Exploded 12 pack in a freezer

A very important property of water is the fact that, unlike most substances, it actually expands as it gets colder. As a result, ice floats, lakes don't freeze all the way to the bottom, and aquatic life prospers in cold climates. Also, Coke explodes in freezers. You have been warned.

UPDATE: I'm not the only one. Zero Tolerance posts about DIY distilling.
