  13. Fire does nothing to the cirtus peel, no carbonize no nothing. Whole thing about using the flamed peel comes up from disco era, when everthing had to be colorfull, burning and funky. So the idea of using it was just about to make your guests like "wow, what was that that" ..

  24. Since your stuff is being hijacked left and right, you should consider watermarking your videos in the lower third with your YouTube channel name.

  25. will you make a video on molecular kitchen kaviar eggs? i came up with an idea using grenadine "kaviar" in a tequila sunrise or other more fruity cocktails that would harmonize from bubbles with a purer taste. sounds a lot like bubble tea but i really liked the feeling of the bubbles popping in my mouth

  26. Hey man, this site ripped your video and reuploaded it. Hope you can do something about it; that shit aint right.

  27. Thnks you for this great writing. I’m trying to figure out best green tea brand. I already tested most brands available on the market. I actually think {Twinings Jasmine Green Tea|Yogi antioxidant super teas|Numi organic jasmine green tea|Traditional Medicinals Organic Ginger Te may be the best one. Can you reveal, which brand is the best to you?
