Default Breathalizer

My girlfriend is going to school for Corrections (probabtion officer). On certain nights she is required to go to peoples houses that are on probation to check on them. They are tested for alcohol as they are not allowed to be drinking. She has a state issued breathalizer for this

The unit is a ALCO-SENSOR IV. We have been doing tests throughout the night as we drink. http://cgi.ebay.com/Alco-Sensor-IV-w...QQcmdZViewItem

1 beer - 10 minutes - .023 bac (blood alcohol content)
2 beer - 20 minutes - .063 bac
3 beer - 20 minutes - .144 bac
4 beer - 20 minutes - .172 bac

pretty interesting I think

Sounds about right.
2 beer is my limit but because I am a smaller size, it is probably closer to .075 for me.

Not even allowed to drink in their own home. Jeez, probation must suck

keep in mind I am 6'3" @ 210lbs.

Yes, probation sucks. They can't even have friends over in the evenings. They are supposed to be at home alone, sober. She checks on 15-20 people every Thursday night.

Geez, I'm 6'4 and 155 lbs, I would be smashed after like two or three beers.

Is that four beers (including the last three you just drank) in twenty minutes or what?

I'm curious what my BAC would have been after two 40'* of Steel Reserve in an hour. (two fridays ago..)
Nevermind, I found a BAC calculator. It says that I would have been at .24 BAC
