    Cambridge doesn't mean you are going to get the best jobs. I've seen Cambridge graduates lose in a job competition to a London Metropolitan Uni graduate, lol. Employers are hiring the students, not the uni.

    I had a decent amount to drink, but managed to stay just back from the dangerous point where I get drunk enough to stop noticing how much I'm drinking. 'Twas an excellent night!

    Thats an urban myth, the controversy over absinthe was because of the chemicals it contains, not because it was strong (it is usually strong, but not that strong, whisky can be stronger depending on the variety of each).

    EDIT - although I suppose thats not that unrealistic, whisky can go up to 80% itself, it completely depends on how much its diluted after distillation. But you get all these silly things about absinthe being some kind of 'ultra drink' and being 98% such. It tastes nice though.

    Spirits are at very high percentages when they are distilled. The percentage they're sold at is a marketing thing, which is why absinthe is sold so high compared to whisky - whisky has a 'standard' of 40%, but it can be made at about 80 by not diluting it after distilling it. I don't know if anyone sells it like that though. Its profitable to sell absinthe at top strength because of the mystique it has - but it was illegal and controversial because of the chemical thujone (later evidence showed that this was rarely present in any significant quantity) rather than because of its alcoholic content.

    I didnt think it was legal in england, a friend of myn got a bottle confiscated at customs (because over 50%)

    ITs overpriced i bought my stroh for 14 euro in germany!


    Yes wanderer is correct my uncle once bought 94% finsprit on the ferry to denmark its that high because its always diluted to make other drinks.
