(Barrett, that’s for you)
My hometown cops are coming up as friend suggestions on Facebook. Whaaaaatttt?
Speaking of cops, the other night as I was nodding off I was startled by flashing lights in my bedroom window… This guy got a DUI right there. They drove his car away and left the girl he was with standing in the cold for a long time (while they were dealing with paperwork in their cars) — longer than I stayed up for. Bad news all around. Everyone should be careful about this for so many reasons, but above all to keep yourself and people around you safe. There’s a handy, printable BAC chart here, and if you’re fancier than I am, there’s this. In Colorado, a DUI is 0.08% (as it is in every state), and “impairment” is 0.05%. This site explains why gender matters (I had always wondered) and also points out that it is not “weight,” exactly, but percent body fat that makes a difference. In case you wondered.
