Romulan Ale? More like Romulan Ass...

Seriously. That stuff is foul. Don’t let it’s pretty packaging or friendly bright blue color fool you. There’s a reason the Federation banned this shit.

Now, to be fair, I’m the sort that thinks most energy drinks taste like candy-flavored battery acid, so perhaps you might have better results. But, daaaa-yum. Fair warning, and all that. I was seriously considering licking the table to rid myself of the taste.

I’ll also add that this was the non-alcoholic, energy drink incarnation of Romulan Ale. There is ALSO a very, very alcoholic drink by the same name, consisting of Bacardi rum, Everclear alcohol, and Blue Curaçao. That sounds like a mighty fine time, even if it may leave you with a Worf-sized headache afterward.

Trust me, the headache would still be better than the taste of Romulan balls. *shudder*

    There is also a 3rd varient (though it’s green not blue) where you take a pint of lager and mix in a shot of Blue Curaçao.

    Which came from the infamous (and sadly no longer existing) star-trek pub in London.

    Geez, I must have downed like 4 or 5 of those at ConVersion… they were no better and no worse than normal energy drinks, I do however, severly regret the price. Can’t argue with the Battery Acid thing though, they really, really do taste like candy flavored battery acid, but man have I been hooked for far too long.

    Now you are just begging me to ask how do you know what Romulan balls taste like? Same goes with battery acid?

    But that’s true… Energy drinks generally taste like something I could easily imagine being battery acid with a flavor of something like that. But I seriosly don’t even want to think about Romulan balls… Gee… Thanks for the image… Yuck.

    You must take care with Romulan Ale. It eats styrofoam cups. So drink fast. Does the energy drink do this too? Is it really Battery acid in cute packaging?

    In fairness, there -is- a Romulan Ale that’s actually not half bad. It is, appropriately enough, blue beer. It’s bottled as a novelty by Miller Genuine Draft.

    Sounds an awful lot like the Mêlée Island pirates’ recipe for grog. Which also included battery acid.

    He was to say “what a load of crap!” just for the sake of irony, but I’ll refrain

    Just saw the Mythbusters episode mentioned Saturday…

    This isn’t a famous physics ‘thought experiment’, it’s the famous ‘monkey gun’ *demonstration*. It’s done regularly in high school and college classes (in the college demo I saw they used compressed air and the full width of the lecture hall). Not that it’s not fun to see the Mythbusters do things like this. I liked it when they reproduced Galileo’s rolling-masses experiment with an automobile and a hot-wheel car, but the monkey-gun demo really is more dramatic with a stuffed monkey….

    Hee, at a convention I go to regularly, there is a Klingon Party, despite it not being a Scifi con. They apaprently hit *all* the San Fran cons, just to have a party.

    Klingon booze… strong, strong stuff. One of their better brews is 50% alcohol, and is served in tumblers. Yike. Damn tasty, tho.

    Drinkable, yes. It’s beer that tastes like beer.

    It is not, however, beer that tastes like -good- beer. It’s not bad, but it’s nothing to write home about.

    Trying to read the expression on the picture…

    I think it’s “Must not puke while smiling” 😉

    Seriously: I am glad we’re not having that one over here…
