Yahoo – French police opened an investigation on Wednesday following the death of a man in his 50s after he downed 56 shots during a drinking competition. The man, who was not named, was attempting to beat the previous record of 55 shots in a bar in Clermont-Ferrand in central France on Friday. “He swallowed around 30 glasses in the space of a minute,” a police source told AFP.
So I’m just gonna go out on a whim here and say that was pretty ill-advised. I mean I guess I can’t fault the guy too much since he got the record and didn’t die right there on the spot (died the next day after going into a coma). He at least got to “enjoy” one night as the man who holds the record for drinking the most shots in one night at some bar in Clermont-Ferrand in central France so maybe it was all worth it? I don’t know. What did this bozo expect though? I’m yacking for days after drinking anything more than a few shots in one full night. This dude took down 30 in one minute. What a maniac. There’s no possible way anyone could ever expect to survive that. I understand that the French are assholes Lloyd, but anyone with half a brain realizes that this was a kamikaze mission right from the gecko. Pretty brutal way to go out though. I’m a relatively big pussy when it comes to taking shots but I feel like even the biggest hardo shot-guys in the world hate taking them at least a little bit deep down inside. No chance in heck did this unnamed warrior enjoy himself after the first 30 seconds. But he powered through and went out like a champ (read: jackass). The only person dumber in this situation than the dude who croaked is the bar owner for not making him sign any kind of liability waiver. Wouldn’t expect anything less from the French though.
