How to supercool water?

filling a bathtub with the substance, throwing the person you hate the most in the tub and throwing the ice cube in the tub right after …. it would be over

such evil minds in this place

i love this evilness

Nah, don’t just throw it in you gotta flick it dramatically over your shoulder without looking as you walk away, preferably with a darkly humorous one-liner.

“The cold never bothered me anyway”

This is perfect

i hate to burst everyone’s bubble but that liquid seems to freeze only with contact on ice and not at the temperature of its surroundings so given that living breathing humans are warm trapping someone in that by merely throwing ice is not going to happen since our own heat will prevent the blue liquid from solidifying

common sense-

According to wikiHow:

  1. Pour 20 ml/1.25 tbsp of purified or distilled water into a glass.
  2. Put the glass in a bowl taller than the glass.
  3. Fill the bowl with ice so the glass is surrounded by ice. (NEVER actually put ice in the glass.)
  4. Sprinkle two tablespoons of salt over the ice. (again NEVER sprinkle salt in the glass, we want the water to be as pure as possible.)
  5. Optional. Put a clean thermometer in the glass, or take a leaf out of the Mythbuster’s superheated water book and put a bottle of normal tap water in with the purified water. When the tap water freezes, the pure water’s been supercooled.
  6. Wait about 15 minutes or when the thermometer shows the water is below freezing. If the water in the glass is frozen you failed.
  7. Drop a piece of ice in the glass, watch what happens.
