    I had some booze in the trunk of the car that I forgot about for awhile (Rum, Schnapps, Vodka, Smirnoff Ice). It's August in Chicago, and pretty hot out, and my car is parked on the street, and it's a black car, haha. Needless to say, I'm sure this stuff was just roasting for a week or so. Am I screwed? Or does alcohol pretty much stay good?

    What'll do you think will happen if you drink bad alcohol? Your judgment abilities will get impaired?

    I've had some Remy Martin XO that was in a trunk for a little over a week. It was awful, completely ruined it. I imagine you won't be able to taste the difference on the cheap stuff though.

    Define "cheap." It's pretty run of the mill I think, Bacardi, Smirnoff, etc.

    Are you, by chance, an alcoholic?
