    you probably already know this, but if you drink 100% alcohol, you will go temporarily blind until the alcohol passes out of your system.

    no, not necessarily, that definately depends on the amount of 200 proof you consume...

    one of my friend's friends did it while he was around and was blind for 12+ hours because of it. I think this could be after you drink a shot or two, but i'm not sure.

    Most people would just pass out cold after a shot or two of straight alcohol if not from the alcohol itself, but from the horrid taste and throat burning power.

    No. No you wont.

    >>Straight alcohol, now that takes balls.

    Yes, and it also knocks them straight off. Someone mentioned a burning taste... They've barely begun to describe... Ever tasted gasoline? Lets just say that I'd rather drink that then have another double of 200 proof again... Seriously people, you really dont want to try it. I was worshipping the Porcelin God for hours.

    aran elus,

    i don't know where you heard that...maybe some baptist group or something, but it's just not true. methanol, not grain alchohol is toxic. not the kind you drink, idiot..

    who knows, maybe my friend's "200 proof alcohol" was in fact laced with methanol?

    why don't you go and sit in the middle of traffic.

    i hope you're not glorifying this stuff. a close friend of mine passed out one night drinking this mexican everclear stuff. we brought him home and what not and left him on the sofa. when his father found him the next day (dead) his face was so deformed from alcohol poisoning that his own father couldn't recognize his face. don't mess with this stuff, there's better ways of passing the time.

    No offence, but its harmless in moderation. Drinking wont give you alcohol poisoning. Drinking one helluva lot will give you alcohol poisoning. Tylenol is good for headaches. An entire bottle of Tylenol...?

    Know your limit. And I mean actually know it. Some people arent able to know their limit. By the time they get there, they've passed the point where they're able to make rational decisions. Hopefully then you have one of those annoying friends that takes your keys and beats you up until you go to sleep on his floor. Fun is fun. Killing someone (or dying yourself) is not.

    I've been known to go out and get absolutly **** faced, but you wont find me behind the wheel, out fighting on the street, yelling at the waitress, puking on the sidewalk, whatever, etc etc etc. Responsability isnt something that comes automatically when you turn 19 (21 some places) as the gov seems to think.

    As we say "Driving the porcelin bus" or "having a technicolour yawn"

    Methanol causes blindness. Is byproduct of incorrect distilation. Can be tested for by evaporating teaspoon of liquor. If leaves brown/black residue do not drink.
