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 ;-)
