Tenshimitsu : Yup, I also heard that absinth is dangerous to health...I protest
Okay, well... alcohol itself is dangerous to health, I admit it. And absinthe is definitely not from the healthiest end of herbal boozes, but again I say, it's dangerous only in large quantities. Luckily, it's also so high in voltage that 1) it needs to be heavily diluted with water (we're talking about 3:1 to 5:1) and 2) It's taste is so strong it can't be devoured just-like-that. Every now and then a glassful of absinthe is okay.
Besides, after watching the absinthe-scene from the Moulin Rouge, I got a wondrous idea to my comic... just wait and see, maybe you'll spot a green fairy!
