no, I'm not, so what is the reasonable amount that doesn't cause you harm ?
You have to remember that the vasodilatation from the hottub will make the effect of the alcohol much more pronounced.
good. you can get buzzed off Michelob Ultra then....
Sue keeps our hot tub at 105F. After 30 minutes in there, you're a little dizzy even if you have zero alcohol.
I believe that is referred to, medically, as stage 1 soup
FBI just released the results of there investigation. The tourist did not die from tainted alcohol. It was natural causes. So guess the story was overblown by the media.
FBI finds no link among tourist deaths in D.R.: Travel Weekly
well i'm not surprised it turn out to be nonsense, how do you feel about your part in spreading unsubstantiated rumours in increasing the poverty in one of the poorest countries on earth ?
as it is, that people would sooner cancel their cheap holiday rather than do without alcohol for a week, shows the level of alcohol dependency in society
I think I was doing the opposite of spreading unsubstantiated rumours. My initial post was skeptical of the idea the alcohol was tainted and I thought the fear was overblown. So if anything I was trying to correct the hysteria and rumors.
this quote from your op seems not to support the quote above
''But I guess when your dealing with these impoverished nations I could see them possibly cutting corners on health and safety in alcohol production.''
Your cherrypicking my initial post
i'm just quoting what you put,
To clarify; cause of death was determined by Dominican authorities to be from natural causes, not the FBI. The FBI determined there was no connection with the tourist deaths.
But fully agree that in this day and age of instant, un-vetted news, you need to look deeper into things before you run off spouting what could be unsubstantiated rumors in the place of facts
Yes you are correct. It says no connection between deaths. But it said Toxicology testing completed to date have been consistent with the findings of local authorities. So I guess there is no evidence the Dominican authorities were incorrect that the deaths were from natural causes.
a State Department spokesperson said, “Toxicology testing completed to date have been consistent with the findings of local authorities. We have seen no increase over the past several years in the number of U.S. citizens who pass away while visiting or living in the Dominican Republic. Many of the U.S. citizen deaths reported in media were determined by Dominican authorities to be from natural causes. We have no indication of any connection between these deaths.”123
