  1. Roughly... Although they should have been banned.
  2. I found this in the basement of my new turn of the century house (last century). Times are hard and I'd be better selling it than drinking it. Refreshing
  3. Or specifically: temp control temp measurement heater vacuum sealer make sure you ground your pot and use a gfic outlet
  4. MGS: Depends on your comfort with wiring. Immersion heating coils are a non-inductive load i.e. do not not require a change in frequency to change the desired out-put. (Light dimmers switches were about $15 or less last I checked) Of course a similar approach can be made by acidifying, which is what I think Ambear might have getting at.
  5. The cement analogy is a good one. The only thing that dictates the louche (given the mixtures of oils) is the ratio of water to ethanol, and is completely reversible.

  14. I dig buffalo trace bourbon; it's amazing for the money. I have no doubt they can remove the tails, but you can always watch popcorn on the boob-tube for instructional videos, and you can also see the best ways to avoid the law.
  15. I knew an ex-NYer that would field a "drip trip" to the Pre-Guiliani state dripping between the many porn stalls. Unfortunately he is dead and the world is less interesting place because of it and this has nothing to do with porn (a great writer, a great common man's lunatic):
