The final episode of this year's Six Feet Under including the beheading of a 
woman by a piece of "blue ice" as she stood on her back yard, where she had 
moved to get better reception on her cell phone; she was talking to her husband 
at the time she was struck. The funeral directors called it "blue ice" that 
was the first I'd heard of it.

Blue Ice (in caps) is a trademarked name for a kind of Vicks coughdrops.
