Re: Teen has stomach removed after cocktail
Doctors have removed an English teenager's stomach to save her life after she drank a cocktail made with liquid nitrogen.

Gaby Scanlon was rushed to hospital and diagnosed with a perforated stomach on Thursday after reporting breathlessness and severe pain.

"The premises involved have fully cooperated with all agencies and have suspended drinks involving liquid nitrogen."

There is only one plausible explanation here. She thought it was a Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster.

Yes and that is terrible. But um ... not to be insensitive, SHE drank it. No one forced her.

And why is this shit for sale in a bar anyways? Seriously? What dip shit saw dry ice and thought "Hmmm that would make a pretty neat drink"?

So yes, it's terrible. But hello Action; meet Consequence.

That just sounds like a bad idea. Even dry ice can damage tissues.

It's extremely dangerous. You've got alcohol, which in itself is dangerous, we've got liquid nitrogen which is a dangerous chemical. People should not be fooling around with these sorts of things.
 Quoting: smilesun

Nitrogen a 'dangerous' chemical? Hey fool, have you ever breathed air (78% nitrogen) before?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24697960


Who's the fool? LIQUID nitrogen, not gas. It's like dry ice, and once it melts it expands to about 90 times its size I think, so it'd rupture the stomach and burn the oesophagus.
As I've grown older I've learnt that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing people off is a piece of cake.

Liquid nitrogen has become an increasingly popular method of instantly freezing food and drinks after it was used by television chef Heston Blumenthal.

Although it is commonly used to chill glasses or freeze ingredients thanks to its impressive clouds of vapour, the substance can also cause severe cold burns to the mouth and throat.

If fully ingested liquid nitrogen can boil in the stomach, creating large amounts of vapour which can lead to severe stomach perforations.
