Fun fact: liquid compresses. Just only a tiny bit. Sound travels through water. What carries it? Pressure waves.

Anyway, that's beside the point, which is that fluid that is only a fluid because of the pressure it's under is called compressed fluid anyway.

skinink: I still like Terminator 2, but not so much since people kept asking, "Why didn't Skynet just send the Terminators to kill Sarah Connor when she was a kid, or kill her parents?

Skynet did not know which Sarah Connor was the mother of John Connor. It therefore could not have known where Ms. Connor lived during her childhood, nor would it be aware of the identity of her parents.

You shouldn't use the term "compressed liquid nitrogen". That draws a parallel to propane or other room temperature liquid gasses. Liquid nitrogen is not held in it's liquid state by compression, it's held there by the temperature. It's endothermic evaporation helps keep the liquid that's still there cold. A relief valve has to be used to let the vapor pressure out, because you can't engineer a transportable container that could handle the pressure that would be generated if you warmed it to room temperature.

Compressed liquid nitrogen. Interesting, since liquids aren't compressible. it was liquid nitrogen, which is stored under pressure. But the liquid itself is not compressed.

Mentioned this to my chemist better-half, and all she said was "That's expensive."

Ooh. That's just cold.
