It does not speak well for me that I got that without the footnote...

Anyway, what's the exchange rate between quaters and kwatloos*?

(* medium of exchange among the Gamesters of Triskillion, on an old Star Trek episode)

Or Erous, for that matter.

This chap could have lifted that, albeit somewhat inaccurately, from the Oxford University Chemistry Dept. Absinthe & Thujone webpage I rewrote for them last year.

I thought it might be a middle eastern country...

I thought the quater was the big line going around the earth...

What's a quater?

....A New Orleans chemist and biologist named Ted Breaux has spent several years studying absinthe and has recreated the recipe for Belle Epoch Pernod, aided in his research by a couple of scarce century-old bottles of the real thing. Breaux is reportedly soon to launch his own brand commercially, for distribution outside of the USA. This is eagerly awaited in some quaters.
