Pretty cool!, though all of the scene cutting makes me wonder if this really works.

i cant see why the water doesnt go out of the top glass? there must be a hole at the right side of the glasses.

Well, I think it's true just because whisky (alcohol) is lighter than water, so if u leave a tiny space on the borders of the cups (@00:28), gravity (has suction) will do the rest.

Well, that's my idea... don't really now if I got it right! ;)

The density of water is higher, so it sinks. It pushes the whiskey to the top glass, because the whiskey has nowhere else to go. It's a cool experiment, and you can do it yourself. Just like this one: http://www.snotr.com/video/3794

Try it, it's pretty cool.

#6 Yep, basically you got it right. It works on a siphon principle and the exposed area is so small that the surface tension of both fluids keep them from just leaking out.

Stop at 0:52
look at the right side of the card, its not really sealed between the glas. so the water can push and the whiskey gets down. 8-)

it looks cool i guess. but i would never use johnny walker whiskey as an experiment. end of discussion.

Doesn't work very well. Diffusion makes the fluids mix considerably, there's probably at least 10% whiskey in the water and vice-versa.

Hold on, hold on! How do I get from step 0:52 to step 0:53? How do I get the top glass off without spilling the booz? :S

#3 saw you comment diddent twig it till the end ...you deserve you +1 and i think yours will go on to make history at least i hope well deserved , and #7 ya just like that one its all about surface tension and fluid dynamics i never seen that one before but now that some one mentions it i see the tiny gap he leaves clever thow

question... does whiskey have the same taste as before the experiment u_u ?

(or how to waste alcohol) O:)

This is just a science experiment,
If you calculate the dense of water and alchol you see that alchol is lighter then water.
