<i.You ain't seen nothing until you've snorted Peppermint Snapps on the bar through a drinking straw . . . not saying i know anything about this practice . . .

Ah . . . Nederland, circa 1970's.

As I recall, we would duck out of school during the morning break, dash down the block to the local kneipe, knock back a liter of Düssel Alt with a shot glass of Schnapps floating in it, then dash back to school, just in time für die Stunde der Mathematik. Never tried it through the nose, though. Think it would have helped my grades in calculus?

Ah . . . Düsseldorf, 1964-65.
