bah, screw this competition then.. i ain't got the money to be spending 5 dollars a lb on liquid nitrogen

now maybe dry ice i can afford

and on top of that... do i want to spend 150.00 on a top of the line dry ice pot?! NO.... and i don't know how to work all the foaming and what not to prevent my board from freezing... and i don't feel like learning.... YET......
