Default Jim Beam Calculation

If you buy the 1.75 liter bottle and 250 ml is enough to get you hammered, that's a one week supply.

There's not enough Jim Beam in the world to get me hammered, as I can't stand the taste of that crap.

250 ml is one third of a fifth. That gets no one hammered. IT TAKES A MINIMUM OF A HALF fifth In winter, and three quarters in summer when you sweat it out. premise faulty at best. get two.

All I can say is it freaked my doctor out when she asked what my idea of a "few" drinks was and I told her 250 ml. I was lying, of course.

I'm a licensed Professional Engineer, so I can do Beam calculations. I've determined that 1.75/week is inadequate.

anything over 1 glass of wine is "non healthy" they say. I don't expect to live to 100, but I don't want to die of liver failure either

A fifth makes me exactly 5 bourbon and cokes. That is the reason it’s called a fifth.
