    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Does anybody know what the concentration of quinine is in tonic water?

    I am talking out my ass here, considering I don't have a bottle near me, but shouldn't it say on the label somewhere?

    I've checked several bottles at the grocery store here and none of them say. I was just curious. Thanks for the link. If I ever need quinine, I'll go for the quinidine. As much as I like gin & tonics, I doubt that I can drink 12 quarts worth.

    There is probably not enough to reduce your malaria symptoms. [​IMG] Quinine was used as a tonic which significantly reduces the malaria symptoms; apparently, it does not cure it. I thought I would throw that in for some trivia. Another piece of trivia, the Gin & Tonic drink is the only mixed drink where the alchohol was added to improve the mixer. Most drinks were created where the mixer was added to improve and/or mask the flavor of the alchohol.
