'World record' drinking man fails to make Guinness book

A Latvian man who has amazed medics by surviving what police have described as a "world record drinking binge" has been told he won't get his name in the Guinness Book of Records.

Latvian police say the middle-aged man consumed around twice the blood-alcohol level considered deadly.

They say they found the unidentified drinker in an unconscious state, but medics found he was stable and recorded 7.22 parts per million of alcohol in a blood test, police spokeswoman Ieva Zvidre said.

An average person would vomit at around 1.2, lose consciousness at 3.0 and stop breathing at a level of about 4.0 parts per million, Ms Zvidre said, adding: "This is one for the Guinness Book of Records."

It is not known what alcoholic beverage the man drank.

Emergency ward head Martins Sics said there is no record of anybody having survived such a dose, even in neighbouring Russia which takes pride in its vodka-guzzling traditions. "He won't remember a thing when he comes to," Dr Sics said, reports gateway2russia.com.

A Guinness world records spokesman said: "We don't condone drinking large amounts of alcohol as it would just encourage people to drink more and more. We do not keep records on how much a single person has drunk."

However, the records book says Latvia is not one of the highest countries for total alcohol consumption per capita. Luxembourg is rated number one in the world for alcohol consumption, with each of its residents downing an average 12.4 litres of pure alcohol in a year. It is followed by the Czech Republic, whose citizens drank 10.9 litres, and Ireland which increased its intake to 10.8 litres.

Wow, I thought I had been drunk before 8-o . That's just plain crazy.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I recently read about a guy who had even more alcohol in his blood. He tried to kill himself by drinking lots of vodka or stuff in a very short time period. That's the only way not to vomit, you have to get it in quickly so your body doesn't function correctly before the vomit reaction comes...

well, he failed his suicide attempt. I wouldn't miss him very much, though. stupid...
