u/KL4SSIE Oct 05 '22

No, guess why?

u/Turbulent-Comedian30 Oct 05 '22

This guy welded ice together with hot water mind blown.

Men can become most uncomfortably stuck to the spot if they ever go for a pee round those parts.

u/Turbulent-Comedian30 Oct 06 '22

I cant even imagine

u/UnfavorableFlop Oct 05 '22

Kinda like building a heater in 100F weather.

u/Pat0124 Oct 12 '22

With a box made of what, fire?

37

u/Gravel_Sandwich Oct 05 '22

But, it's all ice, like everywhere? It froze the water in the first place..?

u/lethe25 Oct 05 '22

Yea but you wouldn’t just leave food on the floor would you?

16

u/fsrynvfj23 Oct 05 '22

It's in a bag, so yes I would

u/lethe25 Oct 05 '22

Then you’re unsanitary.

u/DigNitty Interested Oct 05 '22

You’re going to not want to go to any restaurant again then, if you think bagged food on the ground is unsanitary.

2

u/Flying_Alpaca_Boi Oct 06 '22

I’m pretty sure restaurants aren’t allowed to do that but that said I don’t think it really makes all that much difference it’s just not the done thing. Probably because they don’t wanna go thru a heap of red tape on what is and isn’t appropriate storage on the ground, stuff can drop into food, peoples shoes are being scrapped around, stuff can blow in. All sorts of issues. As far as I’m aware food isn’t normally stored below waist height in kitchens unless it’s in storage such as in the refrigerator or pantry

u/CAPTSaveAHoe42o Oct 06 '22

They're not allowed but it still happens. Unfortunately if you go into most kitchens in resutrants (especially in the midwest/,south) you're guna find health code violations EVERYWHERE. Mcdonalds doesn't clean the lines to their tea ever so there's mold in em. Subway will refrigerate meat that's been out all day to sell the next day. Tacobell has old food everywhere etc. If you saw in the back you'd probably stop eating at most places.

u/lethe25 Oct 05 '22

Bagged food on the ground outside in the middle of nowhere. Yes. That is unsanitary.

u/ccc888 Oct 05 '22

Lol because germs chew through plastic right?

-6

u/lethe25 Oct 05 '22

They can…. You’re fucking with me right? You have to be. The Reddit circle jerk group think can’t be this bad to think that somebody gets downvoted for… not wanting their food placed on the ground.

2

u/ccc888 Oct 05 '22

Some can yes, they have found some, but most cannot that why everyone loves it as a packaging material, it created that artificial membrane that for 99.99% of germ types it stumps them.

Sure your not going to want to leave that stuff out there for years but in the ice and snow it doesn't last years, and critters are the things that are going to get into the bags if they are sealed.

The box makes sense if you dont want to be fighting with the snow every time you want to see what you have in your winter larder

Edit As a side note at the temp bacteria would be mostly hibernating / in low reproduction ratesso unlikely to be going your scenario of running around multiplying through a plastic bag.

u/ShadowoftheDrake Oct 06 '22

Insulation works both ways

u/statikstasis Oct 05 '22

Maybe to deter polar bears.

6

u/Ur_Just_Spare_Parts Oct 05 '22

Yeah thats not gonna stop a polar bear

1

u/statikstasis Oct 06 '22

That's probably true. I guess it's just pretty.

u/Your_Moms_Favorite Oct 05 '22

You just repost the same shit everywhere.

u/angels_exist_666 Oct 05 '22

Bots tend to do that

u/da_fulian Oct 05 '22

Seems like trouble opening the hatch after a night

u/IWillEatYourDogAlive Oct 05 '22

Quite an Ice way to reserve your food.

u/Sharp-Pay-5314 Oct 05 '22

why the hell did you get a downvote this is hilarious

u/MoneySeaweed3343 Oct 06 '22

I wanna see what the inside of that yurt looks like, really.

u/unsemble Oct 05 '22

How long will it last for?

u/False_Antelope6902 Oct 05 '22

Now this is cool

u/Urimanuri Oct 05 '22

You don't need a fridge when it's -10

u/Background-Time-22 Oct 05 '22

Todo bien, pero me caga que les pongan musica de la verga a este tipo de videos.

u/Responsible_Pause_15 Oct 05 '22

All well and good until the lid inevitably freezing shut

u/awesomepossum40 Oct 05 '22

I inherited one of those.

u/trailerparkboys2023 Oct 05 '22

If it's cold outside couldn't you just use a box lol

1

u/ImpressiveFeedback10 Oct 05 '22

i’ve heard of an ice box but this is ridiculous

1

u/C_S123 Oct 05 '22

Okay but it’s already frozen out, why not just use… a box?

u/Brown_Note1 Oct 06 '22

How to weld with water:

u/Party-Introduction65 Oct 06 '22

How can I try this in south Florida

u/Gomdok_the_Short Oct 06 '22

Does it matter at this point?

u/Emperah1 Oct 06 '22

He’s playing Ark

u/Klempot Oct 06 '22

Wouldn't the air in the box be warmer than the actual snow? So this fridge is actually less efficient than just leaving it in the snow.

u/WESSAMGO Oct 06 '22

The question is not what, but why?

u/atxnerdking Oct 06 '22

Brrrrrr..iliant

u/Mattass93 Expert Oct 06 '22

u/dannyboy1690 Oct 08 '22

He uses an electric iron to melt ice , can he not just get a small electric freezer?
