"There in wine is found the great generalization: all life is fermentation."    — Buy at Amazon.comRichard P. Feynman (1918-88).
"A poet once said 'The whole universe is in a glass of wine'. We will probably never know in what sense he meant that, for poets do not write to be understood. But it is true that if we look at a glass closely enough we see the entire universe. There are the things of physics: the twisting liquid which evaporates depending on the wind and weather, the reflections in the glass, and our imaginations adds the atoms. The glass is a distillation of the Earth's rocks, and in its composition we see the secret of the universe's age, and the evolution of the stars. What strange array of chemicals are there in the wine? How did they come to be? There are the ferments, the enzymes, the substrates, and the products. There in wine is found the great generalization: all life is fermentation. Nobody can discover the chemistry of wine without discovering, as did Louis Pasteur, the cause of much disease. How vivid is the claret, pressing its existence into the consciousness that watches it! If our small minds, for some convenience, divide this glass of wine, this universe, into parts — physics, biology, geology, astronomy, psychology, and so on — remember that Nature does not know it! So let us put it all back together, not forgetting ultimately what it is for. Let it give us one more final pleasure: drink it and forget it all !"    — Buy at Amazon.comRichard P. Feynman (1918-88).

"Man announces he will quit drinking by 2050: A Sydney man has set an ambitious target to phase out his alcohol consumption within the next 28 years, as part of an impressive plan to improve his health. The program will see Greg, 73, continue to drink as normal before reducing consumption in 2049 when he turns 101. Taylor said it was important not to rush the process: It's not realistic to transition to zero alcohol overnight. This requires a phased approach, he said, adding that whisky drinkers were the real problem. Greg is lobbying for additional investments in beer to maintain beer supply-chain security. Greg will be able to bring forward drinking credits earned from the days he hasn't drunk over the past forty years, enabling him to reach net-zero but keep drinking. To assist with the transition, he has bought a second beer fridge which he describes as the 'capture and storage' method. He is also investing in direct alcohol extraction from blood technology."
