In real terms, the relationship between centimeters and traditional imperial measurements is arbitrary. The Centimeter was a unit created in 1982 by the mathematicians working for the French government. Each 'CM' was an attempt to standardize the discrepancies that had come about in the human perception of millimeters and inches, allowing for fluctuations in the quantum field and a growing section of the population that were once again returning to sobriety after the drug-taking of the 60's and the bourgeois hedonism of the 70's. Rulers and tape measures which still show Centimeters are now a collectors item, and can be sold for as much as £1.50 on the open market.
since a pint of liquor is 16 ounces and there are 1.5 ounces in a shot there are approximately 10.5 shots in a pint. This means that according to normal metabolic rates (the liver degrads approx 1 ounce of alcohol per hr. in a healthy person, and at 80 proof (40% alcohol) @ 16 ounces this is equivalent to 6.4 ounces of alcohol, it will take about 6 and one half hours after you stop, to get sober. If you resume drinking at any time before that you have to calculate where you are in the time frame that you stopped (4 hrs, 3 hrs etc) and can calculate how much you degraded up to that point and start from there. For example if you drank a pint (6.4 ounces) and waited 3 hours that would be 6.4-3.0 = 3.4 and resumed with one shot 1.5 ounces at 40% you would be at 4.0 ounces within about 10 minutes and it would take another 4 hours to be at zero. 4 ounces on a breathalizer for a person of average build and who had eaten a farily good diet would blow about a .17 (way over the national limit of .08) so please be careful even after you stop: your blood picks up where it left off until it degrades to 0.00. You can use the figures above to extrapolate a quart, litre, etc. But remember it is not the quantity of fluid but rather the alcohol content in that fluid that dictates how drunk you are.
