Mike from Alandia posted this video on facebook. They drip absinthe from a fountain and then set it on fire. I don't understand German, but hopefully they are saying, "this is not the way to do it!".

Sadly, they aren't. She knows next to nothing and he is her "mentor."

How many times can you mention Toulouse-Lautrec in one conversation?

Sadly, they do this in the States, too.

I went to a really nice fondue restaurant last weekend. Had good fondue in good company. As we walked in, I noticed an absinthe fountain on the bar, with a bit of green/blue in it and a bottle of LTV on the shelf behind. Perusing their spirits selection the only absinthe they had listed was the LTV.

I did not see any preparation, but I can only imagine what they were doing with that absinthe in that fountain.

They also had some absolutely horrendous mixed drink called an "absinthetini" featuring LTV, cointreau, amaretto, and a few other things. It sorta looked like a kitchen-sink variety of drink, both in terms of what went into it AND where you wanted to put it after tasting some.

Hmmm…green ice water. What'll they think of next over in the Fatherland?

This is the wave of the future.
Absinthe-Midori swizzles with a dash of Chambord and an insulin back. Get on board or get left behind.

That actor played the lead in the mediocre (and by mediocre, I mean way better than that cinematic piece of fetid dogshit, Flyboys) German movie The Red Baron (2008).

During a brief scene in a chateau/brothel, you can clearly see an (empty) absinthe fountain on the table, but it looks like most of the characters are drinking champagne. Apparently even the Germans think cheep champagne tastes better than burnt La Fee.

They probably had Elixier on the movie set before deciding it wasn't even appropriate as a prop. The actor then thought he was doing a service by introducing the Frau to La Fee instead.

Sometimes it takes many small steps to accomplish … nothing.

Fixed.

The gulf between Elixier and (even) La Fee is vast, wide, and deep.

Like the difference between a woman being pregnant or just a little bit pregnant?

More like the difference between a woman being pregnant or just eating too much squirrel and shitting out wooden tokens.
Guess which is which.

Oh let the college kids have their fun. If it can't make them go from zero to plastered in .0000001 seconds it's not interesting to them.
