Would throwing a chunk of ice crack tiles?

i had a chunk of ice in my freezer and i needed to break it up, so i threw it into the shower and next thing i notice there's this straight crack running through the middle of two tiles around the drain.
now i am trying to convince my brain that they were always there, just like the fucked up window frame (which is also is of my doing).
would it be safe to assume that i belong in a padded cell?

That's always good. "We cracked The Liberty Bell, but it's a very neat crack."

By thinking that you defied any law(s) of physics mean you deserve to be in a padded cell.. Or a winner of the noble prize.. Which by the caliber of your posts isnt what i'm betting on..

If the block of ice was big enough and the drain was lower than the two tiles surrounding it (which is always true), the mass probably applied too much force to both of the supporting tiles on either side of the drain, causing them to break. You observed that they were very "clean" cracks. Probably because it was a directed force, and tiles tend to break with concise contours, not in a crumbling mess.

a very articulate reply! tell me, did you go to tile college?

anyone for cheese?

seriously, i fucked up, but i fucked up in a very neat manner, therefore, i shouldn't be liable for paying for busted up things in this house when the time comes for me to move out.

That made me laugh, hard. And yes it is quite safe to assume that you belong in a padded cell. ;)
