    I saw people drink perfume for the alcohol content, and explain to me how to extract alcohol from various industrial liquids (such as cleaning fluid for cars).

    In the winter, you'd pour the liquid along a metal bar, and the alcohol, with the lowest freezing point, would be the last liquid to flow down after all the rest had frozen on the metal. You just needed to collect it.

    Yep, sounds like an addiction.

    •  that was awesome (none)
      that's pretty amazing. I think if there are ethers in it it will freeze slower than the alcohol, though.

      it wasn't as cold in ukraine, but just as alcoholic. cut-off caps for vodka boittles and the like, i don't think i've ever drunk so much in my life. the cleaning fluid sounds pretty grim.
