Quote:Talk about a powder keg.

Palcohol may soon be at a liquor store near you. The product was recently approved for consumption by the Federal Government, which means society could well be on its way to snorting itself into oblivion. But that's NOT HOW IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE USED, PEOPLE.

From the company's site:


We have seen comments about goofballs wanting to snort it. Don't do it! It is not a responsible or smart way to use the product. To take precautions against this action, we've added volume to the powder so it would take more than a half of a cup of powder to get the equivalent of one drink up your nose. You would feel a lot of pain for very little gain. Just use it the right way.

UPDATE:
Quote:A federal agency that had originally approved a new powdered alcohol product reversed its position Monday.

The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau approved Palcohol's powdered vodka, rum, and other cocktails "in error," Tom Hogue, the agency's director of congressional and public affairs, said in an email. The agency has not responded to any further questions.

The company that makes Palcohol -- Tempe, Ariz.-based Lipsmark LLC -- said that "there seemed to be a discrepancy [about] how much powder" is in the packets, which are meant to be mixed with water.

Lipsmark said that it will resubmit the product for approval.

Quote:But the company, which also says its product can be sprinkled on food (vodka eggs, anyone?) insists that, when used as directed, Palcohol has as much alcohol as a regular mix drink.

What could possibly go wrong. I'm sure the kids will love the new Pixy Stix damned.gif A friend of mine told me his friends back in the Netherlands are soaking Tampons in alcohol and sticking them where the sun don't shine for a buzz. wtf2.gif
Not in a million years could you get me to try that, my point is, it was meant to be consumed in liquid form. Any other method is just asking for trouble, and I bet this is five times as expensive as the real thing, and it's going to be sweet.
I can envision teenagers throwing up on the carpet as I type.

That was the first thing I thought about when I read about powdered alcohol. Teens and morons running lines until they fall out with alcohol poisoning.

I am not your carpet ride I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind, I am the lightning
I am not your autumn moon, I am the night

Originally made for astronauts to go along with their powdered and freeze dried food? which certainly adds a whole new perspective on space disasters...
