#2 WTF were they serving liquid nitrogen anyway in the bar. That is a Darwin Award close call.

#5 I'm going to make a bet it wasn't the Liquid Nitrogen...

#6 I been around liquid nitrogen quite a bit in labs. We always treated it very seriously - it gives pretty nasty "burns".

#7 Apparently the liquid nitrogen creates nice mist as it burns off or whatever but they aren't supposed to drink it. Either someone got stupid or something else is going on.

#8 I guess nobody can use dry ice any more.
Some dumbfuck club owner's idea. I hope he gets sued for millions.

#9 Liquid nitrogen is at something like -196C.
I don't understand howver how it could happen. Firrst: the girls should heva noticed it was coooools. In fact it is so cold that if you put it in a metal recipient there will be dropletes of liquid oxygen in the bottom of it.
Also at science museum the attendant threw a fair quentity of it it the public and it vaporized before reaching anyone. Finally we passed (briefly) our hands in it and nobody was hurt because it vaporized around our hands.

#10 I call bullsh*t.
She drank a cocktail containing liquid nitrogen?
Have any of you ever picked up a piece of glass that was cooled down to -196 C? I have a few times. You immediately get frost bite on your fingers. There is no confusing it with a cocktail drink, even if one were spectacularly stupid and increadibly drunk.

#12 I went to a dermatologist not long ago with actinic keratosis on my forehead from sun exposure. Untreated AKs can advance to squamous cell carcinoma. The treatment? Liquid nitrogen sprayed on the affected area. It destroys the AK cells.

#13 I get the same thing from my dermi doc. He's a retired USAF flt surgeon. I made the mistake of telling an Air Force golf course joke a few years back. I get the full nitro treatment with lingering booster now every visit. :-(

#14 My SWAG: they put a drop or two of liquid nitrogen in a drink to make it boil and froth and fizz. After it cooks off, you're left with a harmless, cold drink. In this case, she chugged it before it was done. ++ungood.
