Geez!  He only had a cube about twice as big as a sugar cube and all 
we got to see was about a pea sized chunk put in a 400ml beaker.  
  I guess a snowball into a "pot" at an aluminum plant gets pretty 
exciting too!  That's just from the instant vaporization of the snowball 
though.  One of the occasional stunts they used to do at the ALCOA 
plant Dad worked at a couple years.
