How Long Does It Take Until Water Turns Into Slush?

I'm currently freezing some flavored water into the freezer because my younger sister desires to sell some the following sunshine.If I added toothpicks as soon as I put them into the freezer,they would automatically fall down so I'm waiting until they turn into slush so the toothpicks enjoy some sort of support.How long does this usually take??

Also,I own a bonus question for some extra brownie points...

...How do you pronounce the word,"Salmon"? My father have always pronounced it the method it is spelled however I corrected him by saying the correct method to pronounce it is "Samon".Who is correct?

Answers:
I assume you're using something like icecube trays to freeze the dampen in, right? Put a piece of tinfoil over the tray, and poke the toothpicks through the tinfoil. The tinfoil will hold the toothpicks up while the sea freezes.

Regarding salmon:

salmĀ·on /'saemn/ Pronunciation Key - [sam-uhn]
I believe it's Sal-men? But I could be worng.
Depending on the temperature setting on your freezer, it will probably purloin about 30 minutes for the hose down to get a emaciated layer of rime on top.

I have never hear anyone pronounce the "L" in "salmon". Dictionary.com say it's pronounced "sam-uhn". Your dad is probably getting it confused with the germs "salmonella," which is pronounced "sal-mon-el-a".
It takes 20-30 minutes to turn to slush and it is pronounced Samon.
