How to Blow and Pour Liquid Smoke

Smoking is bad for you! But let's be honest, smoke itself looks sorta cool. Here's a video of smoke looking like liquid, which makes it even cooler looking. You can even swirl the smoke around and pour it out like water.


To get that "liquid smoke" effect, the guy used an unfiltered cigarette (or joint for thicker smoke) and a cold glass. The key, he says, is to not breathe as you release the smoke into the cold glass or it'll throw things out of whack. The cold glass supposedly cools the smoke and makes it settle under the warm(er) air, which allows it to take on liquid-ish properties. Cool! Until someone gets cancer. [Reddit via Geekosystem]


I do more or less the same thing when I blow fog.

* - I've never smoked and never will, but....

If you compress the air in your mouth and then let it "roll" out like from his mouth then filling the glass, it will look like you are outside on a cold day....even in 90 degree heat. Of course, once the hot, moist, compressed air equalizes with the rest of the atmosphere, it disappears. Still a neat trick for little kids to see because they don't understand how it works.
