A valiant effort, but...Mikey 5 comments
You are at an airport in Nuremberg on your way home to Dresden, when the check-in officer advises you that new airport rules prohibit you from carrying large quantities of liquid onto the plane.
He also says you are not allowed to board the plane with that one litre bottle of Vodka, but don't worry, you have some options.
a) you pay a fee to have your carry-on bag checked in as cargo
b) throw the bottle away
Now that's one mighty fine looking bottle of Vodka right there and it would be a shame to throw it away, but at the same time paying extra to have it checked in is extortion! So what to do? Introduce a option 'c'.
The 65 year old nearly died of alcohol poisoning when he decided the best option was to skull the entire vodka bottle. Police said he instantly became unable to stand or otherwise function. A doctor arrived and the man was sent to a Nuremberg clinic for treatment.
Anyone who knows the sting of Vodka will appreciate the effort it must have taken to skull 1 litre of the stuff. To give you an idea, it smells and resembles stock standard paint thinners, but without the nasty side effect of 'near-death-experience'. Except of course when you try to skull an entire bottle.
