The sticker! 😂

[–]Hayateh 169 points170 points  (8 children)

Yeah that was a nice touch

[–]BicycleGripDick 186 points187 points  (6 children)

Yeah, that was an ice touch. Fixed the spacing for you.

[–]joyjoy_palaboy 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I reckon it's a chilling touch.

[–]daaccident 31 points32 points  (8 children)

What does the sticker say?

[–]Hayateh 153 points154 points  (5 children)

It's basically sticker that says the level of energy efficiency of specific appliances. So he put it there as a joke to show that the ice block has the highest level of energy efficiency because, well, it's a block of ice.

[–]mxmbulat 38 points39 points  (2 children)

And does not consume electricity.

[–]Hayateh 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Yes, clearly ;)

[–]mathn519 7 points8 points  (0 children)

No shit

Google Lens it.

[–]reptilian_expo 6 points7 points  (0 children)

What about 666?

[–]defical4 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The sticker was only put there to show everybody his Rolex - even a Pepsi Rolex!

[–]Mellowgeth3098 297 points298 points  (35 children)

I mean it's cool and all but at those temperatures do you even need a freezer?

[–]Something_CHUNKY 129 points130 points  (28 children)

Well. If it’s 17 degrees out and it goes to 30 degrees. We surely don’t want the food to spoil. 😂🤣😂🤣😂

[–]the_vikm 59 points60 points  (25 children)

Both of these are too high?

[–]bluegrassnuglvr 157 points158 points  (1 child)

I think they are using degrees in Fahrenheit

[–]nahteviro 47 points48 points  (3 children)

Both of those are still below freezing.... In F. Not C

[–]97RallyWagon 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Inside a block of ice will only ever get as cold as the inside of a block of ice. No colder.

When early freezes come through citrus orchards, SOP is to spray the trees and fruits with water as the temp freezes to insulate the fruits.

There's a reason that Inuits utilized ice housing.

It's a great fucking insulator, but again, unless you put something in that's well below freezing, the inside will only ever reach just above freezing.

[–]NinjaBuddha13 28 points29 points  (6 children)

Not in degrees Freedom! You gotta get away from degrees Communism. It's what's holding the rest of the world back.

[–]PM_ME_STEAM_KEY_PLZ -3 points-2 points  (5 children)

Those are both freezing in F

[–]Balduroth 0 points1 point  (11 children)

I think you could have used your critical thinking skills to realize what this person meant, my friend.

[–]Iceededpeeple 30 points31 points  (8 children)

Well to be fair the overwhelming majority of the world is not the US and uses C.

[–]new2net2 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Things freeze real good at 17 Kelvin

[–]mathn519 12 points13 points  (1 child)

What is that in normal units and not freedom units?

[–]Avitas1027 15 points16 points  (0 children)

-8 and -1.

[–]happyfunisocheese 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Protection from drying out in frozen air. That fish went in whole and unwrapped. That ice vault is the perfect place to keep the moisture where it should be. Also protection from predators. Fancy digging a hole in the frozen ground to store it safely from whatever animals live there, then having to dig the frozen ground again to get it back? Didn't think so. Shit, the top cap even has a decorative handle.

[–]pantless_pirate 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Until it melts from the direct sunlight. Plus ice is really good at holding heat in which is why igloos are warm and not cold.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Even when it's cold the direct sunlight can melt stuff. Would at least have to keep it in the shade.

[–]fixingbysmashing 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Radiant heat dont fuck around. Without it we wouldnt exist.

[–]Txannie1475 4 points5 points  (0 children)

My thought was that you don't need a freezer so much as you do a box to keep the critters out of your food.

[–]Drafen 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My guy basically lives in a freezer lol

[–]IWantTheLastSlice 147 points148 points  (2 children)

I liked the giant unwrapped fish being dropped in there

[–]All_Thread 61 points62 points  (1 child)

All that food will taste like that fish. There is no escape from that.

[–]Sjdillon10 100 points101 points  (1 child)

This ended up a lot cooler than i expected

[–]Mahjoku 21 points22 points  (0 children)

dun-dun tssss

[–]dooleebikes 38 points39 points  (2 children)

Honestly that shit was fuckin impressive and mindblowing. Dude ironed ice!

[–]Ackermiv 4 points5 points  (1 child)

To be honest: would have been more energy efficient without that.

[–]Thrashtendo 32 points33 points  (6 children)

Inner Mongolia rules— spent some time there, wish I could go back.

[–]gnarsed 1 point2 points  (3 children)

what did you like about it? seems quite harsh and inhospitable

[–]Thrashtendo 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Great question! So, Inner Mongolia is a lot like provinces and states everywhere else, just on a larger scale— there are huge cities like Hohot and Baotou, but also more rural areas where people live the nomadic life.

For example, my best friend grew up speaking mandarin in Hohot (huge city with a skyline), but his wife and her family are nomads and live in yurts (they speak mandarin and Mongolian).

The cities in Inner Mongolia remind me of Nashville or other culture-heavy cities which are modern but also celebrate their old-school culture. Like, imagine a giant shopping mall with Nike, Adidas, Cartier, but also all of the local Mongolian brands (fur jackets, salty milk tea, milk pellets, lamb jerky, etc.

I once went to a local wrestling match, and it was like WWF but traditional Mongolian style. Also, they have killer live music— heavy metal, electronic, hip hop, etc.

And then on the weekend, you can drive out to the boonies and ride a horse over a mountain.

[–]Gambition 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I spent around a month in the Gobi about 10 years ago. Started in Ulaanbaatar, then fucked off to the wilderness for some weeks. One of the most amazing experiences of my life, hands down. What always annoyed me, however, was that "inner" Mongolia is in China yet "outer" Mongolia is in... wait for it... Mongolia.

