What’s the right way to drink whiskey?

Whether you like to drink your whiskey neat, on the rocks or with water, is up to you. But science can help us understand what happens when you add water. For the most part it will have a negative impact on the flavor. But if whiskey overpowers you. Go ahead, and add those rocks. #addwater #drinks #glasses #guaiacol #huckberry #ontherocks #science #whiskey

Peaks Rocks Glasses by Huckberry

Within 4.6m years the Y chromosome might disappear. Unlike all other chromosomes, Y chromosomes are only ever present as a single copy, passed from fathers to their sons. So what does that mean? The demise of men? Not quite. Some species already lost their Y chromosomes completely. And males and females are both still necessary for reproduction. In these cases the SRY master switch gene that determines genetic maleness has moved to a different chromosome. And the interesting thing about humans is that while the Y chromosome is needed for normal human reproduction, many of the genes it carries are not necessary if you use genetic engineering. Even though that means same-sex female couples or infertile men will be able to conceive. It seems highly unlikely that fertile humans would just stop reproducing naturally. #humanrace #men #science #ychromosome
