Really popular science

Ever have a warm 6-pack sitting around and wished you could chill it in seconds? Well, now you can.

Yes, I saw Mythbusters do the whole beer chilling episode. However, the geek cred for their icy brine solution is way less than the one seen here.

Fascinating. Surprised that the Mythbusters guys never thought of this.

The second law of thermodynamics abides!

Seriously, who needs to chill that sixer? Unless you're drinking stuff you shouldn't be, RT or slightly cooled is fine.

Okay, I'll grant the middle of a hot summer but still...

And BTW, mu.nu is getting majorly killed with spam right now, which is why it's taking me so long to post this comment (over and over on the button).

Seems to be an ongoing problem here at MuNu. Pixie battles valiantly, but it seems like a finger a very, very leaky dike. Ah well, I'm just glad real comments get through on occasion. While I appreciate offers to lengthen my weenie, or invitations from Tighthole Tina and her slutty cheerleader friends to have a good time, they get a little repetitive after a while.
