I seriously doubt that a human being could smoke real absinthe and be able to walk afterwards.

i smoked cognac flavour but it had no alcohol in it. I assume absinthe works the same way.
ùI'm not an expert, but would smoking absinthe that different from drinking it?

Not exactly sure - but Id guess directly being absorbed into the bloodstream via your lungs might be more intensive/fast in terms of alcohol uptake, if the purity was the same.

That said, thinking about it, you couldn't have much real achole in a flavor anyway - it would change the evaporation point of the fluid.

i know that there's a huge difference between smoking cannabis and ingesting it. both in the time it takes to kick in and the intensity of the effect.

Thanks Reek - apparently "eating delays the onset of effect but the duration of effect is typically longer". I have friends who worked in Columbia, and they told me that many people eat coca leaves like we eat chewing gums, especially old people. It still seems weird to me.
now that I remember, I also smoked some vodka in a shisha a couple of years ago. I know Vodka vodka is only around 40% ABV, while absynth can also reach 80%, but I didn't feel fuzzy at all, and this happens to me when I drink much. Consuming many drinks probably probably has a worse effect than smoking a shisha I guess.
PS - I don't want to sound like I'm an heavy drinker - I don't have that habit nor the have it. I just like to have fun once in a while every couple of months

at least in the ecigs, the alcoholic stuff is just a perfume/flavouring. they had energy drink flavoured ones... no idea why you'd enjoy that for the taste...

on the subject of 3D printers:

http://www.independent.co.uk/life-st...r-9333788.html

this interested me A LOT at first.... however, for the time being it only does eyeshadow... which contrary to what she says, is cheap to buy in many different colours.

this cost me £4 in a sale, for example:

foundation however... if they did lose mineral foundation, shiiiiit i'd be buying that for double it's rrp.

I heard of that, seemed a good idea, but I was a little skeptical on the refile cost, given how expensive cosmetics are normally.
I mean surely youd need fluids for all the various primary colors + fluids for all the various types. Thats going to be pretty pricey no? Although I guess they would be all refillable separately so they should last awhile.

Thinking about it, maybe they could expand the idea to a generic "mixer" device - the same device could do makeup, but probably with just different refiles it could do perfume or (brining this right around) 3Cig vapors. Its all just mixing fluids in custom amounts really.

if they could make good printed foundation it would solve like a bazillion problems in makeup. you can pretty much buy every colour of eyeshadow and/or lipstick for a decent price if you shop around. however, a good match for your foundation is INSANELY difficult, especially if you're a poc. they don't stock super dark makeup (a friend of mine has NEVER found a good makeup match). even big makeup brands only do makeup up to a certain level of darkness, and even then it maybe one or two shades. dark skin has more than one skintone...

i have severe difficulties finding something pale enough for my skin and lighten my foundation (which is the lightest in the brand i use, which is one of the lightest on the market) with a pressed powder on the top. some girls need to use a pure white foundation and mix that with another foundation. it's not just about the lightness either; tone is also really important and shows on your skin. i think, if this is done really well, this could be a really cool product. one pot of my makeup is £17, coupled with a powder at £15 and lasting 2/3 months, it's really expensive for something that doesn't QUITE match y'know!!

The absinthe is probably just anise and fennel flavored. Smoking it wouldn't do anything to you.

And what a waste of vodka, putting it in shisha. You can't smoke alcohol, it cooks off.

Anywhowhatwhywherewhen...

The newest episode is being exported now, in the meantime I updated out website;
www.randomreviewshow.com

If people could take a look and let me know if it works ok for them. Aside from various os/browsers/resolutions, its also running off a new server so lots could be wrong
I was basically using this as an excuse to play with some fancy CSS stuff.
