If you aren’t concerned about keeping warm while taking a wintry drive, perhaps you’d like to try traveling in a truck made of ice. This amazing self-propelled ice sculpture is a life-size, functioning truck made of 11,000 pounds of sculpted ice atop a modified 2005 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD chassis, engine, and electrical system.

This piece of mobile winter art is the work of Iceculture and Canadian Tire. Altogether the ice truck weighs 15,000 pounds. A special steel frame was built to support the weight of all the ice. On December 12, 2013 the truck was driven for 1.6km (almost one mile) at a speed of roughly 20 km/h or 12 mph.

Canadian Tire

Canadian Tire is what would happen if Wal-Mart’s Auto section took steroids, then combined with parts of Home Depot and the household goods section at Target. It has just about everything related to cars, camping, and other “down n dirty”-type stuff, and it is an essential stop before a long road trip. Canadian Tire issues loyalty points in the form of “Canadian Tire Money.” Everybody’s heard rumors of bars that accept it - I would like to know where you can do this!

The Signs as Customers I've had at Work
  • Aries:The man who punched the self checkouts because they weren't scanning fast enough
  • Taurus:The man who swore up one side of a barn and down the other that it was illegal to check ID before we would return his item
  • Gemini:The person who went to get their headlights changed in Auto Parts and forgot that his weed was stashed there
  • Cancer:The woman who paid for $40 in plants with nickles and dimes. At closing.
  • Leo:The woman whose cart I latched onto to prevent her from stealing a $600 vacuum and almost dragged me outside
  • Virgo:The person who returned a microwave with a roast chicken inside, that somehow ended up in the warehouse for months before anyone realized what the smell was (Okay I wasn't really here for this but I heard the stories)
  • Libra:The person who walked into the store, took a tent from our sports section, then walked out the back receiving doors
  • Scorpio:The man who came into the store and cussed out the Sports manager because she wasn't speaking French
  • Sagittarius:The man who managed to steal not one, but two chainsaws in the span of 2 months
  • Capricorn:The woman who threatened to have us all fired for asking her to leave her backpack at the front
  • Aquarius:The woman who tried to get me to let her children have the gum they'd taken off the shelf, opened, and eaten, for free because she didn't have any change
  • Pisces:The old man who bought $60 in ant killer and spent the entire transaction muttering about how 'they were all going to pay'
