And he would have gotten away with it, too - if it weren't for those darned kids!

Who needs climate change when you have an evil weather machine?

The record-cold temperatures currently sweeping the country made me wonder if General Hospital's Mikos Cassadine - or his awesome widow, Helena - are up to their old tricks again.

Back in the early 1980s, when GH was the hottest thing on TV, Executive Producer Gloria Monty and Headwriter Thom Racina decided to cool things off a bit with a sci-fi adventure story about the world's largest synthetic diamond known as the Ice Princess, and a megalomaniac's plan to freeze the world.

Had our silly political leaders known about global warming then, they would have welcomed Mikos with open arms, and today he'd be hailed as a hero, while those stowaway spoilers, Luke, Laura, Robert and the World Security Bureau would be vilified for their attempts to stop him and doom us all.

Watch a classic clip below featuring Sharon Wyatt in her earliest days as Tiffany, Thao Penghlis (DOOL) as Victor, John Colicos (of Battlestar: Gallactica fame) as Mikos, and even Dr. Bombay from Bewitched and find out how crushed diamonds are the future of climate control.
