No :oops:

I'd totally fail a field sobriety test until they gave me a breathalizer...funny, I've had one before, and they skipped straight to it, didn't bother with any of that balancing stuff you see on TV.

Off-topic--

""...funny, I've had one before, and they skipped straight to it, didn't bother with any of that balancing stuff you see on TV.""

Last time i got pulled over at a random checkpoint,
i rolled down my window, the cop just stuck his arm
into the car over the stearing wheel, waited two seconds,
someting said "biiip" and he said: "ok, you can go"
8O they have good equipment here these days,
the one he used just meizures the air in the cabin
and pick up traces of fumes.They also have a simple
spit test device that shows 90% of every drug there
is within a few minutes

How rude not to explain what he was doing and then apologise for stopping you :x

Not very well, I often have to go through the begining in my head to say what comes next.

I just tried it for the first time in I don't know how long. I got it perfect without any significant pauses until after "L". After "K", I got the rest perfect without any significant pauses. I'm darn proud of myself! I didn't think it would come to me so easily.

I don't see the point in saying the alphabet in any particular order, as long as all the letters are said once, once the problem ;)
