    It can cause drugs like effects if not taken in the right measures.

    Ma-a-a-a-a-an how cool does that sound?

    Interesting video, David. Thanks.

    Hello Everyone:
    I just watched the video and was very interested since my wife is from central asia. She told me that they only drank soma cold and it was very sweet. There was a fellow that came around the neighborhoods with a trailer with cold soma for sale. It cost about 5 cents a glass and all the kids would drink it since it was really really sweet and cold. All the kids would beg their parents for enough money to buy soma. My wife said everyone drank it since there was no pop at that time during the soviet era. She had never heard of it being served hot. She said in her country no one drank it hot. Thinking about drinking soma brings back good memories of her childhood. She can't remember if they just loved the taste or maybe addicted to soma. She hasn't seen soma sold for many years in her country.
    Just thought I would bring a different perspective to the famous drink soma.
    Have a great day!

    Two things I really want to try in this lifetime, Absinthe and Soma.
    There is no higher religion than Truth.

    I read somewhere that Soma is similar to Mead.
