    OMG how can you guys call Smirnoff Red decont vodka :

    You need at least Smirnoff black or absolute (as said by directhex - good taste mate!). Now thats quality vodka!! you do realise the only reason you're getting read errors is beacuse the drive is drunk. I cant read after that much vodka either

    Smirnoff? Absolut??? Are you kidding me?

    Stoli is acceptable and I'd drink Absolut in a pinch, but you are all forgetting about Kettel One!!!! I like it more than Gray Goose, personally. mmmmm

    stoli is so HARSH though. i mean really, you need to be russian president or something to drink that stuff without choking. It's got a harsh, rough flavour. I appreciate the smoothness of Absolut...

    We've had "Coke and Computers".

    We've now got "Vodka and Hard Drives".

    Can I suggest your next line of extreme testing? How about "Sledgehammers and Monitors"?
