Launch Energy Gum Review

Posted in Food on October 15, 2008 by sireatsalot85

I was at the local deppaneur (corner store in Montreal slang) and this new gum caught my eye.
Dubbed Launch, this gum is suppose to pack a 60 mg jolt of caffeine delivered straight to your neurons intramucously (through your gums), for a faster hit of your favorite stimulant.
Launch gum, comes packaged in a tin that resembles the common “bullet” shape of most energy drink cans. Also, like most energy drinks, other than caffeine it also contains , vitamin b6, b12, taurine and the rest of the common ingredients found in these types of drinks.
Unfortunately, after opening the can I noticed that halfway through it was filled with a metal plate, since it only comes packed with 9 measly pieces of gum. Having stupidly dropped one on my way to class, I was this left with 8 of these to try.
Deeply angry with myself, I decided to try one out. Once I started chewing like a champ, the bitterness of caffeine flushed by mouth along with the refreshing taste of peppermint and then BUZZ….the caffeine kicked in less than 5 minutes.
Overall I must say that this product was truly useful in warding off my sleepiness in the library while working on my paper. It seems like a nice thing to have when you require a caffeine kick in places that otherwise will not let you have your precious coffee.

Kuemmerling Krauterlikor Review

Posted in Drinks on October 13, 2008 by sireatsalot85

On my recent trip to Germany, I had the opportunity to purchase a few samplers of the local booze and this is the first one that I decided to try. It goes by the name of Kuemmerling, a herb liquer which I believe is a “digestif” that Germans drink after a large meal.

Kuemmerling also comes in a orange flavoured version, which is available on kuemmerling’s website. ( Just type the name on google and you will be redirected)

The liquid itself is of reddish darkbrown color and upon opening the tiny flask, the odour reminded me of its infamous cousin Jagermeister. Upon taking a sip of the flask, a strong bitter flavour engulfed my mouth, followed by a tinge of sweetness that is kind of like Jagermeister. Although in my personal opinon, the latter tastes a lot better and for my north american tastebuds, it is much more palatable. This herbal liqueur reminded me of the other digestif I had a few years ago which was even worse .

In conclusion for those wanting to get plastered this is not a drink made for that, as you will simply not be able to drink too much of it. Also, the fact that it is a very dark beverage, it most likely contains a lot of congeners. In short ; the more congeners a beverage has, the worse the hangover, but if one wishes to have the digestive effect of mystery herbs and spices by all means sip on it all you want, your stomach will thank you. Cheers

All gone….*shudders*

And it shits out….loneliness

Posted in Uncategorized on October 12, 2008 by sireatsalot85

Unfortunately due to a misunderstanding . We ended up going to 2 separate tim hortons, so it ended up being a quiet night of reflection and me wandering the streets of montreal at night…..while having my …smoke.
It was very smooth , tasty and relaxing.
Overall I ended up having to walk an hour or so to get to the theatre and waited a bit for my buddies so in the mean while I decided to purchase a nice gift for someone . I tried my luck In one of the machines and out popped a transformer. It turns out it’s a decepticon that shits out the car its suppose to embody.


OCB slim review

Posted in Fun, Psychonautism, Random stuff on October 11, 2008 by sireatsalot85

So tonight I am going to go watch a movie and as a result, I have decided to roll myself a nice smoke to accompany the movie. It has been a while I have smoked, so I suppose that this will give me the opportunity to review the OCB rolling papers that I came across during the summer while visiting abroad.

They are OCB slims that come in a box, they come in a roll as opposed to the classic pull-out format.

This format has a lot of advantages since if one would like to roll a bigger smoke they can customise their length for that smooth tobacco flavour. *Cough*, my lungs are hurting already in anticipation

In terms of transparency they seem similar to the regular ocb:

I had to roll myself a very tiny “cigarette” due to my lack of financial funds at the moment as can be seen below:

Its sad being a starving student, but anyway off I go…..

High Humidity…..

Posted in Life on October 11, 2008 by sireatsalot85
It seems since I got my new dehumidifier , the moisture problem in my room has subsided.

Can you believe that it managed to take out 20 liters of water in less than than one week . I haven’t coughed or sneezed since we got it, I suppose that all of this time it seems i had allergies , sleepless nights and now i know who the culprit was…..High Humidity and mold.

Mold and high humidity affects health in numerous ways , although most are not fatal, getting a dehumidifier will certainly improve ones quality of life. I sleep better , my room doesn’t smell musty…AND my bed doesn’t feel like someone urinated on it…..SUCCESS.

All this thanks to our new Simplicity 230$ Dehumidifier, which is very simple to use.

Here are some of its stats

Capacity: 50 Pints per Day
Tank Capacity; 11 Pints


-3 in 1, is also a heater and fan

Performance…..More than satisfied
