lol those are exactly the arguments that Israelis give. I actually pretty much only drink soda water in europe, and that I drink basically luke warm. but I can go through easily 2 kilos of ice a day in the summer in the states, and 1.5 liters of diet coke. but I always love it when you ask for ice and they give you one little cube. and then you ask for more, and they give you another, and again, and again, and again..... Even before I made it to the US to observe the strange custom of filling a glass with ice, then adding the liquid, I used to like more than one ice cube in my drinks in the summer. My dad would look at my three ice cubes bobbing in my glass, horrified, as though I were about to catch my death.
