On drinking liquid nitrogen

[ #20474 ]
Liquid nitrogen, it's not just for breakfast any more! Story here.

Dangerously close to a Darwin Award winner...

  • I ran across that story yesterday while reading LiveJournal and figured it was an urban myth, but I think it's the same story referenced in a medical discussion [findarticles.com] I found by googling "ingesting liquid nitrogen". It seems some kid thought it was paste and ate it.
    • Where did you read about someone thinking it was paste?

      I got a kick out of this school experiment gone awry, having been given a black-eye and injuries requiring stiches in fifth grade by a wooden bowling pin in some silly P.E. game. Maybe it's not good to always follow your teachers' instructions...
