Killer vodka was 'equal to 75 beers'

Postby dclxvi » Wed May 12, 2010 12:06 pm

The bottle of vodka that James Webster drank was the alcohol equivalent of 75 stubbies of beer or pre-mixed bottled drinks, his grieving uncle says.

King's College boarder James, 16, died on Sunday morning after drinking the vodka at a birthday party.

His uncle, Donald Webster, said yesterday that he believed James' death was the result of ignorance. "I think they were all too young, there was a lack of education what to do," he said. "None of them knew how lethal a bottle of vodka can be. The people need to know that."
Mr Webster said he suspected the people involved did not know the difference between the bottle of vodka James had taken from his grandmother and that of a similar sized popular youth drink known as Big Foot – an 8 per cent alcohol mix of vodka and raspberry in a plastic 1.125 litre bottle.

"If kids knew that a bottle of vodka contained 75 [pre-mixed drinks], that would be a big help."

Mr Webster said the family had been shocked to hear one of James' friends, Jamie Rodriguez, tell TVNZ: "I saw him sculling back some vodka – like maybe a quarter of a bottle – like water."

Mr Webster said they wanted to cry out at that point: "Why didn't people call the ambulance?".

James' death left a college in Taupo reflecting on a similar experience. Last year, Malcolm Nicholl, 14, was found dead from intoxication and hypothermia after spending a night unconscious on a hockey field.

The coroner found he had been drinking Cody's Colt bourbon and colas, which have an alcohol content of 12 per cent.

College principal Peter Moyle said the King's College experience was something many schools dealt with, and his school was still coming to terms with what happened to Malcolm.

"There are some people who have never really fully recovered from it," he said. "A lot of people struggle with what happened.

"In our school [the death] has raised awareness of alcohol ... of looking after each other."

Mr Moyle believed the Government needed to place stricter measures around youth and alcohol. "Sometimes when it comes to alcohol, young people are completely lost."


If that's not a load of shit, I don't know what is. he didn't know the difference? LIKE FUCK.
Last time I checked, your average 40oz of vodka contained ~29 standard drinks. sounds like the adults involved here are about as fucking stupid as the kids...

so it turns out a 1 litre bottle of spirits with 75 standard drinks in it would have to be 95.1% alcohol....

Not saying that the guy in the article is right, coz 75 sounds like bullshit,
but,
when you allow for how long 1 standard drink of beer takes to consume and process through your system vs how long it takes to drink 1 standard drink of vodka, then 29 standard drinks of vodka in a very short period of time would likely equate to fucking you up more than 29 standard drinks of beer over a longer period.

hmmm well say 75 drinks of 5% 330ml beer = 1237.5ml alcohol = 3.09L of 40% alcohol

even if they meant 75std drinks (1.3 drinks per bottle?) that's still like 57.7 beers = 2.3L of 40% alcohol

That's a shit load.

A litre of 40% vodka divdied into 75 drinks works out to 5.3ml of alcohol - which would be 75 330ml botles of....1.6% beer.

So would actually have been more like 23 beers (about 32 standard drinks) - more likely?

I think my maths is right?

The kid did die thought so he probably had a fair bit

It he was fatter he might have lived.
Everyone knows fatter people can handle their alcohol better.

Eat some pies with your beers broe.

Maybe if he'd nailed 13 dirty-burgers beforehand he would have been sweet.

Could have had an underlying health issue that we don't know about, or more likely choked on his own vomit.

But let's ignore that and concentrate on the hysteria instead.

29 standard drinks in an hour or so is enough to kill me, fuckin easy.
when i was young and stupid ive drunk close to that amount, obviously didnt die, but i was always big, small cunt like that, shit doesnt surprise me at all, probably could have survived if hed been chucked on a drip, but oh well...

this knee jerk hysteria is retarded tho, i felt like asking that stupid uncle prick on tv when that campbell asshole asked him what could be done about it.

WHY ARENT YOU CALLING FOR ALCOHOL BANS?
i mean in light of marijuana being illegal, i dont actually think alcohol should be banned, just seems a pretty stark contrast.

Does it say anywhere what type of vodka it was? Maybe his gran used to hit the 160 proof (80%) shit. My maths is rubbish but does this mean the bottle would have contained 58 standard drinks (assuming you can just double the amount if you double the alcohol level)? Don't know if you can buy booze that strong in NZ but you can easily bring it into the country. Gave a mate a bottle of 80% absinthe from the Uk as a present once. Went to meet him and he'd drank it all in one session combined with 2litres of poppy seed tea and ended up in resus. 75 standard drinks though makes me think the media is full of shit

I can definitely see how raising the drinking age to 20 will stop this sort of thing. If the age was higher then the kid would have never stolen it from his grandmother because... um... er... he would have been all like "OH MAN THE DRINKING AGE IS LEIK 20 LOL THATS ILLEGAL BETTER NOT DO IT AE"

Can you chuck up a link Logan? Would be keen to see who is printing this shit.

I took to booze with enormous enthusiasm at 15 and almost immediately became a raging piss artist. I've got into some right states, but so far have avoided hospital or the drunk tank, let alone sudden death, though perhaps very narrowly a few times.

Derek: Well, uh, it's not a very pleasant story..but, uh,
David: He's passed on.
Derek: he died. uh...he choked on..the ac- the official explanation
was he choked on vomit.
Nigel: It was actually, was actually someone else's vomit.
It's not....
David: It's ugly.
Nigel: You know. There's no real....
Derek: You know they can't prove whose vomit it was...they don't
have the facilities at Scotland Yard....
David: You can't print, there's no way to print a spectra-photograph
Nigel: You can't really dust for vomit.

If it was 80% there is no way he'd be sculling it back a quarter bottle at a time. 40% maybe, but fuck off with this 75 bottles bullshit.

Speaking of this though, anyone watch the campbell live interview? it was fucking horrendous
JC: "what are we gonna do about this though?"
dumb cunt uncle: "what can we do?"
JC: (looking defeated) "I just don't know..."

How about, you realise that sometimes deaths happen, and it's not particularly fair, but that is just how life works. Just man the shit up, grieve for the one you have lost, and stop being media whores because whatever the hell you do it will make no difference.
Shit's unfair, fuck up.
