking a bunch of other blog quizzes. I got a B+ in 8th grade science, would taste like spicy beef if someone ate me, am 46% likely to eat my friends if trapped and starving, have had sex with fewer people than most females my age, have 77% steak knowledge, am very experienced in the foods of the world, have a brain 80% wired for creativity, scored 100% on the spelling test, can name 66 countries and 54 colors in five minutes each (although I kept typing spaces I had to delete, and colors they don't count---ecru but not eggshell? Sky blue but not gunmetal blue?), and certainly have way too much time to waste taking quizzes. :P

"gunmetal blue," that's what I'll call ya.

I might be able to help you with a couple others of those.

Really, Joe? Are you that good at naming colors? ;P

Hey, I got the alcohol killer quiz to work now!

Wow, Long Island Iced Teas are deadly. With the others, I'd never come close to having enough to kill me, but with the Long Island Iced Teas, it seems like it could happen accidentally. Any other drink I could drink more than double the amount I could of Long Islands and it still wouldn't kill me.

I'm also surprised Lemon Drops will kill you with fewer drinks than Mojitos and Tequila Sunrises. Even fewer than Margaritas and Mai Tais!
I often used to drink Lemon Drops. Oh my gosh! And White Russians are even worse! That's crazy. It seems like White Russians are kind of wussy. Or girly at least.
I like Brandy Alexanders, but those aren't on there.

Is that in an hour or something? I don't know exactly how it's measured, but I think it may be wrong, or just variable. I don't think 6 shots of absinthe would kill someone. I wouldn't go on record with that, because sure, some of those absinthes, especially the eastern european ones, are crazy high proof, but normal absinthe, I don't think so. 6 shots? Sounds like you're drinking lighter fluid.

My blood alcohol was once (about 15 years ago) determined to be .42 (no, I was not driving or operating anything!!!), but that seems impossible. I know it's what was said, but I wasn't really quite there to witness it, so I don't know if I believe it. Seems like I should have been dead if my blood was almost half alcohol.
