Andre the Giant - a giant drinker as well

Andre the Giant was a giant of a wrestler, but behind the scenes he was also a giant of the bottle This very entertaining article outlines the amazing ability of Andre to drink vast quantities of alcohol without much effect.

... Quote:
You wonít find it in the Guinness Book of World Records, but Andre the Giant holds the world record for the largest number of beers consumed in a single sitting. These were standard 12-ounce bottles of beer, nothing fancy, but during a six-hour period Andre drank 119 of them. It was one of the few times Andre got drunk enough to pass out, which he did in a hallway at his hotel.

His companions, quite drunk themselves, couldnít move the big man. Fearing trouble with cops, they stole a piano cover from the lounge and draped it over Andreís inert form. He slept peacefully until morning, unmolested by anyone. Perhaps the hotel people thought he was a piece of furniture.

Think about it: 119 beers in six hours. Thatís a beer every three minutes, non stop. Thatís beyond epic. Itís beyond the ken of mortal men. Itís god-like.

Well, he was BIG guy. So it would obviously take alot to get him buzzed or drunk considering his body mass. Let's face it if he was small and petite two drinks would get him drunk as a sailor. But I'm still suprised he didn't get alcohol posioning or something.
