Steven Wright, an American comedian, has a famous one-liner which goes "I just bought some powdered water, but I didn't know what to add."
While this is a funny line, it should be obvious to Mr. Wright what he needs to add. What is it?


Answer

Heat.

"Powdered water" is of course finely crushed ice, and to get what you really want (liquid water), you only need to add heat.
