    So, as a non-drinker, I'm confused...

    Apparently, prolonged exposure to this stuff can damage your skin. So why in the world would you want to ingest the stuff?

    It's so sweet when it hits your lips.

    I dunno. Maybe to wash out the taste of cigarette smoke?

    Don't forget the hooker spit. :-X

    I'm more curious as to why the compresses were soaked in vodka. I mean, I know she's Russian, but they can't be that bad over there, can they? Did they think there was some sort of benefit to soaking them in vodka outside of a potential buzz?

    Because alcohol eases the pain.
