    Wow, a “girlfriend in Canada” who actually exists!

      Yeah, but the igloo project seems to have been cleverly designed to sabotage the relationship, so we’ll see.

      “Tee hee! My mom got us the stuff to make a cool igloo in the back, and when you’re done building it, we can sneak in there for sexytime!”

      “Aren’t you done building that goddamn thing yet?”
      “Almost, but I can’t feel my genitalia. I don’t understand, it’s supposed to be warmer than this!”

      Pretty crafty, guy’s Canadian girlfriend’s mom!

         It looks like it needs two sleeping bags zipped together for the occupants, and a nice strong door for some privacy

       Similar to have a ‘boyfriend in New Zealand’?

    An igloo out of ICE?  Brrrrr. They have to be built of snow to be effective. Ice is a very poor thermal insulator; snow is a fairly good one. Still, a cool project. (In more ways than one.)

    That is not an igloo. That’s a house built of ice. This is an igloo: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/0c/Igloo.jpg

      It’s not really an igloo unless you were wearing caribou skin clothes and sealskin boots while you were building it.  And if your pana was made by peeing a line in the snow.
      Details here:

      /The igloo in the photo is built from a series of rings, whereas an igloo is made from a continuous spiral of snow blocks.

      //That coloured igloo is cool though. 

      ///I once made a polar bear out of snow and ice for a girlfriend.  One of these days, I’ll have to digitize the photo.

    • Looks like a snow cave to me.

    For some reason I’m expecting to see a nerdier version of this.  Multi-colored LEDs embedded in the ice blocks connected to an Arduino controller synced to a laptop all while choreographed to Trans Siberian Orchestra…

  8. Now do a Tiffany Lamp pattern

    I’m picturing one made of frozen Kool-Aid just for flavoring fun- a Popsicle effect.
