Is tequila an upper?

I am in an argument with my friend who claims tequila is somehow a stimulant or upper. I think this is ludicrous and all alcohol is a depressant. I am trying to prove her wrong via the internets but all the sources I can find are completely unsubstantiated crap. Is there any reputable source that will settle this preposterous argument?

Agave is my enemy

When I eat or drink more than a bite's worth of anything with agave or agave syrup in it, including tequila, I get confused, irritable, and light headed. I see spots and get tunnel vision and I often get a buzzing noise in my head. I feel like I'm on the short road to passing out. When it's over I'm headache-y and exhausted. WTH? [more inside]

Comedy Skit About Tequila

Some time ago a colleague (now left the firm) sent me an mp3 file of a comedy skit about drinking different types of alcohol from the point of view of the "stomach" of the person drinking. It ended with the person drinking "tequila" and the voice over had some very funny Mexican-type dialogs. My Googling skills have failed me. Can someone recall this comedy skit and where I might find it? Cheers :-)

I wanna sell booze.

I'm curious what it would take to make and sell a bottle of booze commercially. A new tequila or vodka for instance. What would it take to have my own bottle for sale in Albertson's (etc...) nationwide. I know Sammy Hagar wanted his own tequila and now has it, and I know some guy started Skyy vodka. Now, Sammy is clearly a $$$$$-onaire, and for all I know, so was the Skyy guy before he started. Does it take a million bucks? Or can I start small for $10,000? What kind of barriers to entry are there? Legality issues? Initial production? Production scalability? Any info would be appreciated.

As a burgeoning tequila snob, I have two questions: 1) What are your favorite tequilas (especially, let's say, moderately priced ones) and why? Second question inside. [more inside]
