Etoh & death: If you drink a sufficiently large amount of alcohol you will eventually become unconscious and "blank out". Of course, before you actually black out you may have engaged in some outrageous foolish activity which could lead to your demise. Alcohol is not a good anesthetic but it does screw up your thinking and memory.
