    So, last night I was out doing deliveries. At one of my stops, I noticed a sealed large bag of ice in the garbage can by the door. I go in and say to the cashier," You know that someone's dumped a full bag of ice in the garbage can outside your door?"

    "Yeah, I did it," he responds.

    "You did it?"

    "Yeah."

    "Why?"

    " A guy came in here and bought it, took it home and came back 20 minutes later. He asked if he could exchange it for another bag because the ice was too hard."

    .....

    ..

    It sounds like there should ba a punchline in there somewhere.
    With that being said, fact is stranger than fiction.
    So, I take it that you got a free bag of ice?

    So. I was thinking about it carefully and came to one conclusion: The guy wanted SOFT ICE! :D ;)

    Actually hard ice occurs when it's been frozen a long time and all the air bubbles are pulled/pushed out. It stays cold the longest. Up in the North Pole, it is Blue Colored, and is stronger than steal,the hardness of ice at -70 C is 6, which is about the same as quartz . Hitting an Iceberg made of this stuff will tear any ship apart. :)

    At least you didn't have to worry about banging your head on the upper no so watertight bulkheads. "Ouch, I dare say!". :sadno:

    You would feel a right deckhead if you did that!

    (And, just in case people think I'm being rude, that's the correct naval term for a ceiling ;))
