Another annoying weight loss thing [Apr. 19th, 2016|11:04 am]
Xiphias Gladius
If I drink a cup of whiskey upon waking, I'll still be somewhat feeling the effects two and a half, three hours later.

Now, a cup of whiskey is eight ounces, and a shot is about an ounce and a half, so that's a bit over five drinks, and my assumption is that an average person metabolizes about one drink per half hour, or maybe just a little longer, so I'd expect an average person to metabolize a bit over five drinks in about two and a half, three hours, especially if they just woke up, which is pretty much what it is taking me. But, see, I'm used to metabolizing drinks a lot faster than that. And now I can only drink like an average person, rather than drinking like Marion Ravenwood in RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, which is how I used to drink.

Dude. I've got a reasonably bulletproof liver, and if I drink 8 oz of whiskey on an empty stomach I'll be barfing up internal organs within the hour.

I hadn't finished it the night before, I had no intention of wasting it, because it was Booker's (if it had been cheap whiskey, I would have dumped it), and pouring it back into the bottle after I'd started drinking it seemed gross.

You and I live on the same planet and yet in such different worlds.

In some ways, at least. Keeps life interesting.

It would take me a good two and a half, three hours to even DRINK eight ounces of whiskey. Followed by AT LEAST another equivalent time period to stop feeling the effects. And I am not a small person, nor do I habitually abstain (though it's true I normally have more like one drink a day).

On the bright side, you'll be saving a lot of money on liquor?
