We Have A Flake In Our Midst

Arcticio (@arcticio) says:

You call the ice flakes of first image an ice pack? Well, some euphemisms intend to amuse, lol.

Below is the image he is referring to , with the scale attached.

Those ice flakes are as large as 2000 km^2 or 30 Manhattans.  

If a Manhattan of ice calves off a glacier in Greenland, it is gargantuan world shattering news. But 30 Manhattans of unmelted MYI in the Arctic is a “flake”

    No Steven, I think Arcticio (@arcticio) meant say that Arcticio (@arcticio) is a flake. That makes a whole lot more sense.
