A Drink to Remember
Ice ahoy! The Gin & Titonic is a recyclable, food-safe, synthetic rubber tray that makes four Titanic ocean liners and four icebergs. After you get past the clever name, it's hard to say which is more disturbing: seeing this genuinely unsinkable version of the doomed vessel bobbing in your glass, or watching it melt.
Gin, tonic, lime, lifeboats, Kate Winslett, and Leonardo DiCaprio are not included. Ice is guaranteed unsinkable unless made from heavy water.
Are you curious...?
There was no system for tracking icebergs until after the Titanic collided with one in April 1912. The US Navy started patrolling the sea lanes for ice after that high-profile incident. The International Ice Patrol was formed in 1913 and published its first records in 1921. You'd think that icebergs would have ceased to be a hazard after the first earth-monitoring satellites were launched, but often-stormy weather conditions in the icy latitudes made visual detection from space haphazard. Satellites didn't start looking for icebergs with radar until 2002. We have a much better handle on the formation and travels of icebergs today, which is a good thing now that climate change is increasing their size and frequency.
