    Nope, its a hepatotoxin and prolonged exposure to it (through inhalation or skin) can cause liver failure.

    Do you know how much it is, out of interest?

    Cheaper than buying regular alcohol and separating the alcohol yourself?

    As far as I know, the most potent liquor legal in the US is Everclear, and in its strongest variety it is 190 proof - and it is illegal in some states.
    It tastes pretty damned nasty is is incredibly potent.

    One shot...
    First your lips get warm, then the rest of your mouth, and you can feel the warmth slowly travel down your esophagus into your body - it's a very strange sensation.
    That warmth is followed by an almost instant numbness that follows the same path.
    The second shot isn't nearly as bad, since your whole face, mouth and tastebuds are numb by then.
    I have a high tolerance, but three shots was enough to seriously fuck me up.
    Most people I know get drunk from one shot.

    My friends make moonshine. Similar experience as the one you describe raven, but more methanol-y.

    have fun

    Sounds nasty and potentially dodgy. Don't they run it through activated charcoal and that kind of thing?
