A Man After Charles’ Own Heart

posted by on December 12 at 20:27 PM

A man nearly died from alcohol poisoning after quaffing a liter (two pints) of vodka at an airport security check instead of handing it over to comply with new carry-on rules, police said Wednesday.

At least we know that if Charles died from alcohol poisoning, he died one happy mothafo'.

speaking of security, what's with the huge military choppers circling over the city the last couple of days every hour? Are they looking for me?

I was about to type "Jesus H. Christ" in reaction to the vodka guy, but blip's comment has me wondering about the choppers as well... especially since I think they just flew over my apartment.

Yeah, they've been shakin' the shit out of my building.

that calls for a liter of vodka who's down with me

I just emailed a slog tip about the choppers. Freaky. Me no like.

If you want to see video of people chugging a liter of vodka in one go, visit and search. It's a popular entertainment in Russia -- go out and pay a homeless street drunk a few bucks to chug a bottle and film him.

I did the same thing with my $40 hair conditioner. They were NOT going to take it from me. Bitches.

Drank it, or conditioned your hair?

Ooh, the choppers. Two twin-rotor biggish ones, and I swear to gawd the one in the lead was flying without running lights for some reason.

M you are freaking cool.

@ 10 - probably a Boeing CH-47 Chinook. Because the war machine begins at home...

I always forget - are you supposed to die in the red zone or the white zone at the airport?

I should have done that with my little bottle of gin at LAX... that thing cost $3.50!

@blip: holy shit, they're out there, too? They've flown over my apt in Issaquah on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, between 5pm and 9pm. It's enough to freak the cat out and rattle the plates. WTF indeed! And yeah, the one in the lead is running without lights, which seems stupid in low heavy clouds, but whatever.

They've got big prongs on the front, too -- some kind of radar antenna? Think they can see me standing on my porch giving them the double finger?

And that was the last time anyone heard from the man known as Fnarf.

Amelia, you are so astute!
