Gruber the Booger:
Big day for Gruber.

Start with a couple of posts that are clearly libel, defaming the President as a white supremacist.

Trump has repeatedly condemned racism, the KKK, white supremacists and neo-nazis.

John Gruber is 100% guilty of libel today.

Then end the day with alcohol. Very fitting for Gruber.

Holy shit Gruber, no.

No, no, no.

Actually I agree with him. The key here is a (as in one) "large" ice cube. Less surface area compared to multiple but smaller ice cubes in aggregate means it melts slower. If it melts slower, you are more likely to finish the drink before it's noticeably diluted.

Gruber the Booger:
Drink the drink you want to drink.

You want a drink neat? You want a drink on the rocks? You want a drink that comes with crazy straw and an umbrella and a slice of pineapple in a coconut on fire served by a topless waitress?

Who am I to judge other that Gruber is a douchebag of the highest order.

not that hard:
The way to dilute is just to add a few drops of water. why overcomplicate this shit?

@Gruber the Booger:
The standard for libel for a public figure is *extremely* high.

Anyway, Trump’s a piece of shit. Are we going to waste time arguing over the texture?

The problem with the one, large rock is that it doesn't just dilute, it lowers the temperature, which masks flavor. Which is fine if that's what you're after - but don't pretend to be a whisky or whiskey connoisseur and go around putting ice cubes in your drink.
