theflatline: Martinis will tank you quicker and harder than Jaeger, but people tend to sip a Martini, not just toss it back.

The problem witgh Jaeger drinkers is that they will do 4-5 shots or bombs in an hour chased with three beers, or a couple of mix drinks. So it is a recipe for a quick drunk, and when you get hammered quickly, especially when mixed with red bull, then that makes for one crazy drunk fark.

So it is not the Jaeger, just the quantity in a small period of time.

I drink double ketels and soda, with a shot of patron on the side. So a drink every 20 minutes. So I ease into my inebration.

Jaeger is all about the hype.

Bingo. It's how much you drink, not what you drink. If they were tossing back whiskey, they'd be even more farked up. But they're tossing back Jaeger because Jaeger has a hell of a marketing department.

somedude210: Mugato: naughtyrev: Billy Dee Williams begs to differ.

I don't know, Vader swindled him pretty good. And he obviously sucks at cards if he lost his ship to Solo. And he got nowhere with Leia.

She just wasn't sure about going black, since you can never go back and he's the only black guy in the galaxy

Lando was not the only black guy in the galaxy.

Great news. I drink 5 pints of tea a day. I'll get to see my children die of old age. I'll be farking begging for the sweet, sweet kiss of death.

Wouldn't have guessed that, on fark, an article about green tea becomes a thread about the relative inebriating merits of jaeger and whiskey, and various malt liquors.

Red Horse, a beer made by San Miguel in the Philippines will kick your IQ down to Trump's level.

kimwim: I can't stand green tea anything. It reminds me of cow cud. Can't drink it, wash my hair with it, can't stand the ice cream version, don't like it.

Is it tea-flavored beer or beer-flavored tea?

I can't stand cow cud, but I drink lots of green tea.

/I'm full of flavonoids.

I don't mind the taste of cow cud. It's making out with the cow that bothers me.

jjwars1: It's not the ABV that makes jäger popular. Like Absinthe, it has a mythical reputation which is why it's popular.

I think it's the fact that it tastes like shiat unless you mix it with red bull. I love absinthe and ouzo, the licorice doesn't bother me, but the thick sticky sweetness is disgusting. On the other hand, most people hate the taste of licorice - mix that into essentially cough syrup and you have an utterly vile drink that tastes even worse on the way back up a few hours later. Of course there are going to be myths around it, just like Night Train and Four Loco. Red bull is gross enough, but even that improves Jäger.

The real reason you throw up is the sugars, though. The interaction of sugar and alcohol is pretty complex and not fully understood, but sugar is one way to get much quicker alcohol absorption, while masking some of the taste of alcohol, plus the extra free glucose followed by the extra insulin floating around your body after an hour or so messes you up. The effect on the brain is pretty minimal unless you're hypoglycemic when you start shooting, but might keep you on the dance floor a little longer.

I've heard people ascribe heart palpation to Jäger when the only way they drink it is slamming Jäger/Red Bull all night, though. Durr, maybe it's the caffeine, dude.
