    A LAKE FULL OF VODKA
    A LAKE has been transformed from freshwater to 30 per cent vodka after a leak from a nearby distillery.
    Farmers and workers from Wielkopolska. in in Poland rushed to fill their boots with the brew - three times the strength of wine. A 71-year-old woman, who lives near Lake Bracholinskie, said: "If God doesn't help, everyone will be a drunkard with only a hole where the lake was."

    I wonder what this will do to the eco-system. Pickled-Fish anyone?

    hmm. one tabloid and (in google) one polish newspaper.
    I'd need this confirmed to believe that it's not just a "lol dumb pollak story"

    A 30° lake? The distillery would need fucking huge near-100° tanks to get the content so high.

    The amounts of Wodka you'll need to fill even a small lake for 30 percent is huge, let alone if it's a fairly sized lake,
    so i'll doubt if this story isn't made up.

    The villagers are probably just pissed off after they drank all that shitty tasting lake water and nothing happened.

    ..not even a buzz,

    They said it was 30% vodka, not 30% alcohol. So that means that 30% of the lake is 40% vodka, making the actual ratio of alcohol to water much lower (A little over 10%)
