Next Puzzle: Two men are served identical drinks at a bar. One lives, but the other dies. Why?

I'm so confused by all the posts, it doesn't help that I have a cold and taking drugs ... I might as well hazard a guess:

Although both drinks were poisoned, the man who died actually choked on a piece of ice in the drink, not from the poison.

1. Did one man have olives in his drink and the other didn't?

2. Were they identical drinks?

3. Was one drink poisoned after the other?

Nope.

All answers... are in the puzzle itself, for your questions. No, Yes, No. Identical drinks.

Did the men know the drinks were poisoned?

Nope.

Did one man have the antidote in his mouth?

Ohh, interesting! But no.

I'm not sure if this was asked before?  Was the poison in the ice cube?  And if so did the dead man take longer to drink his drink so the ice melted and released the poison?  (probably completely random...but worth a try)

That's actually the answer. Good job~

Did each drink have the same amount of poison?

... IDENTICAL DRINKS.

Next puzzle, this one is easy.

How could a baby fall out of a forty-story building onto the ground and live?

Congrats. The baby did fall out of the first floor.

Acting on an anonymous phone call, the police raid a house to arrest a suspected murderer. They don't know what he looks like but they know his name is Bob and that he is inside the house. The police bust in on a construction worker, a taxi driver, a mechanic and a fireman all playing poker. Without hesitation or communication of any kind, they immediately arrest the fireman. How do they know they've got their man?
