:( oh well
Female 143
too bad it doesn`t get that cold around here
Female 143
wow i wanna try that!
Female 3
I had a boss one time that could have the same effect by walking into a room.
Female 3
Haha cool.
Female 695
looked like he just threw up snow
Female 29
Pretty cool. I had to watch it twice to figure it out.
Female 205
Wow,instant snow!
Female 335
40F = 4.4444444444445C

~ means approximately
Male 943
C=(5/9)*(f-32)
if f=-40
then (~.55)*(-72)= -40
Female 439
That would be fun.

Er...how does -40C=-40F? 0C is freezing, while 32F is freezing. If 0C=32F, how does -40C possibly =40F?

Female 406
it always rains, its always cold...BUT IT NEVER EFFIN SNOWS!!!
Male 78
Heh, this is my home town shown in the video, it does get this cold here.
And -40C is -40F...and I`ve lived through about 25 winters where it has been as low as -45C...I was surprised to see a video of Regina, SK on here! Cool video!
Male 725
that was awesome
Female 394
I wish I could do that I would just have alot of fun.
Female 2,244
That can`t be water. If it was also that cold the guy wouldn`t be wearing jeans and no hat or anything.
Female 48
WOW!
Female 113
AWESOME
Female 335
`The air temperature there recorded in July 1983 reached 89.6 C`

89.6C is boiling hot! hottest day in aus in 65yrs was 44.. 89 we`d all be dead

Female 335
`Also for the American`s -40 C = -40 F`

simcoe u dumbass -40C would kill you, and F and C are completly different -25F is like +10C i dont know the exact numbers but you are sooo far off

Male 7
mabye it was something like dry ice
Female 87
hehe i agree.. i expected it to freeze in the air or somethin... that`d be so much better =)
Male 210
"Why would it be too dangerous for it to be liquid nitrogen? In my physics class in college, my TA started a liquid nitrogen fight. We had one girl pinned under a table and dumped it right down her back, and nothing happened!"

Liquid Nitrogen can freeze skin cells. I tried it on my skin once, and now I have a scar. :D

Male 254
awesome :)
it is possible study physics and chemistry and you`ll find out why, I don`t feel like explaining it because alot of people arleady have, and I`d probably make an ass of myself
Male 224
Simcoe has it right.
It gets cold here sometimes and you could do it. When the person throws the water into the air it freezes and turns into a cloud of ice crystals. I`m guessing you need at least -30?C to do it good.
Male 733
coulda been like dry ice or summat but u neva kno i suppose
Male 99
w0w

woooaahh
Male 2,567
wow
Male 2,567
ooooooooooooooooooooo
Female 35
if you look closely, you can see steam rising from the bucket and after he tosses the water, the denser chunks of ice that some people had mentioned before fall directly down as the powder drifts off to the left.
Female 529
Wow... that`s cold! I thought things like that could only happen in cartoons!
Male 126
Wolf08, I have my doubts as to even a temperature of -100 Fit was likely a windchill of -100 F and probably not an actual air temperature. I could see the air temperature being -45 to -50 C with a 60 km/h wind, that would be a windchill of about -75 C or -100 F. The coldest temperature ever recorded on earth was at a Russian research station but that was in Antarctica. The air temperature there recorded in July 1983 reached 89.6 C (-128.6 F).
Male 244
this year some Russian city had temperature of -100 C
Female 420
My husband told me about one of his fishing trips (commercial fisherman in southeast Alaska) where they took an old pot of coffee, still hot off the burner and tossed it over the railing and it turned to steam and disappeared. So, yah, it can happen.
Female 328
Male 1
It wass great
Male 2,616
Oh, and the peesicles thing CAN happen, I saw it on some National Geographic show about scientists up in the Arctic circle. MythBusters don`t always bust myths with 100% guarantees that they`re correct- just that they`re almost certainly correct.
Male 2,616
Just because it isn`t the coldest place on the planet doesn`t mean it`s not cold... In my opinion, -30 Celcius is pretty damn cold. I`m a Southern California guy, though, so I am used to warmth.

