Weed is cheaper than alcohol per hour high at retail prices, but what if I brewed my own alcohol?
I've brewed before, but regrettably I didn't measure the abv of my kilju so I can't calculate $/ml ethanol. Anyone got numbers to share?
How do y'all prefer to get away from indifference, and at what price?
Does anime really work as escapism? I just end up being unable to pay attention.
death seems the easiest tbh

I probably won't respond to anyone, sorry, I just want to know how y'all cope. I'm drunk and stupid rn. Feel free to ban my retarded ass this is a vpn though, so temp ban plz to avoid fucking over others.

Existence wants me dead, so I tell it to go fuck itself. Thats one way to cope.

Pretty drunk.
I take solace in the freedom of not giving a shit.
I'll probably $CRIME-suicide myself sometime, but not today. Today I have cider and crisps!

Existence can go fuck itself, the fuck is this shit? Why this mathematical structure and not another? Tegmark makes more sense by the pint.

I'm posting this in the afternoon, and I'm not going to add any thing of any value, but wth, I was too drunk to respond last night.

This thread is hilarious.

BTW, I work where accident = drug test, so I just either get dizzy or get my heart rate up and do the nos balloon.

That bottle looks like windshield wiper fluid.

25 pounds of sugar will run you around $25. Yeast and yeast accessories are also fairly cheap. Water is cheap. Storage can get a bit pricey depending on what you go for, but a 5 gallon water jug only costs around $10, and has the added bonus of already including the water.

Champagne yeast has the highest alcohol percentage but doesn't taste fantastic at 20%. Thus, 25 pounds of sugar will yield what, 5 pounds of ethanol? That is about 0.759 gallons of pure ethanol for an input cost of about $30 per batch plus around $20 in a single supply cost.

And of course, this isn't factoring in distillation which I don't think is entirely necessary as long as you can boil it on a stove top to get rid of the methanol. In reality I don't think you need that as long as you add some sugar or flavoring after, and that way you end up with some nice 15-20% beer or wine flavored however you want for pretty cheap. Somewhere under 5 gallons of it.

The only problem is the time investment. You'd have to have 2 containers, one to drink from and store your shit and one to ferment the next batch, but overall it is cheaper just to make.

It really is. It sucks that I can't smoke due to the kind of work I do having frequent drug tests, otherwise I'd drop alcohol altogether outside of homebrew and rare social occurrences. If I'm stupid like pot I get a hangover, but that's usually caused by eating too much salty food.

>but what if I brewed my own alcohol?
You could. I've brewed a few times. It's not that cheap unless you brew in bathtub-sized batches or larger. The main thing is you can control the taste and alcohol content after you make the mandatory 2-7 novice shitty batches.

>Does anime really work as escapism? I just end up being unable to pay attention.
Yeah, but nah. It helps many unwind because of the comfy aspects, but it can only do so much, and you have to be in the right mood. I like manga and light novels since I can read a series, stop paying attention to it for six months or a year, and come back to quite an array of new chapters usually (or the occasional disappointment of finding out the series was dropped).

>How do y'all prefer to get away from indifference, and at what price?
I have nothing to do that right now (by choice, not by budget/other factors). I used to vaporize THC concentrates, but you can't pass drug tests that way, and I watched it ruin a lot of (mainly normalfags') lives. I like weed, but I also know I'm the sort who can't just smoke it on the weekends since I get upset/angry very easily and venting (IRL) would just make my situation worse. I've been venting a lot on imageboards lately, but I dislike doing that because it makes anons uncomfy.
