Lake Waves Instantly Turn To Ice Shards As They Push Onshore

December 18, 2017

This is a video from Lake Baikal (the oldest and deepest freshwater lake in the world) in Siberia of waves turning into ice shards as they push their way onshore. The sound they make is crazy, like constantly breaking glass. Obviously, I'm going to go collect these ice shards and use them to make $40 cocktails. "Who's going to buy a $40 cocktail?" Rich people. Plus non-rich people who actually believe me when I tell them Lake Baikal ice shard cocktails are the secret to strong, long-lasting boners. Throw away the blue pill, I'll tell them -- you don't need it. Then I'll collect all the blue pills in the trash and take them myself. They say you're not supposed to take more than one at a time, but I've taken six at once before and I'm fine. "You've had a boner for months." How could you tell? "It's hard to miss." Yeah it is! Wait -- were you just coming on to me? Because I do get fifteen minutes for lunch.

Keep going for the video.

    Very unique, very cool.

    It's called ice heaving and it happens all over the place. This formation with the tiny icycles forming is less common.

    Winter is coming... and I am way into it.

    Watch out for those Lake Baikal humanoids!

  • Jenness

    Here is a video where the ice creeps up in a neighborhood on a lake so fast and it ends up breaking glass sliding doors. Pretty scary!

    I like the "somebody better call somebody". I'm not about to watch again to figure out when that happened.

  • Jenness

    And a bit curse-y too. I do think it's funny that no one knows the danger until it is too late and starting to wreck everything. Hindsight is 20/20

    Yes, shouty woman is very irritating, and seemingly of questionable intelligence. But if you mute it, this video is MUCH better than the posted one.
