Well, given that the guy from Party Down is in Parks and Recreation now, I guess I have to put aside my arguably irrational hate of The Office-type shows and give it a shot.
Portlandia can suck it, though. It's as funny as SNL is.
When I did labwork I once had to clean a lot of lab glassware with 96% ethanol. Thinking 'meh, it's just alcohol, and I'm cleaning stuff just like I do all the time with acetone, so why bother doing this in a proper fumehood', I splash quite a bit of ethanol around. Five minutes later, I notice that I've got an annoying headache, my face feels flushed, and I'm feeling a bit woozy. Getting drunk by inhalation is far less pleasant than getting drunk using alcohol orally.
Apparently, you were doing it wrong. Adding pure oxygen to ethanol: What Could Possibly Go Wrong?
We did have an oxygen/natural gas setup for welding quartz tubes. Shame I didn't think of that.
Later at the steakhouse ...
"A round of scotch .. in liquid form."
"You don't need to specify that."
"You'd be surprised."
Allegedly one can huff the alcohol gas at the top of those five gallon buckets of pizza dough.
