Asked by: Gus Mitchell, Hemel Hempstead Whisky is predominantly water and ethanol.

Why does a drop of water make whisky taste better?

One end of the ethanol molecule is hydrophilic (water-loving) and the other hydrophobic (water-hating). As a result, the ethanol tends to form a thin layer at the surface of the whisky, with the hydrophobic ends pointing up into the air. Elsewhere in the tipple, it clumps together, forming a so-called micelle, with the hydrophilic ends shielding the other parts of the molecule from the water.

Many of the flavours in whisky dissolve better in ethanol, and therefore get locked away in the micelles. How Animals Behave When We Aren’t Looking By Artist Julien Tabet. Julien Tabet is a 21-year-old French artist who creates incredible photo manipulations of animals.

Tricking and treating has a history

As a scholar of myth and religion in popular culture, I look at Halloween with particular interest – especially the ways in which today’s Halloween tradition came to evolve. A pre-Christian tradition Many practices associated with Halloween have origins in the pre-Christian, or pagan, religion of the Celts, the original inhabitants of the British Isles, as well as parts of France and Spain. The Celts held a feast called Samhain – a celebration of the harvest, the end of summer and the turn of the year. Samhain was separated by six months from Beltane, an observance of the beginning of summer, which took place on May 1 and is now known as May Day. The Celts believed that the veil between the living and the dead was thinner during this time, and that spirits of the dead could walk on Earth. Later influences. Thinking Humanity - Photos.
