You may have seen things recently about the daily habits, sleeping patterns and dietary habits of different kinds of geniuses through history. But one person that’s not on any of those lists that I’ve seen is Hunter S. Thompson, and that’s probably because Hunter S. Thompson’s daily routine is not one that’s recommended for mere mortals. Not that people haven’t and don’t exist on a mostly nocturnal schedule, with a day filled with liquor, cocaine, weed and LSD, but none of those people are Hunter S. Thompson.
A whiskey shortage? Don’t be silly… whiskey is forever. Ah, but no. See, America has actually gotten pretty damn good at making the stuff, which is good for everyone. But this means that America is now exporting its fine brown liquor overseas, from both distilleries large and small.

So that’s not good.
Holiday travel fun fact: Did you know the TSA will let you take your own liquor cabinet on a plane? Yes ma’am.
If you’re going to be flying anywhere over Thanksgiving or Hanukkah or Thanksukkah or Christmas, that shit’s gonna be stressful. But even though there are lots of things you can’t take on a plane anymore, you can still apparently bring quite a lot of alcohol on board, as long as it’s in the right containers.

Few things in life will put you in the mood to kick-ass like the combination of alcohol and classic Godzilla/Kaiju movies. Knowing this, and possibly wanting to start vicious brawls at the upcoming Godzilla movie’s opening night lines, an enterprising company has decided to pack 720 ml of fuel-grade, blue-flame producing grain alcohol in a “berserk … yet friendly” looking Godzilla bottle.
It’s only Wednesday morning, but let’s talk about your favorite kinds of liquor.
Last week, Maker’s Mark pissed everyone off when they announced they were lowering their whiskey from 45% alcohol to 42%, which quickly caused a firestorm of hate across the web. And then a couple days ago, Maker’s Mark made another announcement that they will not be watering down their liquor after all. Drink up!
Well… beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but G-Spirits is a real product. It’s a brand of liquor whose selling point is that its drink has been poured over the chest of a busty woman, giving it I guess just a hint of big boobie flavor.
