Irvin 1 Alexander M. Irvin Janet Johnson Judicial Review October 18 th , 2006 Alcohol 101 After visiting the virtual bar I drank 12 light beers, and 5 shots of straight vodka. My blood alcohol content was .156. I knew my content would be high, but I didn’t expect it to be dangerously high. It took nine hours for my BAC to return to zero. I didn’t think it would take that long to go back down to zero. I thought after eating and sleeping for a few hours would be enough to take it back down to zero. The BAC level that is lethal to a person is .40. It takes 25 beers in an hour to get me to a 4.0. If I were in contact with a person who had alcohol poising I would dial an emergency number as soon as I saw the symptoms for poising. I did not know seltzer or tonic takes alcohol in the blood stream faster then a regular soda. I didn’t know my BAC would continue to rise 20-40 minutes after my last drink. I also didn’t know a 1.5 oz. Shot of liquor, a 5 oz. Glass of wine, and a 12 oz. Beer all have the same amount of alcohol.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
