At -41F, cute bored Siberian throws boiling water out the window, hilarity ensues (video)

It actually is quite a cool video.

And yeah, the Siberian’s cute. He’s in Novosibirsk.

Oh, and -40F is the same as -40C.

First, he shows the temp:

Then he smiles cutely, pot of boiling water in hand:

siberian-water-one

Then he throws the water off of his balcony:

siberian-water-two

And finally, you see from below the water turn into a cloud of ice:

siberia-water-three

And here’s the video:

    I was expecting a picture of a dog throwing water. Too much Xmas, I guess.

    Do this with a pot of coffee and you will know how I got through graduate school. Caffeine snowcones.

    Can you believe it? I’m still picking tomatoes from my garden.

    Once in Gunnison Colorado when it was about 30 below I sneezed and my mustache broke off.

    Wouldn’t the cold have a somewhat unfortunate side effect on the organ from which the urine flowed?

    Also, the evaporation die to the high temperature helps – hot water freezes faster than cold water because the evaporation has a cooling effect.

    My grandmother claimed that when it was -60 degrees F out in the winter, if you spit – it would freeze like little marbles in midair and roll down the sidewalk…

  • Mike_in_the_Tundra

    My husband and I did that too.

  • Island In The Sky

    lol I was thinking the same thing: how cold would it need to be for it to freeze before it hit the ground

  • nicho

    You should see what happens when you pee.

    Guess we should enjoy doing this while we still can…

    Cool…literally. And he’s got one of those crazy Russian cats!

    Yesterday Chicago had its first snow in something like 290 days. Here in Bloomington, IN, we have dropped to 25 F overnight, and had steady winds gusting in the thirties and snow all night. There are at least three plus inches on the ground here.

    Now that is not Siberia, but is also not a ‘normal’ winter cycle. That is first hint of snow here in southern Indiana this season. I have been still picking kale, collards, lettuces, and radishes, and turnip greens from my vegetable garden. And it is almost New Years.

    Of course here is where the anthropogenic climate change denialists chime in that because it snowed, finally, it proves there is no global warming. Meanwhile, in the real world, if we do not get some really hard freezes, the insects that decimated the tulip poplar trees here in Indiana will NOT die off in sufficient number, and their overpopulation in the coming warm season will probably destroy one of the major hardwood trees state wide.

    -41 C is actually closer to 42 below zero. I remember some thermodynamics problem in physical chemistry which asked how much energy would be removed before water would freeze as it falls.

    I used to blow bubbles, with the messy plastic ring thing, in our garage when it was nearing zero or below. It’s really cool – they slowly freeze in the air and go all crystalline, then hit the ground and rip.

  • Jim Olson

    I did this once out the back porch in Minneapolis when it was -22F. So cool.

  • Drew2u

    It doesn’t have to get that cold. Here in the frozen tundra we used to do that all the time when it gets below zero. It’s still really neat!
