Germans Selling Alcohol in Powder Form

From Germany’s Deutsche Welle:

They look harmless enough, the inconspicuous packets often next to the cashier at gas stations, convenience stores, beverage stores and bars. But according to consumer protection officials, that’s what makes them all the more dangerous, since the powder inside contains alcohol, and a lot of it—about 4.8 percent by volume. That is the equivalent of one to one-and-a-half glasses of liquor.

Apparently the kids are buying it and… uh, you know, getting drunk.

Now please enjoy an orchestral version of the German national anthem.

(Thanks for the tip, Durr.)

Of course, Paris. But you already knew this. Just like you knew you could also snort taco bell taco sauce. You stupid bitch.

WTF? They're Germans. They live in Germany, where the official drinking age of 16 is about as well enforced as the Fourth Amendment in the US. They live in a place that exports incredible amounts of beer to the rest of the world, and is renowned for events like Oktoberfest, which centers around beer, brat, and bitches.

And they're eating powdered hooch? Are they retarded?

This blog has a surprisingly large amount of German content, and surprisingly little Star Wars content.

Huh, I didn't even know you could make alcohol in powdered form. That's genius.
