    Teen Drinks Liquid Nitrogen Cocktail, Has Stomach Removed

    The more you do just about anything, the bigger a tolerance you build up. Whether that's watching way too much television and eventually only being able to stand a higher quality of programming, playing too many JRPGs and not being able to deal with fate, destiny, and a very large amount of grind anymore, or drinking alcohol and requiring not only more of it to get drunk, but a new variety of it to keep from getting bored. English teen Gabby Scanlon succumbed to the latter, and drank a cocktail containing liquid nitrogen. She was, as one might've expected, rushed to the hospital afterward and had her stomach removed. Her entire stomach.

    This Massive Cocktail Chart is Maddeningly Complex in Its Alcoholic Beauty [Infographic]

    Speaking as Geekosystem's resident booze snob, I love a good cocktail. However, I have a really hard time keeping recipes straight which is why this enormous chart from Pop Chart Labs would really come in handy. On it, you can find just about everything you need to know in order to make 68 drinks, all coming from 40 kinds of booze, a collection of mixers and garnishes. It even tells you the preferred glass to serve it in. The only thing this chart won't do for you is provide the mysterious alchemical talent needed to transmogrify a good drink into a great one, but might justify the purchase of some arcane items. All the better.

    Alien Brain Hemorrhage Cocktail

    The above image does not depict a shot glass full of red Kool-Aid that was left in a very warm garage for a few months, but a drink intentionally made to look insane. Dubbed the "Alien Brain Hemorrhage," the cocktail consists of half a shot glass full of peach schnapps, with Bailey's Irish Cream poured on top. Once the shot is almost full, a small amount of blue curacao is added, and once that settles, a small splash of grenadine tops the drink off. Head on past the break to check out a video of the concoction.

    We've covered a good deal of video game related drinks, but this pair of Portal 2 cocktails created by James Dance, the proprietor of the bar/arcade Loading, are some eye-catching treats. Relying on Blue Curacao and Orangina for the color (with vodka and rum for the kick), this handsome pair is sure to teleport your tastebuds to new heights. Or get you plastered.

    Geekosystem Chats With Your Video Game Bartenders, The Drunken Moogle

    Games and alcohol are two of humankind's oldest pastimes. When homo sapiens first emerged from the simian gene pool over 250 thousand years ago, we'd toss our spears around every so often, drunk on some derivative of fermented yeast. Today, the essentials remain the same. But there's more than the occasional game of wasted dodgeball; now we've found ourselves also in a digital age of gaming. And in such a video game age, 21 year-old college students Mitch Hutts and Travis Broyles of The Drunken Moogle have arrived to curate the world of alcohol. Their website, which regularly collects and invents alcoholic drink recipes based on video games, has been popularly received on Tumblr and beyond, recently serving such gems as the Starcraft II-themed "Zerg Rush" (six shots of Fernet Blanca, Hot n' Sweet, Baileys Irish Cream, and Tabasco sauce in succession, because who attacks with just one Zergling?) and "The Kirby" (cherry jello shot with Malibu, pink lemonade, Bacardi, and blackberry brandy). Geekosystem had the opportunity to chat with Mitch and Travis about the origin of their idea, drunk gaming, and their favorite concoctions.
