Tonic Water, the Next Lava Lamp

I’ve been researching tonic lately (hopefully we’ll see the fruits of that labor soon) and found out that tonic water glows under a black light.  Now, I had noticed this in the past (mostly at awful black light, wear white themed frat parties) but never questioned why or what was glowing.  Apparently it’s the quinine in tonic water that does the glowing.  Not only will enough of it help out with malaria (don’t rely on it unless you make your own tonic, today’s tonic doesn’t contain nearly enough quinine to make a difference to the weakest of strains) but it will dazzle and entertain you’re easily entertained guests.  You know, the same kind of guests who are really into things like “Planet Earth” and that magic eye poster you have from when you were 9.
