Everybody drinks less than me! A lot less.
A true police story from the town where I live:

I read this note in the newspaper about a guy that had become violent in a pub after drinking about 25 half-liters of lager. My immediate thought was: Is that possible?

One of my friends is the son of a policeman. When I mentioned my doubts to my friend, he could tell that at the police station, they had similar doubts. However, a few of those guys are world class beer drinkers; one of them insisted that "25 half liters in a night? Of course!" The others told him to prove it on his next night off; if he couldn't do it, he would have to pay for all the beer he drank, if he succeeded, the other guys would share the bill.

Here comes what makes the story worth telling: He did pour down 25 half liters, but that is not what impressed the most. The really impressing part was that he did 16 of them before going to the bathroom for the first time.
