    I live in Winnipeg, the coldest city on earth per capita. We`re colder than siberia. I can tell you I`m doubtful that this is only -13F. That was an entire pot of water. I believe you`re talking here maybe -25F at least.

    In Louisiana, we turn boiling water into a way to cook tasty crawfish.

    Or, we turn it into tea... then put it on ice with sugar.

    Boiling hot water will actually freeze faster than tap water when atomized. If he had taken cold, tap water and done that, it would have not worked.

    It`s -26C outside right now! Waaa!

    Our very own @osirisacends made a video of his boiling water throwing & posted it! I can`t find it though.

    It`s still amazing to watch :-)

    This isn`t wizardry, it`s the same boring old crap you posted last year. Just change the name of the website to I-am-boring-old-s h 1 t why don`t you.

    "the coldest city on earth per capita."
    ?o.0?

    How does that work? You divided the temperature among the residents?

    @Gerry1 There`s colder "cities" but they`re small cities, eh?
    Winnipeg has 700,000 people, so for cities our size? It`s the coldest by far. Colder than Moscow even!
    Also very windy, windier than Chicago...

    Winnipeg!

    Guessing it is not snow (flakes) but tiny frozen drops? Still cool though.
