Instruments of Doom

So it's that time of year in Kiev when the city is prone to icicles. While they look pretty, what inevitably happens every year is a few of these things will fall off of buildings from five to ten to twenty stories up and hit some poor person. Sometimes it kills them, sometimes it just does really serious damage and knocks you unconscious.

With icicles forming with great regularity and with people getting hurt by them with similar regularity you'd think the locals would have a method of dealing with this problem.

And they do! See above.
