I was not expecting the cool noises.....
 
2013-02-12 07:35:02 PM  
that was cool
 
2013-02-12 08:48:21 PM  
I like it better when the ice explodes.

Isn't this a repeat?
 
2013-02-12 08:50:53 PM  
That was a lot less exciting than I was expecting

What would have happened if he had dropped thermite on the nickel?

no. shut up.

That was awesome!

This reminds me of a demonstration my AP chem teacher did.  He hollowed out a block of dry ice and poured in some magnesium flakes.  He then lit the magnesium and drop another block of magnesium on top like a lid.  The whole thing lit up like like a giant light bulb as the magnesium stripped the oxygen out of the CO2 to burn.  It was intense.

Bah.  Anybody can hock a nickel.  Call me when they drop a $2 pistol on ice
 
2013-02-12 09:49:25 PM  
Not too much uncool about that.

I like the sounds it makes in the other video with the cup of water

Probably same guy. The coffee mug looks similar

It doesn't have the final "SWOOSH," but if you put a penny on a block of dry ice it will scream interestingly.

So hot metal will melt thru a block of ice?   Hmm who woulda thought
 
2013-02-12 10:16:27 PM  
This is like "China Syndome" takes a leak.
 
2013-02-12 10:25:22 PM  
Oh hey Ice, are you doing anything today? I was in the neighborhood and decided to drop in.

Krymson Tyde: What would have happened if he had dropped thermite on the nickel?


It would have created an obvious shear pattern and brought down the entire block of ice. Metal doesn't melt ice. Open your eyes.
 
2013-02-12 10:48:21 PM  
the nickel in water was like something out of an alien movie... it was kinda going thru stages, freaked me out whe it went black
 
2013-02-12 10:55:17 PM  
you mean something hot melts ice?  no freaking way, i dont believe it, because of my science
 
2013-02-12 11:18:39 PM  
I didn't realize nickel expanded that much when heated that much. It makes sense, but for some reason it surprised me.
 
2013-02-12 11:39:56 PM  
Drop it in liquid O2.
 
2013-02-12 11:46:00 PM  
I wonder if there was any chance of the nickel ball shattering, sending shrapnel everywhere?
 
2013-02-13 12:15:48 AM  
Where is this guy getting all this nickel, and why is he drawn to making balls of it?

I studied thermodynamics in high school. I remember being most impressed by the specific heat coefficient of water. It was the master of them all.

 
// hydrogen bonding is the key!

// don't really know what I'm talking about
 
2013-02-13 01:47:37 AM  
Well, yeah. That was cool.
 
2013-02-13 03:35:27 AM  

dj_bigbird: that was cool


R.A.Danny: Not too much uncool about that.


Notabunny: Well, yeah. That was cool.


Apparently none of you saw the first part of the video.

Tee hee.

Red hot metal melts ice. The sky is blue.
 
2013-02-13 04:27:01 AM  
That was completely unnecessary and possibly a little bit silly but I don't care cos it was totally cool.

You+me baby. Except I expressed my "meh" with an awesome Monty Python reference.
I don't understand the gushing comments here - and I'm a glass half full person generally.
 
2013-02-13 05:59:43 AM  
So the kushmaker tradition lives on?

I see you missed my comment.
 
2013-02-13 08:23:26 AM  
I liked the nickel before it was cool.

Wow, so a red hot metal will melt ice?

2013-02-13 12:40:26 PM  
I found that strangely satisfying.

2013-02-13 03:12:03 PM  
It looked yellow hot to me.

So this is how they did 9/11?
