    More Information:
    We like to keep our contributors on their toes here in Facts, and what better way to do that than subjecting them to gloriously high alcohol percentages of Absinthe? From a measly 68%, all the way up to almost 90%, watch in awe as we (well...they) experience the unique flavour that is absinthe. (Honestly, we're just glad they're still with us.)

          To be fair, 160 proof is the cutoff point between "that'll get you drunk fast", and, "Well, let's not do that regularly".

              Absinthe seems scary, especially the green one.

                                    If you decide to make a video about absinthe, make sure you pick quality brands that actually represent the product, and inform yourself about how it is served properly. This video is sensationalist garbage in both these areas - what is shown is terrible, artificially colored hooch, and it's not properly diluted with cold water.
