People don't know why they drive when they are drunk. When you are sober you think that you would not drive drunk. But when you are drunk, that's a different thing all together... You do stupid things when drunk.

The honest answer is that it's impossible to say. A drink/driving accident is defined as one in which one or more of the parties involved was above the limit. Proving whether alcohol was the sole cause or even a factor is difficult, sometimes impossible.

Not all that many; although being an atheist used to be a capital offence in England, not that many people were actually hung - largely because, obviously, people wouldn't say they were atheists. In general, atheists don't kill people because of their beliefs - it's hard to think of atheists flyi…ng airliners into buildings or starting a war because of beliefs; why would they? Answer: It depends on your definition of a "cause". No one has ever run around (to my knowledge) in an Atheistic Crusades saying "Be an atheist or die". However societies with Marxist (which is atheist in practice) or general atheistic philosophies have killed millions. Stalin's USSR, Mao Zedong of China, and Pol Pot in Cambodia are three examples.

how far south did the ice sheet stop in north America during the last ice age
with lots of alcohol about 90% I'm guessing but it depends if they have designated drivers and if some are pregnant... so their is no accurate answer....
A lot which is why you shouldn't do it. Or at least that's what the teachers here say!

Nobody died. The eruption wasnÂ´t that big. Actually, a couple of tourists died trying to go see the eruption, then got lost and froze to death.
VERY BAD. Do you know what would probably happen? The drunk driver could go to sleep while driving and kill theirself and other people. The drunk driver could go crazy and swirve all on the road and injure many innocent people. That's why they make sings that says dont drink and drive. Also the pers…on driving drunk could get life in prison or a big chunk of their life in prison. (MORE)

It is not illegal to drive people who are drunk. In fact it is the best thing to do for a person who is drunk instead of letting the person drive his or her own vehicle while drunk. That is why "designated drivers" are important.
13 deaths from infected heroin in the past year. Heroin was being contaminated with anthrax. Anthrax-related heroin deaths are extremely rare, and in the past were unheard of in the UK. There has been only one known previous outbreak among heroin users, and that took place in Norway in 2000.
None. The figures quoted are generated by a GIGO computer model. If you built similar models to 'guestimate' the number of people 'dying from' obesity, alcohol abuse, traffic pollution, industrial pollution, workplace pollution, domestic pollution, drug abuse, climate change, food additives, stress…, etc. and added them altogether, mankind would have died out decades ago!

There is actually no particular number. I read a study from Manhattan Engineer District saying that 66,000 died. The reason no one really knows, is because no one knows the exact population of Hiroshima. Most do believe that the atomic bomb killed around 25% of the population.

It is not really possible to know how many vehicle accidents are caused by drunk driving. A person could make an educated guess, but never know for sure how accurate it was. In order to do this, you would have to find out have many accidents are actually caused by a drunk driver and how many are cau…sed by a sober driver. Remember, a lot of vehicle accidents do involve a drunk driver, but they are all not necessarily all caused by them. (MORE)

Explain to them how by driving drunk not only are they endangering themselves but others around them. Tell them that that person could be you.
