Let's Party


You do not understand how much I love Kopparberg.

On The Faroe Islands it's a bit of a problem that alcoholics steal hand sanitizer and drink it. They do it because alcohol for drinking is so damn expensive on the islands. How they are not all dead is one of life's great mysteries.

Because ethanol is ethanol in any package.
During prohibition in USSR people managed to extract it from most surprising sources: shoe wax, phenolic glue, wood finishing compounds, brake fluid. Electronic engineers and medical personnel were among the best people to be friends with, since they had access to large amounts of 95% ethanol by necessity. Perfume was considered by some to be almost a soft drink. In post-Soviet Russia to avoid paying excise taxes some people just sold "window cleaning solution" which consisted of 95% ethanol (more or less pure), 5% water with some coloring agent, various tinctures sold at pharmacies became very popular.
German V-2 rocket used potato alcohol as fuel, heavy drinking was a problem at Peenemünde, I bet that same happened when V-2 derivatives were developed in USSR. Also, drinking literal rocket fuel is so metal.
Most of those who died drinking this did so either because of liver damage or when someone would cut non-drinking alcohol with methanol. Hence the joke that ends on "one more round, guys, and I'm going home - it's getting dark too soon today".

Abusing hand sanitizer is an amateur hour.

Hi Canadian here, got a friend who works at the hospital eh and I can give you the rundown cause they have a couple of native guys who pull this stunt weekly: if you drink hand sanitizer they(hospital) have to flush your system with actual alcohol to keep it from harming your liver, you looking at a good 36 hour drunk from this. Alternatively you can drink it in small doses and suffer internal trauma but not die.

Now this was some time ago, but I remember how this was a thing at my high school and how we even had a school assembly on why not to drink hand-sanitizer.

The most shocking thing in this, Finland said something, using words, not just waving of his knife.

@bluesamurai: No, your beer tastes like having sex in a canoe, as it's fucking close to water.

Then go find a place where you don't have to be. This site has rules, and those who don't follow them will naturally face the consequences.
