It´s very nesecerry in some of the dodgy night clubs I visit..

I wonder if it´s viable for mining , or using it as a fuel source..

I sat here for like a good 5 minutes trying to think up a joke about how you guys are horrible people for acting all cheerful about this discovery while the comet obviously needs help because of his alcoholism. Maybe he went through a bad breakup with another comet and he's living out of his car right now. Maybe he just lost his job and his verbally abusive girlfriend kicked him out of the house while calling him a loser. Or maybe he just likes to party with 500 bottles of wine every night. But I'm not that funny.

Wait....does that not mean life was by proxy just discovered? Alcohol and sugar? Alcohol is a byproduct of yeast here on earth when it occurs naturally.

It's not the only method, just the most efficient way for us. According to this chemical process I found, I could speculate blindly about the type of atmosphere that might produce it naturally. Maybe like that ancestor of Neptune someone was talking about.
