-Makes people think you're a fag
-Am drunk but not wasted, i.e. I'm still lucid and can comprehend my environment to the point of normal functionality. I guess that's the main psychoactive effect everyone's on about. It's slightly different from being normally drunk, but not enough to write home about.
I definitely like it, but it's too expensive to buy for anything but special occasions. Luckily, I don't need that much to get properly retarded, so every bottle will probably last a while.
Absinthe now is not the same as absinthe at the turn of the century. It used to be made with Thujone, opium, and other narcotic compounds, but now it contains nothing of the sort.
All you're left with is an expensive, clear version of Sambuca with extra alcohol.
That said, i had some Lucid about a week ago and it was okay, but i wasn't really impressed. Which one did you have?
