    I have never tried Absinthe but I know many people who have and apparently they quite enjoy the experiences.

    As far as I know Absinthe is illegal in the U.S. and must be smuggled into the country.
    I believe that religion, generally speaking, has been a curse to mankind - that its modest and greatly overestimated services on the ethical side have been more than overcome by the damage it has done to clear and honest thinking.

    ...that no discovery of fact, however trivial, can be wholly useless to the race, and that no trumpeting of falsehood, however virtuous in intent, can be anything but vicious.

    ...that all government is evil, in that all government must necessarily make war upon liberty...

    ...that the evidence for immortality is no better than the evidence of witches, and deserves no more respect.

    ...in the complete freedom of thought and speech...

    ...in the capacity of man to conquer his world, and to find out what it is made of, and how it is run.

    ...in the reality of progress.

    I - But the whole thing, after all, may be put very simply. I believe that it is better to tell the truth than to lie...to be free than to be a slave...to know than be ignorant.

    AW: Absinthe

    Mmmmh... I don't hate it and I don't love it. It's too hardcore to drink it every weekend, but 1 or 2 times in the year... Why not?

    I prefer good old Met, Beer, Rum and Whiskey!

    Absinthe & Alchemy

    Writers have often accessed a level of visionary experience beyond that of everyday consciousness, but what happens when that vision, fuelled by occultism, alcohol and a nervous breakdown, begins to cross over into madness. GARY LACHMAN examines the case of August Strindberg.

    Absinthe

    Alaf Sal Runa!
    I've been enjoying Absenthe for around 6 years now. I love the ritual in preparing this amazing drink and I like the effects. The Thujone effect is unlike anything you'll find in drinking mead, ale, or beer. I find meditating on the runes after drinking absenthe to be surreal. Do any others on this list drink Absenthe?

    You're drinking pure wormwood, which is a posion, incidently.
    Nah. I prefer Liqueur, rum, vodka and Scnapps (SP?).

    I have never drunk absinthe. I had a buddy drink a bunch of it one night, it was 70% and had lots of that wormwood in it. Well he started having mild hallucinations for about 20 mins on it. If you get certain brands they have hallucinogenic and major psychoactive properties to them much different than most alcohol.

    It's also used in medicine. Absinthe isn't going to hurt anyone. Pure oxygen is toxic as well; that doesn't mean you shouldn't breathe.
