Proper ratio of beer:tuned ski?
I've been working on skis all weekend. Yesterday, I did 3 freehand NTN mount, and 1 alpine mount. Today (so far) I have tuned & waxed 4 pair, and have 2 to go.
I've been drinking beer the whole time. I have yet to feel any kind of buzz. I should also mention I also did paint all the trim on my garage, so I've even been getting some paint fumes.
What am I doing wrong? Do I need to make an offering (non naked) to Ullr? I think I'm doing something wrong. I should be wrecked by now.

Up the ABV and/or pepper your alcohol consumption with pulls off a bottle of whisky.Life is tough. It's even tougher if you're stupid.

Obviously, when doing technical work on something important like a ski, or of lesser importance like your garage, you want to maintain a BAC well above the legal limit for operating a motor vehicle, but well below the limit where you black out (well, maybe toward the end of the night). So, the (relatively pussy) legal limit for driving a car is 0.08, which is 4 drinks. A typical adult processes 1 drink per hour. So, that's your baseline. You've probably just been drinking too slowly, because it's hard to drink fast when you're busy with your hands. As mentioned above, supplement with whiskey.
EDIT: Wrote BCA instead of BAC when writing about gear. I must be right about in the correct place to begin rebuilding my front 29er wheel.

When push comes to shove, my preference is to be stoned to the bejeezus belt rather than drunk. But that goes without saying.

Its a combo of being stoned and drunk. Not so stoned that you fall asleep, not so drunk that you have the spins. That perfect medium. For me its one bowl per four drinksBest Skier on the Mountain

Still not drunk, but done tuning...for today. 6 full hand tunes/waxes today. Still 5 to go, and at least 2 more mounts.
I can't drink whiskey...long story, but suffice to say that it will never happen again. I don't smoke up -- I work in pharma, so the drug testing is a little to prevalent.
I figured it out - I need a third arm...

I must be losing it. Don't know how I forgot about getting stoned. But seriously dude, you need to get over that whisky drinkin problem. Drinking whisky is a very important life skill. Just push through the pain until you start liking it. If you need training wheels you can drink bacon flavored whisky until you are able to drink and enjoy it without all the bacon.Life is tough. It's even tougher if you're stupid.

Jameson's not bad. Personally, I prefer a good kentucky bourbon or a single malt scotch over an irish whisky though. Here's what I recommend you do.
1. Buy a bottle of Maker's Mark and a package of thick sliced applewood smoked bacon.
2. Cook bacon.
3. Put cooked bacon in a large jar.
4. Pour whisky into bacon filled jar. Cap.
5. After a week, strain whisky into new container.
6. Drink whisky(it'll taste like bacon). Eat bacon(it'll taste like whisky).Life is tough. It's even tougher if you're stupid.

1 beer+1 bong rip...repeat till 3 beers/3 bong cycles have been completed, then switch to 1 bong rip per 2 beer. That should get you thereIf it's green, smoke it...if it's pink, poke it

A similar recipe to my Bacon Porter only I substitute high quality vodka for the whiskey. Added the liquid back to the fermented beer before bottling, turned out ok, use a fine filter like a coffee filter.
BTW, you are slacking on alkeyhol consumption during binding mounting process.
Step it up!

the easy way to do it is 2 beers before you start, then 1 beer per ski. 4 mounts = 8 skis= 8 beers. if you're any good at mounting this ratio should keep you in the "nice" zone the entire time, and if you're too good, it will slow you down enough as you continue
the same ratio works for waxing skis, which is quicker, but requires less thought, so still proportional
