I used to be a connoisseur. The night I experienced the best LIIT(s) I've ever had was also the night I ended up making out with a girl on a second date for over an hour in the middle of a pretty nice restaurant. It is a very dangerous drink.

Drinking 40% shots gets you buzzed in a while so if you start with shots, it kicks in half an hour later and by the time you feel it, you'll be all good and not drinking much more.

Drinking beers will get you buzzed as you drink because nobody kicks back beers quicker than the effects so having beers first, getting buzzed and then deciding "I'm not too bad, let's take shots" will get you over the edge long before the last of the shots kicks in.

Guess that works for me maybe that logic only makes sense to me and my friends, but who knows, everybody's got their methods of knowing their personal limits.
Not true. You should see my brother kick back beers. At an uncle's buck'n'doe, he knocked back about 6 beers in half an hour. But on the ride home I had to pull over to let him throw up .

Absinthe sold here in the US isn't real Absinthe as it doesn't contain the herb wormwood which is said to give off a hallucinogenic effect. Thujone which is the acitve ingredient found in wormwood is banned by the FDA for use in food. It isn't illegal to own and consume real Absinthe (containing wormwood) for personal use in the US but it is illegal to sell it. If you plan on buying real Absinthe, there are a few websites that do sell them and are willing to ship it to the US. Check your local state liquor laws regarding the importation of alchol before attempting to purchase real Absinthe as it can be confiscated by customs .

well i mean I live in canada. Theres laws in Ontario that u can have 10 mg/kg thujone in the absinthe, but thats not enough , and i dont know where to look for importation laws to see if it will get confiscated. But i really want to try some of the "real" absinthe.

Ok i just read somewhere that apparantly its NOT illegal to buy small amounts (one case or less) of absinthe for personal drinking use. it cannot be sold however, it must be personally consumed. Im just wondering now where to buy it, theres a few sites online but they have amazingly high shipping prices (but then again its out of the country) and im not sure what stuff to buy. Any suggestions?

Yes it is costly to purchase Absinthe from online sites located in the UK or Geramany as that's where all of the real Absinthe are legal for sale. Some of them have up to the maximum amount of wormwood allowed by the European Union which is 35 mg and with a alcohol proof rating anywhere from 120 to 190 proof.

If you are just talking liquor, my usual list is jack&coke, tequila, whiskey sour, or a white russian. Jager bombs are wonderful, but can cause drunken emailing to ex girlfriends if enough are imbibed.

Don't ask... ;-)
