Alcohol is one of man’s oldest technologies. Not simply an elixir to alleviate boredom, alcohol has multiple uses. Alcohol can be used as a fire starter, as a weapon in the form of molotov cocktails, as an antiseptic for wounds or to sterilize medical instruments. In certain cases it can be used as lamp fuel, stove fuel or even fuel in vehicles. Previous generations have used it to kill mold, remove stains, as a cough suppressant or even to quiet teething babies.
