    On vodka,
    IMO, vodka is sicknasty unless you get potato vodka...but that's just my Prussian blood talking ;D. My favs are Wodka Wyborowa (can't get it in the US AFAIK), and Monopolowa, which is about $15 for a 750ml bottle. You can drink the stuff straight and its delicious.
    Agree on the tequila. Living in the Southwest, I unfortunately get my share. I hate the stuff generally. Only had Patron once and it was alright, but I'd rather stick to a diff liquor.

    I've got some 1.5 or so old oatmeal stout I brewed which I will probably taste again in the next day or so. When I first brewed it, it wasn't that good (to me). 8 months later it was pretty tasty, so I'm eager to see what it's like now.

    So far I've made (oldest to newest); oatmeal stout 5%, heller bock 7.2%, american wheat 4%, raspberry porter 5 or 6% (can't remember)

    I usually chug about half a gallon of water and eat something yeasty or fatty before sleeping during a night of drinking. That combined w/ the blood of Prussian kings running through my veins has resulted in 3 hangover free years. If you really don't want a hangover, get drunk on sake. It's one of, if not the purest alcohol you can buy.

    I brewed an oatmeal stout that did the same - it started out OK and then evolved into the 2nd best beer I ever made. As it was approaching 1 yr it was great and the one bottle that I saved for several more months was unbelievable. I wish I would saved more.

    Anyone interested in beers who hasn't yet should learn the Belgian styles. Ommegang's different varieties, if you can find them, are a great introduction because they're excellent (brewed in the US by a Belgian brewer) and fairly economical. Ommegang's Abbey sells for $5-$6 in a corked bottle but, because of the size and alcohol content, carries the punch of ~4 beers. Do the math, set an evening aside at home, and try one.

    lol Patron is good tequila, especially if your used to Jose' its a hell of a step up. there are tequila's that defiantly are much better, had one that compared to the best of any other liquor, ment to be drank on the rocks, straight and sipped......excellent stuff but it was $90 a bottle.......above about $50-$60 a bottle i tend to loose interest hence the reason i tend to drink Patrón Añejo when having tequila.....its about the best tequila i have found in that price range........course its pretty rare for me to drink myself stupid anymore.....usually have a drink or two and call it a night.

    thanks for the info on the oatmeal stout...............havent tried brewing beer yet....just wines/ciders. might have to use that for my first beer

    beer is a lil more complicated than what i posted above.......but far from rocket science. things like hard ciders and wines are pretty simple and straight forward......even with simple equipment you scrounge together you can brew a pretty good drink.....if you can brew a pretty good drink with the cheap stuff you can brew some outstanding stuff with good equipment. main thing to remember when going cheap and scrounging food grade buckets at resturaunts is just be carefull what was stored in them before.....if it was something with a strong smell like pickles your going to wind up with a drink that tastes like pickles

    Root beer.

    Regular beer is gross. I'm with Fryster. All that beer mystique is lost on me. It tastes like spoiled grain water.

    Beer is nasty. I don't know how you can enjoy that taste. Blah. Just... nasty.

    Has anyone noticed that one of the fruit of the loom fruits looks just like a hop? (Asks himself if one "hops" is called a "hop"...)
