    The Advertiser: 6K gallons of scotch accidentally flushed down drain

    The night shift at a Chivas Brothers distillery screwed up this week and accidentally flushed about 6,000 gallons of Scotch whisky down the drain, according to reports from Scotland. The 80-proof goof happened early Tuesday at a bottling plant in Dumbarton, where workers were cleaning equipment. Instead of purging the wastewater, they instead expelled 18,000 liters of bulk whisky into the local sewage system. "It was like someone turned on a tap, and it just ran straight down the plughole," an "insider" told The Scottish Sun.

    That is close to enough alchohol abuse to warrant some jail time for them...

    I am right there with him. A pinch of sugar and warm the glass and Chivas is not half bad.

    Tequila is for getting drunk. Good tequila is for getting really smashed, fast.

    Whiskey and cognac are for long evenings slowly getting soused whilst still carrying on a conversation or two.

    Never cared much for the taste of whiskey, scotch, and bourbon. Just not my thing. A good sipping tequlia is far from a fast drunk.

    My chosen liquid gold is Wild Turkey Barrel Proof over ice. Tequila was never good for just getting drunk for me, it always had that "mean" component to it - as in, "I mean it, Ima whoop sumone tonight, whether itsa frend er nawt". That is the reason I have not had more than one drink of it at a time since the early 90s.

    Those blokes are lucky they didnt loose there heads over this. Not much of a fan of chivas, but its a shame and a waste half decent spirits.

    Could be worse. Could have been the wrong valve at an oil refinery...
