Default Teen injured drinking liquid nitrogen

PRINCETON A gifted 15-year-old student from India had to be rushed to the hospital after drinking liquid nitrogen during a science class at Princeton University.

The class was part of a program run by the Connecticut-based Summer Institute for the Gifted. It isn't affiliated with the university.

The students were performing a popular experiment in which liquid nitrogen is used to make ice cream.

Nitrogen liquefies at negative 328 degrees Fahrenheit cold enough to cause burns.

The Summer Institute says the boy was in critical condition and has been upgraded to stable.

"Gifted," eh? Is that a new, politically correct way of saying "Special Ed?"

Apparently the warning label stated to:

Wear goggles, gloves, boots, apron, face shield. Do not funnel fluid and do not allow it to touch your skin. It neglected to say, however, "DO NOT DRINK." *rolls eyes*

If I remember right... there is some kind of myth about being able to drink it without it harming you... because of the difference in temperature.


I guess that myth is busted.

Is it possible he did it by mistake? We all seem to be labelling this kid as an idiot when we do not know the circumstances...

Although, if he picked it up and said "watch this"... then he's an idiot.

Judging this case by the standards in the Cali gay kids death, there should be several entities sued here:

Princeton (gobs of cash)
Summer Institute (They probably have some jack, and are at least well insured)
The company that produced the liquid N (Probably well-heeled)
The US Gov't (George Bush surely had something to do with this)
Bill Gates (Didn't he attend Princeton for a semester or two 30 years ago?)
