    Whats the propane torch for? Just in case someone takes a drink from one of the mugs of LN2 expecting a hot sip of coffee and instead gets a mouthful of freeze that they need to thaw really really fast?

    All expense? That includes food, hotel, and possibly prostitutes right?

    What about the purchase of video games? A new TV? =p

    Anyway.... I can't wait to see the finals, I bet the speeds are going to be ridiculous.

  • mrecio
