Alcohols *are* polar, dipsh*t. And because you do this stuff for a living, you should also know that not all alcohols are soluble in water, hence my adding the hex- abbreviation. (Alcohols are soluble when paired with hydrocarbons consisting of one to five carbons. 6 [hex-] and up carbons result in insolubility). Ethyl alcohol has two carbons in its hydrocarbon and I am aware of that, but I figured there was some additive that caused the water and ethanol to more easily separate; I don`t know the proof of the whiskey so I can`t say for sure.

"Not just physics. The whiskey, as an alcohol functional group, has an attached hydrocarbon of at least 6 (hex-) carbons or more, resulting in the alcohol not being soluble in water. Chemically, that`s why they don`t mix. Overmann"

I hate it when people use the web to spread misinformation just to try and make themselves look clever. "drinking" alcohol is ethanol, which is completely miscible with water, Regardless, alcohol is non-polar hydrophilic. If alcohol was not water soluble, you would not have any alcoholic drinks apart from 100% ethanol would you.

Before you flame me, do some homework - I do this stuff for a living.

"anything not soluble in water...
even if it IS denser than water, just switch the water teh the bottom... right?"

I suppose so. If you want the water on top, something less dense than water. If you want the water on bottom, something more dense than water. He didn`t mention it so I didn`t consider it, but yes, you`re right.

True, just naything not water soluble. It`s a good trick, also, he covered one glass completely, then slid teh card away a little.

You could remove it entirely, but then it would be hard to soereate the glasses afterwards, and you`ll be wanting to drink your celebratory whiskey.

try it here. They were using Jack Daniels anyways. and thats as american as it gets. i have a bottle of Jack what i hate about it is when you first open it up the booze is all at the top and only at the bottom was the flavor. I didn`t know this at first so i thought jack just tasted like pure poo


cool trick

I was going to actually comment about that. If she didn`t have any makeup on she`d look like a kemo patient. (No offense intended) She`s disgusting.

When I go to England now I`m so gonna try this in the pubs :D

Old trick. AS said before though, you have to be a mug to take on bar bets. No one is going to bet you they can do something, then when you take the bet turn round and say "Actually i cant do it, you win."

I had some whiskey, but I drank it. Same with the water. :-D
Anyways, not a bad trick. Best to do it with drunk people, though; sober people might remember that water is heavier than alcohol.
