    The bottles do have an unpleasantly high bursting point, the Anarchists Cookbook suggests putting in a vinegar and baking soda mixture, then putting the bottle in the car of somebody you don't like. Which I guess means somebody tried it.. :(

    Since theres a hole in the cap for the hose, probably the hose would be blown out and the contents would shoot out of the bottle like popping the top of a champagne bottle. Icky.

    Why would you eat bad ice cream?

    True, but the dry ice wont last very long, at least not at room temperature.

    It actually takes quite a while for the bottle to build up enough pressure to burst. I think the increased pressure may reduce the sublimation rate of the dry ice? Like how a pressure cooker works? I don't know, just a thought.

    pressure will slow down the sublimation but still, if you've got enough dry ice and water in there and shake it, you've only got a couple seconds to huck it. check it out on youtube, I wouldn't want to be anywhere near that. lol
