Or when sounded as 'A' as in 'neighbor' or 'weigh'.
Of course, there are some weird exceptions...

5 pints (2.366 liters) blood. 0.05% BAC = 1.1830 milliliters alcohol in blood.
1 wine drink = 5 oz = 147.87 milliliters fluid
1 80-proof 1.25 oz shot = 36.97 milliliters fluid
1 beer = 12 oz = 354.88 milliliters fluid
Something does not quite compute, though the Handbook does mention that
These one drink equivalents change if you are drinking ale, malt liquors, fortified wines, port, brandy, different proof liquor, or if you are drinking on an empty stomach, are tired, sick, upset, or have taken medicines or drugs.
and there's a dependency on body weight (though the real dependencies might include metabolic rate kcal-day and blood amount; of course body weight is slightly easier to measure. :-) )
There are also issues regarding molality (?); 1 mole of water is 18 gm, but one mole of ethyl alcohol (C2H5OH) is 46 grams.
Since 1 drink dissipates after several hours, one can compute a maximum intake and-or processing rate of about 17.74 milliliters alcohol per hour. If one wants more than that, complain to one's liver... ;-) *HIC*
ObLinux: No doubt a modified variant would make a dandy OS for the control part of a breathalyzer... :-)
