If you are looking to obtain liquid nitrogen just to play - oops, I mean experiment - with, I am thinking that you are going to find it much too expensive and cumbersome to get any on your own. The minimum quantity that the company that supplies my lab will sell comes in a 160L dewar that is five feet tall and weighs probably 100 lbs. It costs ~$170 just for the nitrogen, not to mention the delivery and cylinder rental fees. I doubt anybody is going to sell you a thermos full. Besides the cost, liquid nitrogen is not a toy despite what you might have read on the internet. There is a serious risk of severe frostbite and even death from asphyxiation. You also need the proper equipment to handle it, else it will quickly boil away or cause a sealed vessel to explode. If I misread your post and you are actually someone who can handle the above, going to local.google.com and searching for "welding supply" or "gas supply" in Houston or Austin should give you some places to start. Or make friends with someone who works with it and will let you "borrow" some for a couple of hours.

When I first saw this, my reaction was that what you are proposing is really dangerous. A quick search of the Net came up with two similar questions on GA ID:508536 ID:26108 <--- read that one carefully - the Answer is very informative There is a chain called AirGas ( http://www.airgas.com/ ) that sells liquid nitrogen, they have stores/outlets near Austin and Houston, I can't determine whether those outlets stock Liquid Nitrogen.
