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!
Hit the jump for the video.
Thanks to carey, who told me this is even cooler than peeing your own name in the snow even though that's debatable.
