    Has that fixed the falling off the bike problem?

    If it was stored over a long period of time, it might cause the plastic to dissipate. The plastic jugs make transportation more convienant. Most people after purchasing the shine, will divide it into glass quart jars.

    Thanks for the info!
    Freestate? Could be Bavarians.

    Interesting hard alcohol notes about Germany and Austria.

    They have sausage stands all over the place. Wurst and Doner Kebab are definitely the Germanic version of fast food. Anyway, every stand has little bottles of Jaegermeister for sale. They feel it soothes the stomach after a meal.

    They do tequila shooters with orange slices and cinnamon. Try it sometime. It's different.

    In the vending machines, beer is often cheaper than Coke.

    Same deal for me back in my OU days. I knew a guy from McArthur OH that was the ultimate party animal and he got his hands on some shine for us.

    'Bout ripped off the top my poor haid. I coughed and sputtered on the first drink. But then it got better. And that was when I saw the bear....

    Re: Favorite Hard Alcohol?

    Well, I don't drink a bit, but there is a funny story in our family that possibly could fit in this thread. It's not quite worth its own thread, but it's not bad.

    My great grandfather, well actually my grandmother's step father, made shine during the depression and sold it to support the family. My two great uncles, who were younger than Grandma and were just young boys at the time, would help sell the family goods whenever their step dad wasn't around and they were also a very mischievous lot.

    One day in the early 30s, someone came by to purchase some and he brought his own container, a glass jug. My uncle Chester took the jug and told the man to wait right there and they would fill it up and bring it back. My uncle Adrian was all for giving him the real stuff, but Chester talked him into putting water in the jug instead so they could swindle the guy out of some money. Chester must have been the more persuasive one because Adrian went along with it and they went out back to the creek and filled the jug with clear creek water.

    They brought the jug back to the man, took his money, and saw him on his way. Later that day, Step Dad came home and shortly after that, the man they had sold the water to arrived carrying the jug and he was not happy in the least. He was infuriated and the two boys were brought into the room so they could be given the lesson in proper business ettiquette. The man held up his jug of supposed shine and there was a small fish swimming around in it. Chester had scooped up a minnow and hadn't even noticed. Apparently, as the story has been told since, Chester started laughing and said, "Look Adrian, they's a minner in his shine."

    The man was given a jug of the real stuff and an extra one for free just for his trouble and the two boys were whipped soundly for being dishonest. Years later, Adrian became the more responsible of the two, serving in Europe in WWII and becoming rather successful after the war. He moved to Hamilton and stayed there until he passed about ten years ago. Chester is known for one accomplishment during his adult life. He got so drunk one day he tried to ride his motorcycle up the side of a barn. That didn't work. He lost an eye and the bike. I never saw him without the eye patch. He tried to tell me as a child that he lost the eye in the war, but someone else set me straight and told me how it really happened. If Chester did anything worthwhile in his life, it's that he served as a great example of why foolishness and alcohol don't go well together and he kept many of his younger relatives sober because of it.

    Jack or Beam. The former made the Taylor-Hopkins fight all the more enjoyable.

    I grew up in a place where moonshine was readily available.

    I once saw a guy at the pool hall pour a little on the floor and toss a match on it. A flame shot up three feet high.

    I only tried it once, that was enough.

    You could fly an airplane on that stuff.

    My grandmother, the same one mentioned in the earlier post, kept a jug of it in the house and swore by it as a cold remedy. She never touched it else, but if she had a cold, she would be mixing some of that with a bit of lemon juice. Either it stopped the cold, or she didn't care.

    Mad dog. I stalked a baby rabbit once when I had drunk a bottle of Mad Dog. I think the bunny was toying with me.

    The ingredients of Mad Dog are the same as a battery.
