    Well, not drunk as in drunk like as if you'd had too much alcohol.

    It can kill you if you drink too much water, however.

  2. NO

  3. Never.

  4. wow, a lot of people with the same info -_-

    anyway, No, but as everyone else said.. you CAN die..

    the proof for this is.. There was a contest.. a drinking water contest to win a Wii.

    Some lady died.. Look it up, if youre interested.

  5. are you an idiot?

  6. No but you can kill yourself.

  7. no but you might puke

  8. Never

  9. hahahahahahaha,a pissed of fish,hilarious!!!!!!!!hahahahahlol

  10. NO. But....its a proven fact that you can actually die from consuming too much water

  11. no, the reason you get drunk is becouse the alcohol interacts with the neurons in your brain affecting the signals they rescive. this is the reason your reactions are slowed as it take a bigger build up of neuro chemicals to trigger a electronic response to pass the message onto the next neuron.

  12. No you cant but you can die from it.

    Drinking 12 oz. every 15 minutes for a few hours can kill you.

  13. You cannot get drunk. You can get water toxicity, though.

    Whenever you disregard your sense of thirst and strive to ingest several glasses of water a day just because you have been told that doing so is good for your health, you actually put unnecessary strain on your body in two major ways:

    Ingesting more water than you need can increase your total blood volume. And since your blood volume exists within a closed system - your blood circulatory system - needlessly increasing your blood volume on a regular basis puts unnecessary burden on your heart and blood vessels.

    Your kidneys must work overtime to filter excess water out of your blood circulatory system. Your kidneys are not the equivalent of a pair of plumbing pipes whereby the more water you flush through your kidneys, the cleaner they become; rather, the filtration system that exists in your kidneys is composed in part by a series of specialized capillary beds called glomeruli. Your glomeruli can get damaged by unnecessary wear and tear over time, and drowning your system with large amounts of water is one of many potential causes of said damage.

  14. There is a phenomenon called "water intoxication" that can occur if you are drinking too much water while exercising.  It is caused by electrolite imbalance and can result in death.  The person can go through a state of disorientation and nausea similar to alcohol intoxication but they are quite different.

  15. No, but you can get water-logged. :P And if you drink way too much water, you can die.

  16. no no no no no. try alcohol!

  17. No but you can drown by filling up your lungs with too much water.

  18. Drinking Water Excessively

    more about Drinking Water Excessively  

    Polydipsia, excessive thirst

    Excessive drinking of water and excessive thirst, fairly common symptoms, are often reactions to fluid lost during exercise, excessive sweating (excessive loss of salt and water), or excessive salt intake.

    Other causes may be more serious, such as uncontrolled Diabetes Mellitus, Diabetes Insipidus, drug-induced Dehydration (e.g., from diuretics, demeclocycline), as a result of blood and fluid loss in burn victims, due to Sepsis, and as a result of psychiatric illness (psychogenic Polydipsia) as seen in schizophrenics.

    Maybe you should make an appontment with your doctor to make sure that there is nothing wrong with you, hope you are well

  19. I am sorry but what a stupid question,have you ever seen a pissed fish?

  20. i think it can make osmosis in your cells, making the water and sugar go out of balance, and making your cells swell up and perhaps burst! scary!

  21. Drinking too much water in a short amount of time is called hyperhydration or water intoxication (not to be confused with alcohol intoxication). The symptoms can be similar: light-headedness, sometimes accompanied by nausea, vomiting, headache.

    As with alcohol poisoning, the progression from mild to severe symptoms may occur rapidly as the water continues to enter the body from the intestines or intravenously.

  22. No, why where you looking for a cheep buzz?!?!?!   :/

  23. No, but you can die through electrolyte imbalance ;)
