    Re: Do you ever wish bourbon did not contain ethanol?

    I had a similar analogy in mind but chose discretion instead.

    Re: Do you ever wish bourbon did not contain ethanol?

    Now I have this terrible feeling that if I actually drink my bourbon I'm going to wake up with vd.

    It blocks the euphoric effects, not the effect that leaves you begging for 1 more chance and swearing to never do it again as you lay in the fetal position after somehow crawling in behind the toilet in the female dorms.

    My answer to the original question: No.

    Okay, new question. Do you ever wish coconut creame pie didn't contain coconut?

    And as for strip clubs and going home alone, my experience with strip clubs is that you won't have sex but you will get screwed.

    I once knew a guy who didn't like cocaine. He just really liked the way it smelled.

    The real question may actually be: do you ever wish coconut cream pie contained real coconut instead of "natural" and/or artificial flavours that taste like coconut?

    Re: Do you ever wish bourbon did not contain ethanol?

    I occasionally wish that some of the more full-flavored and rich-aroma'd (if that's a word.... I guess it is; I just typed it right?) of my favorite Bourbons had a little less alcohol, since most of those drams are high-proof ones. Then again, if they were lower proof, they'd likely be less impressive in the two other highly-sought categories of taste and smell, eh....? So, I suppose to sum up, I'm a bit ambivalent on the whole lower-alcohol, or alcohol-free question.....sorry.
