    This is a survey done among the Czech population. Hospoda is a Czech word for a Pub and it's often the first word (along with Pivo - Beer) that they learn.

    My two close friends were involed in this survey, and I believe they raised the statistics a bit.

    Wow, 11.1% said 10-14 beers at .5 liters each! Bloody hell, I would be comatose. I don't think I could drink 5-7 liters of any fluid in one sitting.

    It's hard for me to drink a lot of beer because it fills me up. I'm much better at handling spirits. However, I still have managed eight in quick time. And a good flowing night I aim to be drinking a pint every thirty minutes.

    That's a British pint, not American. American pints are 16 liquid ounces and British pints are 20 liquid ounces. Not only that but America liquid ounces are 4% smaller than British liquid ounces.

    The Bitish beer definitely filled me up much faster than the American beer. Plus it is obviously stronger. When I first got to England, I got pretty toasted on 1 pint. 3 pints would typically get me pretty legless. I don't recall ever drinking more than 3 pints in one sitting, that was plenty for me.

    I used to be in a pub darts team, bad news for trying to keep slim. Ten pints every Tuesday and Friday followed by a Chinese or Indian down the takeaway. :oops:

    Yesterday, on one of my "stops" I met two (50 59) Britons from somewhere South-East, the one was a Lorry driver and I drank some whiskeys with them and talked about various shits. They were cool guys, they said they're here for a weekend off.

    Most funny was "Wheo did yea pucket op yo English?"
