Maybe if you try the joke a 3rd time it'll be funny.

A challenger appears.

I really, really hate the notion that Jager is stronger than whatever else. It's a tasty liqueur (well, if you like licorice), and not much more. 70 proof and sweetened. It will actually fark you up LESS than whiskey or any other serious hard liquor, which is always gonna be 80 proof or higher. A lot of gins and some rums are made at 92 or 94 proof, which is the traditional navy proof, for reasons I won't go into here. You want to really get farked up on licorice flavored whatever? Try asbinthe,or pernod, the version without wormwood from when our government went nuts thinking that the trace amounts of thujone somehow made a difference- they don't. Often bottled at ridiculous strengths, though you're supposed to water and sugar it down to your preferred strength and sweetness. But we're talking about a product routinely bottled at around 75% ABV (more than twice the strength of jager)- if you wanted to get really hammered, it wouldn't be a chore.

The whole frat boy myth that Jager is some super strong whatever liquor is just crap. It's stronger than some of the other liqueurs you find drunk at parties (a lot of people seem to buy schapps or whatever not noticing they're only 15% ABV, which is 30 proof, and thinking they're serious spirits), but although you may think you're being a big stud by doing two shots of Jager, that guy sipping a good old gin martini is drinking more alcohol than you are. And it is just the alcohol- there aren't any magic drugs or compounds in Jager that will do anything out of the ordinary to you- it's just the ethanol. Though the sugar might give you a high.


I ..

I can't even figure out where to begin with this.

You seem to be having a serious frat-boy rage problem. I am not it.

Alcohol is pretty much alcohol, except when you start adding a lot of stuff to it that makes your body deal with it differently. I never said otherwise.

Jeager has a (well earned, IMHO) reputation for turning the politest of drinkers into slobbering smacktards.

Tequila does the same thing to some people. I just picked jeager because it has that reputation.

Don't quote me and start your "Lesson to the teenagers" speech as if I need the lesson. I'm pretty sure I've drank more Captain than you have looked at. I've worked in bars for over a decade, and I'm not an idiot when it comes to drinking.

Yes, there are some people deserving of that little speech you just gave, but I'm not them so back the hell off.

I'm partial to the Long Isaland Tea myself. 2 of those and I know everything and I'm not afraid to tell you either.

/It's been a decade since I last had one. We're all better off that way.

DownTheRabbitHole: I love all tea. Flavored black tea, herbals, and green tea are my favorite especially flavored green. There are definitely health benefits has to be consumed in large quantities.

I don't add any sugar to my tea and when I drink black tea, I only put a little bit of unsweetened almond milk. Once you start omitting the sugar you won't miss it; I promise.

It is by will alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the tea of green that thoughts acquire speed, the lips acquire stains, stains become a warning. It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.

Will green tea expand my life and allow me to fold space?

A Terrible Human: ♫ Said colt 45 and two zigzags baby thats all we need
We can go to the park, after dark smoke that tumbleweed
As the marijuana burn we can take our turn singin' them dirty rap songs
Stop and hit the bong like cheech and chong and sell tapes from here to Hong Kong
So roll, roll, roll my joint, pick out the seeds and stems
Feeling high as hell flyin' through Palmdale,skatin' on dayton rims
So roll, roll, the '83 Cadillac coupe Deville
If my tapes and my CDs just don't sell, I bet my caddy will ♫
/I wonder whatever happened to Afroman?

He does frat parties now. Recently played at a bar here in good ol' Columbia, SC.

Green Tea might have some good properties when it's fresh, but by the time you get your hands on it and it's gone through 12 different processing plants and warehouses, most of the beneficial stuff is gone because all of it is in the volatile oils.

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.

I'm weird about green tea. I don't like it until I drink it. Then I like it, then I forget I liked it the last time until I give in and have it again.

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.

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

/I'm full of flavonoids.
