either you're lying, or he is. you can't get drunk for 2 days from absinthe.

the people in the drug thread know lots about it. i was there when it came up one time.

apparently its nothing like what its like in eurotrip, instead its just like a really strong alcohol. it'll mess you up, but you wont hallucinate or anything.

It's basically alcohol with wormwood in it. Wormwood apparently has some psychidellic qualities, but I have never tried it so I dont know.

Actually absinthe is a much cleaner drunken state than any other alchohol. It's extremely strong, but the effects of it are way different feeling. It doesn't impair your thinking as much for one thing, and it doesn't last longer than any other alchohol. So your friend was lying. Absinthe doesn't slow down the liver process.

It doesn't slow down the liver process, meaning it gets metabolised just as quickly as every other alcohol. It's right around vodka in alcohol percent I think.
OH NOES! My sig is gone.
#18
so vodka's around 70%?

alright to clean things up for me. what does the percent represent?

and what are the percents for like rum, vodka, beer, tequila, etc. if those make any sense with the % question.

I mean the liver is going to get rid of alchohol at the same rate no matter what you drink, absinthe isn't going to be any different from any other alchoholic drink in terms of length of drunkenness. However generally Absinthe will you get you drunk faster because of it's extremely high alchohol content (Usually 65-85% by volume). Most other hard liquors are around 50% or so, as a general rule of thumb.

Rum, whiskey, vodka, cognac, etc.... If you don't know what the hard liquors are you are too young to drink them.

It might just be my constitution, but I took two shots and then drank a swig straight from the bottle of 75% Alchohol content Absinthe and didn't get drunk at all. Really there's a bit too much fear around Absinthe, it's just like any other hard liquor but slightly more potent and gives you a cleaner buzz. And if you do it right, with a specific kind, and drink so much you nearly pass out, then there's a slight chance of hallucinations.

Ah the joy of the misinformation illegalizing drugs leads to.

Just know your bodies folks.

Edit: The % is the amount, out of 100, of pure alchohol there is in the drink. Higher % (Percentage) there is, the stronger it is, the faster you will get drunk. Really it's just 2nd grade math bro

The nerfed stuff is legal in Australia. But apparently the legal stuff will just get you smashed really fast, won't be a Hallucenogenic or anything. (If I spelt that right)
if you have belief in ur soul and jesus you can do anything
#27
You cannot get it in the US it is illegal here...
Its 70% and has Wormwood and with that percent no wonder they says you hallucinate...
But you gotta go outta the country to get it unless you find someone who has smuggled it here....but thats unlikely

It's alright. It tastes like black licorice, and burns on the way down (worse than room-temp vodka). It is a different drunk, a clearer f'ed up, but still f'ed up. No hallucinations, and I got the stuff straight from Scotland. It just gets you drunk quick.

After the first few shots the taste isn't as bad anymore.

alright, i dont know if anyone has said this yet, i couldnt be stuffed to read all the posts...but absinthe is supposed to be pretty lethal. if you drink alot of it on a regular basis, its supposed to drive you INSANE.


but who cares about that. its green! yeah i like it already.

70% for vodka, thats a bit f*ckin extreme. your average shelf spirits from the bottle store range from 37 to 44. beer's usually between 4-5 for normal and 8-12 for elephant beer.

my uncle has a bottle of 89% absinthe that comes in a bottle that looks like a sambuca bottle. he can handle it, he'll have a 40 oz of whiskey before a party starts, and finish another before it ends, and still be standing, horendously incoherent but still standing

And to CanadaHckyDude, if you have to ask those questions, you should really get out more. Or at least talk to people.

If I were you I wouldn't drink it.
last time I had any I was literally throwing up for almost 12 hours straight.
to be fair it was mixed with vodka
My sister has a video of me after that. that video would put you off of it.

Maybe you have an allergic reaction to it or something? I've never heard of any REAL negative side effects from drinking it.


I don't see how mixing it with vodka would change anything.


I have a video of a friend who goes friggin' nuts after drinking like.. 2 shots of vodka. He turns all red and laughs like a ****ing lunatic, then has a nose bleed.

No vodkas about 40%. Absinthe is about 60% usually... Anyone that tells you they hallicinated is full of shit, you will get very drunk very quickly but you will NOT hallucinate, unless it has the full illegal concentration of the chemical in the wormwood in it, which is illegal. It has a very distinctive taste, me and my mate went through a whole bottle in a few hours, we diddnt pass out, but we were preety drunk, hangover wasnt too bad....

The traditional method for consuming it is place a sugar cube on a special slotted spoon over a glass. you then pour some absinthe on the sugar and light it on fire and let the sugar caramelise..... you then drink it how you like.... We did this for a while then drank the rest neat....

I thought you were supposed to pour the absinthe into the glass, then ice water over the sugar cube on the slotted spoon, until the water is at a 1:1 ratio with the absinthe?

I don't see why the yanks hold it in such a mythical position.

It's just a spirit, much like any other. It goes from 40 to over 70%, just like any vodka or whisky.

It tastes like shite, just like any other shooter.

Aside from that it's just alcohol, it does nothing else and if you believed one word in the horribly racist eurotrip you're a fool.
