Well, that's what you get with *scientists* on a mailing list ;-)
Density(SG) and viscosity(thickness) *are* different things. But, most
people think of dense syrup as "thick", and most people have experienced
cold syrup as being "thicker" than hot syrup. It may be tecnically
incorrect, but the mental picture of the "thickness" of syrup with
respect to its temperature is clear.


Hey js, is this #100, or should I post another 99 one-liners to make sure?
