12/08/2006: "Backwash Experiments"
This one is especially for Kate... but its entertainment value is high so I'll share it with everybody.
Our friends* at Cockeyed labs have done another experiment, this time to see if backwash can be prevented and which beverage containers are worse for backwash. They used unsweetened cool-aid crystals to dye their mouth, and conducted a few experiments. The results are interesting, but the commentary is where the real fun lies.
