Aussie beer brewed for space tourists

They may well be ahead of the times. In face, quite a bit ahead.  Sydney's 4 Pines Brewing Company has created a beer optimized for microgravity consumption. It's intended for eventual consumption by space tourists. According to the company, the beer will be tested soon in Florida. This from 4 Pines:

"In space your whole entire face, including your tongue, swells," says Jaron. "It becomes a lot harder to taste things in space."
"With all the swelling all of your taste buds become almost a bit numb, in a way," he says.
"Astronauts have been known for years to throw handfuls of salt and bottles on Tabasco sauce on their meals..."
"On earth when you burp, due to the gravity that's acting on your stomach, the gas and the liquid separate," he says.
"However in space... the gas and the liquid can both come up during a burp." 

Chinese row over synchronized swimming goldfish

Yet another bizarre thing going on in China that we in the West had no idea about:  synchronized swimming goldfish. It's believed the trick is performed by using magnets and animal rights groups in China are up in arms, asking TV stations not the air the trick. The magician who performs the trick, Fu Yandong, denies he harms the fish. Mr Fu releases six goldfish into a tank and gets them to swim together.

"If I used magnets, the fish would stick together," he told a CCTV news.
"Some people say I use electricity or high technology. They can say what they want, but the fish are safe," he added.
