                  .389? It wouldn't surprise me if I surpassed that one time. Not at 15 though. Congrats to this kid!

                    How Much is Too Much?
                    Scientists use the term "lethal dose" (LD) to describe the dose (or in the case of alcohol, the concentration) that produces death in half the population (LD:50). Most authorities agree that blood alcohol concentrations in the 0.40 - 0.50% range meet the requirements for the LD:50. The blood alcohol concentration is the percentage of alcohol in the blood that results after alcohol is absorbed from the stomach into the blood supply. Obviously, studies of lethal dosage cannot be tested empirically in the laboratory, so the LD:50 for alcohol is estimated from post-mortem cases in which alcohol poisoning was found to be the primary cause of death. However, there are documented cases of fatal overdoses from alcohol at blood alcohol concentrations lower than 0.40%. To place this in perspective, a 100-pound woman or man who consumed 9-10 standard drinks, respectively, in less than an hour would be in the LD:50 range. A 200-pound man would have to consume about 5-6 drinks per hour for 4 hours to reach the LD:50. Although such high rates of consumption are atypical of most situations, participating in drinking "games" or club "initiations" often involves highly unregulated alcohol consumption. Impaired judgment from intoxication, coupled with large amounts of alcohol, is a potentially fatal combination.

                          I wonder how much this girl weighs. If she's a 15-year-old girl that weighs 200 pounds, it would be less shocking.

                            Why would that be less shocking? It would have taken a lot more booze to get her to .389 if she weighed 200 Lbs.

                              It's my understanding that, as a general rule, the heavier you are the more alcohol you can absorb. Is that incorrect?
