I found my way to this website called Foolish Gadgets where one can browse a veritable feast of pointless fun foolishness. (Cable news is running with it’s B-list anchors, premium movie channels think they can get away with showing Psycho III over and over, and, despite the BP disaster dragging on and a billion a day or something being pissed away in Afghanistan, I figure the media silly season is underway.

“Having a nice, cold drink is great especially during a sweltering and hot summer day. However, if you tend to be part of the recycling camp, then you might be interested in bringing home the Cold Boulders Reusable Ice Cubes. As its name implies, you will be able to reuse these dishwasher-safe granite-inspired Cold Boulders over and over again as ice cubes, since they are filled with purified water and will never dilute to make sure your beverage remains as thick as before while remaining chilled and nice. Each $7.99 purchase comes with 8 of these boulders, bringing new meaning to having a drink on the rocks. Too bad for those who have the habit of chewing on ice cubes though.”

Absolutely. Water melting in one's glass & diluting one's libation is just not done.

I read a story a few yrs. back which claimed that W.C. Fields, rather than icing his drinks, used some sort of metal butt-plug type device, originally for hemorrhoid relief, that could be left in the freezer for a few hrs.

No dilution!
