Just set up a system whereby if the amount of posting falls below a certain level then posts are randomly chosen from the archives and posted again. Then the forum would always be busy.

Pikkle, why are we even here? It's like being in the doldrums. Just about everyone else has disappeared. Either they're lurking like mad or they've jumped ship.

Stick around, and you'll end up being the forum's Ancient Mariner ... or perhaps its Johnny Cleese ("ALBATROSS!")

Words to live by, courtesy of the webzine "Transworld Skateboarding":

"....the best way to crack your ribs is to drink absinthe and bomb hills."

And bomb Hill's.

That graphic looks like it was ripped off from The Straight Dope. It's certainly in the style of that cartoonist. I'd love to find that entry.

Pikkle,

You shouldn't tar all Americans with having your level of obtuseness.

Jeagermeister is so God awful that even the Germans won't touch it. It's only because of the stupid US bar yuppies that the company stays afloat ;}

Valium, Opium, Stag's blood (virgin blood) - it's all the same.
I heard them all. Who would have guessed it was just fermented cabbage. (heard that one too)

Jägermeister is adding more weight to its Jägermeister Band Program. The herbal liqueur has just signed legendary heavy metal band, Slayer, to its roster of sponsored bands. Ha Ha...typical

Sin? hmmm.

No...

You're just the only the only one
who seems to think it has any significance.

am I the only one who noticed that the word SIN is in absinthe? I remember when I was a young buck, friends telling me Jagermeister has an opiate, which makes you really frisky. I didnt believe it of course.

From a webpage entitled "Strat's Place - Daniel Rogov":

"...some of the better known adherents of the liqueur in this century were Anais Nin...and Joseph Stalin.

Sipped through a perforated spoon...

Today, absinthe is once again available...in the United States...and even Israel."

Posted by someone called "Echoes" in the "Nikka Costa Forum", 2/24/2002:

"The lethal ingredient is wormwood, which has many hallucenogenic and psychological effects...

It is called green absinthe because when the liquid hits oxygen, a chemical reaction occurs and causes it to turn green...

Absinthe is illegal everywhere in the world, except the Czech Republic...A distiller just released a new alcohol called Absente, which tastes just like absinth...

I have a fascination of the drink and its history. I even have a green fairy holding an absinthe glass tattoed on my arms!"
