How can I separate the two halves of my cocktail shaker?

A few months ago I received a metal cocktail shaker as a gift. The first time I used it with ice, the top and bottom became welded together, presumably because the cold caused the metal to expand. Fast forward to the present -- they're still stuck fast, and I'm sick of gin and tonics. How can I get them apart and get back to mixologizing? [more inside]

1,000,000 year old single malt

I wanted to buy (at some point) a really, really expensive bottle of liquor or wine (no Champagne). The idea was to hold on to it for a very long time until one day something so important happens in my life that I deem it worthy to drink the alcohol in celebration. Any suggestions on what to get?

Types of Drunkenness

I'm looking for sources (all types from literary to scientific; jocose to serious, etc) discussing or detailing the different types of drunken states that alcohol produces (example, it is often said wine makes one more sensitive whilst whiskey makes one more aggressive, etc). I am already familiar with Modern Drunkard Magazine.

Can I drink wine if I make it myself?

What are the liquor laws in New York State? I tried looking on the NYS common law page, but I couldn't understand them. I am 20 years old, and therefore cannot purchase alcohol. If I were to make my own wine using this method, would it be legal? Does the Law cover production and consumption of liquor, or does the "drinking age" just cover the sale of alcohol? I know that it is legal to make small quantities of alcohol for your own personal use, but I don't know about the age thing.

Help me be a more moderate drinker.

What are some tips for moderating one's drinking? I love to drink two, sometimes three, times a week, and it's a positive experience for me when I keep it moderate. For me, moderate = no more than three mixed drinks, no more than half a bottle of wine, no more than three beers. My problem (duh) is that sometimes when I get started I keep drinking. [more inside]
