    Hoo, boy just about says it all. As a scientist....what do you think

    Wow! That caused my magnetic dipoles to oscillate wildly. North, south,
    north, south. I have cousin who thinks like that.

    Is this a joke or does he mean it seriously? I've read it a couple of
    times and I'm still not sure.

    Oh, my. This is the proper reaction to reading this article, I think:

    Quite serious, apparently. There's a follow-up link at the top of
    the page, where he relents a bit and concedes that it is not wine
    "cells" but molecules, or even atoms. A wine atom, now that's a
    fascinating concept. Mark, what do you think its atomic weight might
    be? Should we call it 'vinium'?

    But seriously, is there even a tiny shred of evidence for the
    effect, never mind the idiotic explanation? Anybody observe something
    like that? I sure haven't, but then I don't have a "very educated,
    albeit big, Italian nose" (sic).

    Well, we know that wine is slightly lighter than water, so I think that
    a wine atom should have a mass of ~17 AMU. Vinium has a nice ring to
    it, unless one wanted to go Greek, in which case oenogen might work ;-)

    I doubt that anyone has taken such claims seriously enough to study
    them, but I can say that what we know about olfaction would not support
    such a possible effect since the binding of molecules to oflactory
    receptors shouldn't be affected by the direction of stirring.

    I always wondered why there was no such thing as The Southern Lights.

    There is. Aurora Australis. I guess fewer people live close to its
    range, hence it's not as popular.

    That was one of the more flabbergasting (among a rich selection of them)
    statements in that article. Anyone who simply Googles "Southern Lights"
    or Aurora Australis would know better.

    *sigh*

    and "wine cells"...

    I am in the middle of developing some electromagnetic devices, and I
    WISH that North was more than SOUTH :-)

    In the same vein, let me quote an ad in an airplane magazine for
    something called a Life Balance Band:

    "...contains a hologram which is embedded with negative ions that react
    positively to re-balance your bio-electric frequencies..." I'll spare
    you the rest. At 15 GBP on special, I reckon the margin to be 90%.
