If she had put it down at any other angle, it wouldn't have been nearly so dramatic.

Was she at a social gathering?
Did she intensionally put it down at that angle?
Was the dramatic angle between object and table? object and floor? Object and another person? The angle she obtained in the act of putting it down? Other?
Is the location, time frame, specifics of the gathering, her age relevant?

Was she at a social gathering? no
Did she intensionally put it down at that angle? yes, I imagine so.
Was the dramatic angle between object and table? object and floor? Object and another person? this The angle she obtained in the act of putting it down? Other?
Is the location, time frame, specifics of the gathering, her age relevant? only location.

It = mirror? flooring material? picture? none of these
Angle = horizontal? vertical? neither of these, as John suggested it is more to do with the angle between the object and another person.

When she put it down, did it appear as if she were trying to indicate something about another person? Like if the object in some way resembled an arrow, and she unknowingly (or maybe knowingly) laid it down in such a way that it would "point" to someone...

Did the angle make the object seem to be a part of the person? Like if you set down a hat so that a faraway person seems to be wearing it? Trick photography relevant?

Could "it" actually have been placed at a different angle? Does the changing amount of drama have anything to do with the "meaning" of "it"? Would it have a different meaning if it were at a different angle? Would it have no meaning? Was "it" tangible? Was it a card of some sort?

Does this have anything to do with tarot cards? Or tarot readings?

Could "it" actually have been placed at a different angle? yes Does the changing amount of drama have anything to do with the "meaning" of "it"? not quite sure what you mean, but I don't think so Would it have a different meaning if it were at a different angle? no Would it have no meaning?

Were either of the main people involved an employee of the place where this event happened?
Was it a place that would employ people? Or just some kind of meeting place?

Is the object transparent? reflective? curved in some way? molded to a shape (like a bottle)? flat? blown glass? Is any of this relevant to why having it at a different angle would have been less dramatic?

Is it by any chance a mirror?

Does it have a magnifying effect? Since only part of it is transparent, does it reveal one specific part of the person that is dramatic (e.g. it has a little window in it, through which you can only see someone's left boob)? Does the light refract off it in an important way?

Does the woman work at the location? Or the person to whom the angle is relevant?

By saying that it is close to a restaurant, do you mean that it serves food? Serves beverages? People eat there? People sit around at tables there? Is it a banquet hall? A bar? A coffee shop?

The music that would be played there, would it be a recording? Or played by a live musician(s)? Would it be a prominent feature of what is going on? Or background noise? Dinner music?

Is it a drinking glass? A vase?

By placing it the way she did, was she implying something about the patron? Or showing off for the patron?

Is the glass symmetrical? Was the relevance of the angle... the angle of the handle? something about the glass's horizontal rotation? The way it was or wasn't tipping? the angle it formed with another object or the edge of the bar? The angle that could be seen through the beer? Was the beer ever drunk? spilled? poured/dumped out of the glass?

No problem Noel!

Did the angle it was placed at affect the drinking process in some way? no

Was there an imperfection in the glass? no A brand name? A logo? no, but these are getting closer Was "she" the one who drank the beer? no Would the angle still have been significant if there had been more beer in the glass? Less? If the glass was empty? only this would have made a difference full?

Was the intent of the message to persuade? motivate? influence? instruct? inform? Was it a warning of some kind?

Could he not read the message at all? Did he misread what was written? because of the angle the glass was at? because there was liquid in the glass? that changed how the message looked to him?

Is he a spy of some sort?

What I meant was, was the writing on the bottom text? Written in one direction? And the angle she set it at was to make sure the writing was turned towards him to be right side up? Either right side up from where he was sitting? Or right side up when he was drinking it?

Was it meant to be read by him?

Or was it written in such a way that it was meant to be read by someone else in the bar? Such as someone sitting across from him at the table?

Or was it text at all? Was it a drawing? And when he picked it up to drink out of it, it made a funny image for everyone else at the bar?

Why was it dramatic? Was it accusatory? Seductive? Boastful? Joking? Insulting? Mean?

Did it reveal some sort of secret information? Personal information?

Did it reveal some sort of secret information? yes, I suppose you would say that, although I wouldn't call it 'secret information'. Personal information? not really

When he read the writing: was he glad to read it? Angry? Sad? Puzzled? Amused? Disappointed?

Was the text about him? Her? The bar?

Did they know each other before this event?

Was he upset by information that was new to him? Or upset because she was revealing that she knew some information she shouldn't have known?

Was it something that would only be relevant once he'd finished the beer? Say, "I spit in your beer" or "You're a drunkard"?

"That wasn't beer," or "There was something in your beer?"

Was the writing written or readable upside down, or at some other angle than normal? Was it done with script or letters that look the same when read upside down or through a mirror? Script or letters that appear to change when read in those ways?

"That wasn't beer," or "There was something in your beer?" Neither of these, but the last one is VERY close.

Was the writing written or readable upside down, or at some other angle than normal? no Was it done with script or letters that look the same when read upside down or through a mirror? no Script or letters that appear to change when read in those ways? no

The dramatic angle I think has pretty much been sussed in one of Noel's posts, you just need to figure out what the writing actually said.

"This beer was poisoned"? Yes! Well, close enough for a...

***SPOILER***
This is from an episode of 'The Prisoner' (the episode 'the girl who was death'). The main character goes into a bar and asks for his usual. The bartender puts the beer down on the bar. He picks it up and as he drinks it he gradually reveals the words (one by one) on the bottom of the glass:

You
have
just
been
poisoned

And suddenly there is dramatic music etc. My only problem was that if she had put the glass down at any other angle, the message would have appeared sideways or upside down, and it wouldn't have been nearly so dramatic!

Thanks for puzzling!

Ah, I see what you mean by dramatic, now. The slow reveal as he drank the beer was what I was missing. I was picturing something see-through like Bud Light or something. I take it he was drinking something dark?

Yep, so he couldn't see the words til the level of the drink had dropped below them.

The task would have therefore been much simpler if the glass DID have a handle. Curse you, television!
