BERLIN - A man nearly died from alcohol poisoning after quaffing two pints of vodka at an airport security check instead of handing it over to comply with new rules about carrying liquids aboard a plane, police said Wednesday.

The incident occurred Tuesday at the Nuremberg airport, where the 64-year-old man was switching planes on his way home to Dresden from a vacation in Egypt.

New airport rules prohibit passengers from carrying larger quantities of liquid onto planes, and he was told at a security check he would have to either throw out the bottle of vodka or pay a fee to have his carry-on bag checked.

Instead, he chugged the vodka — and was quickly unable to stand or otherwise function, police said.

A doctor called to the scene determined he had possibly life-threatening alcohol poisoning, and he was sent to a Nuremberg clinic for treatment. The man, whose name was not released, is expected to be able to go home in a few days.

I think that figures out to be about 17 shots.

That is pretty brutal, especially for a chug, but... I think I could have done it and maintained. Maybe... it'd be rough.

I know guys who definitely could do it though.

I did a quart of SoCo 100 proof years ago. Can't do that anymore.
I stick to beer now. I could have done that 30 years ago.
Old age is a bitch.

I doubt it... Dave strikes me as a poser and a lightweight.

A plastic Paddy with his Jameson. Do you hear him do shots? With all the panting and the hooting and hollering? Real drinkers don't even flinch when they throw back a shot, while that clown carrys on like he's drinking gasoline.

And don't even get me started on him chasing and mixing Jameson with Coke. :icon_roll Fucking disgraceful.

Jameson with anything other than in a glass is disgrazia! Agreed!

(and yeah, Dave is one of the most non-maintaining drinkers around)

In the wise words of that great sage and thinker of our time, Mr. Ronny B...

"Any fool can drink, a real man maintains."

I use that maintain description all the time now.

Throw that is the Ron Bennington Line of the day thread.
