You Can't Handle the Cheese!

Oh, you've seen live webcams. Some of them weren't even porn...there were baby pandas to watch, Swiss Alps to check weather conditions on, even live executions in dangerous parts of the world that you really wish you hadn't seen. But you've never seen this kind of live webcam before. It's so suspenseful...so shocking...that you might just not be able to handle this much excitement.

Maybe you enjoy a nice glass of wine. But the hassle! Opening the bottle (screw cap for ease, of course), preparing the glassware, all that strenuous pouring...it's exhausting. Well now, if you live in the UK, you can skip all of that and go straight to drinking your low-level wine!

The Fine Sport of Wine-Tasting

Posted by perle0 on 2007-03-06 13:27:57 (3574 views)

[Editorial]
[England]
The wine societies of Oxford and Cambridge universities are lobbying to have wine tasting ratified by their schools as an official sport. Participation in such official sports gain the students prestige and special privileges, so there's a lot at stake for the students in this decision of whether or not to consider wine-tasting a sport.

That's right...wine-tasting as sport. After all, groups from the two schools meet each year to compete, and one school comes away the winner. Doesn't that constitute a sport?

Nanotechnology Looms: Wine Programming and More

Imagine the wine purchase of the future: you hand over your money (or your credit card, or your bar code tattoo), and receive a bottle of clear, tasteless, odorless liquid. When you're ready to drink it, you program the elements you want in your beverage, and wave your microwave transmitter over the bottle. Instantly, infinitesimallly small nano-capsules filled with a variety of substances release their contents into the water, creating a made-to-order wine with exactly 13.7% alcohol, the flavor of red wine but the color of white (to prevent stains), and the perfect mix of flavors you prefer in wine. They even release substances to create the perfect nose and ratchet up the levels of healthy polyphenols.

Welcome to the brave new world of nanotechnology.

The Wine Diet--No, Really!

Posted by perle0 on 2006-11-29 01:54:32 (3425 views)

[News]
[England]
A researcher in England named Roger Corder is suggesting that a healthy diet should include fresh foods, especially fruits, reasonable amounts of other foods (even fatty ones), a glass or two of red wine a day, and regular consumption of dark chocolate. Finally--a diet we can all get behind!

Despite what you might think, this diet is not the product of wish fulfillment, but rather of research into longevity in Europe. Doctors have noticed that people die younger in countries that focus on beer and liquor consumption, while the longest-lived Europeans are the French. Investigating further, Professor Corder found that people living in the mountains of Sardinia, an area with the highest concentration of centenarians in Europe, ate neither a low-fat diet nor the traditional "Mediterranean diet" of seafood and olive oil. They did, however, drink wine on a regular basis.

Large Wine Glasses Create Unwilling Alcoholics?

Did you ever order a glass of wine, and receive a small fishbowl containing roughly a third of a bottle? And did you then think, "Hey, it's okay...I only had one glass of wine!" If so, you're not alone--and you could be setting yourself up for problems later on.

A British clinic specializing in treating addictions warns that the trend towards larger wine glasses may lead people to drink more than they realize, making it easier for them to develop into alcoholics.

Global Warming Helps British Wines

Posted by perle0 on 2006-06-13 12:03:07 (3158 views)

[News]
[England]
As with every disaster, global warming does have one good side-effect: the increasingly warmer temperatures make for much better wines from England's little-known wine industry.

While England has in recent years had good results with white wine, whose grapes can thrive in cooler temperatures, the climate didn't have the sun and warmth to make good red wines. That's changing as temperatures rise worldwide, bringing the English countryside longer, warmer summers that are resulting in decent English red wines for the first time.

Britain's Private Cellars: A Wine-Lover's Dream

Posted by perle0 on 2006-04-20 23:20:10 (2527 views)

[News]
[England]
You may be rightfully proud of your wine cellar. But you're only one person, right? You have only your lifetime in which to buy and store wine, and at least some of what you lay down today will be left at the mercy of your heirs, unless you go on quite a bender on the ol' death bed.

This is not a problem for some of the great private cellars of Britain. The government alone has a stash of 40,000 bottles drawn on for state banquets and other forms of hospitality, spending about 100,000 British pounds a year on wine for future generations of monarchs, leaders, and diplomats to enjoy. Other private cellars belong to groups with a long-established tradition, making them eminently suitable to buying wine now for its members to enjoy in 20 or 30 years.

A scientist in the UK has proved it...the deeper the dimple at the bottom of the wine bottle, the more expensive the wine. There's even a mathematical formula to represent the correlation....
