When I got married back in the 50's a friend brought us 3 liters of 198
proof alcohol from the chem lab.  No matter how much fruit juice we cut
it with, we stacked up people like cord wood at the reception. There
were tales of liquid oxygen for ice cubes and having all the water in a
shot of scotch or bourbon adhering to the Oxy, leaving you with pure
booze.  Never quite figured how you could drink anything that cold.
