Drinkin` quiz - how much?

Post by TJrandom » Fri Dec 19, 2014 6:25 am

Belly up to the bar there – and find out if your consumption is more, or less than your compatriots, and how you measure up to the rest of the world.

According to the averages, I can drink a whole lot more….

I'd better not take the survey. I'd skew the data! :-D

Per person per year, Canada drinks about:
beer 184 pints
wine 107 glasses of wine
spirits 273 shots
Sweet merciful crap! I don't think I've had 107 glasses of wine in my lifetime -- hell, I don't think I've had 17! My beer total probably isn't up to 184 yet, either.

Spirits, okay, yeah. I like my shots. Especially in mugs.

I drink a glass of an alcoholic beverage once every 3 months, and that's the highest rate of alcohol consumption I've had in my life.

Yeah. I don't want to look like a lush in front of my boss.

I think the point was that I was too drunk, at the time, to be of any use to it. Better not to have bothered.

Boy! That's so different from me. I sip lots of scotch and then I cook supper. ;)
