    Ouch wouldn't wanna be hit by one of those!

    Not only is that "ouch," but that could also kill, considering an ice ball would probably be as hard as a typical rock.

    XD XD cool! maybe make some smaller ones and put them in a potatoe cannon!

    me and my brother would makes these all the time and put the on our trampoline! sometimes even break them into little pieces and it hurt but it was very fun!!! you would have to try to not get hit by them! you could also play my version of poison ivy on the trampoline with these!

    ...don't put this in your lunch. Unless you want a puddle of water, of course.
