SOFIA, Bulgaria (AP) - Incredulous doctors made five blood tests on a drunken man to confirm he had a blood-alcohol content of 0.914, far above the usual life-threatening range, police and doctors said Tuesday.

The 67-year old man, whose name was not released, was hospitalized Dec. 20, when a car knocked him down on a street in the southern Bulgarian city of Plovdiv.

A breath test showed an incredibly high blood alcohol level, but police officers thought the result was inaccurate because the man was conscious and talked with them, said Col. Angel Rangelov, head of police in Plovdiv.

Laboratory analysis of five subsequent blood samples taken the same day confirmed that the man had had a blood-alcohol level of 0.914, Rangelov said. A blood-alcohol level of 0.55 is usually considered life threatening.

The man was reported in stable condition after treatment for head injuries.

Just goes to show that blood ETOH levels don't tell you anything about someone's level of intoxication. A girl who never drinks could be wasted at a level of 0.04 while this guy can function at near 1.0

:LOL:

Some german foreign exchange student programmed some on my calculator. I was too stupid to figure out the code. I messed around with it, though, to try to make the game different, and it worked until I screwed it up one day and couldn't fix it. , to me, for not writing it down.

One game he called "Bullshit" which was like high or low with exponentially increasing point values. Until you guessed wrong, in which case the screen would show the word, well, you know.
