Boiling water challenge sends at least 8 people to hospital during polar vortex...


Have you seen videos of people throwing boiling water into the air to watch it freeze instantly? Itís the latest viral challenge, and itís sending people to the hospital.

Within the last view weeks, parts of the United States have been affected by the polar vortex, which occurs when circulating winds from the northern pole travel southward and cause below freezing temperatures.

To test just how cold the weather has been, folks have been tossing boiling water into the sky to turn it into tiny ice crystals.

It really does not freeze, it vaporizes. The water has to be very close to boiling, such that when thrown into the air, the pressure of the water above it disappears and it all flashes into water vapor. The temperature has to be really low, so that the humidity is very low.

You are a Dumbass if you throw it over yourself, and deserve what happens to anyone throwing boiling water onto themselves gets. The heat from the water has to go somewhere, let it be the air 10 feet away from you, not your body.
