So many poisons... so little scorpion.

Step B:  The stimuli
Deciding which beverage to share with my stingered little friend (by friend I mean "angry little bastard who wants desperately to hurt me).  Now that I think about it, from now on I'll be referring to the scorpion as a woman.
    Maker's Mark (fine bourbon whiskey that kicks the Jack's butt) had the highest alcohol content (45%), but I still haven't opened the bottle and I just couldn't bring myself to crack the seal.  Instead I settled on the amaretto, which had an alcohol content of a mere 21%.  The vodka in the previous experiment had 41%, so I'm unsure if the amaretto will be strong enough.

Hey, baby.  Can I buy you a drink?
