      Lard is not the same thing as hydrogenated vegetable oil.

    You could try the same experiment in a paint sute that way you would not have the plastic wrap fall off

  • Nightshade Kelly

    It was probably saying low because the thermometer it's self was getting to cold

    In 2nd grade my class did an experiment with this where we raced to see if it worked. On person hand their hand covered in crisco and another not and they both put their hands in icewater. That was fun. I completely forget about it till now

    could you in theory make a suit that is essentially bubble wrap, but instead of air bubbles it is crisco bubbles? would that work at mitigating the amount of crisco you used while still providing a layer? itd be more time consuming to fill, but curious if it would work

    Use the bag to cover your hand before putting the bag covered Crisco bag. Him: scoops up Crisco with bare hands Me: You could use a spoon you know.

    You should try making a crisco coat by sewing together two vinyl/plastic raincoats (one inside the other) and filling up the space between them with crisco. Should be cleaner and easier to put on and take off than seran wrap :)

    1:50 "Because it gets really cold up in Antarctica at this time of year" 1. Polar Bears don't live in Antarctica. They live in the Arctic. 2. Antarctica is down, not up. 3. It's really cold in Antarctica all year round.

    How can they still sell shortening? Who buys death in a can? Lard is actually better for you, but still pretty bad (but makes great pie crusts).

  • GamingBoots

    seriously, you think you'll get frostbite in that weather???

    Today, February 6th 2021 in the Canadian prairies the temperature is minus 30 Celsius or a high -36 Celsius for overnight low. That would equal-22 and -33 Fahrenheit. This is not including any wind which makes it feel colder. Frrostbite can happen within seconds to minutes.

  • Kathryn Svendsen

    You never said what the thermometer reading low meant. Could it have been because the thermometer was too cold to work properly because it was outside with you?

    Vegetable shortening is NOT LARD, and continuing to call it lard is obnoxious and makes you look ignorant and hateful. Also, I want more Kennen; he's probably the smartest in the group and we see him the least.

      Would be very difficult to keep stable (not runny) at temperatures approaching body temp. And it would let zero moisture out, so you be covered in sweat in no time... Might work for gloves though, as hands generally stay a bit cooler than your core.
