    Only buy shine from an old-timer. It will be the finest alcohol you have ever consumed.

    Correlation does not imply causation, but it does waggle its eyebrows suggestively and gesture furtively while mouthing "look over there"

    going blind on moonshine started when people used to use old car radiators as part of there cooling unit on there still. they would run the boiled alcohol through the copper tubing to condense if back to moonshine. it would sit inside the thump keg. if you don't know what a thump keg is you shouldn't be drinking moon shine anyway.

    The "risk" of blindness is only if the alcoholic content comes from methanol as opposed to ethanol, what you're drinking normally. Methanol is metabolized in the human body into formaldehyde, which is what causes the blindness. So if billy joe bob knows what he's doing when making the moonshine, you're all good. Drink up!!!

    Hahaha guess if you're gonna get drunk or make yourself blind, might as well kill two birds with one stone.
