"Icing" — or "getting iced" — is a drinking game that’s rapidly gaining popularity amongst office workers, tech and media types, and college students. The rules are simple: If a person sees a Smirnoff Ice, he or she must get down on one knee and chug it, unless they happen to be carrying their own Smirnoff, in which case they can "ice block," or refract the punishment back onto the attacker.
"A bro is a college-age person," he says. "They like to hang out. A lot of them drink beer and wear backwards baseball caps. A lot of them drive SUVs and listen to Dave Matthews Band."
Bankers, too, have embraced the fratty fad: An ice attack was recently reported at Goldman Sachs (GS, Fortune 500), and Fortune has learned of icings at Florida-based investment bank Raymond James (RJF) and New York City hedge fund D.E. Shaw.”

With all due respect to the Post, I feel like they’re burying the lead. People get groped in public in NYC. I’d posit that if you haven’t been touched on the subway in a way that makes you feel uncomfortable, you’re not a real New Yorker. But how often do people get broken down in public without words? Forced to stare the intensity of the human experience in the face? Go see this!

Abramovic sits at a table in silence, and museum guests can sit across from her and stare.
