    wow that...blows

    hehe sorry had to say it
    "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." Ben Franklin

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    WHY, OH WHY!!! What have we done to anger you Lord?

    I hope this doesn't create a Beam shortage. Well, if it does I'll just have to get into what's left of my Y2K stash. Oh wait, I finished that off to celebrate the fact that there was no Y2K calamity...dammit.

    Why can't fire destroy bad liquor like Ouzo, Cuervo, and Jamesons??

    that has to be that saddest thing I have ever seen.

    Can gin even burn?

    Instead of a wall of flame, I imagine a little "poof" of flame and then a very elegant plume of smoke-and that's it

    tq

    In my younger days I used to light shots of tequila, but I never let it burn long enough to seriously deplete the alcohol content.

    The good news:

    The company said the warehouse held about 19,000 barrels of bourbon, or less than two percent of its bourbon inventory.
    All these years the people said he’s actin’ like a kid.
    He did not know he could not fly, so he did.

    All that fine booze wasted in flames... well at least I haven't heard of any drunk guys trying to kick the flame's a$$ because of stealling their precious bourbon...
