Actually, let me clarify. You can - and do - throw ice in the trash on a regular basis. What you cannot do is throw ice in the trash and have it not make the trash leak. All over the kitchen floor. And make your wife crazy-annoyed.
You see, the ice (which is a solid when you put it in the trash) melts (and becomes a liquid) between the time you put it in our kitchen trash can and the time someone gets around to taking it out for trash day which by the way is every Wednesday and Saturday - exact same two days, each week. Just sayin'.
And while we're on the subject of the freezing point of water, if you leave your beloved water bottles outside when the temperature reaches - hmmm, how should I put this so you'll understand - BELOW freezing, they will freeze. Just sayin'
