Thumbs up Oil,water,gas and Vodka!

3km vodka pipeline found
From correspondents in Vilnius, Lithuania
11dec04

LITHUANIAN border guards have discovered a three-kilometre-long hose that was being used to smuggle vodka from Belarus.

The plastic hose, which started just across the border with Belarus, was buried between two and 10 centimetres beneath the ground.

It ran beneath several roads, along a riverbed and ended in the backyard of a private house on the Lithuanian side of the border in Eisiskes.

The State Border Guard said today its officers searched several other houses, but no arrests were made.

It's the fourth such pipeline discovered since 2002 and the longest.


Vodka, which is much cheaper in Belarus, is constantly being smuggled across the border and distributed in mostly rural areas. A small bottle of legally imported vodka costs about 16 euros ($28), but homemade vodka smuggled from Belarus typically sells for four euros ($7) a bottle.

Full marks for effort!

what color do you like to drink it with?

On the rocks or straight up, or even straight out of the bottle. When I'm mixing it with prescription pills, the yellow ones, all the way. Vodka makes the pills work faster and creates a nice little high.

I'm not into popping pills just yet. I think you start that a little later in life right? When I start, I'm going to do it my color coordinating with what I'm wearing.

That's not a bad idea. I know Joan Crawford had flasks that matched her outfits, too, so you'd be following a true legend.

I didn't really get too much into the pills scene until after Flloyd croaked. So, mid to late 50's, you figure your body has lasted that long, so what the hell, go out in style. And 30 years later, I'm still going strong.
