    Yesterday at an event, we had liquid nitrogen ice cream.

    Today, my daughter called my husband in a panic, because someone had told her that LN2 was dangerous, and she had eaten two bowls! He reassured her that the LN2 all evaporates to freeze the ice cream, and that air is 80% N2 - perfectly safe.

    Poor kid, but at the same time, pretty funny.

    That's neat.

    Speaking as a photographer though(ie one who edits photos in colour on a monitor) I'd have to wonder how much screen calibration affects the accuracy of the results. I've pulled up pics I've edited on different computers and the changes in their appearance is kind of... (sigh) disturbing (read: "that's not what I was after" and "how do I edit for variations in monitor calibration?" ...sigh. Let it go, CCN, let it go). LOL.

    It was still fun though.

    Shouldn't effect it in general. If the monitor is calibrated warm or cool, or whatnot it'll be a global gamma correction so all of the colors would still be the same relative to each other. Worse case scenario might be if someone is like extremely cranked towards cool, then the results may not accurately reflect their sensitivity in the reddish area.

    DD5, lying on her back in the tub, waxing poetic.

    "Adrift… on the lonely river, I float out to sea."


    Every Sunday it brooded and lay on the floor. Inconveniently close to the drawing-room door.

    That actually made me chuckle. You have a real poetic soul there, doubtfulguest. Your DD is charming!

    aw, that's so nice of you to say, aquinas! it cracked me up, too - it was so wistful and dramatic - kind of like The Lady of Shalott, but with more bath toys. smile

    Dd3.8 is poetic like you dd, doubtfulguest. Actually, she is more of a singer/ song writer. This is what she belched out a couple of days ago as soon as she woke up
    Every morning, when I open my eyes
    I feel the love of your heart
    Your beautiful heart
    Pumping its love for me

    It was so cute!

    hee - that's great! and, ha - DD5 would adore that particular song - given her love of broadway and/or all things cardiothoracic!

    That's lovely! I can imagine your DD arranging a coffeehouse (err...hot chocolate house) in kindergarten.

    Maybe this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship for your and doubtfulguest's DDs through their mothers? smile
