    It's going to be quite warm tonight, about 12ºC, they will still probably melt outside in cold water.

    But by definition the water will be warmer than the ice and the ice will melt!!

    That might not be a bad idea. And even if it is, at least it'll look swish for a while. :D

    Depends which mass is larger, if the ice has a larger mass it will freeze the water as well.

    Rockerchick, isn't there anything that can come out of the freezer? Like a chicken that could be cooked tomorrow, or a cheap old bag of frozen chips that you could just chuck??

    It'll actually be 6C before wind chill (and there's a lot of wind in Blackpool) tonight. So the ice would melt, but not too quickly, if you used very cold water.

    I don't know about ice. but a good way to keep your beers cold is to wrap them in a wet towel and stick 'em by a warm radiator.

    hmm i like that idea :)

    the water will evapourate from the wet towel due to the heat, and this evapouration will cool the beer down - in the same way that a fridge works :)

    does it work well, the wet towel thing...?
