Metabolism of alcohol

How long does it take for a sixpack of beer to burn down in one's body? Just curious cause I drank a few last night and I'm supposed to go snowmobiling, zero tolerance with that especially cause I'm a minor

How many hours to zero alcohol in blood?

There's no hard and fast rule, but it's generally accepted that it takes half an hour for your body to begin processing it, and then it's about a unit an hour that the body breaks down.

It's generally one serving of alcohol (read beer) per hour. However this varies depending on your general fitness and a whole lot of other factors.

So roughly 6 hours.

Well I weigh 71kg and am relatively athletic, so I'd suppose my metabolism is pretty high and I'll be cool today in case the cops stop us to give a blow

The cops giving you a "blow???" Which country are you in? Plan to avoid that country to get arrested in

I know that sounded completely balls but I honestly have no idea what it's called in english when they test you with an alcometer

I don't get it, why are you worried about a blow-test? Why would the cops suspect that you've been drinking and snowmobiling?


Its also worth noting that 'no tolerance' (at least here) means 'under .02 blood alcohol', not 0.0.

Obviously in Finland the police use the quality of a blowjob to determine how drunk you are. Critically if you agree to give one you must be blitzed.

Forcing drunken minors to perform oral sex upon them as a drunk test just to turn around and jail the ones that actually sucked the shaft? For shame.

Either that or they've found a brilliant new way for everyone to get what they really want.

This is a pretty legit answer.

Says the guy who drinks quite a bit and has "blown" a breathalizer multiple times and never "blown" over the limit.

Best advice is not to have to "blow" to begin with. What is the legit possibility you get stopped by cops on a snowmobile off the road anyway?

or just get roughly 5-6 hours of sleep and you'll be totally fine dude.

Seriously, if you're not going out right now, I'd say you're legit.

They test drivers often here during the holiday seasons (one going on right now in Finland). Limit for cars is 0.5, snowmobiles 0 dead. So it's just called a blow-test, or breathalizer test?

Jesus christ, that's like one slice of poppy seed bread and you're over the legal limit. Do they really just stop people at random to test them?

The Michaelis-Menten constant for adult liver Alcohol Dehydrogenase is 3400uM. That's the most specific answer you an get.

Just go to sleep and you'll wake up fine. Unless you're leaving in like an hour. If you have a while till you go then you should be good.

Surely turning down a free gobjob would be more suspicious?

TS, I feel like the whole English thing is messing with you for no reason, so yes, the whole "blow" issue is fine. I knew what you meant.

If you're a gross person you can use "blow" to mean giving oral sex, but it was really obvious what you meant from context.

I tend to make things sexual and even I wasn't going to make that joke.

Dude, go to sleep. It's late as hell here, it must be close to noon where you are. You'll be worse on lack of sleep than alcohol at this point.

No idea. I've decided to avoid beer for 1 month. All the calories from like 8-10 beers whenever I'm out is far too much. Gonna drink less alcohol in general and focus on wine if I have to drink.

Beer is basically my only consumption that keeps me from not being perfectly fit. Could easily lose a bit of weight by doing this + excercising a bit more.
