Math Problem For Today

Mildred is at a party, drinking a 16-ounce glass of orange juice mixed with 1 ounce of 140-proof liquor. Assuming she consumes half the beverage in 20 minutes, and the remaining half in the 20 minutes after that, how many times will she sing the theme to "COPS" before waking up in a cheap motel with two truck drivers?

I doubt she'll even make it throught the first rendition.

Given the information, I think she will be singing JOY TO THE WORLD... twice. But that's cuz she's Mildred.

GigglePixie: Maybe if she sings really fast....

CarolG: Here's hoping the truck drivers don't let her down.

One shot is all it takes? Mildred is a cheap date. Do you have her number?
Oh wait, 140 proof. That's like 2 drinks, so using the coefficient of the variable X, times, of course, the standard deviation of the relative viscosity of the orange juice plus or minus the number of clean towels in the motel room, I would say 3. And I still would like her phone number.

Mildred's lack of alcohol tolerance indicates she won't remember a thing and will have to repeat the night's events making sure to get photographic evidence.

DaOldMan: Well, the towels aren't all that clean...

Jamie: So then there will need to be three truck drivers. The third one will take the pictures.
