ITT: East european alcoholics.
*raises glass to our neighbours
my friends were working in Limeric or like that, and they were saying that they had to jump on street "from one vomit-free pavement block, to another" looking to not get into vomit, they said that they were shocked, cause by stereotype Poles and Russians drink the most, but we never seen whole vomited streets or well-dressed people sleeping on the street in vomits, really , if we see such person than he is homeless :O

Slatts & HydroPump - Brothers in ArmA since 2002
I think that Australian officials should worry more about their Aboriginals and how they destroyed whole aboriginal communities by giving them free money for being Aboriginal. They literally drink away their whole lives, drink till they pass out in the streets. Of course they used to drink their much weaker brews before this social welfare and damn money benefits. It's so sad what happened to Aboriginals in Australia. 'Free' money handed to the people never did any good.

The reaction to this stuff may seem over the top, but its mostly due to our crap media and because the financial cost of alcohol and especially the weekend binge drinking culture is quite topical here. The government has ads on TV and billboards about the negative influence drinking in front of your young kids has on them, drunk young people getting photos taken while having sex in the garden at a party, hit by cars, killing people in car crashes, throwing up in the toilets in front of your work mates, etc. It's all aimed at 18-25 year olds, who would be the only people that will buy rectified spirits (for novelty's sake). Our government loves to ban things that are stronger than the status quo, for example all our caffeine drinks are capped at near coffee strength per volume.
Spirits and beer are taxed (heavily) by alcohol content so it's no cheaper per alcohol content to buy than normal 35% alcohol whiskey (this is also why strong spirits are unpopular here). The real alcoholics here drink wine, since it is taxed differently and is cheaper per alcohol content.

in Polish we call it kaczki (journal ducks), sezon ogórkowy (cucumber season),
we can translate it as smokescreen topic,
journalists MUST find ANYTHING to put on broadcast "between commercial breaks", so they find "poison habits, old woman had dog with long ears, one cat raped dog, mr. X saw UFO in his garden and it broke his grass"
journalists must have something to fill in news , to fill broadcast , which in real is only to make people stay by TV and watch commercial breaks every 15-20 minuts
it's not about issue, it's about fulfilling broadcast time
another day TV will say about kangaroo which raped dog of Ms. Anna McCornick the more people will watch, the more will see commercial break 5 minuts later
one Polish media-sociologist said that such programs (you can dance, stupid news, talkshows, etc) are done because TV must sell commercials, so people must watch them, so TV must do anything to bring more and more people to TV,
for sure poisoning vodka from Europe is better than "our company did harm to natural environment in Sierra Leone"
if you would have "boring" (for mainstream, boring for low educated and low ambitions user) broadcast, noone will watch commercials, people who watch ambition movies, people who watch scientific programs, mostly hate commercials and turn off tv
so you make broadcast which will bring to tv lots of those, who will buy something after commercial, so you do broadcast on their level

Here's a joke I picked up in some obscure ex-Yugo country (no offense, people )
"Why is the highest legal limit in *part of country* double that in the rest of the country?"
"They have to account for the .6 permils in the air they breathe."
But seriously, alcohol is pretty dangerous. Just ask all the people that get hit by a guy driving on the wrong side of the road.
I thought only us locals knew this (true) story.
Sadly the local aboriginals have a genetic weakness to becoming alcoholics (like many aboriginals world wide). They are a minority, and the government is giving most money .... for nothing.
You can guess where they spend it.
some people travel to their families which work in Your country (and NZ) so they know issuesHuh? You dont live in Australia, so how do you know this?!
returning to topic, has anyone used spiritus with chocolate icecream drinking strong alcohol is not good habit, but giving it to icecream (one small spoon) or to cure yourself (with fresh "green" walnuts (May in Europe) melting for weeks or pepper) is good
to drink spiritus there is only one rule, it is connected with breathing (exhale, inhale) , if you drink such strong volume wrongly breathing , you can have problems and suddenly fall down (reaction of lungs on it) afair it is drink "on exhale"
if someone is not "trained" he can really fall down due to reaction of organism (i suppose it is connected with fumes of alcohol for lungs), spiritus cannot be drink like vodka or wine (and it is written by me, enemy of alcohol )
shooting is also "on exhale" , isn't it

Of course they drank alcohol before the whites, but their drinks were pretty weak, a naturally fermented fruit juices can't compare to rum or vodka,
