    well, but the concentration of that hallucinogen is only a tenth of what it used to be. so don t expect too much from it. But I guess 70% aclohol does the job

    Up on Cripple Creek - J.R.Robertson
    ________________________________________
    When I get off of this mountain, you know where I want to go?
    Straight down the Mississippi river, to the Gulf of Mexico
    To Lake Charles, Louisiana, little Bessie, girl that I once knew
    She told me just to come on by, if there's anything she could do

    Up on Cripple Creek she sends me
    If I spring a leak she mends me
    I don't have to speak, she defends me
    A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one

    Good luck had just stung me, to the race track I did go
    She bet on one horse to win and I bet on another to show
    The odds were in my favor, I had 'em five to one
    When that nag to win came around the track, sure enough she had won

    Up on Cripple Creek she sends me
    If I spring a leak she mends me
    I don't have to speak, she defends me
    A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one

    I took up all of my winnings, and I gave my little Bessie half
    And she tore it up and threw it in my face, just for a laugh
    Now there's one thing in the whole wide world, I sure would like to see
    That's when that little love of mine, dips her doughnut in my tea

    Up on Cripple Creek she sends me
    If I spring a leak she mends me
    I don't have to speak, she defends me
    A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one

    Now me and my mate were back at the shack, we had Spike Jones on the box
    She said, "I can't take the way he sings, but I love to hear him talk"
    Now that just gave my heart a throb, to the bottom of my feet
    And I swore and I took another pull, my Bessie can't be beat

    Up on Cripple Creek she sends me
    If I spring a leak she mends me
    I don't have to speak, she defends me
    A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one

    Now there's a flood out in California and up north it's freezing cold
    And this living on the road is getting pretty old
    So I guess I'll call up my big mama, tell her I'll be rolling in
    But you know, deep down, I'm kind of tempted
    To go and see my Bessie again.

    Up on Cripple Creek she sends me
    If I spring a leak she mends me
    I don't have to speak, she defends me
    A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one

    Tried it once. It was 70% also. I took one shot, straight not diluted, and threw up the next morning. Before that, I hadn't thrown up in years. So, make sure you add sugar and water. :spudniklu

    I doubt it can do what it used to. I believe the wormwood concentration is lower in all manufactured bottles now-a-days. :spudniklu

    i drank plenty of absinth when i lived in czech. cant really say i ever got any wild effects. youll get drunk before anything. I think the hallucinations come with long term use....

    Anybody thought of trying to add more wormwood, to increase the concentration?
    Styxecl, it burned my stomach too AND it numbed my lips. :spudniklu

    Isnt wormwood used as a paint thinner in germany? My friend lived their for 6 years and in art class they had to have parental consent to use the paint thinner... This was also on a AFB.

    Do you know how to pour the abstine? Do you have a sugar cube spoon?

    If the brand is Hills, Le Fee or La Boheme then its gonna have a pretty high wormwood content, but i would suggest drinking it like this, One shot of Absinthe Original in a small tumbler. Take a teaspoon of sugar. Dip the teaspoon into the absinthe so that the sugar absorbs the liquid. Then, holding the spoon above the absinthe, set light to the sugar. Let it burn for a minute or so. The sugar will bubble and begin to caramelise. Once the flame is beginning to die down, stir the shot of absinthe with the sugared spoon (smothering the glass if it catches alight). Now add an equal measure of water and some ice if needed. I suggest using the water and ice....

    Rent The Movie "from Hell". In The Bonus Disc There's A Whole Section On It. What Color The Real Stuff Is And All That Stuff. Just Think People Really Used To Lace It With Laudanum (opium Based Tonic) In The Days Of Way Back. I Did A Report On It Before. People Like Ben Franklin,thomas Jefferson And George Washington Himself. Most Of The Time It Was Used As A Pain Killer Though.
