which way ancohol digest ??? in any way
1 evaporate at lung ( so drink and speak we can drink alot !
2 liver
3 kiney??
???
???
anyone know more ?? tell me

- alcohol is directly absorbed through the digestive tract, then through portal vein it goes to live and then as Poison said it gets converted into less 'poisonous' things.:shock:

:lol:

And if you drink and speak / breathe normally , u r just wasting ur money[ if it is urs] beacuase the extra 'effect' of that extra drunk alcohol won't be there. So there is natural limit to the 'effect'. :roll:

The proper term is "hydroscopic", alcohol (except methanol) attracts and absorbs water 8)

So... you're saying breathalysers are effective because alcohol evaporates out of the lungs along with water and CO2...? It comes out with your breath, so the breathalyser picks it up? If that's a yes... why (does it end up evaporating) ?

Well, as someone said earlier on, it's given to you by police to check how much you've had to drink, whether or not you're over the limit. It measures blood alcohol content.

No. Comes from the contraction of "Breath" and "Analyser". Could also be called ethylometer (From ethyl acohol, or ethanol, and meter)

As I thought before ;) IMO, I prefer "Breath-analyser" (without any word contraction) rather than "Breathlyser" because the meaning will change after all 8) You know, "analyse" and "lyse" is totally different.
Is that term official? If not, I suggest to stop using the contraction version. If it is official, I suggest the nomenclature comittee to stop using the contraction version :lol:

If my main questions have been answered, I havent picked all of it up yet because they're scattered in bits and pieces, some that I dont comprehend...

In my last post, I meant these questions, Canalon
