Piet Hein Drink Cooler Balls
So we just came across these Piet Hein drink cooling balls, and we're torn. Oh, we're not torn about the product itself, which is a stainless steel ball filled with liquid you store in your freezer to cool down drinks without watering them down. Nope, that seems pretty straightforward, especially since the balls are made with stainless steel and won't change the flavor of the liquid in any way.
The problem we're having is which movie to quote as we talk about it. The front runners are Glengarry Glen Ross (You know what it takes to cool down a drink? It takes BRASS BALLS to cool down a drink!) and Dune (Piet Hein reminds us too much of the planetologist Liet Kynes). We're leaning toward the whole Glengarry angle, but while we're soul searching, check out the Piet Hein coolers at Unica Home (via Uncrate).

Dude, these things are size of an ice cube? What happens if you swallowed it by accident? As that sounds really prone to happening considering the fact that we'll be druuuuuuuuuuuuunk.
Is it all smooth edged so we can just poop it out when we do?
I'll take my watered down drink, thanks. Better idea, if you run a bar, buy multiple ice cube trays, have a tray of whiskey cubes, gin cubes, etc!
