184 is good. This time last year I was 216 then, realized I couldn't fit into anything anymore so got my self back to about 166-170. Life is good!

I would really like to try some of this...that is, if I can afford it (my money this month isn't too great).

 

Haha looks like I'll have to pawn off my plasma or something for extra cash... Now that's dedication.

I'm sure Kerouac, Cassidy & Co. weren't thrilled with them either, and they didn't even have access to absinthe...at least you'll have that to assuage your misery. ;)

Got the Helfrich today.

While I'm not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, I have to wonder if this is really a 50cl bottle. It's a lot bigger than the Duplais bottles, ( and all other 50cl bottles that I stood it next to ) with a slightly greater diameter as well. With the level at the same relative place in the necks of both bottles, I'm stumped how they can have the same amount of fluid. This looks more like a 70cl bottle to me.

EDIT: I have to be crazy to say 70cl. But maybe 60? I don't know. It looks bigger than 50cl to me.

Look under the bottle, it says '50cl' in the molded glass.

I've compared it to my Jades 50cl an it looks bigger but the glass is thicker too, that explains why ;)

Yeah, it dwarfs the Blanchette bottle in every dimension. Optical illusion and the thickness of the glass can account for a lot, I guess.

Ah, well, I've known for a long time that I was crazy.

In point of fact we added a surplus of about 20cl and keep our fingers crossed that the excise authorities won't notice. No, it's more or less a design issue: we just didn't want a shabby bottle for this product. Or maybe we simply wanted huge half litres for our American customers. Whatever. These bottles contain 50cl.

As your attorney, I'd advise you to get a new doctor. ;)

 

Now that was a wacky book. Not a bad movie either. I myself have fear and loathing often. Mostly loathing.
