Sometimes, you just want to see someone smash a Pepsi with a hammer.

The taste of a new generation, Pepsi, has long played second fiddle to Coke, which is far superior. But now soda #2 has something over big red: This video of someone covering a can of Pepsi in liquid nitrogen and smashing it with a hammer. 

Coming to you from science YouTuber MrGear, this video delivers as promised. MrGear pours liquid nitrogen on stuff, like berries and lettuce, and sees if it'll shatter in his hands. It's extremely cathartic.

What is this black magic?!

Here's a good video explaining what's actually going on here.

Probably a good idea not to try this at home, unless you have a T-1000 terminator chasing you.

There are lots of ways to blow up 1500 ping pong balls, but the best way is to use liquid nitrogen in a trash can, as this video proves so well.

"We tried again, but with liquid nitrogen. My coworkers halve already threatened me if I go near their liquid argon supply. This is what happens when scientists get toys to play with. Inside the cooler is a plastic jar with liquid nitrogen up to a mid-point in the jar. The fan blows down into the jar, and the cool air comes off the side out of the second fan."

"Hey man, the cooler's broken again. What should we do?"

"... Go get some science, we'll use that!"
