That's not proper Vodka anymore, real vodka is around 40%. That's homemade booze, which is typically around 80%, and not healthy to drink. And it does feel like someone fired a Ilwrath Avenger weapon down your throat.

It's actually a question of self.preservance, and one you might do well to heed young one. Of course, all alcohol is unhealthy, but when you get to the stuff over 70%, it can actually damage tissue in both your stomach and your throat if you drink it raw. Why do you think it burns? It's your body hurting...

This kind of alcohol isn't necessarily vodka though, it can have any base. Back when I lived in Ireland, they had this thing called... shine I think, which was basically homemade whiskey. Smeleld like whiskey, but was clear and around 85% That stuff was decidedly unhealthy.

if you really want to punish yourself, and i really DO NOT RECOMMEND THISis  to find some "everclear" 190 proof grain alcohol. this stuff will take the paint off most houses, no questions asked. its usually mixed into a blend of other alcohols, something to the effect of "pirates punch", or mixed with kool aid, frozen in ice tray, then eatin whole. but thats where the complications of alcohol poisoning stem from. too many kids haved gotten sick and/or died because of "everclear". so here in the good old usa, its been removed from sight. you have to ask for it by name. and of course show legal proof of age Wink

agian... I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS. but since we were talking about  the strong stuff, i thought id throw that in there.

My sis got a hold of some everclear once. Now, as stated before I don't drink, and neither does she. She needed it do distil the esence from herbs and evidently pure alchol is the way to go for that.

Other than practical value I don't think there's a use for everclear if all you're going to do is drink it.

Hi guys. Been awhile.
On the contrary, Everclear can do a few useful things.
1. Everclear can strip paint from most anything.
2. Everclear can melt low-grade plastic.
3. Everclear can strip grease off of any surface, provided it does not simply melt through the surface itself.
4. Everclear can kill brain cells at an alarming rate.

...and to a clone, according to Adolf Huxley, it can insure a lower grade human being when injected into the developing fetus. (Read "Brave New World".)

As for hair and pints, I've got enough/had enough for awhile. Break was enjoyable, but the loss of a step-grandfather made it a little more bitter than I would've liked.

Habaneros? Did I hear someone mention habaneros? Great stuff I say.

My friend regurarly brings habanero powder to school and we put some (a little amount) to the food, stir and then eat and drink a load of milk.

And what comes to alcohol drinks, I loath them. I see too many people drinking it and hear too many stupid events where alcohol is guilty.

And the whole stuff tastes bad!

Depends on the type of alcohol you drink. Some is yucky, some isn't. all down to personal reference. And as for what happens when under the influence... Well, some people can drink sensibly, some can't. just like soem people should never be allowed behind the wheel of a car, some should never be allowed close to a bottle.

This thread reminds me of a comical story that my high school chemistry teacher told our class about Everclear.

She said that she new a man that she went to collage with who took a research job with the military in Alaska. Every morning the men would have to thaw their water, and this was getting really old so he decided to fill his canteen with everclear knowing that it would not freeze. So the next day while every one was thawing their water he pulled out his Everclear and took a drink. Needless to say the everclear was still below -40F and froze a good part of his innards.  Don’t worry after a trip a hospital and some surgery he was fine.
