Using a Frozen Towel as a Sled


As The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy informs us:

A towel . . . is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapors; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a mind-boggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.

You can also, as Kyle Brittain discovered, make a functional toboggan out of a towel by shaping it, then freezing it with water. It works well as a sled. Just be aware that the towel may not survive the process, so be sure to use someone else's.

Apologies to his wife ?Because women are the ones that look after the household items and men get to do whatever they want with them and then publicly apologise to the house slave.It is getting on towards 2022 and we still have sexism running rife.
