Yes, former frat boy, you drank and partied like it was 1999, unironically, when it really was 1999, and you got, like, so wasted. But you have nothing on Vidmantas Sungaila, 41, of Lithuania, in terms of your ability to hold your liquor or even in the number of syllables in your first and last names. Sungaila got pulled over by the Lithuanian cops recently for driving his truck down the middle of a two-lane road. After testing him for alcohol in his blood, cops found that Sungaila not only was drunk, he should have been dead, as he registered more than twice the lethal level of alcohol in his blood, 7.3 grams per liter (pretend you’re Jim Jones and do your own conversions). Sungaila drew an $1100 fine for the infraction and could lose his license for up to three years. Lithuania, by the way, has one of Europe’s worst drunk-driving problems, with 760 deaths in 2005 against a population of 3.5 million.
