Check the threads and you'll find a wealth of information on making your own. Also, keep in mind that the fountains weren't nearly as common 100+ years ago as a well-poured carafe of ice water. According to some reports, there was great prestige awarded to accomplished pouring artists. Not only is a carafe much less expensive, but I think pouring is an art that should developed, again.

For our manhood. For our absinthe. For America.

As much as that ability has atrophied so far I wonder if I'll be able to breathe and watch television at the same time when I'm 50.

Guys can't multi-task worth a damn. We can't pour and watch a glass louche at the same time especially if there's a pretty girl in the room.

I have a #1 4-spout fountain and a Lemercier fountain and have not had any breakage or damage problems with either. But, then again, I am very careful with both. They are, however, a bit cumbersome to clean.
Are the commercial fountains as fragile as they appear?

We'll know that Absinthe has become "too" popular when...
Speaking of that sort of thing, I happened to be at (against my will and better judgment) the Mall of America yesterday. There's a liquor store there now so I poked my head in and saw Lucid on the top shelf. That's just weird. Well, if they're selling absinthe at the MOA, maybe it's not ALL bad.
