Seriously Crimo? Wasn't this something you learned in Health class in school?
Refresher:
Alcoholism (it only takes 21 days to create a habit)
Liver damage
Brain cell death (can you afford to lose any of those? Wink )

Not to mention if you get drunk enough some little men could kidnap you and take you to the middle of a tiny village, steal your clothes and leave you for the locals to find you.

None really.  Alcohol doesn't kill brain cells and cirhossis (liver damage/scarring) takes years to develop.  The biggest danger is simply social damage (friends/family/job), that and probably feeling like crap all the time due to hangover.

At least tell me you're not drinking the Baileys Chinese style, mixing it half and half with flavored water.

50 days of drunk, well I'm looking forward to the answers you'll provide during this time.

I beg to differ with tmestep8 above.  From the American Medical Association, verbatim:

It is not the brain cells themselves but the nerve connections between them (called dendrites) which are most affected by alcohol. The communication signals are inhibited, thus slowing down mental processing and the central nervous system. But the brain cells themselves bounce back with no damage for the most part. Long-term alcohol use, however, is another story. There is a body of research that shows that sustained alcohol consumption can and does cause irreversible neurological disorders.

Only 50 days crimo?  Just take one day a week and have a dry day to let the body recover, then continue....and all is good.  
A wise man once wrote a song that says "we are here for a good time, not a long time, so have a good time, the sun don't shine everyday".

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
