    When I were a young lad... I once drank two bottles 'o Bacardi one night at a Corporals Mess function.... when I took ma clothes off, no boogar noticed as there was 3 chaps sat neked on bar stools drinking and chatting away with the Girlfriends, Wves and Wimin.... nary an eyelid was batted.... of course I just collapsed and went to sleep in a vacant arm chair....... :p

    Now that I live in an Old People's Home... Matron won't allow me to do this.... not any more.... not even to lean sideways to break wind...... :roll: :oops:

    I didn't know you could buy spirits as weak as 15% ABV. 8O
    The branded stuff (e.g. Bells, Teachers, Grouse, etc.) tends to be 40% ABV and I thought the weakest, cheapest "own brand" (e.g. ASDA Smart Price) was 34 - 35% ABV.

    (15% ABV usually refers to a substantial wine or a cheap vermouth.)

    Incidentally, "proof" is completely different:

    They must be easing down. When I was working in Aberdeenshire '76 to '82 the local fav spirit was voddie, but with coke or Irn Bru, mainly because the coke covered the taste of the spirit and they could get pissed faster and vodka was cheaper. Not too many were drinking the old'water of life,' but downing a bottle of vodka per day was no big deal, plus a few Tennents of course. :D

    Average weekly sales for Scottish drinkers were 26.5 units per person over the age of 18, equivalent to about 11 pints of beer or three bottles of wine.

    jeez ... I get through about 45 a week and I thought i was a bit of a 'weak sister' and was letting the side down!
  8. Haven't had a drink in 8 years so there is some very pished person taking my share.

    Heh, whilst at 6Armd, me and a Tels Tech used to drink 2 bottles of wine each, on the Friday afternoon, head down the Wksp bar until closing, then onto the Landsmann, followed by the Breakfast Bar. Back in the days when a binge drinker was classed as a social drinker.

    Good times at a shite unit.

    I try my best to get through a half dozen bottles of single malt a year but am nowhere near the 46 bottle range.

    Bucky is the problem though according to a BBC survey

    Bucky, That's the game, Jim.........

    Thought I'd slip this in here, don't want to create the image that the Jocks have a drink problem by starting another thread...........TeeHee

    Apparently its something to do with the caffeine levels. Bollux, that just keeps the jocks up all night.

    I would have thought it was more to do with mixing it with Tennants Special

    I see the survey never even attempted to count the alcohol consumption of the Northern Irish...

    I suppose if our 'well respected' Christian politicians can get pissed-up, and screw teenage boys, it says it all really...
