I don't think Dita would have ever said something so dumb. Stupid Rachel.

Wormwood is the ingredient in absinthe that makes it freaky deaky.

I get NY Magazine and saw that last week but refrained from putting it up here. There is something ten times worse and more stupid in an issue of Ad Age that I won't post either. Some shit is just not worth it.

Folks, the power of absinthe is due to it's high alcohol content and nothing more. Don't buy into the hoopla. Drinking absinthe is just a pretentious way of getting very drunk.

Exactly right. Where I live you can buy it and drink it in many bars, and the amounts of wormwood (artemisia absinthium) contained in ANY brand of absinthe on the market are far too low to have any hallucinogenic effect. Maybe in some bootleg stuff it still is very high.
Trust me, I`ve drunk some on several occasions and all you get is really drunk because it contains up to 60-70 percent of alcohol. Have a double dose of PERNOD or RICARD and you will have the same effect and a very similar taste. Absinthe is just a myth for wannabe bohemians and burlesque dancers.


That one is hilarious:

Man me and my friend got waaaasted on that piss one Halloween but there was nothing unique to the experience, other than just being wasted, and that was real Turkish Absinthe, not this "Mansinthe" garbage

You didn't know the real xit was coming from Turkey?

Hey, her name's Evan, and she's hangin' with Marilyn.

Are we absolutely sure she's a she? evill.gif

yeah, didn't you know that's enough to soak some wormwood stuff in a bottle of raki to get the real deal?

Or they liked her for her brain(s) but they've eaten it all, yet she still manages to walk around?

So it really isn't the tryptophan, but the t-jones that makes you so sleepy after eating a turkey? shock.gif

hahaha
Absomphe
After eating a turkey, I'd guess it's the sheer quantity of food that does the trick.

Make up your mind, how many brains does she have?

PTFA -- none left. (FWIW, "it" refered to brain matter).

Or they left the cerebellum intact and just ate the cortex; that's certainly consistent with observed behaviour. In that case, she still has a brain.
Absomphe
Only the cerebellum?

That would make her the perfect zombie, and it would certainly explain a lot.
Patlow
A lot of good actors are perfect zombies. And she's good too.
