Scientist: You Can't Get Drunk On Beer

A professor at Yale — back in 1955 — scientifically proved that it's physically impossible for a human to get drunk on beer!

THE AVERAGE alcohol content of American beers is 3.7 per cent by weight (4.7% by volume). In order for the alcohol blood level to be at 0.15 per cent, there would have to be two and one-half quarts of 3.7 beer in the stomach. But the capacity of the human stomach is one and one-half to two quarts.

So much for 0.08! Read the whole theory at Gawker.
