Schaudenfreude...in so many ways [Jul. 15th, 2009|07:55 am]
terribleturnip
Please understand that I feel just horrible for this guy. That if I had special powers to turn the clock back and make this unhappen -- even at some great personal cost, I would do so. Because losing your hands when you're a chef is just...horrible.

Because of that shred of empathy I will refrain from any ranting about molecular gastronomy and what I think of it. Although you may be guessing correctly "Oh, please."

But what tickles me here is this article. It's so freaking German. Especially the ending bits of the article. Now you know where I get my TMI gene.

(The Schaudenfreude, btw, is in reference to the liquid nitrogen. Cause it's cold...not joy at this guy's misfortune. Even someone interested in molecular gastronomy doesn't deserve this fate. But liquid nitrogen...schaudenfreude...that's FUNNY.)

Yikes!!!.....from the Rocketeer

Wow, I feel sorry for the guy. however, there's a reason you don't find many liquid nitrogen vendo-machines in your neighborhood. I will guess he didn't pre-chill the container that failed. That's a big mistake with cryogenic materials.
Gee, I'm slinging tech-speak around like I know what I'm saying.
whoooooooooooosh........pop!
