    I Was wondering if i purchase enough, say Jack Daniels whiskey to fill a big bath for me to get in to, i get in the bath, my skin starts to absorb the alcohol, i breathe the alcohol vapors and after minutes im too drunk to get up so i drown in the alcohol that is absorbed by the body and damages the brain and the heart and evidently kills me.

    Is that possible from a scientific point of view?

    Im not cuicidal or something, just wondering if that is something that is possible in reality.

    please reply

    Um... as far as I know, no. What you've posted does not make a lot of sense to me.

    This isn't scientific, and this seems too trivial to be compiling data for, but you would not be too drunk to stand after a few minutes of breathing in the vapours. And, having never attempted this, I'm not even sure about alcohol absorption via the skin.

    Was this from a television show?

    You're not going to that type of information here. Even if it's just theoretical to you, it can give other people ideas.

    for a start how much would that cost, but no serious it would not work, and you shouldnt do it tell us why you feel you want to do that?

    A bathtub full of alcohol would probably just be a huge waste of money. Although the skin can absorb chemicals, I doubt that you would get drunk from sitting in a bathtub full of alcohol. If you had a cut on your skin it would probably burn though.
