    My experience with absinthe came painfully. Two shots and other drinks and I couldn't even hold down a glass of water the next day. I know there a stronger forms of alcohol out there, but what is it about these and binge drinking in general

    2 shots is hardly binge drinking, its just unfortunate that absinthe is 199% proof.

    I thought I did the second to last time, however I beleive judging by the last time, a couple may have been blue aftershocks. Though it may depends on what else you drink, or if you light it, blow it up, the down it!

    I find it repulsive that some people force back the most disgusting alcohol just to get themselves pissed. I often feel sick just watching!! It's not necessary to drink disgusting unmixed shots of alcohol to get pissed ... but i suppose it's cheap.
