Genuinely well aged Gizmodo readers might recall the old-fashioned Ice Box; for most of the rest of us it's a part of history. History, in this case that could be repeating itself on a rather massive scale in Mongolia, as the capital looks to turn itself into a giant icebox.

This makes water flow up over the ice and then freeze itself. The process is repeated to make sheets that can be exceptionally thick.
