    Former MLB pitcher and Detroit Tigers announcer Lary Sorensen arrested, again, for DUI.

    Blood alcohol content? A cool .48.

    Have fun back in prison, Larry.

    Intravenous drip of absinthe.
  5. This guy was impressed:

    "Wow!" was the reaction of Dr. James Langenbucher, an associate professor with the Center of Alcohol Studies at Rutgers University. "That's what we call an 'LD-50' -- a level that's above the lethal dose for 50 percent of the population."

    Thinking about it for a second, and please someone correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't 0.48 mean the guys blood was practically 50-50 blood and alcohol?

    I'm willing to bet I could do it. But I certainly wouldn't drive.

    Hell, he was drunker than that when he pitched for the Cubs.

    I think it's safe to say that it's generally not a good thing when a doctor says "Wow" about you.
