Yes I do. I’ll tell you why: Let’s say the computers I was working with had been powerful enough for me to do my experiments in real time. I’m not at all sure that I would have made the discovery! Because the condition under which I was working, on a time-share machine, a few seconds of sound might take me nearly two hours. So the time it took, perhaps specifically the time between experiments, I had to think. These were discrete times: I would generate a sample of a sound that was 20 Hz, with a modulating frequency of 20 Hz and a deviation of 100 Hz. Then I would wait. Then I would listen. Then I would increase to another. If I’d had continuous control, I think I probably would have missed it.

Ritual Black Drink consumption at Cahokia | Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
Because plant parts rarely preserve in archaeological contexts and because preparation of these drinks degrades or destroys the primary plant parts, direct evidence is scarce for the use of these plants to create prehispanic beverages. Fortunately, absorbed organic residue analysis allows identification of methylxanthines preserved in ceramics, permitting researchers to identify the presence of this class of beverage in the past

What does Làirig Dhrù mean ? - the upland of Mar history project
Làirig Dhrù is the hill-pass in the central Cairngorms running between the shoulders of Am Bràigh Riabhach, and Ben Macdui.  Although the name is often applied to the entire route between Braemar, and Coylumbridge - I would argue that any ‘pass’ can really only be the summit of the route and that the name can really only apply to that summit.
