My first thought on seeing the url was "Who cares if Ru Paul is drunk?" Ah.

lia: perhaps you find that:

This page is probably out of focus.

I don't need that thing to tell me when i'm drunk. When I've consume a lot of alcohol, I'll know that I'm intoxicated. Well, I'll also know when it takes me half an hour to get the mouse to click on a button.

Light beer at 2.7%, and heavy at less than 5%. That's some pretty weak stuff.

I have a feeling that this site is aimed at our US brethren...

(not that I'm laying down the international drinking gauntlet...)

I dunno, it asks your weight and height in metric. And to the cousins, that's tantamount to a communist plot.

Also, I'm not sure they know what "pissed" means.

I like being called "the cousins."

I know what pissed means. It means that if I am pissed, I am too drunk to calculate my weight in kilograms :)

What are these "kg" things?

so pissed means you're drunk but i still don't quite understand what taking the piss out of someone is. i think it means that you're joking or messing w/that person and "taking the piss out of them."

if you're drunk don't you know you're drunk? do you really need a web site to tell you that? i can't even convert feet and pounds to the metric system when i'm sober. why not ask everyone in the US to convert their weight to stone. what in the HELL is that all about?

i think the whole thing is pants! =]

The best way I've found to calculate pissed-ness is to try playing video poker at a decent clip (500+ hands per hour). After just a half a glass of beer my error rate goes up significantly.

Well according to this, I've been dead since last Friday.

Nice.

I usually like to fire up q3 when i'm in a bit too deep. but it usually goes a bit pear-shaped cuz my eye/hand coord is off.

(number of posts to sites such as MeFi and threewayaction + number of slobbering emails to sorry ex-boyfriends) / 1.5 = number of drinks i've had. and i don't even need to use the silly metric system!

If I'm drunk, I'm usually nowhere near a computer... now if it was the PalmPilot...

I have to say that in posting this link, I had been trying to work out how the hell you'd ever get round to using it. As everyone has noted, if you're really drunk, you tend to notice before/during being logged on to your computer.

On the other hand, if you were at a bar and wanted to maybe check (approximately, mind) if you were over the legal limit before you get in your car, then it is a little unlikely that you'd be able to get to this site.

tj: that idea is pretty darn good. If my mobile/pda had a little function on it that did this, I'd use it.

sugarfish: That is so true! I really want someone to invent a breathylizer logon that stops me accessing the internet if I'm over a certain limit. It sure would save me a lot of the crap I've ended up putting myself and others through recently.
