>when you can pull one up, lay a stack of bills on the bar

I don't think this guy knows how to order drinks.

Any bar will have a service only area, with no seating.

nothing about how easy it is to fall off a barstool once you're drunk? Massive usability issue, which Apple barstools will address.

It's a deliberate and rather ingenious design. Once you are too drunk to order more drinks, you simply fall off to make way for the next patron.

In the bars around here the service area is only for wait staff and you will not get served if you stand there.

Why the fuck is this even on here? Isn't this a tech blog? What the fuck do barstools – and who hates them – have to do with anything?

Oh, wait. I get it... It's about drinking. It all makes sense now.

It's obvious this dude doesn't pull trim like I do.

I'll now insert the quote about making lemonade out of lemons...

Reaching over a hot chick to pay/get your drink is the easiest way to start a conversation (and end it with her at breakfast time).

"Excuse my reach...oh, hey there, how's it going tonight?"

It's so fuckin' easy, it's ridiculous.

Yes, Vanilla Dry Ice, you sound like quite the catch.

These are apparently impossible to google image search, but bars have those Pipe things to denote the ordering area.

I would be embarrassed to post this to my 12 Twitter followers, yet somehow it makes the cut for the blog Gruber depends on to feed his family.

Just say excuse me.

That was meant to have an "XD" emoji after the quote. Mr. Macintosh's blog (with comments!) strips out emoji ?!

It has to do with drinking, which lately at least, Grubes has more expertise in than tech. And there's an offhand mention of Trump, which lately, Grubes has more interest in.
