The second problem is that it tends to freeze things. We've tried turning it down, and it keeps things in the refridgerator frozen up until the point where the ice cream in the freezer melts. Then everything is too warm. But turn it up a notch, and *bam*, everything freezes again, including the milk in the refrigerated part.
Because of all this, I end up scraping sheets of ice off of containers before I can get to the food inside. I was playing around with one of these sheets of ice, and something occurred to me. So, you know all those murder mysteries where a body is found, mysteriously stabbed to death, lying in a pool of water and eventually someone figures out that the victim was killed by a knife of ice? Well... I don't buy it. Even just after it's been broken off, ice is just not that sharp, nor that durable. I actually tried to cut or puncture myself (in the interests of science, of course -- I am not A, thankyouverymuch), and was unable to do much more than dent my thumb.
So, yeah. Mighty weapon there, the knife of ice.
