What is a drink equivalent? What is proof? How much is too much? How much can one person drink? And why do people always get intro trouble around BAC .25?

What are the stages of intoxication? How much does one drink raise your B.A.C. What is an alphabetic alcoholic binge.

Then, of course, there is the naked native parrot dance.



  1. Any chance you’ll start posting excerpts of your lectures? I greatly enjoyed the posting of your students papers a while back, and would love to get a chance to see the lectures that inspired them in their topics.

    OK, who am I fooling, I really just want to see your lectures because I’m curious. Especially this recent one regarding alcohol. I’m not familiar with the BAC.25 trouble spot. Of course, I don’t work patrol so I don’t see a lot of that, but I’m interested nonetheless 🙂

  2. Is there a practical lab to go with the lecture? 😉
