i don't know, everyone thinks it's so cool to try it, but personally, not a big fan of hallucinating

um.. just a piece of info for everyone up there: whatever you may find in a store today whether in europe or the us will not be the "real stuff" they drank in the nineteenth century. absinthe was forbidden in 1915 as it contained thuyone, a toxin that has a similar molecular structure as THC (found in weed). the absinthe you buy today has therefore nothing to do with the one people called the "green fairy", back in the day. however, if you're really keen on experiencing the same effects, you're welcome to light a big a fat joint in douse it in vermouth... doesn't sound that glamorous, does it? ;)

I've had it a few times (from Prague), both times I never hallucinated, but I was definitely "messy" as well!

I've had proper French absinthe and it tastes horrific and I didn't hallucinate...but I was very messy :oops: LOL

I have had absinthe before several times and experienced no crazy outlandish hallucinations. I think it was only a really long time ago (think the movie Moulin Rouge) when it was potent.

It's legal in Germany now, too. Before we had to "import" it from Poland, Czech or somewhere east. I have made some weird experiences with it when I was younger and wouldn't touch it anymore. Nothing with pacman ghosts, but still some heavy and long black outs and weird behaviour, not that you couldn't get that from any liquor, but with absinthe it's just faster, I think. Probably also depends on where it is from.

I picked some up in Missouri last November. It was pricey ($50 a fifth) and probably not the "real" stuff. It is uber strong. I still have like half the bottle cause I savor it for special occasions. If you don't like black licorice, do not even bother, that is exactly what the aftertaste is like (which I don't mind). I saw this in a liquor store by my apartment recently too (Michigan) another brand. The term "Absinthe" is for the TYPE of liquor, not the brand (as I originally thought).

It's legal here, but I still haven't tried it yet. It's quite expensive which is the main part holding me back. That and I'll need one night and a babysitter to stop me from chasing invisible pacman ghosts around the house.
