That will go good in a cold lab scene, Brrr.

Hey, don't you get enough frost up your way without having to build an evil machine to make more?:D

I agree with Joisey - kids will be fascinated by this clever contraption.

Looks great!

03-22-2010, 10:15 PM
wow what a great Rube Goldberg type contraption! The kids will watch that for hours - I have also noticed the subliminal message that you added into the spinning snowflake (bring me all of mommy and daddy's money so that I can pay for the mortgage) LOL :devil:

03-22-2010, 11:26 PM
Forget the kids. My husband would have a blast with that thing...he's such a Looks good.

very cool! very creative design

03-23-2010, 12:31 PM
The cold is a primal fear, not just a discomfort. You built a machine that subtly disguises, yet showcases this, in a fun way. That is both messed up & cool, I like it!

03-23-2010, 12:36 PM
Very cool!!

03-23-2010, 03:44 PM
Very creative! The TOTs are gonna love it.

Wow I saw this this and thought, you must be the Grinch! What a cool gadget, I have lots of Grinch stuff from the movie, and I would have thought this came right from the set. Everyone will have fun with this.
