And LSU dropped out of the Top 10 Party Schools list?

The death last Friday of an LSU student has been confirmed to be "alcohol related," according to a story in The Advocate (the Baton Rouge daily, not the national gay newspaper) today.

By "alchohol related", they mean that the kid had a blood alcohol level of 0.43. For perspective, a blood alcohol level of 0.08 gets you arrested for DWI, 0.30 is considered toxic and police breathalyzers only go up to 0.395.

According to the story, 19-year-old Corey James Domingue spent last Thursday night at his Tigerland apartment with his best friends - six other students and as assload of rum. The group was "studying for a test," police were told.

Ironically, Domingue was not only a Cajun, but also a chemical engineering major, meaning he should have known plenty about alcohol and its effect on the body.

Domingue also failed to set a new mark for the highest blood-alcohol level recorded by an LSU student. That title is still held by then-fratboy-pledge Benjamin Wynne, whose alcohol level was measured - in the morgue - at 0.588 after being forced to drink 25 - 30 drinks in an hour.
