it cost me a liver.

I am Homer Simpson? And I've consumed 9123.4 drinks in my lifetime? Yay me! (Or something.)

This reminds me of a song by the Silver Jews:
In 27 years
I've drunk fifty thousand beers
and they just wash against me like the sea into a pier...


Great link!

So...according to this test, it is impossible to go out drinking less than once a week? Okay....

Not at all, you can count the nights you stay in drinking.

10491 drinks

I counted the nights I stayed in. Hips. I can almost buy a ferrari.

Crap, I'm Mother Theresa. Doesn't it count for anything that I started drinking at 16 (in the US)?

It doesn't really work for me. I started drinking at 17 and drank about 3 nights a week all through college and for a couple of years after. I was more like Bluto Blutarski then. Now I hardly drink at all. It's been 6 months since I've had alcohol and almost a year since I went out to drink.

hilatron, I'm with you -- this drink-o-meter isn't too accurate since it doesn't allow for underage.

It also doesn't take into account holidays, weddings and funerals, and football season. So, I figure it's about 25% low for me, even at 7834 drinks. (yes, I've already put myself on the liver transplant list, thank you for asking.)

I'm Boris Yeltsin!! *hick*

Like nyxxxx, my consumption has varied a fair bit over the years, so it's not really even vaguely accurate. It also doesn't take account of the healthy and sensible practice of drink-mixing. Oh well, for the record, I've had 10044.32 pints, and I'd also like to mention that last Friday I was home before midnight and didn't lose any wallets or mobile phones.

What the hell would I do with 4 Ferraris?

In the same light-heartedheaded er, spirit, here's what your astrological sun sign says about your drinking habits. (Via Gawker)

And I forgot to say thanks, Ljubljana, for the amusing test!

I'm barely a Chelsea Clinton (which I consider being way superior to a Jenna Bush), and strangely, I share another trait with her, being mortifyingly ashamed of my parents...

I could at least have been the Chelsea *Hotel*. Then Leonard Cohen could've written a song about me. But no...

Get Drunk and crash it in .96 of a tree.
