For obvious reasons you need to dilute it more.
Unless you have no respect for your body at all.

I have always thought it strange that 'mercans are paid every two weeks, whereas the rest of the civilised world are paid monthly. Why is that?
About 75-6, when the Socialists were trying to spend all the money again (and doing a good job of it) they imposed a pay restraint regime. Everybody's pay rise was limited to £6/week, great for soldiers, miners, etc, for whom £6 was impressive, but sh¡t for doctors, company directors, Tory ministers, etc.

The US supranational giant IBM refused not to give their UK employees a salary increase comparable with that of their US colleagues. The government would not budge. IBM moved pay for UK employees (and AFAIK worldwide) from monthly in arrears to one week in arrears and three weeks in advance. This gave them 13 pay days that year, an effective 8.5% increase. Jobbed. AFAIK having retired 4½ years ago, they're still paid on the 6th of the month.

Thereafter, if payday fell at the weekend, the money went in on the Friday before. Any April when this happened, the UK VP had to write to the Chancellor and explain that this was next tax year's salary to be taxed in the appropriate tax year.
 
I get a tank of derv, pay off Klarna, buy all the bits and pieces I've been putting off, then live like a pauper until next pay day.

Some people prefer that. It does make it easier at times to get paid every two weeks.

I get paid once a month, and it can suck. Feast or famine when you get one check a month. You live like a king for the first week, a normal person for two weeks a peasant the last week before the next pay day.

One of my many jobs was in the offices of the British Rail Loco Works in Derby. We were paid in cash on a Friday morning. There was a pub directly opposite called the Station Inn. No trains were built on a Friday afternoon...

Canadian’s get paid bi-weekly and in many cases weekly depending on your job.....
 
Hope you have access to a padded room then. You'll need it :D
Hey it is one way to kill us off on this side of the pond...legally.

Try this gentleman, it will take you to a new world...

Besides being the nice fella that I am, I plan on fucking a few people over with it as well. Being a British Spirit, will make it easy to sucker the sibling and a few mates into trying it.

Surely Pussar's Rum is West Indian.

I don't know why they do it but it's eminently more civilised and fairer for the employee.
For employment defined as a certain amount of hours per week, paid on a monthly basis you are paid 12 times each year. But paid on a 2 weekly basis, you are paid 26 times a year.
Compared to your "more civilized" world, that means you are getting the equivalent of 13 months of pay for the same 12 months of work.
There are two months each year in which I receive 3 wages instead of 2. A great boon to those who have monthly outlay such as rent etc.
