I don't really know. I was collecting some 'drinking ' quotes without digging too much.
This one refers to Wikipedia, but I rarely go there.

From Wikipedia: “In 1996, [Purdue engineering professor George] Goble was awarded the Ig Nobel Prize in Chemistry, for preparing a barbecue for cooking in less than 5 seconds by the use of a smoldering cigarette, charcoal and LOX (liquid oxygen). This act attracted the attention of the West Lafayette, Indiana fire department, which warned him to never let them catch him in the possession of LOX near a barbecue fire ever again."

I believe this is still the record.

I don;t remember who it was who said that he spent most of his money on drink and women, and the rest he wasted.

AJ, I can't say who said it, either. I heard something much like it from an old book (1944) citing a driller in the Eastland, TX oil patch.
