I hate bars that charge a "premium" for martinis.  Yeah, it may have more alcohol (quantity, not proof), but a shaken martini is still less labor intensive than (for instance) muddling mint or basil or combining six ingredients for a lesser cocktail.

Weird ice found on Uranus?  Thanks, but I'll have my martini smooth.

Amazing the stuff you can do with a several dozen atoms, 4 forces in nature, and a bunch of natural laws... Hehe, Universes... They are some crazy weird things.

Yeah, I even tried incognito mode and turning off javascript. The assholery is strong with that site.

Curious. Did you go to the original greenlit link or the better NY Times one that replaced it?

Sad trombone sound.

Hint: "Slaugherhouse 5" and "Cat's Cradle" were two different books.

Clearly there's a lot of pressure inside Uranus.

The cost of labor is not a factor in the price of a martini.  They charge more because people will pay more.  That's it.

NYT: The superionic ice melted into a liquid at about 8,500 degrees Fahrenheit.

I'm not putting that in my drink.

The difference between a shaken martini and a shaken baby is that sometimes a shaken baby survives.

If you shake martinis, close your bar!

With free protons flowing through it like a liquid, which is the new and different and really cool part.

On another note, $30-35 for a diamond anvil assembly? SOLD!

1. Who drinks a martini with ice in it? (Oh, and freezer gin FTW)

2. FTFA: a pressure more than a million times that of Earth's atmosphere. Those conditions exist inside Uranus [...] One of my first winters driving on ice, as a callow youth, I exercised poor judgement and ended up sliding through an intersection on a red light. Backwards. Those conditions definitely existed inside my anus.

Transparent aluminum already exists. Sapphire is aluminum oxide.
