???? It's definilty NOT explosive (as in a violent reation with oxygen)
It does tend to expand A LOT in volume as it evaporates. When contained in a closed loop, there will be a lot of pressure. That might lead to an explosion of the loop itself. But not of the LN2 itself.

nah, don't bother, I bet we'll hear all about it in the news anyway


In that extremeoverclocking link Tarantula gave, they say it takes 6000 PSI to keep it in a liquid form so be sure it doesn't take a match to make the neighbourhood go poof

what ill happen is that the relative huge amount of energy from the match wil cause a lot of evaporation at once, Probably throwing LN2 across the room.
But that's not an explosion, it like flashboiling water from a microwave. It will not ignite (like throwing a match into a bottle of methanol)

But I'm willing to try both
