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.
#9
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?

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.

You should be able to metabolize one drink per hour. Not if your liver is messed up, though. Right after I got over being sick in a way that messed with my liver, I was awful at drinking (I've always been a lightweight and have never had tolerance, but it was worse). I got really tipsy off about 20 oz. of Guiness. XD Thought I had improved, but the four drinks I had over the course of several hours lead me to be so drunk I walked into my table, knocked over a lamp, and broke the slide on my bong. So... All kinda depends?
#23
an hour per standard drink.
a beer = about 1.3 standard drinks.

that's pretty much all I got out of my Responsible Service of Alcohol Certificate.

WTF! You're underage. Don't drink alcohol! You're little brains need to develop before you start poisoning yourself with Jesus Juice.

A wise person once told me that nothing good ever comes from drinking alcohol.

He was right.

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

Source: http://www.nature.com/pr/journal/v1/n3/abs/pr196716a.html


Not really. Alcohol metabolism is tricky and the pharmacology is one long studied. While not only is your kM (michaelis menton constant) of your specific alcohol dhg is going to be different than reported values, you must also take into account how much of the enzyme your body produces (also it's catalytic rate/ maximum velocity), among other pharmacokinetic parameters. Alcohol is especially interesting because it exhibits both first order (the more you consumer, the more your body metabolizes and clears) and zero-order (finite amount/ceiling that is metab/cleared) kinetics, depending on how much you drink. However, the amount in question is almost always at zero order (clearence ceiling) and around that 1 to 1.5 drinks per hour for an average male. However, everyone is different and you will NEVER have a definitive answer unless someone does all of the biochemical testing on you. Though, you can safely experiment with small amounts yourself.

your body metabolizes one drink (1 shot/beer) every hour. if you drink more than that you will get drunk.
learned that in health class.
as for leaving the body? ehhh it takes up to a full day (I believe) to get it ALL out of your system. (if you get breathalyzed)
#33
I'd just like to point out that the body doesn't metabolise a drink every hour, it's supposed to be around about 1 unit. Which is a shot, and 1/3ish of a beer.

I believe.

Is this thread serious? You drank 6 beers last night and you're asking if it's still in you the NEXT DAY?

Fucking kids these days, getting blitzed off their asses 24/7. TS just turn yourself into the authorities now, alcohol never leaves your system.

What do you think they're going to stop you and immediately ask if you've been drinking? It's not like you're still going to be drunk.

Stop being a pussy bitch TS.

Totally, I once broke my arm, had a couple of slices of bacon, motherfucking arm was brand new after it!

Ts: The strength of the beer and how much you ate all becomes a factor.
I'm guessing the beer was 5% or something like that?
Maybe you should just go another time if you're not sure, bacon cures everything, except death.
Also do the police set up random check points for license and alcohol like here in sweden? If you get caught driving under the influence with no license over here, you have no chance of getting a license in the near future.
