Someone named their vodka after Ruble?  That's infringement.

Is it 75 percent abv or 75 proof? One of those I'd buy

It's 100% ethyl alcohol. By definition, it cannot be denatured and still be 200 proof.

Anyone dumb enough to take so much as a sip of booze that's stronger than Everclear deserves whatever happens to them as a result; anyone who can afford to buy a gallon of pure ethyl alcohol can probably also afford less lethal liquor.

Totally tasteless, it's like if a band called itself Anthrax.

Seriously it's not a bad name for booze but I think they should have sat on the product for a year, or at least several months after the last two victims.

Actually, in the laboratory environment, "proof" can refer to all alcohols present, not just ethanol. Thus denaturing agents like methanol or propanol can be added without reducing the designated proof.

That gallon jar will run you about $90 though, so it's actually a pretty good deal from a pure volume of alcohol standpoint. Same company offers a five gallon jug for ~$400 in case you were tailgating and wanted to mix drinks for the entire parking lot or something.

A martini is stirred, not shaken.  You don't want to bruise the gin.

By my 16th birthday, I was already able to drink 4 or so shots of Everclear every two hours... already a pretty experienced drinker at that point, with a strong preference for clear alcohols.

I mean, I was in a wheelchair, in a Montana town of 100 people. No internet or cable; what the hell else was there to do? :p

I think more than a hint is too much. I rinse the sides of an empty shaker with Martini & Rossi extra dry vermouth, pour any extra down the drain, then add ice, two shots Bombay Sapphire gin, and shake vigorously until the shaker gets frosty. Don't just bruise the gin -- beat it to hell. Then serve immediately with three jumbo Mezzetta Spanish Queen olives. That's the start of a beautiful evening.

Have an airplane bottle of everclear, sitting on the bar. Friend of mine stocked me up for a long flight and threw in two of those to fark with me, let's just say that the second one is safe

I drank some rocket fuel right out of the Mason jar - they told me not to, so I did - and it left me as hoarse as Tom Waits. My throat was r-a-w.

Only time I felt drunk was if I moved my head.

So, yeah. Don't drink science booze.
