Steve Townsend  asked the Naked Scientists:
   Not that I have any intention of doing this - but if I bathed in vodka, would it get me drunk?

Steve
What do you think?

I shall carry out an experiment on your behalf, forthwith.

Kindly forward sufficient bottles of the said liquor (and an alcohol proof rubber duck) for the purpose.

I heard of an employee in a brewery who fell into a vat. He drowned, but only after he had climbed out three times for a pee.

I guess you could absorb quite a lot of ethanol through your skin and also inhale a significant amount. It would be more effective if the bath had been warmed up to a comfortable temperature.

Not to put too fine a poimt on it, I think it would sting too much for you to stay in there for long enough to absorb much alcohol.

It definitely would if you were to try breathing submerged  :D

A certain part of me winced, involuntarily when I read that.

would anyone actually have enough money to buy enough vodka to have a whole bath full... if not it's a bit pointless asking that question.

This would work - probably way too well - if you were an amphibian.

Does it only have to be vodka? What about a good old Heineken? :)

I was thinking about weather or not that could be dangerous given your skins ability to absorb ....wouldn't that possibly pose a serious problem if one stayed immersed in said vodka... could it actually be dangerous and go beyond drunkenness? how much alcohol can your body absorb per hour being submerged in such a hard potent substance?

The fumes from the Smirnoff bath may be sufficient to cause intoxication ...

Quote
NEW YORK - There's a new low-calorie, low-carbohydrate way for adults to consume alcohol in The United States, and you don't even need a glass. It's AWOL, Alcohol With Out Liquid, and for the first time, it is available in The United States after successful debuts in Europe and Asia.

AWOL consists of two components: an oxygen generator and a hand-held vaporizer. Tubes from the generator attach to the vaporizer. The user chooses an 80-proof spirit, which is poured into the vaporizer. Oxygen mixes with the alcohol producing a mist which is inhaled through the mouth.

I hope they banned smoking in that bar.

Sorry, i have to appologise for saying that your question was pointless as no one would have enough money spare to fill a bath with vodka... bill and gates.
