    This is the ice sculpture created by a Jeep parked at a hospital in Greenville, North Carolina. "I'd hit it." We all know you would, Optimus. "Hey! I don't go around banging just anything." Ahahahhahahhaha, seriously?! Be honest -- how many lemons have you had sex with? ... / Continue →

    These are the ice pancakes recently spotted in the River Dee near Lummels Pool, Birse. Experts suggest the pancakes were formed when pieces of foam froze in swirling eddies, then continued to grow as unfrozen pieces of foam stuck to the ice, and later froze as temperatures dro... / Continue →

    This is what it looks like to shoot boiling water out of a Super Soaker in -41°C (-41.8°F) temperatures. I'm sorry, but that is just too f***ing cold. Any of you live in places that get that cold? Here's what I want you to do. Look outside. What do you see? "Snow." Anyth... / Continue →

    These are a bunch of the different geometric patterns created by artist Simon Beck marching around in the snow of France. How he knows what the design he's creating will look like from above when he can only see it at ground-level is beyond me, but I suspect he does the same t... / Continue →

    This is the third snow-related post in a row. That must be some sort of Geekologie record. One that will definitely won't be going down in the history books and probably won't be remembered by a single person after tomorrow. God willing, I'll drink it out of my memory before... / Continue →

    This is a short video from Sweden of ice crystals beginning to form on a soap bubble in -30°C (-22°F) temperatures. Sure it would be cool to do yourself, but the only experiment you'll see me running when it's that f***ing cold is how long I can stay under the covers. Hit th... / Continue →

    This is a video of a garden hose that was left out in freezing temperatures overnight while coiled up. The next morning its owner uncoiled it, turned on the water, and SURPRISE: got a free pile of cylindrical ice cubes. That's weird because when I did the same thing growing u... / Continue →

    OMG ADAM, IT'S STARTING. IT'S STARTING! This is a video of a GIANT 7.4 cubic km (~1.75 cubic mile) chunk of ice breaking off the Ilulissat glacier in Greenland (note: link has higher res video than I embedded after the jump). It was captured by James Balog as part of his doc... / Continue →

    So allegedly what happened is a a bunch of snowbanks in Russia began to melt, then it got cold again real quick, and they flash-froze into the icy river you see here. But who knows, maybe Santa's elves carved them or something. What I DO know is that I've actually flashed-fre... / Continue →
