Geoff, if we ever do meet up in real life I will be bringing a bag with me just for you.

I thought it was Chell at first and was going to get angry.

Also, I really hope you two get each other in the secret santa this year. The war would be amusing.

Hmmm...I wonder if the boiling point of club soda is higher or lower than that of water?

Looks like we might find out. Hey, Geoff: wanna hold this thermometer for me? Oh, no reason...

I am sorry but my money is on the fire. Fire lends it self to overkill in a way just not possible with ice.

Also there are substances such as magnesium that burn in water.

It's okay, I've got it all worked out.

I put on my anti-fire outfit, run up to Elomin and kick him in the between-the-legs area. Simple.

Club soda is basically carbonated water with baking soda right?

So we can use the boiling point elevation formula for ionic compounds:

DeltaT=IKm

DeltaT is the change in temperature, I is the vant hoff factor(about 1 for baking soda) K is the Ebullioscopic constant(.512 for liquid water) and m is Molals of solute(I'm asuming significantly less than 1 mole per kg of water).

So Club soda would have a very slightly higher boiling point than water, but still higher none the less.(If you're wondering what effect the carbonation has on the boiling point it should have none. It will just leave solution faster as the club soda gets closer and closer to boiling.)

Thank you General Chemistry 2(I'll have to tell my Professor about this in lab today)

Oh no I messed up. The Vant hoff factor is closer to 2 than one. Still a less than one degree C raise in boiling point.

Geoff since club soda doesn't have an appreciably higher boiling point than water you may as well use water against Elomin's fire.

You should be considering the specific heat required to heat club soda to its boiling point and the enthalpy of vaporisation required to boil club soda rather than just its boiling temperature.
