  1. I was actually hoping the dry ice would start burning. I heard that hot Magnesium will form Magnesium oxide by stealing Oxygen from the CO2 bond. So the CO2 would be ignitable in that way.
    Does that not happen at all?

  2. where do you get dry ice, where do you get magnesium, where do you get liquid nitrogen? guys if i ask one of these things they would hand me to police for terrorism 🙂
