Don't be silly. Honest, reputable businesses in New Orleans are eager for...how do the Americans say... psychoactive-ballztripperz, to add spice to the competition.

Indeed... In their "Absinthe links" section they link to... Well, All Alandia related sites there is. And on one of them there's this wonderfully accurate information.

Asides from alcohol absinthe contains a number of different psychoactive substances. Among these thujon is of major importance, a substance released by the wormwood plant, known under the name artemisia absinthium. The effects of real absinthe can be mood brightening, stimulating even euphorizing.

They actually mentioned the tests that showed vintage absinthe had low t-jone levels, and then compared those levels to the levels in the "bitter spirits". Hmm, so the czech brands really are the closest thing to vintage. Here you have been battling ignorance all this time and it turns out Alandia was right all along. Yeah right.

If they can make up history, they may as well make up words, too. I'm surprised I haven't heard that one before, since the high school I attended was full of pothead rednecks.

The worst kind.

Which is the worst kind: rednecks who are potheads or potheads who are rednecks?
Absomphe
I don't know, which is heavier, a pound of feathers, or a pound of lead?
