    someone correct me if I'm wrong but isnt alcohol mainly absorbed in the stomach? I guess the colon absorbs it as well as the guy died... go figure..I've never heard of this before...

    how in the world could anyone absorb that much fluid? Wonder how many times she had to do it and over what period of time to get it all in.

    Yes, the colon can absorb alcohol. I remember my mom telling me years ago that alcoholics used to do this, so that others couldn't smell the booze on their breath.

    I guess some people have pickeled brains.

    I wonder if the man consented and asked her to do this. I find it hard to imagine she did this without his consent.

    Wow. I have never heard of this. It would never cross my mind as being something in the realm of the possible.
