I don't always waste time surfing the InterWebs on Friday afternoons, but when I do, I often end up at recipe sites. And it's true, what the tweet that sent me here said. This is the best dumb recipe evah! How to make ice cubes! The comments are good too.

In case you were wondering, boiling water is hot. Let's be careful out there. Don't miss the video attached to this one.
