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.

Kopparberg kicks ass! Rekorderlig is another of my favorite brands.

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.

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.

Two people in my area died this year from drinking this sort of crap. One guy died from mouthwash, and the other died from drinking this stuff. You might as well drink formaldehyde you'd die faster. Please don't drink this stuff. PLEASE DO NOT DO IT.

mmmm, salmiakki. It's like drinking the insides of a Good N' Plenty.

Also, drink just a little too much and it will make you green as a frog and nauseous, and your poops unbelievably smelly.

But until that point, it's aaaaawesome.

To all that doesn't know the aquavit that Norway has, it is called "Linje aquavit". Linje means line and the line they are referring to, is the equatorial line. The reason for this, is because the aquavit is transported on ships over the equatorial line twice during its maturing. You could make a case of environmental harm due to pointless travel, but the company insist that the sea maturing gives it its unique taste.
