btcarnovale- your logic is beautiful, I'm not scientist I'd be shocked if you were incorrect.
I might be a bit late to this game but if you where a Aerospace engineer you must have been a very bad one who skipped a lot of science classes. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mpemba_effect
Just a wee bit late, my last comment was 3 years ago :P
Sorry Chemist123 - I know this comment is a little late but I just performed the experiment, MythBustsers style, and your interpretation of "entorpy" (which I am assuming is supposed to be entropy, the description of the universal preference for disorder over order) proves false. I filled two trays of ice, both trays from the same manufacturer (Rubbermaid), one tray with 60 degree water, one tray with 100 degree water (+/-5 according to my laser thermometer) both side by side on the same tray of my freezer (0 degrees according to the thermometer) and, believe it or not, the "cold" tray of water froze first (at 30 minutes it started to freeze over, with an average surface temp of 27 degrees) while the "hot" tray had an average surface temp of 37 degrees.
Oh, and I boiled both samples of water for 10-20 minutes - the cold one I stuck in the fridge and stirred with glass drink mixer on occasion until the average temp cooled to 60, while the "hot" water I let cool in a covered pot on the stove until the cool one was 60.
But who cares - I'm just some idiot who was dumb enough to be fooled by internet tomfoolery. There may be some combo of temps that can accomplish the described effect, but the required temps would have to be very narrow as to make the effect unnoticeable : http://www.physicsclassroom.com/class/thermalP/Lesson-1/Rates-of-Heat-Transfer
