me and my housemates were wondering if it would be possible to drink a small child full of beer (inspired by Irish comedian Tommy Tiernan)

We decided that a 3 year old would qualify as a small child.

One of my housemates has worked it out as such

Child weighs 31 lbs = 14 kg

Litre of water = roughly kilogram

We took it that beer would be about the same

14 litres.

28 cans. A slab.

So yes, but you'd need to start early.

I was wondering if the Pit could work it out better. For example we weren't very exact as the density of beer =/= the density of water exactly. Also, weight may not be the best way to do it, as it includes stuff like bone which is much heavier than beer would be were you to fill a small child with beer. Volume may be a better measure but more difficult to work out.

You'd have to drown a child and see how much water spills over to find its exact volume.

I'm on it. BRB

Only the irish....

wow

#8

Ale or lager?

#9

What's the alcohol content of said beer?

Insane Irish...

..... Smart enough to get a dagger past your guards.... old man

#11

I'm not sure I could drink a small child of anything, really. I don't think I've got enough room in me to fit that.

#12

ale, lager, pilsener or stale piss?

#13

Ale or lager?

I'd say lager, for simplicities sake. Although I prefer ale.

We could always work out both.

What's the alcohol content of said beer?

Between 4 and 5 percent

#14

Haha

#15

31lb child?

How old is this kid?

EDIT: I r tard.

Hmm. Over 24 hours, it's doable. Would feel rather sh

WEBBDIT: Much as I strongly prefer ale/non-piss, I could not stomach that much heavy booze. I'd need a fairly easy lager.

so beer has roughly 5% of alcohol.

1 liter of water is 1 kilogramm, and ethanol has the molecular mass of 46.06844 g/mol.

now if only anyone could tell me how much one kg of ethanol weighs, we can calculate this s

EDIT: X be the amount of beer you'd have to drink.

Y be the weight of 1 liter of ethanol

Z be the weight of the kid/person

X = Z*L / (.95kg + Y*kg)

and then you have a formula with which you can calculate the amount of beer you'd have to drink to drink a person of any weight at any age.

There ya go.

As a scientist I approximate that 1kg of ethanol will weigh 1kg.

#22

You'd have to install a tap on his pen0r.

#23

How high of an alcohol content are we talking here? I don't know if I could drink it if it was over, like, 4% alcohol.

There ya go.

Make it a small child + a pint, and I mean a really, really good pint, and you're on.

#25

The best thing to do would be to put a small cild in a large blender.Blend until fully liquidised, and then match with beer.

Beer also has sugar and stuff though.

The internet tells me that the density of (a good Austrian) beer is about 1.00680 g/cm3

Let's get the party started.

#31

You could model the limbs as being cylinders and the head and torso as a 3D rectangle which name escapes me. Make rough estimates in light of the body's shape to make it as close as possible I'd say.

X be the amount of 40% proof vodka you'd have to drink.

Y be the weight of 1 liter of ethanol

Z be the weight of the kid/person

X = Z*L / (.6kg + Y*kg)

and then you have a formula with which you can calculate the amount of vodka you'd have to drink to drink a person of any weight at any age.

because vodka is cooler than beer.

Here have a Little Timmy Smoothie..

You could always submerge a 3 year old in a vat of water to see how much is displaced then drink the equivalent amount of beer

Also, possibly the best way to do this is to steal a child and cover him in plaster of Paris. Then you can use the cast to make child-shaped beer holders, and market those sons of bitches and get rich.

Preferably this could be done without drowning any toddlers
