So, theoretically, if you threw two big chunks of dry ice into your little plastic garbage can, and then your garbage can got all frozen and frosty, what would you do next to make it go away?

I’ll give you a hint: Grabbing it with your bare hands is not the right answer.

  1. Well, assuming this isn’t one of those “Hypothetical, theoretical, I no longer really care for an answer” kinda questions, I would suggesting dousing it with water. Assuming the dry ice isn’t in there anymore, of course. If the dry ice IS still in there, I would suggest dousing it with water in a well ventilated place. 😛

  10. I’m going to go with the “leave it alone” option. I wish I could resolve all my problems this way. Lord knows I try.

  11. My faith is growing that it will all be melted by tomorrow. Which is sad, because I really would like to pour in my water bottle and make a witch cauldron out of my garbage can. But that’s how the fire department gets called.
    My other temptation, resisted so far, is to kick my garbage can as hard as I can to see if it will shatter. I doubt it, but it would make me so happy.

  14. Are you at the office? Call maintenance and tell them your trashcan’s acting funny and could they come check it out. Swear you have no idea what’s causing it.

    • I’m only sorry I’m just reading this now, and I’m already at home. I think it would have been the kindest thing for me to do, as it would have given our facilities guys a story to dine out on for a while.
      As it is, I locked my office in fear that the cleaning lady would somehow touch the ice and burn herself, because I have to assume that everyone is as foolish as I am.

      • That’s the kind of thing I used to do at the paper all the time. “12 ounce can of Coke in the pneumatic tube? Got no idea.” “Shoe in pneumatic tube? Not my size.”

      • Kharmicly speaking, this is why you have been condemned to doing computer technical support for Susan, I think.

      • You think?
        Today she wanted to put a page on the website. I switched it all to code and told her to have at it while I was at lunch.

  22. You will also want to make sure it’s really dry ice, and not ice-nine.
    If it is, let me know. I like to get advance notice of the end of the world.
