I never knew my dad was Bulgarian. What a gun,

Incredulous doctors made five blood tests on a drunken man to confirm he had a blood-alcohol content of 0.914, far above the usual life-threatening range, police and doctors said Tuesday.

The 67-year old man, whose name was not released, was hospitalized Dec. 20, when a car knocked him down on a street in the southern Bulgarian city of Plovdiv.

A breath test showed an incredibly high blood alcohol level, but police officers thought the result was inaccurate because the man was conscious and talked with them, said Col. Angel Rangelov, head of police in Plovdiv.

I supposed when you’re that pissed (listed on the intoxication scale as a REED or a YELTSIN level of drunkenness) you’re not going to notice them continuously gouging the shit out of you for extra blood samples.

And given that at that stage you probably wouldn’t be moving too steadily how pissed was the bloke driving the car?

Remember kids - in some parts of the United States you’re not legally off your face behind the wheel until you blow 0.99 on the breathalyser. Rejoice! Drive on the wrong side of the road! Sideswipe a bus load of nuns and small children and cause them to crash into a ravine! What a country.
