Or, poor man's liquid nitrogen. I'm in college, but unfortunately no chem classes, nor do I have the money for a Dewar's of my own to have filled. I heard of this technique from a friend of a teacher's son's maid..or something, it was a while ago.

Full credit for this idea belongs to wbeaty over ar Youtube,
I'm just the instrustables messenger;)

Step 1: Supplies

- Two pop bottles or equivalent. (1 2L, one 354ml or whatever the personal size ones are)
- Dry ice(Pellets probably are the best option)
-99% isopropyl alcohol( Can be found at most grocery/drug stores.)
-Something sharp to cut the bottles apart with.
would this shatter a rubber ball?
Well, only one way to find out!
I would assume so, if you let it freeze long enough!
This is a lot like wbeaty's demo on &quot;Poor man's &quot;Liquid Nitrogen&quot; Youtube <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d11TFkeqbwY.">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d11TFkeqbwY.</a> He even describes that it will stick to you like napalm in his description. If you were inspired to make an Instructable because you saw hid demo, you really should give some credit to where you got the idea from.<br/>
The napalm comment however I derived myself after having stuck my finger in the mix. Haha.
Why?!? doesn't that burn?
did it burn ur finger???
I also put a bit on my fingertip when I made napalm, this was to feel the viscosity of it I presume that the author as I, did this before testing the burn characteristics of napalm.
So i assume that alcohol has a much lower freezing point than water, is what makes this possible, does anyone know what temps you deal with when doing this
<p>It is, and he gave credit at the start </p><p>&quot;Full credit for this idea belongs to wbeaty over ar Youtube,</p><p><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d11TFkeqbwY" rel="nofollow">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d11TFkeqbwY</a><br>I'm just the instrustables messenger;)&quot;</p><p>Pay more attention.</p>
He said up top he got it from that youtube video, and he put the guy who made it too. i admit it's not obvious, but it's there. (plus it's fun shattering things with it.)
Holy..you're right, I was absolutely no recollection of where I knew about this from! Adding credit now, sorry wbeaty!
So can I not make dipping dots with this if I made it then? I found out how how to make dippin dots and it involves liquid nitrogen.
<p>does the taste go some time of time go away?</p>
<p>can i dip something in the liquid nitro and then eat it?</p>
<p>No way, this is a super cooled liquid (alcohol) not actually liquid nitrogen. The results of dipping food in wouldn't be good. Yuk!</p>
<p>if you made dippin' dots would it be safe to eat them?</p>
how long does the alcohol stay at freezing temperatures?
not liquid nitrogen, just cold alcohol
how do i make a holding tank fo liquid nitrogen
Are the two pictures of frozen weed?
Haha, it's a maple leaf little buddy.
like were suppost to belive that<br />
Oh!!! Now I see it!!
Awesome! Thanks.
No problem! make sure you check out wbeaty's video! It is such a fun thing to see something like a flower, shatter like glass.
