I got to play around with liquid nitrogen every day in my postgrad days. Our local beer store never had my favourite beer in the cooler. Best way to chill a bottle of beer, pretty f*cking fast, that sh*t's at -196C. Just be sure you put on the mitts before you drink it...

look, an expensive mess! Actually, it was amazingly cheap. That was less than a dollar's worth of liquid nitrogen, the water bottle was free, and the trash can and the ping-pong balls weren`t damaged.
Also, there was nothing to clean up afterwards -- just pick up the ping-pong balls and maybe a few stray shreds of water bottle. Everything else would evaporate.

@TadnJess Schools get to do all sorts of illegal things. Some work with nuclear material, others have students cut up dead bodies. I personally went to a cooking school where they gave wine to 18 year olds.
