    This would be great for one night stands and bad dates as well as hiding from the guy you have a restraining order against.

    I doubt that was liquid nitrogen as that stuff, if you spill it on yourself, is lethal.


    Though I could be wrong.

    I feel that the title was a little misleading. In the UK a poof is a slang term for a gay. See where I`m going here...

    ^^ Nah Maddog, that`s liquid N2 all right- worked with it for many years. If you spill (a small amount) on yourself, it pretty much immediately evaporates due to your body heat- at worst you might get a nasty cold burn.

    If you were to submerge your hand in it, THEN you`d be in real trouble...

    hahah, i loved doing that in science...

    me being a nerd, i and a group of others went around to other schools and did stuff like THAT!

    hahah, it was amazing..

    and it does give you a small burn, kinda like when you tilt the can of compressed air upside down and spray someone....

    "I doubt that was liquid nitrogen as that stuff, if you spill it on yourself, is lethal."
    It is, if you spill it directly on yourself. I heard that when liquid nitrogen hits air, it evaporates to quickly to do much of anything.
    However, my science teacher told my class that in his college class, this one girl spilled l.n. on her arm, and it literally FROZE her arm. She put her froen arm on a stoll to support herself, and her arm "snapped" off. >.< I can only imagine that if it is true.

    I remember watching a show where they were using liquid nitrogen to flash freeze things... They froze a banana, hit it against a table and it shattered. I think the arm thing might be plausible, but it would require more than just placing it on a stool.

    I remember stuff like this. It was the days I didn`t want to go to science class. I had idiots in my class. The fear of them dumping it over my head overpowered the fear of getting caught ditching. ):

    To support what the other knowledgeable people have stated, pouring a small amount of liquid nitrogen onto your hand (or arm) would at most cause a small burn. In college we used it for all kinds of experiments with super-conductors, and we played with it all the time. The story about the girl who froze her arm and broke it off, unless she actually immersed her arm in the stuff, is undoubtedly a stupid story to frighten kids.

    I`ve seen someone who got hit with a large spill and they look very similar to someone who`s been exposed to a fire...it destroys layers of tissue. Just be careful with it, though, and you`ll be fine.

    As for the cost, we used to get it for about 85 cents a gallon, but most companies won`t sell it to you unless you`ve got a permit for using hazardous materials.
