Cooooool!: Red-Hot Nickel Ball Melts Through Ice Block

From geekology, This is a worthwhile video of a red-hot ball of nickel quickly melting its way through a block of ice from the same guy who brought us the red-hot nickel in a cup of water video. The sound effects aren't as rad (but are still pretty cool) in this one, but it's awesome to watch how fast the ball melts through the ice. It really got me thinking -- the next time you're faced with a driveway full of snow, instead of shoveling that snow, why not produce an Indiana Jones sized ball of red-hot nickel and roll it off the roof of your garage? BOOM -- snow melted. "That's ridiculous." Ridiculous or genius? "Ridiculous." Ridiculous or genius? "Ridiculous." Haters gonna hate!

Oh good. I've been wondering what to do with all those red-hot nickel balls I've got lying around.

I want to drop one on a frozen pond.
