Beer poured into lemonade sinks quickly in the same way, but the bubbles that push up from the bottom in this case pass through the lemonade, which contains no surfactants, and pop quickly when they reach the surface. By the time enough beer has reached the top, the drink has settled down and little fizz is left. PS: Does lemonade make you burp more than ginger beer?

Shake one, stir the other, then pour the martini into two separate glasses. What will I see? Not a lot, except two exquisite cocktails, but you may – just may – be able to taste the difference. Ideally you’ll need to recruit a volunteer for a blind tasting – don’t tell them which is which. What’s going on?

The membranes that keep separate the contents of the various compartments inside a cell are essentially two layers of slippery fat molecules or lipids. Chill these membranes and the molecules get more sticky, making the membranes less flexible. Bananas adjust the composition of their membranes to give the right degree of membrane fluidity for the temperature at which they normally grow. They do this by varying the amount of unsaturated fatty acids in the membrane lipids: the greater the level of unsaturated fatty acid, the more fluid the membrane at a given temperature.