Female 727
catlvr887....snow can spread out like that...just throw it up in the air and it spreads exactely like that if you get the light fluffy snow
Male 106
I doubt its real-when I say that, i mean the water is probably boiling hot. Cause ive done it with boiling water in warmer weather with similar effects
Female 52
So that can ACTUALLY happen in some places? I`m really surprised.

Buut I`m from So. California, so I`m pretty much confused by any type of weather below 60 degrees...

Male 527
SmagBoy1, An advanced diction doesn`t necessarily mean that you know what you`re talking about. In this case, you certainly don`t.
Male 1,808
woah.
Male 527
That actually is water. However, it has to boiling for this to occur. When the water is thrown into the are the water begins to chill so quickly that the momentum of the temperature takes it so quickly past freezing that this occurs.
Male 3
Definatly Ln2 I work with Liquid N2 and have since I was a kid that is witout a doubt Liquid Nitrogen. It`s not dangerous cause by the time it falls back down to his level it`s turned back into a gas. Very cool though :-)
Male 66
Amazing!
Male 4,431
^^ **WARM compared to the discussions so far.

Sorry about the double post. ;-/

Male 4,431
Look at the properties of the product guys and consider the assumed properties of the source! A bucket of water will not separate from very dense liquid to such a minimal density as to instantly form powdered snow. Instead, a bucket of water thrown like that would form, if it even could freeze so instantly, long, thin, dense ice chunklets that would fall to the ground as ice, not a powder. The "powder" you see doesn`t undergo a change in the video, especially not from cohesive, dense water to completely separated, minimal density snow as is implied by the description. It`s perhaps just snow to begin with. Or, much warmer than was implied, and then perhaps liquid nitrogen, which, thrown into a WARM climate, would flash to a gas...
Male 254
i don`t care wtf it is, it`s still sweet
Male 283
"this is in Regina Saskatchewan Canada it was done last winter when it was about -35 degrees ,and its true i have done it myself but the water has to be hot p.s.the bulding is the saskpower bulding"

It looks like at the University building in Saskatoon

Male 283
That`s liquid hitrogen
Female 23
WOAH! So cool!!!!!!!
Male 1

Female 56
It was water, boiling water. My BF was telling me about it yesterday. He saw it on the news. It was in Saskatchewan and it was -40c (-40f) outside.
Male 2,605
Water, huh? I must say I have my doubts.
Male 393
WOW
Male 889
Female 492
That`s awesome! We don`t get that kind of weather here.
Male 1
thats not water. If it freezes when he throws it in the air, why wouldnt it freeze in the bucket? and by the way, -30 c is not cold. In the artic, it can get to -80c with windchill.
Male 616
OLD! (just thought I`d say that)
Male 214
quicktime sux, so i cant watch
Female 130
SammyFrank, i`m a girl D:
Male 10
lol, great, i`ll do it this week end
Female 140
i can`t see it! stupid square, circle, triangle
Female 220
I don`t see what so amazing it just frozen water. I can do the same thing when it`s get to 0 degrees in february.
Female 85
Cool...
Male 315
Hehe, nice video!
Male 40
<READ!!!> thats not water! its liquid nitrogen. go to stupid videos.com and type in liquid nitrogen.
Female 116
Looks like bleached flour
Female 533
if it was snow it wouldn`y have spread out like that. Besides, how do you think poeple make fake snow at ski resorts where its not below zero?
Female 727
lol peesicles
Female 727
meh looked like they had snow in that cup to me
Female 533
AKappy: In some places it gets so cold that when you pee, your stream of pee turns into peesicles before it hits the ground. Mmmmm.... peesicles...

It`s not true. MythBusters tried it and couldn`t get it to work. Sorry!

Simcoe: You are so right about all of it. We did this test last year at home with just a thermal coffee travel mug and it worked. Almost no coffee mark on the new white snow. It was very cool.

