Insult to intelligence

Author: mr_rusk from Colombia

Although I am a LIFE fan, I must point out that this episode is crowded with absurd facts that insult the viewer's intelligence. For one thing, the writer expects us to believe that a person can freeze to death by inhaling liquid nitrogen. In the first place, oxygen and nitrogen dewars have gas phase outlets; if the mask were to be hooked to a liquid outlet, the liquid squirt would probably produce a frostbite burn before being inhaled. If cryogenic liquid were actually inhaled (in this case, it would be irrelevant if it were oxygen or nitrogen, since their temperatures are similar: there would be no use in changing the dewars) the first breath would seriously burn the airways, but it would never deep-freeze the victim. To deep freeze a person with liquid nitrogen, it would be necessary to immerse it in liquid or very cold gas (as in a freezing tunnel); the result would be that the person would freeze as a frozen steak. In no case would this produce the brittleness that is showed in the episode... can you make a frozen steak crumble by touching it with a pen? It was sad to see Crews and Dani wallowing in such a stupid plot!
