The L'Absinthe Rend Fou people have made me appreciate the good ol' days with Dr O even more…

There's no need to bring that up. His broken record is entertaining in its own right.

One would imagine that, in the big scheme of things, it is far less important when a lowly Hausgemachter makes a coloring mistake than when a professional chemist misses his chop.gif target by 100 mg/Kg. Especially when his "misses" coincide with his marketing strategies…

But then, what would the Forum be without the Teddie Boys…?

I particularly enjoy the usual suspects trying to "immunize" the newbies against me.

Goddess forbid that they read what I say and go:"… hey, wait a minute…" and exercise some critical thinking.

BTW, sorry for the double post, not intentional.

Yeah, when he assumed all of the chop.gif present in essential oils would transfer, he made an incorrect assumption. Given that estimate wasn't arrived at through measuring, though, his qualifications as a chemist were irrelevant.

Let me get this straight - when you fuck up, you should stick to your story for as long as possible, because otherwise someone might harp on your original fuck-up or claim sinister motives for your changed opinion? Is that the underlying subtext?

Figures. The only thing that doesn't fit the picture is you admitting to a colouring mistake.

Uhm - Dr. O, "critical thinking" is usually something you apply to your own thinking, not that of others wink.gif. I don't think we need lessons from you on that.

Here's a question to ponder Dr O:
Do you think the process of extraction of essential oils is functionally identical to the distillation of absinthe?

First, my esteemed Monsieur Oxy, I will tell you why I am not the right person to answer your question.

I have NO chemistry background.

Ever since absinthe, though, I have tried to learn. Unlike the usual run of teddie bears, who have no idea of what they are talking about. There's some good coming of this thread, they may learn something.

Regarding your specific question, the answer is no. Extracting essencial oils of, for example, eucaliptus, is not functionally identical to the distillation of absinthe.

That was not the gist of the question (but thanks for dodging). I'll rephrase: do you think distillation of (amonst others) macerated Artemisia absinthium delivers the same chemical compounds from the A.a. into an absinthe distillate as essential oil extraction of A.a. does into the essential oil?

And I'll rephrase myself: what the fuck is an English major like you paraphraseing chemistry stuff?

"…delivering the same chemicals…" blah, blah, blah…

Who are you and Oxy parroting for?

You might also want to ponder the meaning of the words "fractional distillation"…

Oh, c'mon, Oxy… how much chemistry you want me learn…

Absinthe was CREATED by a humble country doctor, using the herbs around him, and the alcohol he could distill.

Many, MANY years later, some people (like Pernod and Ted Breaux) will forget that and decide to make money out of Nature's bounty.

Fine, their deal. Not for all of us, but still respectable.