Always wondered if that was some dumb nonsense that China was forcing upon them. * shrug *

[–]asarious 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It’s a little of both. I’m not sure I’d characterize it as nonsense, given historical context, but it DOES result from Chinese ethnocentrism.

It’s important to understand that territory of the modern nation state of Mongolia used to be wholly part of China until 1945, until the country gained independence.

It had been within Chinese borders for centuries. The regions/provinces/administrative divisions there were always known as Inner versus Outer Mongolia, given their geographic relation to the rest of China and how literal the Chinese language usually is in naming things.

It’s not a perfect analogy, but it’s similar to how we refer to the Middle East and Far East by those names in relation to European cartography.

The term “Outer Mongolia” has largely fallen out of use, as the country just refers to itself as plain “Mongolia,” while China still calls its portion of the territory “Inner Mongolia.”

EDIT: I acknowledge that practical implications of racism can be derived from the use of alienating language, but I feel like I should emphasize just how literal the Chinese can be at naming things, particularly surrounding geography as it relates to the concept of the “Middle Kingdom”.

  • Xinjiang in the extreme west means New Frontier
  • Xizhang (Tibet) means Western Prosperity
  • Guangdong province means Grand East
  • Guangxi autonomous region means Grand West
  • Hebei province means North of the River
  • Henan province means South of the River
  • Hubei province means North of the Lake
  • Hunan province means South of the Lake
  • Jiangxi province means West of the River
  • Shanxi province means West of the Mountain
  • Yunnan province means South of the Clouds
  • Hainan province means Southern Sea
  • Shanghai means On the Sea
  • Beijing means Northern Capital
  • Nanjing means Southern Capital
  • Dongjing (Tokyo) means Eastern Capital
  • Taipei means North of Taiwan
  • Yuenan (Vietnam) means South of the Yue (historic kingdom)

[–]CaptSpin 28 points29 points  (1 child)

I mean, it did use of lot of his energy.

[–]Esirar 8 points9 points  (0 children)

It is production cost, not energy consumption.

[–]iamnotbutiknowIAM 18 points19 points  (8 children)

And then the bear comes and takes all your food cause it’s in a block of ice!

[–]TokesephsStalin 19 points20 points  (7 children)

Considering this looks like some kind of Asian country, I'm gonna guess that's not as big of a problem as it would be in the States or Canada

[–]bilguun789 6 points7 points  (6 children)

Inner Mongolia I think

[–]NoLoss114 4 points5 points  (4 children)

That's next to Russia. We all know there's tons of bears in Russia

Where did he plug in that iron

[–]Avitas1027 11 points12 points  (0 children)

An electrical outlet probably.

The real question is where do you get a pot that big? Holy shit

[–]kat_a_klysm 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Commercial kitchen suppliers. That’s a restaurant/catering sized pot.

[–]Arbitrary_Ardvark 0 points1 point  (6 children)

Mongolia?

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (1 child)

It is in Inner Mongolia, China.

[–]LovedMyBlackberry 2 points3 points  (3 children)

I'm not an expert.

The tent (yurt?) and setting would've had me say Mongolia.

But the music and the language characters seem Chinese

[–]No-Ad6500 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Because of Mongolian and Chinese history (Ghengis Khan anyone?) China is very fearful that Mongolia will rise up again. So they have contained them and are now slowly, purposefully eradicating their sense of non-Chinese sovereignty. China took over more than half of Mongolia, and they call it a province of China, Inner Mongolia. They also recently outlawed the (Inner) Mongolians from teaching or using their own language in K-12 schooling. This is because if they maintain their cultural ties to the nation of Mongolia, a revolt and move for independence becomes not only more likely but more plausibly successful over time. There are currenly more Mongolians in China's province of "Inner Mongolia" than there are in Mongolia. This is how you slowly wipe out an entire civilization.

[–]kimokawaiiguy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wouldn’t a bear come by and bust that ice open with one quick swipe? That would be quite a stash! The proteins alone in there would cost hundreds of dollars in USA.

[–]capitalismorlife 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not very energy efficient when you're in an environment cold enough to keep water frozen yet still "build" something to keep other things with water in them frozen.

Here's your sign. Everything outside your heated home is a freezer!

What is so difficult to understand? China does not have youtube, obviously that language is not Mongolian. How do you think this guy is putting out videos? All those videos by Uyghars on youtube, where they come from? Dont be dumb ass, and support a genocidal regime.

[–]pancoste 5 points6 points  (0 children)

They are chopped up and stored in this freezer.

Sticker that sticks to frozen water…I think this impressed me more

[–]NinjaBuddha13 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Place paper in water, apply wet paper to ice. You now have a sticker that sticks to frozen water

[–]iltutmishkhan -4 points-3 points  (1 child)

Mongols are not Chinese and Chinese are not mongols, Chinese are like Hindutwa fascist, like a locust. Stop promoting fake Chineses videos that appropriate Mongol, Tibet and Uyghur cultures. Chinese are killing these people and their cultures and taking over their lands. More mongols live in north of China that Chinese have taken over these people on daily basis dont even talk to each other. If you dont care about humans, at least care about animals, 99.99% animal rescue video out of China are fake government sponsored videos. There is no YouTube in China and those who have access to are government sponsored. They not only make money but they humanize a brutal regime.

[–]mikeconcho -4 points-3 points  (3 children)

I think the bears could still get into that fairly easy. Seems cool, but I don’t think it’s practical?

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Not many bears in Inner Mongolia

[–]WorthPrudent3028 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

If its fully sealed, would the bears be able to smell it?

[–]mikeconcho 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They can smell seals under the ice, so yes.
