Firing A Supersoaker Filled With Boiling Water In -41°C Temperatures (Plus BONUS Geyser In Subzero Temps)

This is what it looks like to shoot boiling water out of a Super Soaker in -41°C (-41.8°F) temperatures. I'm sorry, but that is just too f***ing cold. Any of you live in places that get that cold? Here's what I want you to do. Look outside. What do you see? "Snow." Anything else? "My car." You get in that car and you drive. Did you hear me? Drive! "Which direction?" STRAIGHT INTO THE SUN.

Hit the jump for this video and one of a natural geyser in Iceland with similar results.

Thanks to Side Effect, which may include numbness, frost-bite, and regretting you ever took that job in northern Canada in the first place. And to tyler, who agrees temperatures that require putting more than shorts on are acceptable.

    those were clouds being born

  • Why water? You know what else boils easy as shit? Alcohol. Just sayin.

  • WhiteEagle2

    Alcohol would be hard to drink if it were boiling.

  • Jarno Christian Salo

    There would be no alcohol if it was boiling.

  • Didn't you see the video? It freezes instantly. That's what is happening.

  • WhiteEagle2

    Alcohol freezes at -173 degrees F. Boiling the water doesn't lower the freezing point, it just allows it to flash freeze in the -41 degree weather.

    However, I wasn't trying to be a troll and argue. I was drinking alcohol at the time and thought it would be sad if it were suddenly boiling.

  • Well I didn't mean rubbing alcohol... I'm talking like some 40 proof malibu or some sweet and sour and tequila, make an instant margarita?

    Come on, there's a chance this could be COOOOL!

  • Adibobea9

    Maybe it would cool down by the time it reached your mouth on the opposite end of the stream…

  • WhiteEagle2

    If the intent is to drink it, couldn't you just leave it un-boiled?

  • The Magnificent Newtboy

    And so it begins... already there will be a Russian youtube video of people drinking boiling vodka from a firehose at 50 feet.
