what will they think of next?

I know someone who enjoys sniffing isopropyl alcohol straight from the bottle, not huffing but sniffing like perfume. They say they love the smell, that they don't get a high but it's like smelling a favorite perfume. Is this bad for them? I've never heard of this, have any of you? I'm interested in any information anyone may have on this.

Anti-depressants and the quest for Zen

How do chemicals (alcohol and anti-depressant medication) impact meditation? I am wondering if taking anti-depressants would impacts one's ability to meditate? I know dreams are impacted by taking anti-depressants, so does that mean that vivid dreaming (under the influence of seritonin re-uptake inhibitors) has no spiritual meaning whatsoever? (obviously those who believe in lucid dreaming should address this question). Please shed some light (even if just anecdotally) on the impact of taking these medications on one's ability to still the mind. [more inside]

Which beers are similar to Kwak?

I've never been a beer person, but a friend recently introduced me to a Belgian brew called Kwak, and I'm a fan. Unfortunately, few bars have Kwak on tap. Can any of you beer connoisseurs out there recommend similar beers - sweet and high in alcohol content? I'm generally not big on dark lagers or stouts.
