    Re: Everclear faces Iowa ban

    I think it's pathetic that the state would even consider banning an alcoholic drink because a kid got alcohol poisoning from it. Little secret, ANY alcohol can give you a .5 BAC and alcohol poisoning. Some of the laws in this state are just dumb.

    The .08 law is dumb because they assume my BAC drops back down to 0 at some point.

    "Everclear overconsumption is certainly a major problem at colleges, but such a ban would be entirely unfair to those of us Iowans who responsibly enjoy a glass of jungle juice with our meals each evening."

    I love theonion.

    Upon occasion, the straight-faced manner in which The Onion reports non-existent happenings has resulted in outside parties mistakenly citing Onion stories as real news.

    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    I think everyone already knows that. But, Iowa has tossed around the idea of banning Everclear because of this incident.

    Sadly, there is probably some truth to that.

    Re: Everclear faces Iowa ban

    Hopefully this type of intrusion into your lives is offensive to every college educated individual here. I haven't had Everclear since college, but !@#!@! I don't need the !@##!@#!! government controlling every decision I make!! What next, dictating my health care??? Huh? Oh……………crap!

    But it's based on a REAL story that happened. The only thing fake is the interviews. I even posted the link to the real story....
