    If it was real absinthe, i.e. from the continent, not bought in the UK... then it was just the absinthe, nothing to do with the flames. Lighting shots is just for show, it has no effect (actually burns off some of the alcohol). "Real" absinthe contains stuff that can make you a bit loopy, yes. I remember drinking a fair load of it in one night in my teens, ended up wandering the streets muttering to myself... collecting random stones and sticks off the ground that I though were "significant". HAHAHA. Then I sat on someone's windowsill and puked for a while. I woke up the next day wondering why the **** my pockets were full of stones and twigs.
    Sounds like a good night to me

    It tastes like you died and went to hell

    Depends where you get it from though- if its from a club, I think alot of the time its watered down or the weak stuff. In which case it burns your mouth a bit and tastes a bit like aniseed.

    If its the proper stuff, ie the 70%+ stuff it smells like nail varnish remover and tastes just as bad, no flavour, just really yucky.
    The spanish 75% stuff makes you cough and choke after a shot. It's hard to breathe after having a shot of it until it fully goes down and you can feel it burning all the way down to your stomach.

    Pretty intense stuff :rolleyes:

    The first time I drank absinthe, I was at a friends house. At some point during the night my friend came outside to find me sitting in his garden. He asked "What are you doing outside?" To which I replied, "I didn't want to get mud in the house."

    lol.

    There's a drink in Eastern Europe (at least in Hungary) known as Pálinka (at least in Hungarian :p:). I had some home made stuff that evaporated before it hit my throat.

    I was impressed

    iv had palinka. my friends boyfriend was romanian and he used to bring it back with him whenever he'd go over to romania for a holiday. im good with shots, i dont really taste it, just feel it after! lol

    Ewww, I don't know why people would want to drink that! I have a very low percentage/taste level I can cope with
