<p>Dry ice is a lot of fun to play around with. You just need to be super careful, because dry ice can also cause a lot of problems. I have never heard of the metal coin trick, my friends and I would always make dry ice bombs. We would make them in a friends backyard, drop it and run behind cover. I wouldn't suggest it if your not prepared.</p>
<p>LOL put a a handful or so of dry ice cubes and dump them all at once into a body of water like a small stream. It's AWESOME!!!!!</p>
The thing I like about dry ice is, when it melts, you don't need to mop it up... <br> ;)
I remember one time where a science teacher that I had brought in some dry ice for the lesson of that day and for us to play with. It was really cool till one of the... lets say 'IQ lacking' students put a couple of sizable pieces in his coke and screwed the cap all the way on so it wouldn't fizz out all over the floor. Thankfully the teacher caught it in time and unscrewed the lid, and needless to say that was the last time we got to 'play' with dry ice.
Levetation, &quot;And people still pay to see It&quot;, odd. I been keeping an eye out for Ya'. Thanks. <br> P.S. I'm the Guy that &quot;Tested a 9 V battery and It turned hot. Your suggestion was It was shorted.? I was thinking It shorted in When I tryed It on My Metal Detector.? I just realized earlier, I had tested Hell out of that battery on My - little Ol' Harbor Freight - $ 3.oo Multi Battery tester.
Wait...didn't you touch the dry ice?!
If we're busy listing all the things to not do - dry ice and water inside a tightly sealed softdrink bottle is really bad. After 1-5 minutes it makes a massive bang and send plastic shrapnel flying for up to 40 metres. Not recommended.
its also good for getting small hail dents out of your car just place some in the dent and it will pop out
Interesting, but I would recommend pulling the eating dry ice video because this actually happened. A young lady recently had an alcoholic drink with dry ice and swallowed it. It permanently damaged her stomach for life. This is a dangerous and should not be exhibited.
Levitating bubble trick was magical...
And You still find time to make a living..? ==&gt; By using Yer' Youth right.? Hang In. G-G
My devious mind is working over time already. *evil Laugh* <br> <br>Thank you for posting this Sir...I know who I wish to play a few pranks on already.... 8P
Your videos are AWESOME!!!! But, be careful with enclosing the dry ice in in something air-tight - dangerous! I almost hurt myself this way!!! At least you have a warning...also you can buy it at many Walmart Superstores too!
