After some trial and error, a solution of dish soap, sugar, and water was found to create bubbles that would freeze before hitting the ground. With air temperatures outside around 33 below zero, and winds at nearly hurricane force, the "experiment" was attempted in several different sheltered locations at the Sherman Adams State Park Building where temperatures were a few degrees warmer. One of the locations was warm enough that one could actually see the bubbles crystallizing, while the second location was several degrees colder, and the bubbles froze almost immediately.
33 DEGREES BELOW ZERO? I'm not gonna lie, that's waaaay too cold for me. Also, anything below 55. You laugh now but just wait until your balls freeze to your leg. I tore them off like a band-aid -- there was a casualty. o->-< .
I'm sure you already knew that no two snowflakes are alike, but did you know most women's breasts are different sizes too? I know, I can't believe it either! Anyway, this is a chart used to classify which shape category a snowflake falls into. I posted a bunch for reference ... / Continue →

Seen here looking colder than an Antarctic witch's nips, Youtube user samantha683 prepares to throw a cupful of boiling water into the -30Â°C (-22Â°F) air and show you what happens. SPOILER: she accidentally hits t... / Continue →
This is a short video from Sweden of ice crystals beginning to form on a soap bubble in -30°C (-22°F) temperatures. Sure it would be cool to do yourself, but the only experiment you'll see me running when it's that f***ing cold is how long I can stay under the covers.
