Cambridge: Dr Mike Cummerbatch has rocked the world of science by claiming to have discovered 'solid water'.
The claims, which were published in the respected journal It's Science Innit?, are the culmination of 20 years work in the field of water.
Professor Jay Bungalow, Director of Limescale at Cambridge's H20 Laboratories, said: "This is an important discovery for mankind. With this knowledge, we can at last take the first steps in becoming gods."
A clearly delighted Dr Mike explained what the find would mean to him personally: "Well it's my pension isn't it?"
When pressed on just how he made the mindbending discovery, Dr Mike said: "It was really quite simple. By lowering the temperature of water, I found that it will actually harden."
The precious molecules of 'solid water' are currently in a secret location. Readers can see the experiment and others involving dark light and cold heat by visiting www.hardandwet.com
