    wtf are bars doing serving drinks made with liquid nitrogen in the first place? I worked in the industry for years and some of the clowns I used to work with, I wouldnt trust them not to do themselves an injury with a corkscrew, let alone industrial chemicals.

    you're here all wk?
  7. I've seen a demo where someone had put a handle in a jar of jelly, poured liquid nitrogen over it and used the end result to drive a nail into a plank. Imagine dipping one's hand into the stuff and striking it on a hard object and having hand shards all over the place.

    Moreover, WTF hadn't Health and Safety banned the stuff from bars? It's an obvious hazard.

  8. Probably the same reason they serve cigarettes and alcohol in them bars.
  9. No way man, cold crowd in here...i'll get my mountain hardware puffer jacket, fleece and russian hat.
  10. I have written safety courses for handling the stuff and have a library of images/vids of some of the injuries this stuff can cause...but amazingly, it appears a barman needs no training, but an offshore worker does wearing full protection does.

    I assume you wait until the stuff has evaporated before you drink it? Assuming you were daft enough to stand anywhere near a barman holding a jug full of the stuff. Whats next? "Shooters. Delivered with a real shotgun"? Jesus.
