    Ooo, I like that look, chunky ice cubes! They'd fit in a glass
    better than the ones I have now.

    For $33? I'll arrange my cubes. Heh.

    Junkie is a bit strong, but I do like my ice. I would not pay $33
    either. Cute though.

    Hey, maybe $10 for the novelty value... but you're right about $33.
    Why such an odd number?

    And thanks to the person that suggested oiling the ice cube trays, letting
    them stand for 24 hours, and washing well before using to have the ice come
    out easily. It really works!

    Can do the same with styrofoam egg cartons... makes a dozen lovely ice
    cold witch's titties. There are lots of everyday packaging
    materials one can use to make ice.

    I never thought of the styrofoam egg cartons but I can see that it would
    work too. Are you the person that suggested the oil? If you are, it was a
    good tip, and if you weren't, it's still a good tip.

    I must confess, it was me. Of course originally it was not my idea, I
    read it on a sticker that was on the plastic ice cube trays that came
    with a fridge, but like more than thirty years ago.

    I just upsidedown wet the ice tray.

    In an instant, rightside up, with a delicate twist, the cubes
    almost want to jump out at you.

    It ain't rocket science OR brain surgery.

    Yeah but, then sometimes they fall out into the sink.

    Well, yeah, but wet cubes stick together in the bowl in the freezer. I don't
    want an igloo, just a few cubes several times a day.

    Exactly, Sheldon. If you don't have an ice cube maker and only have room
    for two ice cube trays in the freezer, the ones that leap out are a waste of
    good ice cubes. Even if your sink is spotless, I never liked grabbing fallen
    ice cubes from the sink to use in a beverage.

    Oh c'mon man...

    It's just as easy to use the sink hose rightside up.

    Please return your Brain Surgeon card. ;-)
