Note: Kurt Vonnegut credited the idea for Ice-9 in "Cat's Cradle" to Nobel Prize-winning General Electric research chemist Irving Langmuir. Asked to host novelist HG Wells during his visit to GE, Langmuir suggested a form of ice stable at room temperature might prove entertaining science fiction. Wells passed and Vonnegut declared finders-keepers.

I just want Mar a Lago completely under water before I die.  Surely the Elder Gods will grant that minor disaster before the end.
