Out of the Blue

Well, the weather reports were once again infuriatingly accurate (when did that start happening?), and we got dumped with some more snow here in the New York area, though this was not a nor'easter (I believe this one was a mild Alberta Clipper), and I don't think we got hit nearly as badly as the middle of the country. This is the fourth major storm of the winter, which is only one-third over as of today, so we're not out of the snowy woods yet. In fact, the Farmers' Almanac forecast for this area includes the word snow no fewer than six more times. Weee!

No genius, cold air condenses. That's why you want to make sure your tires are properly inflated, especially in the winter!

Where do they find these people?????

I think he knew that full well. That was staged, and he was just playing straight man. Why they thought this needed to be illustrated by him seeming not to grasp an obvious point is beyond me, however.

Cool vid though. However, I'd be nervous sticking my face so near a vat of liquid nitrogen (which inherently makes the point in and of itself, btw), even without jamming a balloon into it. If the balloon did happen to burst, it would have been that much more of an interesting clip, albeit a gruesome one.
