    All things considered, it’s probably good that they ran this
    before Black History Month.

    Once again I am reminded of the comic with the “horse drawn carriage”. Saw it sometime within the last two weeks and cannot remember where it was.

    Why is this labeled an ‘eeeew’?

    To offer a bit of quibble — the carver (sculptor) is of course there, but is not the subject of the exhibit, which is showing the carving (activity).

    Kamino Neko, because… whoops.

    And I’m guessing the word “a$$uming” might be the one that triggered the moderation?

    Seems to be. OK, trying again - Bill, please kill the earlier one, etc.

    My familiarity with the details of snow is pretty limited, but (if it is indeed a snow sculpture), should Lio really need a mallet and chisel to carve it?

    “should Lio really need a mallet and chisel to carve it?”

    It can happen, yes. In places where the temperature is well below freezing, the snow pretty much stays as it was when it fell, except for when it gets packed (like a sidewalk where lots of people walk… if it doesn’t get shoveled early, all the footprints mash together and form a nice layer of packed ice.

    However, when the temperature hovers near freezing, but just over during the daytime and below freezing at night, the snow melts a little bit where the sun hits it, and then freezes again, so you wind up with a crust of ice as a top layer with soft puffy snow underneath. Once it’s got that crust on it, it’s fairly difficult to reshape.

    Maybe it’s made from the same super-dense snow that I commented on a couple of months ago that had formed a couple of “0″s that fell on Lio and didn’t break or crack.

    Maybe it’s not snow at all, but a block of ice.

    And then they played a few hands of George Washington Bridge.

    @Ted: I had a post hit moderation the other day. I decided the word “a s s u m e” was the likely culprit that time. Maybe we’ve found at least one Wordpress trigger.
