Shouldn't this absinthe be doing something for me?!

Question: Shouldn't this absinthe be doing something for me!?
I have bought Kubler absinthe from a liquor store down the street from me!. I've taken it and prepared it the way everyone knows they should prepare absinthe (pour absinthe over sugar cubes, light cubes on fire, slowly drop water on the cubes to produce a cloudy white drink)!. I've always heard that absinthe does SOMETHING to you, but I have not experienced anything out of ordinary drunkeness!. Am I doing something wrong!? Is there any way to enhance my experience!? Tips and answers, please!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

stuff of movies!
it's mostly a good story which had it's roots in the French bohemian (artist) culture!. the one ingredient Thujone, present in very minor quantities, was thought to have a psychedelic effect!. it's mostly in the head though, meaning if you believe firmly enough, you'll "experience" something!.
this, the "ceremony" about "preparing" it (down to a special glass and an Absinthe spoon), and the fact it goes cloudy when you add ice or water, makes it perfect for poseurs ( a la sitting at the banks of the Seine and discussing the troubles of this world) !.
a good Rye or Scotch is much better!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!. and the headache will be a lot less!! if you overdo!.

this is an old myth stemming from cheaper absinthes having been adulterated with toxins (like methanol) over a century ago

it's an excellent example from history of an unruly mob acting foolishly with legislation for everyone !.!.!. too many examples of the perils of a mob mentality in society alasWww@FoodAQ@Com

Real, genuine, absinthe, I mean the type that wants you to cut off your own ear, is not to be had at any price at any place!.
