    Too Much

    Drank too much of it, got really drunk and woke up in a puddle of vomit on the floor... **** did seem greener for a bit there, might have been a placebo effect though.

    Interesting, But Not Unusual

    I first met The Green Fairy on a visit to Mexico, before its recent re-legalization in the US.  I like the taste, and the louche with water is fun, but I can't say it had any more effect than any other high-alcohol liqueur like Grand Marnier.  I've had tequilas that...

    Me Too

    Honestly there isn't much that I haven't tried, homemade moonshine I would have to say was the harshest, but I really am not a scotch person at all, I hate the after taste.

    that I accidentally put my friends head through the wall of the pub where I was working at the time. Absinthe does horrible things to good people.

    The Green Fairy.

    i had to do it when given the chance, because oscar (wilde) did, and i love him so. it was a sort of trippy feeling, but i don't think i had enough to really see its full potential. then again, i have a fairly high tolerance for most things. ::shrug::
