: The other 'neat' thing are those wonderful dry ice/ethanol microfuge
Or how about a dry ice loaded mirofuge launched from the end of a 20ml
(red) pipette filler? Like a grenade launcher!
Or dry ice in a screw top eppendorf. or a 50 ml tube.
My personal favourite is to spin around on my lab stool/chair about 15
times while looking at a point on the ceiling. Grab hold of of your
chair to avoid strange ;looks.!
Of course you can always drop some dry ice into someones gel tank when
thay are not looking and watch there reaction when they see it smoking.
BTW anyone looking for a student ;-)
