Couldn't comment much about absinthe in particular (except to say it's well known to have a very strong, unpleasant taste right out of the bottle), but the closest legal thing is Chartreuse (verte, of course), which is a 110-proof liqueur of 107 different herbs, all part of a closely-guarded Charte monk recipe.

I remember one time, I was sitting along in my room, sipping on my third or fourth glass (not shot, but actual glass: tumbler-size) of the stuff while watching TV when suddenly, I realized I was actually standing about three feet behind myself and off to the right, watching myself watching TV.

And no; I don't think the fact that they were Marilyn Manson videos (Dead To The World tour) had anything to do with it.

So yeah. Good stuff. Then again, a friend of mine drank his Chartreuse too quickly and spent the next four hours chronically vomiting, followed by uncontrollable dry heaving.
