Here’s what happens when you throw liquid nitrogen into your own face for no reason

Er, cool?

Here’s what happens when you throw liquid nitrogen into your own face for no reason

"This is not one of those experiments that I would encourage you to try at home."

No sh*t, Sherlock.

This is Grant Thompson, a YouTuber also known as 'The King Of Random'. There he is, in that video down there, stood in his garden, on quite a nice day, throwing a substance that's used to burn warts off your skin right into his eyes and face. 

Why? Oh, only to prove a point. When viewers asked him why he wasn't wearing safety googles in a previous liquid nitrogen-based experiment, he decided to show them the error of their line of questioning - by hurling a thing that freezes other things instantly all over his head.

Here in the office, we had 10-1 odds on Thompson becoming a real-life Mr Freeze from Batman after such a ludicrous stunt. Alas, we saw no such outcome. In fact, thanks to a phenomenon called the 'Leidenfrost effect', our brainiac was left with no visible injury or super powers at all. 

Cool experiment, bro. Real cool.
