I'm looking to experiment with Liquid Nitrogen (for OC purposes). I'm in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and I have no idea where or how I can purchase Liquid Nitrogen. I've looked online but I can't seem to find a store I can get it from. I don't think it's something that can just be shipped like a regular piece of hardware.

Any idea on how I can get myself some liquid nitrogen?

Thanks guys.

Sorry, only have 2 Flux Capacitors and 3 Borg Holodecks. LN2 is on short supply.

i would check with local universities, specifically science departments... as long as your experiments are controlled and ethical, I don't see why they wouldn't be willing to share the source of their own liquid nitrogen supplier... they may even take active interest and allow you into a lab if it seems your ventures may be worth studying...

of course, if you're gonna be an idiot with it, then try eBay

Alex, If you're a student at Algonquin, OttawaU or Carleton you can get full access to liquid nitrogen for experiment purposes.
There is also a Liquid Nitrogen plant off bells corner's but I don't know if they sell to the public, always a great idea to swing by and have a chat with some of the workers.
If that didn't work I'd try at a car shop.....

I've been looking for the substance for a long time as well.

I know for a FACT they sell it on the shelves in Brownsville, TX. So if you can get it shipped to you, that would be the easiest !

Hope this helps you out Alex, and for anybody else to read this.
