   ...Ouch, IMHO, I wouldn't recommend the use of cryogenics
   to fabricate a steering wheel hub.  I am really surprised
   that the sleeve didnt break into bits when hammered- or
   worse, split apart while driving at speed.

   LIN is lots of fun to play with- we use it during demos to
   freeze roses and tennis balls and smash them to itty bitty
   pieces, but it requires careful handling and storage to
   prevent _serious_ thermal burns or even asphixiation from
   rapid O2 displacement.
