Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, October 19, 2021

This guy spent years of his life researching a drinking contest that happened in 1867. He claims one man took down 36 shots of whiskey. All one right after the other. We read his story and all the details he's been able to stitch together. And we're pretty sure it happened. Or maybe we just really want it to have happened. Either way, we don't really care. It's a great story.

Great story and I liked the nod to Oliver Reed.

I'm sure Andre the Giant would've loved a crack at this.

How many college freshmen drank themselves to death at fraternity initiations? Drinking contests are dangerous.

Well these were 2 fat old white guys so I'd think you'd be thrilled.

I saw this movie once, it was called Raiders of the Lost Ark, and in it this young woman drank a huge Nepali mountainman under the table after each downed about 50 shots, and minutes later she not only was no longer drunk, but she was also able to engage in a life or death gun battle against Nazi thugs and come out on top. Now that's a real woman!
