OD-1 was out in his ski slope snow grooming machine (don't ask why he had one - he just did) and wanted to take a short cut across the lake behind Duffus's place. He knew the ice was only about 3 inches thick and that 2 snowmobiles and 4 men had gone through the ice just that morning. He also knew his machine was much larger and weighed as much as 10 snowmobiles. Yet he calmly drove across the middle of the lake to the other side without as much as the ice cracking under the heavy weight of his machine. He wasn't assisted by aliens or any other supernatural stuff like that. This is a real life teaser with no quirky tricks.

Why didn't he go through the ice?
