There Can Be Only One: 44-Pound Red Hot Cylinder Versus A Frozen Lake

January 25, 2017


This is a video of the guy behind the Hydraulic Press Youtube channel branching out with a new channel called Beyond The Press, where he's joined by a lady friend to find out whether a 20kg (~44 pound) red-hot steel cylinder will melt through a foot of ice on a frozen lake. SPOILER: yes, but just barely. It doesn't actually fall all the way through on its own, he pokes it a couple times before it eventually falls to the bottom of the lake just a few feet below. But perhaps even more importantly: that's not what I expected the Hydraulic Press guy to look like having only heard his voice prior. It just goes to show, you can never judge a book by its cover. Unless of course that book has cover art of a shirtless hunk on horseback with a women in flimsy negligee draped across his lap, in which case you know that shit's gonna be RED HOT. Draw a bath and light my aromatherapy candles around the tub for me, will you?

Keep going for the video while I take a screencap of these two lovebirds and print it out to add to my wall collage of relationship goals.

Thanks to Ian, who informed me he's only going to make ice fishing holes this way from now on.
