Who worries about club soda getting diluted?

It is obvious who has been following the Steubenville rape case from the beginning and who has just read reaction of the reaction to the sentencing. Ugh.

Isn't ice just a filler to add volume and keeping the drink cold is secondary, or so it seems with the amount of ice most places give.

I would say if the no ice is that important it doesn't make sense one would "always forget" to stipulate this important non-standard request.

I don't really disagree with you that the default -- which is in line with the preferences of most people -- would be with ice. I just wasn't sure your explanation fit. Doesn't the with "any drink with AND" rule really mean thatmixed drinks always get ice?

And to your question: that's kind of hard to answer, because I'm not sure I've ever asked a bartender for club soda shog[1].gif. . .

I suspect you're right about the rinky-dink insurance companies - that's why I said it's hard to prove the negative. But I also think that's why a lot of the states shift the burden to the driver to maintain proof of insurance.

Hmmm. In VA we get "license and registration" in a Republican accent. No insurance. Anyway, you can provide proof but had cancelled it months before.

Please to tell what is an "Republican accent." I would like to adopt one at times. On the same topic I would also like to be able to emulate a Dem one so that info would also be appreciated.

Well, in Europe, for one. No ice unless you ask.

I'm ok with a 1/2" of ice at the top to keep the drink cold, but this ice rammed all the way to the top of the glass is bullshit. 3 sips and its empty. Club soda is free refills, but its annoying to have to ask over and over.

Yes, its a filler.

Who said I was in a bar? I've never done that. It was at a table over lunch.

But even with a gin and tonic, for instance, too much ice and the drink tastes like shit after a minute or two.

How so? I haven't seen any of the sentancing/reactions so I don't know what they are overreacting too.

People who believe that they are "in to fashion" but really just wear the same thing as everyone else.  (Skinny slevedge jeans that stop above the ankle, color 8 long wings, tight fitting tattersall/plaid/checkered button-down shirts from J. Crew, well manicured beard or other type of hipster facial hair, treat apple products as fashion accessories rather than a communication device)

 

Perhaps I am hanging out in the wrong forum if these things don't fit my taste.

 

However, my understanding was always that "fashion" is an expression of individuality or personal taste, not an attempt to fit in with all the other trendy posers.

 

Just because you buy all your clothes at J. Crew doesn't mean that you are "in to fashion", it means that you are a trendy douche bag that is insecure and is trying to fit in to make yourself comfortable.

 

When lady gaga wore that outfit made of raw meat, that was fashion in my opinion.  Not anything I would ever wear, but at least it was an original idea.  She may have done it just to get attention, but at least she wasn't copying a bunch of other people or conforming to the group norms.

You don't understand fashion.

Unfortunately, J.Crew has a meat dress for F/W2013.

I should have written that better. Plain club soda and plain tonic are basically considered highball drinks (highball being the medium tall/standard size glass) or AND drinks, and any highball drink is served on the rocks. Well, just about any. So its basically par for the course for most bartenders. You ever ordered a glass of tonic? Same shit.

Ah, Europe. GO BACK TO YOUR SOCIALIST HELLHOLE, COMMIE!

Again, this is more common practice. You get a glass, you stuff that motherfucker with ice. Helps the bar cut down on costs and becomes common practice after doing it so often.

Just be glad you're not into suits, else you'd have to have 'Manton's 10 rules to looking just like everyone' else tattooed on your chest.

I used to have to wear a suit to work every day.  While everyone else was also wearing a suit, there is still room to express individuality.  Suit pattern, tie, shoes, ect.

This is entirely possible.  So than is what I ranted about really fashion after all?

 

Edit: also, I'm not saying one has to try to stand out or draw attention to themselves, but they shouldn't try to emulate everyone else and conform to the latest fashion trends.
