  10. One time, a long time ago, Al asked why little spikes sometimes appeared on his ice cubes. While the question was answered to everyone's satisfaction at the time, I thought this video may be interesting. http://www.iflscience.com/chemistry/why-do-spikes-form-ice-cubes
  11. Remember Rule 5. You will get it done. Just ride up and down your driveway a bunch.

  13. Thanks everyone! I had a great birthday.
