What to do with dry ice

I have a little bit of dry ice and I can't think of what to do with it.

I have already

  • thrown it into the pool
  • made bubbles with it
  • pointed my laser into it
  • froze a quarter in it
  • a bunch of other things that I cannot remember

Any Ideas? I have an hour left with it


they are illegal you know

Grab a 2 liter bottle. Cut the dry ice into pieces to put into the bottle. Fill up around halfway, add some hot/ warm water. Close. Run. If you want, do that to 3 bottles. Tie them all together along with a rock. Throw it at the bottom of the pool. Run.
Just for informational purposes, in the United States, due to the heightened awareness of terrorist threat, and the fact that gangs were doing this with plastic bottles which had roofing nails taped points outward to the outside of them, the definition of WMD( weapons of mass destruction) has been expanded to include any sort of container which is loaded with dry ice for the purpose of it resulting in an explosion. Detonating anything which is considered a WMD is a felony and pretty much does everything but take away your birthday. So if anyone were to think about trying what was mentioned in GorillazMiko's post they should do so with extreme caution and paranoia. Now is a good time to share some of the rules I like to live by. 1. Don't hurt yourself. 2. Don't hurt anyone else. 3. Don't do anything that will get you arrested. 3a. If you do anything to get arrested, don't get caught. 3b If you do get arrested, get the best lawyer you can afford. 4. If you forget anything else, never forget rules 1 and 2. Fuzzy
I think dry ice bomb would fit the definition of an IED than it would a WMD But just to be safe make sure you register it as a dangerous device and pay the 200 dollar Class III tax. :-)
Not my call in this situation. I was just passing on what a "friend" of mine passed on to me after their training. I mean, because gang members in California were using frozen paintballs they were trying to outlaw paintball guns. Pretty much nothing surprises me anymore. I just hate how the justice system tries to steer the car by twisting on the exhaust pipe. What follows is a short rant to that nature. If there were no guns or knives in the world then criminals would beat us in the head with metal pipes to take what they want. The government would have to start metal pipe control. Eventually plastic pipes would be included since under certain extreme situations severe injuries can be inflicted with a plastic pipe. At some point we would have to do away with all of the pipes so that the criminals would not be able to easily get their hands on them. We wouldn't have plumbing, so people in larger cities would die in the thousands from dysentery and thirst but it would be okay since we had gotten rid of all those evil metal pipes. Then the criminals would start using sticks to take what they wanted. Then we would have to have stick control. Pretty soon we would have to cut down and burn all the trees to keep the criminals from having ready access to sticks. Then we would have to burn down all the houses to keep them from tearing off parts of the houses and using them as sticks. After that we would have to start living in caves again,(you cant have a tent without tent poles and those are sticks)(you also cant have concrete buildings without scaffolding and or cranes and both of those have metal pipes in them which are dangerous!) but it would be okay since it would be because we were dealing with things in such a civilized manner. Then the criminals would pick up rocks to commit their crimes. Then we would have to have rock control. Any normally law abiding citizen caught with a rock larger than three centimeters in diameter on their person, their property or concealed on or within their personal mode of transportation would be fined and possibly imprisoned. Law abiding citizens would have to go over the whole world breaking up all the big rocks into little rocks so that the criminals wouldn't have easy access to big enough rocks to hurt us with. Or possibly we could bypass all of that and just start by actually putting the criminals in prison and let them start breaking up the big rocks into little rocks now and save the trees, the houses and all the effort that would be expended the other way?
Whoah, that... is... AWESOME! And completely true, here in Australia everything is band, so many time I've wanted to go to America just to let of a nice loud firework on a date other than that of the Queen's Birthday. Mind if I copy and paste this and put it in an email and send it to all my friends who will send it to their friends who will send it to their friends, until it has been sent to every body with an email address? Regards, Kryptonite.
Yep! (Note to self: Create a cache of pipes sticks and rocks under the floor of the barn.)
(Note to self: Stay out of Skunk's barn.)
It's not too dangerous these days. All we have is a couple of guard-roosters.
That's like saying you've got pint sized dragons guarding the place...
If they could only breathe fire....