Male 1,523
Yeah, strangergoat`s the best
Male 22
Its not snow in the bucket. It turns into gas, or something, snow wouldnt do that when you throw it up.
Male 78
in addition the guys only wearing jeans and no hat considering it would have to be far below zero for water to freeze that quickly it probably wasn`t water, just snow
Male 78
hey, i got an idea maybe it already was snow.....DEEE DEEEE DEEEE, drating retards

Female 192
Looks impressive to say the least, neat trick
Female 137
My mom has demonstrated this for me once. You have to use almost boiling water. I think it was around -10F when we tried it. In ohio. It didn`t work extremely well, I think it needed to be colder.

Female 46
Neat...
Male 2,216
Wow! Facsinating! I would`ve liked to have seen it close up. A desert one would be good, where water evaporates upon throwing!
Male 294
I`m impressed, and strangergoat is the coolest.
Female 290
looks wicked almost as good as the giant marshmallow one!
Female 182
HOLY poo THAT IS TIGHT! I WANT TO DO THAT!!!
Female 72
wow...
Female 429
if you pour a freshly boiled kettle of water out in siberia it will be soild ice when it hits the ground. =)
Male 346
ooo pretty :-D i like it
Female 379
Why would it be too dangerous for it to be liquid nitrogen? In my physics class in college, my TA started a liquid nitrogen fight. We had one girl pinned under a table and dumped it right down her back, and nothing happened!
Male 605
Well, my best guess is that it`s probably taken place in Saskatchewan or Manitoba.
Male 50
The second time I went to this page, my computer screen went all weird on me and the snow/smoke/whatever was green. o_0
Female 712
Lol
Female 217
woah! it turned into snow!
Male 1,132
i remember reading in a book that it had to be in the area of -75 (not sure C or F) for water to freeze before it hits the ground from 5 feet.
Male 2,616
In some places it gets so cold that when you pee, your stream of pee turns into peesicles before it hits the ground. Mmmmm.... peesicles...
Female 588
mmm, snowy.
Male 126
Why this is water and does work:
-It would be far to dangerous to try something like this with liquid nitrogen, plus there would probably be a lot more "steam" rising up the container.
-It likely is water, hot or even boiling water, the hotter the water the lower the oxygen content, the better it will work.
- -30C might work too, but the colder the better. This was probably done early in the day shortly after sun rise (on a clear day), the coldest part of the day.
-Water must be thrown up in the air like this so the initial volume (in this case probably 0.5 - 1 litre) sprays out over a large volume allowing water to cool down over a larger surface area.
-Moving objects have heat removed faster than stationary objects (same principle as wind chill). -Also for the American`s -40 C = -40 F.
Male 278
Thats Probably Liquid Nitrogen if it was water it would probably freeze in the bucket O:-)
Male 567
thats awsome, thats almost as cool as family guy!

Simpsons sucks compared to family guy

Female 55
die quick time dieeeeeeeeeeeeee!
Female 132
I expected it to freeze in air or something...but that`s impossible.
Female 5
I don`t think that`s water. I live in a country where the temperature sometimes drops below -30 Celcius and I have never seen water act like that. It would have to be really drating cold before that would be possible and considering what that guy in the video is wearing it can`t be that cold.
Male 1,030
^^ I`d say he`s guessing...
Female 130
i think it`s in saskatchewan, canada at like -40 degrees celcius(sp?) or w/e..
Male 2,567
woah
Female 1,211
cool...hehe get it?
Male 4,431
Photo shopped! Oh, no, wait... I meant...

Actually pretty cool! I`m not convinced it`s water that he throws in the air, but cool none-the-less. :-)

Female 785
I wanna stand in the middle of that! Then I`d need new warm clothes. O_O
Male 2,519
Looks nice.
Male 916
Location? Temperature? I wanna know more.
Male 220
Now that`s not a very inconspicuous way to plant anthrax in front of a federal building.
Female 122
AAAAAAAAAGH! I HATE QUICKTIME!!!!! Especially when it offers me a glimpse into a world which isn`t 80 degrees all winter, but then cruelly mocks me! But since that is the nature of Quicktime, why am I still frustrated? :-/
Male 99
how cold does it have to be? would that work with a -20F temperature?
Female 134
LOL! How awesome! That`s pretty cold.
Female 2,144
Woah.
