First I had heard of it. Aired just now on NBC Nightly News.

Joins Penn State this year in an ignominious club.

LSU kid proves that doctor correct.

This is the same one.

There's also a kid from Mandeville who committed suicide and the one with the alcohol poisoning now allegedly was "targeted" by others who are being charged.

the key is "a very short period." If you employ any deliberation at all in your drinking you'll pass out way, way before .4%. .495% is insane.

Depressing story. These are accountable adults albeit barely legal immature ones. At least the local authorities are seeking timely justice in the matter. "Just say no," may be a cliché but it still works.

Meanwhile lots of us in misspent youth have partaken in diluted 190 proof beverages. However I've never known anyone of any age in any circumstances that drank it straight. So, no, I don't get it even though I'm a very long way from the current generation.

When I was a resident, I remember being called down to see a chronic alcoholic who was awake and reasonably alert in the ER; the staff there were shocked because his ETOH level was over 0.45. If someone is a heavy drinker for many years, they might actually be able to tolerate such levels; however, in someone who is not a seasoned slcoholic 0.3 is usually enough to knock someone out. This level is almost not able to be reached without a significant concerted effort, since quite often someone will pass out before they can drink that much. This is really deplorable.

I feel for the kid and especially his family.

Craziest story I ever heard was from a T-P story years ago -- a young man on his 18th birthday went into Nick's bar and proceeded to drink 18 shots of 151 rum. He did not live to see the second day of his 18th year.

But for the grace of God go I. Greeniebacker and others from the mid-70s may remember free tequila night in the Rat. Someone famously put a personal ad in the Hullabaloo wanting Jose Cuervo for assault and battery.

Yes and walking through the UC the morning after (before an 8AM class) - bodies were everywhere sleeping it off unable to get back to their dorms.

I remember plenty of wild nights at the Rat and then staggering back to our Dorms...........Heck, we took the Freret Bus down to the Quarter and partied there as well. Going to school at TU back in the everything goes 70's when the drinking age was 18 and bartenders would serve you if you were tall enough to look over the bar was definitely a moment in time.
