"How dangerous do you think [drinking liquid nitrogen] is?"
"[Drinking liquid nitrogen]'s extremely dangerous."
To put this in perspective:
"I CAN BREAK THESE CUFFS!"
"You can't break those cuffs."

Why would they use liquid nitrogen as opposed to dry ice which is safer and gives off the same "smoky" effect. Is it just a gimmick?
"WHOOO! I'm drinking the same stuff Beakman freezes bananas with!"
...and I didn't mean that to sound like I hate Beakman. Far from it. I'd give a million stars to have him back.
Where's his autotune remix, dammit?
yeah i thought exactly that about the dry ice... even better dry ice carbonates your fuckin drink!!! But by the look of the video liquid nitrogren puts out some seriously violent smoke compared to co2 vapors

Are they sure it wasn't the Jagermeister that did it?
|memedumpster - 2012-10-09 |
How is it legal to serve liquid nitrogen as a beverage? Or even more infuriating, why is a law even necessary for it to seem like a bad idea?

Can somebody tell this poor American what the heck is wrong with that reporter lady's vowels?
|FABIO - 2012-10-10 |
Isn't it safe to put liquid nitrogen in your mouth, like the evaporating vapor creates a blah blah blah that prevents the liquid from freezing your skin?
But then people go on to think you can swallow it and said expanding, still quite cold vapor fucks half your digestive tract.

If it's so dangerous, why is this the first time it's happened? Was she literally the first person to ever buy one? Was there a mistake made?
After reading a few articles it's clear that no, this isn't how they make the drink and it was an accident. Why the fuck did I have to look this up? What in the fuck was this retarded segment trying to say?
The way they're discussing this is as though they're doing some anti-drug fear mongering. Seriously, alcohol is dangerous? I'll be the first person to say that it's a goddamn scourge but in this context, no, alcohol isn't fucking dangerous. It's not going to melt through your stomach because you drank a small amount of it. It's clear that this type of cocktail itself isn't extremely dangerous either. There's clearly a lot of people that enjoy this drink without this result, why the fuck are we even talking about banning it when you haven't even told us what the fuck went wrong?
Maybe she downed the thing while it was still smoking and she wasn't supposed to? That seems like something that would happen all the fucking time.
I think it's a goddamn travesty that there are people on the waiting list for organs when there are plenty of people in the British press that have perfectly functioning organs that are just going to waste.
Indeed. Everyone that has this doesn't have their stomachs frozen, so fuck it.

The New York Times printed a liquid nitrogen cocktail recipe just a week and a half ago:
Wondering how to keep the Thai basil in your daiquiri from turning black? Just splash it with a frosty puff of liquid nitrogen.
In a recent segment of TimesCast Tech, Dave Arnold, the director of culinary technology at the International Culinary Center, flexes his molecular mixology muscles and demonstrates how to make a classic Thai basil daiquiri using a tool few bartenders possess: liquid nitrogen. The extreme low temperature preserves the basilís color, resulting in a vibrant emerald cocktail.
I get what Blue is saying. The reporter didn't do any follow-up for the "WHY" section of third grade journalism.
It's clear they've been mixing these drinks for a while. This is the first incident. WHY?
John Holmes Motherfucker
Well, I'm not sure if you can blame the press for this. I'm guessing that the bartender is not making himself available to the media to explain his legally actionable fuckup.
my guest is she downed the drink with the liquid nitrogen still in the drink. the result would be that the expanding vapor would blow up your stomach like a ballon along with frostbite and on everything it touches. this sounds like a dumb gimmick like flaming cocktails; it was only a matter of time until some unlucky bastard got hurt by the collective stupidity

There are no good cocktails from England. This is a fact of science.
Unless the apocryphal rumor that the French 76 was invented by English soldiers is true, then there's one.

Just a public service announcement: Alcohol is bad and will destroy your life and also one time I heard some MMA fighter went to a bar and then later that evening ripped his friend's heart out of his chest. Ripped it out of his fucking chest and then ate it!
Alcohol is better known by it's street name "Murder Juice".
Alcohol will poison you to death! It's withdrawal can kill you. Alcohol causes small holes in your brain. Alcohol will settle in your spine and when you inadvertently crack your spine you will get drunk. Drunk people are responsible for 1/3 to one half of all violent crimes. Alcohol is often enjoyed in combination with that music you don't like. There's a woman that got drunk and put her baby in a microwave. That last one was a joke but I Googled it and found out that it's happened multiple times, and the only drug implicated was alcohol, though only in one case.
Doubling, tripling, and quadrupling-down on being a child is much better than admitting that making an analogy between alcoholic drinks and liquid nitrogen. Putting a cigarette in your mouth and putting a loaded gun in your mouth are both dangerous.
That making said analogy is false, rather.
I heard it more like this:
"Do you think it's dangerous?"
"What, drunk people willfully ingesting liquid nitrogen? You're asking me that?"

My bar will feature cocktails with explosive peroxides and metal fulminates.
I'm a Jack and phosporous man myself, just don't hog all the cesium poppers like last time.

seriously though... what are the doctors plans for keeping this girl alive after her FUCKING STOMACH is removed... can you get a transplant? Or does all digestion happen in your intestines and they can do some weird surgery? GOD THAT IS THE WORST THING I EVER HEARD.
