Default Uranium Glass and beer?



just been to visit my father. he's a collector of glass containing uranium
salts.

He displays his glass under UV so that it glows green. Now, he carries a
small UV "penlight" so he can check glass he may find in 2nd hand shops etc.
Whilst sat in the pub we noticed that the real ale we were drinking would
fluoresce if we shone the UV light into the beer. We checked it was not the
glass by shining the light through the top of the glass sans beer. It
appears to be the exact same frequency of green light being emitted from
something in the beer.

Any ideas what it could be? It happens with many types of beer...

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing?
Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God?

A whole new meaning to the term "hot plate"...

I've got a whole bunch of silver quarters that have very little
of Thomas still embossed in them. No doubt used in high school
in investigating half life.

If the hop content makes beer glow,then all beers would glow, and they
don`t, by the same token not all beers seem to glow.

Oh, Are you also the original posters helper of some sort
or have you also been checking the beers?

I would gather it would need a certain amount of hops
to make the glow bright enough to see well.

Not all beers have the same amount of hops right, and
not all beers have the 'best' hops either.

Reread the simple single sentence of the post you are commenting on.
Does that logic elude you?

I am guessing that it doesn't and you just like to read what you typed.
