The finger will cut down on your aerodynamics.

The Jager won't.

Congrats!

My boss's put a 3 bottler like that one in the bar when I was there. They loved the stuff and spent many, MANY hours after their daytime shifts were over. The machine was quite popular for a while (then the bar took a downslide - as did many others when the economy crapped out several years ago).

So ... Is it true you poop green after heavy consumption?

Yes, it will be difficult to shift and brake with only one finger.

Perhaps. With my luck they'll all be mediums or something. I'm havinga contest on another forum for part of my winnings and don't have all my winners there yet.

Thanks, as to green poo I've never consumed enough at one sitting to know.

What's with giving the finger in every photo? I simply don't get it.

the machine cools it down so when you open the tap - it's already cold - forget what temperature is set on there. Therefore if you like it cooler, you don't water it down by putting it into a shaker of ice.

I bet they were pictures taken to show his friends or other contestant entrants that he won! He is not flipping us off, he is sticking to the losers.

Photos were taken with another Forum in mind. It is that forums "salute" if you will. I really should have a blue hula hoop in there as well but I don't own on.

The machine keeps the Jager at -6 degrees. Cold Jager is good Jager. Warm Jager is just nasty.
When I have a bottle in the house it lives in the freezer for just that reason.
