    Default Which liquids can I drink?

    I found this neato article about what liquids are drinkable.

    I noticed there's no mention of the difference between ethyl and methyl
    alcohol.

    There is far too MUCH info available on The Net,
    and far too FEW people who can properly sort,
    understand and use that info.

    Don't drink too much dihydrogen monoxide.

    Cool. One hopes that you will be able to keep the difference between
    methanol and ethanol. Both of which you should huff enthusiastically
    through a paper bag attached to an automobile exhaust pipe. Cheers!

    A totally worthless article, since drinking methyl alcohol will make much
    more damages than ethyl alcohol: first it dims your vision, then it make you
    totally blind and then it kills you. Every year there are some casualties
    connected with alcoholic beverages containing too much methyl alcohol
    (there's an unharmful naturally occurring little amount in many alcoholic
    drinks), expecially with vodka in eastern Europe, but some decades ago it
    happened with wine in Italy, also.

    thousands died during Prohibition in the US. There was one bad batch that
    apparently killed about 10,000 in NYC once... why is it alcohol is the only
    "food/drink" they don't label with ingredients? Even when I buy baby
    carrots, the bag lists on the back ingredients... Ingredients: carrots.

    I learned long ago that distilled water and pure grain alcohol are the
    *only* liquids that don't sap us of our precious bodily fluids.
