Even though they're often called koala bears, koalas are actually part of the marsupial family.

The Science Of Beer And Cavitation #SaturdayMorningCartoons
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/06/20/the-science-of-beer-and-cavitation-saturdaymorningcartoons/

You know when you tap the head of an open beer bottle and beer bubbles everywhere? Maki Naro explains the science behind it! via popsci

What neither the perpetrator nor the mark are aware is that they have just demonstrated a phenomenon known as cavitation. When liquid, such as our beer, undergoes a rapid change in pressure, it spurs the formation of vapor cavities (hence the name) in low pressure areas. At the 66th Annual Meeting of the American Physical Society Division of Fluid Dynamics, researchers from the Carlos III University of Madrid, Spain and Universite Pierre et Marie Curie, Institut Jean le Rond d’Alembert, France demonstrated how this series of expansion-compression waves can cause the rapid degasification of beer.

I just tried to send some photos from my phone via email but hit the 5mb limit after one photo. There is no option to compress a photo in Gallery or G+ photo apps. This seems to be something that most could find useful. I don't want another photo app. #android #google #photo

Good quality and value. Richmond is a great village but parking is hard to come by. This pub is perfectly located off the common with parking for you to enjoy a great value quality pub meal and pint then a stroll thought the common along the Thames. The pub has a warm atmosphere and friendly staff. The food was simple but very good.

If you are in a rush with a play to catch, then give this a miss as the service is a bit slow. But, if you are looking for a nice well priced restaurant for a great meal with slow but very friendly service I can definitely recommend this place. I would like to come back for a more relaxed meal to really enjoy what the menu has to offer.

We popped in on our way to Oxford and we both were very impressed with the service and food. That was one of the best burgers I've had, meaty and full of flavour. The chicken burger with chorizo was delicious as well.
