    Default Mexican Scientists Turn Tequilla Into Diamonds (Alert Sammy!)

    Man, I love Mexico more each day:

    http://www.physorg.com/news145255770.html

    The key to the surprising discovery is tequila's ratio of hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon, which lies within the "diamond growth region." The resulting diamond films could have inexpensive commercial applications as electrical insulators, say researchers Javier Morales, Luis Miguel Apátiga, and Víctor Manuel Castaño from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (Morales is also with Nuevo León´s Autonomous University).

    Originally, the scientists were experimenting with creating diamonds from organic solutions such as acetone, ethanol, and methanol. They found that diluting ethanol in water resulted in high quality diamond films. The scientists then noticed that the ideal compound of 40 percent ethanol and 60 percent water was similar to the proportion used in tequila.

    "To dissipate any doubts, one morning on the way to the lab I bought a pocket-size bottle of cheap white tequila and we did some tests," Apátiga said. "We were in doubt over whether the great amount of chemicals present in tequila, other than water and ethanol, would contaminate or obstruct the process, it turned out to be not so. The results were amazing, same as with the ethanol and water compound, we obtained almost spherical shaped diamonds of nanometric size. There is no doubt; tequila has the exact proportion of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen atoms necessary to form diamonds."

    Science is cool.
    "Nothing is ever what it seems but everything is exactly what it is." - B. Banzai

    The last time I bought a bottle of Tequila for scientific experimentation purposes, I woke up in the Lake County jail with a broken nose.

    left for dead anyway But did you hear the guy who left her to ...um...attach herself to the crapper won the lottery TWICE in the past year.... he'll probably spend it all on those machines where you try to catch a stuffed animal with a little crane.

    Are you guys like sitting at the same computer in two different chairs taking turns typing? Or is HH on the couch on his laptop and you're in the chair on you're laptop and you're posting to each other?

    It just cracks me up whenever I see you two posting minutes apart from each other. And I mean that in good natured fun, of course.
