you guys don't know what you are talking about.  Patrick Norton of Tekzilla explains that it's safer to handle liquid nitrogen bare handed than with gloves. The Nitrogen is harmless if it rolls off your skin and is only dangerous if its allowed to pool and sit in one spot. Thus wearing gloves gives the liquid nitrogen that opportunity in case there is a spill. It could cause it to collect inside the glove or to roll up the inside of your sleeve. then your screwed.  Here's the Link to that video on youtube.

Definitely extremely dangerous. Someone should sue them. They should have brought in OSHA and homeland security. And where are the safety glasses?? Some dust could have been blown in their eyes and they would have watered up. They should have had an ambulance right there ready to take someone away, just in case.

You can put your Hand right into a tank of liquid nitrogen ( if you are fast ), 

because the nitrogen just will boil and convert into gas almost instantly, and because of that between skin and nitrogen there will form some sort of "gas"-layer. Compare it with a drop of water on a really hot kitchen-stove-thingy ( my english is not the best;) ).

So if you're not wearing any metal-stuff, like rings or wrist-bands, which get colder much faster, there won't be any harm.

So after knowing all that, would you be willing to dip your wang into a cup of liquid nitrogen for just an instant? I double dog dare you.

I dismissed the rest of the video based on that act and the fact that it has "masters" in the title with such a lax safety attitude about working with liquid nitrogen.
