COOL FACT! Humans and Fruit flies have an extremely similar behaviour to ethanol (alcohol)! During my bachelor thesis I examined the ethanol tolerance of Fruit flies (Drosophila Melanogaster) after they had been sleep deprived. So check out this video to see their reaction to 70% ethanol vapour! 1.They get hyperactive 2.Then they start walking backwards 3.They pass out on their back and 4. When you put them water vapour they wake up again :-) For this research project I would like to thank my supervisor Dr.Giorgio Gilestro Irini
