Well after loadssh of sherious reshearch I can honeshtly shay that I don't know. But seriously do the bubbles in your pint of Guiness float up the glass or sink downicon_smile_question.gif
Fact: The bubbles ARE going up. It only LOOKS like they're going down. The reason for this optical illusion is the turbulence in the glass after pouring the drink. Dark liquid is flowing down the inside of the glass and rising in the centre giving us this circulation of fluid. It is this dark fluid rippling down the inside of the glass, superimposed on the white froth, that gives the impression that the bubbles are sinking. Look closely and you'll see what I mean.
The next time your landlord/lady asks you to leave the pub on the grounds that you are sloshed, tell him/her that you are actually participating in a shcientific shtudy,
Just got a text off Trev, his ferry crossing has been delayed until 3.00pm because of strong winds, he thinks the curse has something to do with it, methinks it's the Garda trying to keep him off the land icon_smile_big.gif
Gents - this is one POWERFUL curse Zippy puts out.
As many may know, he is hopping across the pond next month for a week of fishing and shopping Bass Pro with me.
Well, I just returned from a weekend fish-in in South Carolina. Carp mostly. By my rough count, over 200 fish were netted from Friday evening thru Sunday afternoon. A friend from Virgina arrived Friday and caught a dozen or so Friday afternoon and and into Saturday morning.
After I arrived, he blanked. I blanked. This morning, the two anglers to our right banked 14 fish to 18lbs and the fella to our left banked 3. We blanked.
My take for the weekend was lots of sun and zero fish. Awk!!!!
Still, the trip was well worth while. Good folks and fun to see others catching so well. Nothing large (as in none 20+) but many doubles. I'll post pics when I get them. Turns out my digital camera never left home.
