The bottle is then riddled, so that the lees settles in the neck of the wine bottle...
Manual riddling is still done for Prestige Cuvées in Champagne... mechanised riddling equipment (a gyropalette) is used instead.
I don't want to seem like a stalker, here, but... they were conducting a study to determine whether or not menstruating women were involuntarily compelled by their hormones to turn themselves into Little Red Riding Hood, and they just phrased the title poorly???I think I could sit here typing question marks without stopping for the next two weeks, and it still wouldn't be enough question marks.(Maybe it's a joke study, or a desperate bid for an Ignobel. That happens, right?)
That is a very plausible explanation, Emma, and therefore unacceptable to the judges.See also "Lady in Red: Hormonal Predictors of Women's Clothing Choices", "Ovulatory shifts in human female ornamentation: near ovulation, women dress to impress", and a lot of other equally shite research.
1. Lesbians/bisexual women don't exist?2. Or don't ovulate?3. Or, Jesus Christ, don't invest in "ornamentation" behaviors?4. Red is an objectively "sexy" color, is it?5. What about red sweatpants?6. Maybe those ladies are wearing red on period days for reasons other than the promotion of female sexiness, what do you think?7. I saw a paper in the sidebar called "Human Mate Guarding," but I didn't click on it.Some extras: ??????????????????????
menstruating women were involuntarily compelled by their hormones to turn themselves into Little Red Riding HoodIt's more about ovulation than menstruation. In one landmark paper in this literature, Tracey and Beall measured "peak red-wearing" (or peak red-shirt-wearing, to be precise), and declared that this coincided with the high point of fertility in their subjects' cycles... except it didn't (an earlier Evo-Psychologist had screwed up the facts on ovulation dates, and Tracey and Beall had tried too hard to get their observations to fit that earlier author's misunderstanding).Apparently post-menopausal women stop wearing red or trying to look sexy. 4. Red is an objectively "sexy" color, is it?If you believe the endless stream of crappy little studies coming out of Elliot's laboratory, Indeed it is!Thank you for all the question marks. We will try not to use them all at once.
My Grandma, what a big Monte Carlo matrix you have!""All the better to simulate you with, my Dear!"
I suspect Chris De Burgh is the puppet master behind all of these studies.
For the record, while I think it's slightly cheesy, I really dig "Don't Pay the Ferryman"- song makes me want to chuck funny dice all afternoon long.
song makes me want to chuck funny dice all afternoon long.I am not familiar with that euphemism.
