T. Kihula -
Thanks for having us over - it was a pleasure to hang out in the Kapili Room and really soak up the atmosphere (among other things). That witco fountain is fantastic.

One question though. Naomi noticed what appeared to be steam wafting out of my ears on Sunday - does that mean I drank some of that dry ice?

Also, enjoyed having the visitors over at our place, glad you could stop by. Please remember to dance energetically, but be sensible.

-Randy

The chocolate fountain was a hit



Yes, I had quite the Augustus Gloop experience with that thing.

So someone tried the experiment! How well did it work? No problem with the CO2 smothering the flame? The flame looks a little orange in that picture.

The first couple of attempts smothered the flame, or kept it really low. Then Mike had the idea to try to light the flame a couple of minutes after the dry ice was added to the drink - that way the CO2 fog would settle down a little. It did indeed work, but the lingering CO2 still cut the flame height down by at least half if not more.

...intalking with Mike about it, the trick to making it work may be using a taller volcano to get it further out of the mix.

Or perhaps design a two chamber drinking bowl... one chamber for the dry ice effects which would allow the 'fog' to seep out the sides of the bowl, the main chamber being the drinking area with a volcano in the middle which would be further away from the escaping gas.

Hmmm... let me patent that idea real quick

I think I know someone who just may already be working on something kind of like that...but that's more than I should say.

I think this bowl has a volcano that is higher than the rim. I think it'll probably work with dry ice:
