Geemiee was devastated after losing a competition to his older, much cooler brother Swaff. He decided his (fake) magic skills weren't quite up to snuff, so he decided to practice on his dog, Fredrick.

Swaff was sitting at his desk, not only being cool, but working on another competition for his brother. He knew he could not risk anything, or else he would lose his "Coolest Guy in The House" status. So, he decided to write the rules in such a way, to trick Geemiee.

The rules were as follows:
-The first to get 5 ounces of a clear colorless liquid, that they found in their kitchen, to pass from a liquid state to a solid state by loss of heat would be the loser.
-Both participants would have to keep their 5 ounces at the same temperature, and cannot mess with it in any way
-They must use the same freezing device, at the same time.
-They must use the same type of containers.

When Geemiee walked in, Swaff approached him with his challenge. Geemiee gladly accepted, as this was his chance to become cooler than Swaff.

Why was Swaff so confident in his ability to win?


Swaff never, in any way, said they had to use water. He merely said they had to use a clear colorless liquid found in their kitchen. Vodka also fits in this category, it is clear, colorless, and found in their kitchen.

Swaff, being cool, knew that vodka does not freeze at the same temperature as water does; it has to be much colder. Geemiee, being less cool, had no idea, so he just muttered a few (fake) magical spells at his water, hoping to win.


Swaff is still the coolest guy in their household, and Geemiee is now contemplating on whether or not his magical abilities are true.
