Yeah, a Goth friend used to do this.
We'd have pot-luck meals at his place - with his cannibal cat (yes,
it ate other cats), his two igaunas, big frogs in the fish tank and
small lizards in the bathroom, and the scorpions and black widow
spiders snug in their own containers.
Then we'd go out on his balcony (big enough for a round table). He'd
put on a white lab coat and some big insulating gloves - put the
liquid ice cream mix in a steel bowl - pick up the little steel
thermos - twist off the cap - we'd see the vapor escaping - he'd dump
it into the bowl - and kapowee! ice cream - rather hard ice cream.
And a good time was had by all.
