  1. 1) This is awesome! Liquid N always impresses me.

    2) I would totally love to do this to someone right now.

  3. Stupid, disgusting and wasteful. That liquid nitrogen could have been put to far better uses.

  5. Why did the heart freeze to different colours? Or was the colouration already there (albeit less "white") prior to freezing due to the extraction process (e.g. anoxia, etc.)?

    • replying to C's comment, the heart turned white because everything in it was frozen. hot metal is red, but when you freeze it, it turns to a metallic silver. same with a heart. when its warm, it's a nice bloody red, but when you freeze it, it all freezes and turns greyish white.

  9. good to know about the effect of liquid nitrogen; what happens if it falls on a person; it could be for scientific use; but good to know about it. thanks
