  • Iced is an excellent word and one I used extensively on my travel blog while touring China and Southeast Asia.

    So much stuff goes exactly as you wouldn't expected on the road. It goes wrong, people drop you off in the middle of nowhere, feed you freaky substances, communicate to you in hilariously broken English (at least they tried...). So I used the word "iced" to decribe the unpredictable results of various exploits. Such as:

    "Iced by the bus service one again!"

    or "...so I ended up getting iced on Chang"

    A truly great, versatile word!
