Liquid Nitrogen Cocktails – The Trendy New way to get your Stomach Removed
The new trendy hipster cocktail is known as ’Pornstar Martini’ and is its probably the best way to have your stomach removed without having to be put on a surgery ‘waiting’ list.
On her 18th birthday, Gaby Scanlon suffered an adverse reaction after drinking a Jagermeister drink at a venue called Oscars, which is made with champagne and liquid nitrogen($14) to produce a really neato steaming “cauldron effect.” If fully ingested, liquid nitrogen can boil in the stomach, creating large amounts of vapour which can lead to severe stomach perforations.
BTW, the reason for that cool smoky effect, is that the temperature of the liquid is around -196C…surprise, surprise, Gaby began to experience severe stomach pains shortly after consuming the drink, and was rushed to hospital when she began to feel breathless.
Doctors at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary performed emergency surgery to remove her perforated stomach and save her life. She remains in a serious but stable condition, police said.
Police said the bar has stopped selling all liquid nitrogen cocktails after the incident.
TIL: Thanks to the ‘Liedenfrost Effect’, people can survive brief contact with liquid nitrogen unscathed. But longer exposures will cause ‘cryogenic burns’ and kill unprotected flesh in the same way as frostbite.
On a brighter note, people who have had their stomach removed can continue to live a normal life and eat and drink regular food, but they can only eat smaller portions and need to take vitamin supplements for nourishment.
