Last portion of the asininely verbose article:

"So, to answer the initial question, if you froze water inside a container so strong it couldn't turn into ice, it would still turn into ice, just a slightly different type of ice in terms of scientific classification and its internal structure. Science! "

FFFUUUUUUUUUUUU

uttertosh: have you any idea how many zeroes in a terapascal?!?


Let me guess.  It's terrapascals all the way down.

Notabunny: Ever since high school chemistry, I've been teased because I thought water was pretty interesting. This article won't help.


You should drown your enemies*. No better way to show the power of water by killing them with it.
*You should not take this as a suggestion to drown your enemies

Agarista: Too lazy to lick on all the links in that article, but I would really have enjoyed a few diagrams of the changing crystalline structure of the different forms of ice.


your tongue would just stick to it anyways, and wouldn't you look funny with your tongue stuck to your monitor?

Delta1212: DonkeyDixon: uttertosh: yeah, at the centre of the sun - have you any idea how many zeroes in a terapascal?!?

Twelve if expressed as 1,000,000,000,000. One if 1x10^11

Um, 1x10^11 and 1,000,000,000,000 aren't the same number...


Of course they're not, one has 12 zeroes and the other only has one zero.

The majority of ice's final forms were discovered in part by a group of researchers in the Chemistry department of Oxford University who were able to create Ice XII, XIV and XV for the first time.

Vonnegut beat you to it.
