Bullet-Shape Ice Cube Tray Makes AK-47 Ice Ammo

Or, 'They'll Pry My Drink from My Cold Dead Hands' You know that detective-show trope where someone gets stabbed with a knife made of ice? And how it melts before the forensics team shows up? But they figure it out anyway from the watery nature of the blood or the trace amount of water-borne elements found at the scene? Well, this ice-bullet-making ice tray ups the ante. Now TV killers have a whole new M.O. The ice ammo resembles bullets from an AK-47. Not that you could actually fire one of these from an assault rifle, as Mythbusters proved in its first episode.

Man Builds Coal-Oven Grill Simulator

Editor's note: A short time ago, homeslice Philip G. got in touch, telling me there was a post on pizzamaking.com that was making quite a stir: Reverse-Engineered Coal-Fired Brick Oven. Apparently, a Michigan man had invented a grill insert that he claimed simulated a coal- or wood-fired oven. I clicked over and became fascinated by the metal-and-stone device (pictured below). Could something so simple-looking achieve the holy grail of at-home pizza-making—hot enough and consistent enough temperatures to perfectly cook a pie? I don't know yet, because my 2stone Pizza Grill has only today begun its UPS journey to my home... More

Dear Slice: Mail-Order Pizza?

Dear Slice, My girlfriend is a native of Brooklyn, although she now resides in Oxford, England, getting her master's degree. She often complains about the lack of a good NYC-quality pizza (a complaint she has about any city outside of NYC). I was looking into mail-order NYC pizza that I could send her and that she could pop into the oven. Any thoughts? Cheers, Andrew E. Dear Andrew, This is one we get a lot, but luckily, the answer is easy enough. Slice did a bit on this last year. I'll rerun it here and hope that it'll be of... More
