Drinking is a sport where the guy with the highest score loses.
Opposite of a fun fact: Chronic heavy drinking will skew the above stats so that a seasoned drinker can be over 0.50 and still not die or go into a coma. At 0.34 I was still able to fill out my admission paperwork and answer all the questions asked by the person admitting me.
I'm guessing this was not a face to face interview. Curious, how did you know you were 0.34?
Nevermind, I guess we're not talking college admission here...
.34 is a lot, imo!
I find it surprising that someone would do something so stupid at .1 - huge gap between the aforementioned numbers
