Well then, since I'm at your brain's mercy - here is a listicle on 5 things about Absinthe you might not already know:
1. Drinking absinthe can make you go crazy or kill you.
No entirely true. Absinthe once upon a time gained a bad rep when it was banned internationally (from misinformation and mass hysteria) after a man allegedly killed his entire family from drinking absinthe. But people always leave out the part about 1) him being an alcoholic 2) how much alcohol he was actually drinking (it was evidently, ALL DAY for a FEW DAYS in a row).
