A little side note on Absinthe:
The real stuff is completely illegal in Canada, but the rules in US are a little more weird - as I remember, it's legal to buy and import, but not to consume.
The reason I know this is there's a company called Sebor Absinthe which claims to have the highest percentage of wormwood in it, and is supposed to be the best shit out there. I was trying to figure out how to obtain some of that stuff, and it looked like I got a break when we went to Spain this summer - I had it shipped to a hotel we were for a few days at. Unfortunately, it took too long to get there, so I was never able to pick it up. As I speak, some dirty Spanish hotel staff is probably enjoying my 30 bucks worth of Absinthe.
I'm the trouble starter, fuckin' instigator.
I'm the fear-addicted, danger illustrated.
