I have seen blood results of .60 on 2 old classic alcoholics and they could walk and talk. If alcohol is consumed too fast, one can die regardless of the blood count. But if one drinks every hour of a day, the BAL may go up or down. But most of these chronic alcoholics need to keep a balance of .3 to function .
This article was and is not about alcoholics. It is about moonshiners and how clean of a cooking method Popcorn had.
You must have been drunk too! The official BAC Chart on the Effects of alcohol at different levels lists 0.40 as possible death; General Lack of Behavior; and Unconciousness! At 0.50 "DEATH"! So, your attemt to say some ol' drunks had a BAC of 0.60 is BS. Ethyl alcohol is a poison and will kill anyone at 0.50 no matter how clean it is supposed to be and I saw the video of Poopcorn's still and it was not clean!

I really hope you arent as ignorant as you appear. Just keep in mind where Popcorn sutton is now...he is dead! Illegal activities more than likely expedited his longevity. Dont be a fool and let the same happen to you.

Charles Manson is legendary too....being a legend doesnt make you honest or decent. why not glorify someone who makes a difference in someones life for the better, not to someone who destroyed people and their families.

He died from carbon monoxide. No alcohol poisoning. He was not going to let the feds take the remaining years he earned. So he took care of himself.

Records show Popcorn shot himself with a .38 or a .357 revolver.

Go smoke another Doobie.

He was only facing at most 18 months, probably would have served less than half that and as a "celebrity" and old fart, wasn't that old, early 60's, he would have gotten special treatment. He was a coward, a criminal and an A-Hole most of his life, good ridance!
