    Eight thousand!!? Heres a shovel, get your fat-dorito-ass out there and SHOVEL.

    Still, I suppose this would be good for the elderly. But still, if they`ve got THAT much money, might as well just give the neighbor kid five bucks to do it for you.

    Those ice blocks don`t look very clean. I`m not using them for my ice cubes until I either manually distill them or buy some from the shop and melt all that. (If I ever get one :-P)

    First of all if you have a good shovel it only takes liek ten minutes to do it. And a couple of months ago i had a massive chill here in Alberta. It got to temperatures of -54 (-65) for the Americans so we dont need this.

    Notice that this is made in Japan. When they sell it in Japan, yes it is 8,000 dollars but guess what a 110,000 house in USA is 600,000 dollars in Japan. Beef is more expensive,too. I`m sure in the USA this won`t be as expensive.
