Description says copper, but the headline says iron. and while it is hot, it does not appear hot enough to be glowing in the visible spectrum, so not “red-hot.”

Pretty elaborate way to go ice fishing.

Slightly awed by people with access to large chunks of really hot and really cold things.

I totally forgot!!! My brother and I (as youngsters, of course) used to do this with a fork and an ice cube. We’d heat the fork over the gas range. Pretty much the same sound, but much higher pitched.

That touches on the comment below. (Power, my friend.)
