A Random Wednesday Conversation Starter

In the interests of broadening the horizons, I'm going to diversify this weekly feature a bit, and start including conversation starters that are simple questions, as opposed to the "either/or" thing I've done up 'til now. I'll still do the either/or thing, but I'll take an occasional different approach. So here's the first new type of Wednesday Conversation Starter:

Why does ice clinking against the side of a glass sound better in lemonade than it does in any other beverage on the planet?


Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness said...

I would argue it's a 'cuba libre', that ice sounds the best in. Rum, cola, limejuice and ice. MMMMMboy that's goo drinkin'

SK Waller said...

Personally, I think it sounds best in a glass of scotch. Seriously.

M. D. Jackson said...

I have to agree with SK on this one.

Roger Owen Green said...

Carly Simon said it best: "Anticipation." You like lemonade, so the ice you associate with the pleasure of the lemonade. For the others, it is likely the same. Mine would be some mixed drink as well.

But it has to be a real glass, not a plastic cup.

Here's a question for YOU:

Sela Ward Set to Join 'CSI: NY' This Fall - On the heels of Melina Kanakaredes' exit from CSI: NY, Sela Ward is set to join the cast.

Do you watch this show? (I don't)
Would the cast change have any effect on you watching the show?

Well, I would disagree with you, Kelly, and the four above commenters. I posit that, were we to do the appropriate, randomized and double-blind controlled testing necessary, we would discover that it is not actually possible to tell the difference between the sound of ice cubes clnking in different beverages with any frequency of success significantly more than what random guessing would provide. But, hey, that's just me.

Paul: Way to completely miss the spirit of things. Jeez.

Roger: I used to watch CSI:NY, but I just got bored of the entire CSI concept a while back, and I don't even watch CSI:Miami anymore. But I have to admit that I may tune in a bit just to see Sela Ward!
