I guess we'll never know who can drink who under the table until I come to one of those Crackdown LANs, Curu. In the meantime, I'll try to keep my alcohol expenditure down from $200+/week in an effort to afford a plain ticket.

Now that's good stuff! Though last time I had that, I drank too much and now my stomach can't handle it, instant vomit-reaction or something...

It's a great way to get attention at bars, since melting the burning sugar into your drink does look cool. Opens up the conversation.

I still haven't tried absinthe considering it is outlawed in the US (well, outlawed doesn't matter, I'd do it anyway, it's just that it can't be found ).

Sounds good Shug, and if you can't make it to the Crackdown you could always come to Good Ole South Mississippi and just drink here. :twisted:

And what exactly would you choose, LR?


Tell yall what, one designated night we'll all meet with however many 1/5s of Everclear you think you can hold. ALl of us will commence drinking together so that no one gets trashed quicker or later than others. Hell, we could all be on Teamspeak.

Any takers?


BTW, The Creator, you are more than welcome to join... :twisted:

To my knowledge the real absinthe is outlawed just about everywhere in Europe except Spain. But the absinthe I've had wasn't illegal; It didn't have the hallusinogenic ingredients. This absinthe is sold in liquor stores. If it had the real wormwood stuff in it, it was in veeeery small quantities.

Grank thinks this sounds "cannabalistic", so take it as reading "As long as I get to choose what we're drinking, I can outdrink anyone here."

Which word in "As long as I get to choose what we're drinking" don't you understand, Curu? I'll be glad to send you a definition.

I just converted a fifth using an online tool, and it came out at about 750mLs... only about two people would be able to hold more than that. Depending on whatever the hell Everclear is, anyway.

Everclear = 180 proof

Pure Alcohol in the purest sense. As strong as moonshine and sometimes stronger than weaker moonshines. Though, i will admit I've drunk some moonshine before that was waaaay stronger than Everclear...

Cool, what did you do?

I work on labs too as a biotechnological engineer at Intevet, we produce antigene from GM bacteria so the docs at research can create vaccins for them.

Also, for alcohols we just use a % system, so I have no idea what 'proof' means. 70 and 98% are most commonly used here.

That would be 140 proof and 196 proof, respectively.

Drinking something over 100% proof is just too easy

If that's the case, if you drank that in ANY kind of tight time-frame you'd be pretty much floored.

And don't try telling me you did it in three hours one time because your mates probably drank the other half of the bottle after you got too drunk to remember where you put it.

Oh, and if it was 180 proof, there's nothing "wayyyy" stronger than it.
Virus - just double the alcohol percentage to get proof.

You're right Shug, I didn't drink it all in 3 hours. It was more like 5 or 6...
