In the beautiful land of Zimbabwe, a man strolled across the streets. He swayed from side to side and it became obvious that he was drunk. This man ran and stopped in front of a high brow boutique. The boutique displayed lovely and beautiful female mannequins.
This man rushed at a mannequin, pushed it down, pulled down his trousers and boxers, open the legs of the mannequin and did his thing with onlookers taking snapshots and selfies.
Many men get a hard on after taking some alcohol. Alcohol can reduce inhibition but inhibition is totally lost when drunk. Drunkenness rewires the brain.
In Nigeria, most alcoholic drinks come in percentage alcohol. By UK standards, recommended alcohol intake is 21 units per week for men and 14 units per week for women.
Daily intake 1-3 units (8-24g) daily for men and 1-2 units (8-16g) for women. One unit is 8g of alcohol.
How do you know how much alcohol (in grams) is in your drink when it’s right in front of you?
Let’s attempt a simple calculation.
Volume of drink (in litres) x (Percent alcohol x Alcohol density)
Pure alcohol has constant density of 789.24 g/l
For example, 0.35 litre glass of beer with 5.5% alcohol ie (5.5/100=0.055) has 15.2 grams of pure alcohol.
Calculated here 0.35litre x (0.055 x 789.24g/l) ~ 15.2g. This falls within the range for daily intake.
To help you remember,we use acronym- L P D. It means Litre Percent Density.
If you have to drink alcohol, do it smartly. Don’t get drunk.
It’s still a season of festivities.
I love you, I love your health.
