Minnesota, it’s so cold that… if you throw a pot of boiling water off a seven story building, it vaporizes before it hits the ground. Watch and subscribe to the Minnesota Cold Weather Experiments: http://www.youtube.com/nziegler . Special thanks to Steve Carlisle for his assistance in this video.


  • Pot of boiling water
  • A very high building
  • A really cold day


  1. Boil a large pot of water on the stove or on a burner. (You may have to reheat it when you get to the top floor.)
  2. On the roof of a very tall building, carefully approach the edge.
  3. Throw the pot of water off the edge of the building.

Helpful Hints:

  • Make sure that it is a building that people do not walk next to. If not all of the water vaporizes, you may burn someone with the boiling water.
  • Have someone watch it from below (not directly below). That’s the best view.
