That's just what I thought.

A fine absinthe is the product of knowledge, craftsmanship, and talent. An exceptional absinthe is the product of those things plus obsession. Most absinthe is the product of marketing.

I remember him coming back and saying he was trying to distill absinthe, I wonder if he is still at it?

He's still at it. From what I understand, he even procured a quantity of Aa grown in the Pontarlier environs. Unfortunately, being a "genius" he's not particularly adept at learning from others. No incentive to trifle in the thoughts of those less enlightened than he is. He's more likely to reject a friendly suggestion as a threat than to embrace a good idea he hasn't come up with himself. Takes a big man to find pleasure in the kinds of obstacles in likes to place in his own path.

That complaint was a hoot. The first thing that had come up on his Google search was a Fee Verte post calling him a liar. He said it was a part of a plot by the Absinthe Mafia that infested this place to increase their market share by reducing his. He told Oxy that if it was not taken down, he would direct his programmers to ensure that future Google searches would yield a similar result for Oxy. A Google search today still finds the offending post, although it's dropped in rank a little. Nothing about Oxy being a liar as far as I could tell.
He went on to explain that distillation was nothing but a method of filtration that used boiling points rather than molecular size to separate compounds. I guess if filtration can't do what you think it does, you can always call another process filtration, and be right that way.

That's "filterated" a Kyle specialty.

"Create your own reality."

Fine with me… But isn't this by definition singular? To then spew on and on trying to convince others of your reality unravels the very nature of this catchy, and frankly in this case, self-damaging slogan.

This site goes to great length to over-explain his beliefs in a confusing manner that seems a bit defensive and desperate, with a goal of convincing us. I don't know this person, and have never had anything he's made other than the blended elements in the stuff Peter Fuss brought to the table at Absinthiades. It was impossible in these cases, to glean any indication of what his product added to the mix.

Perhaps I can present clients with stringless guitars, claiming that the strings are only one way of hearing the instrument, when one can both bang on it, and scream into the sound hole. It would still be a guitar, after all. One created from my own reality… So it must be good.

I

The man bent over his guitar,
A shearsman of sorts. The day was green.

They said, "You have a blue guitar,
You do not play things as they are."

The man replied, "Things as they are
Are changed upon the blue guitar."

And they said then, "But play, you must,
A tune beyond us, yet ourselves,

A tune upon the blue guitar
Of things exactly as they are."


from The Man with the Blue Guitar by Wallace Stevens

I have an older Craftsman bench grinder, it's a nice grinder, the switch is a heavy duty toggle with soldered terminals, arc-les make. I went out and found it had been on all night, worried about my mindlessness, I ran over to turn it off and found a small fire, and the switch was off. The switch had failed to be off in the off position, arced and started a fire. No damage! I put a new heavy duty toggle switch on it and it runs fine.

My Grandmother's house burned down because of a switch failure in a Mr. Coffee…

One might think I'd spend more time unplugging things than I do.

My daughter religiously unplugs everything, it seemed silly. An electrician told me that actual electrical fires are like unicorns, lots of stories about them, no evidence. He does not believe in them.
I've never seen this before and would not have predicted it.
