People who want a drink will drink almost anything. I was in Greensboro, NC at the Overseas Replacement Depot and guys used to go down town and buy moonshine. I didn't drink at the time but tasted some of it. Most of it tasted to me like dirty socks smell.

I don't know whether the guys really liked it or it tasted better because they thought they were getting away with something.

And the funny thing is, they could have gone to the Officer's Club and gotten good liquor.
