If you had a time machine, and you traveled the Neolithic settlement of Skara Brae in Scotland, you would likely enter a world that invented psychedelia approx. 5,000 years before the Beatles, Pink Floyd, and Jefferson Airplane. According to Drink: A Cultural History of Alcohol by Iain Gately: See the full post »
This is a straggler from our Fire Week series that I am pretty sure was inspired by the videos we featured of everyday people drinking flaming alcohol and proceeding to make complete fools of themselves while throwing the makeshift napalm around the room and uncontrollably breathing fire.

Blog Post Title:The Devil’s Share Author: Doug B. Date: June 8th, 2008 Why I Chose This: I am sure a majority of you are going to be at New Years Eve parties tonight, and it is inevitable that the well-known martini glass will have a presence. I, like many others dread having to carry a martini glass around, but it was designed the way it is for a reason, gotta respect the purpose of the design. Besides, “it is also believed by some that the martini glass gained popularity during the prohibition days. You see, if the police came into a “speakeasy” club, the contents of the glass could be emptied and widely dispersed with a single and deliberate wrist action.” That is just awesome.
