Do they know something we don't??

Crazy picture of some Afgan guy showing off a monster cluster of grapes. Maybe if this damn war ever ends we can plant some grape vines over there and see what comes of it! After all didn't the original vinifera come from the mid-east? Maybe we can find the real Jesus Juice!

More than that, Afghanistan is one of the earliest places to drink wine. The last batch of wine officially produced in Afghanistan was in 1979, when the Taliban rolled in and burned the vineyards.

You can still find Afghani wine floating around, but it sucks.
