Teenager has stomach removed after drinking liquid nitrogen cocktail

I guess we'll be taking that out of the condiment rack.

A teenager has had an emergency operation to remove her stomach after drinking a cocktail laced with liquid nitrogen while celebrating her 18th birthday in a wine bar. [...]

Police said the bar had ceased selling all liquid nitrogen cocktails following the incident and had co-operated with all the agencies.

      I knew this guy. He had a huge ego before The Incident; not so much after. He also ruined the liquid nitrogen ice cream social I had set up for incoming physics students every year. This all happened the year after I graduated. Idiot.

    The slightly less tabloidy version put it at a piece of her stomach, rather than the whole thing.

  3. How long before this drink is available at DNA?

    Step one: get certified for scuba to learn how to breath, and how not.
    Step two: inhale to completely fill the lungs with normal air.
    Step three: a drop is more than sufficient.
    Step four: exhale continuously.
