Yeah some of the descriptions are a little off. Cool slush say they spit out crushed ice but it's just chilled pwater, no melting involved.

Fact:

Did you know if you can take a bath in boiling water on the top of Mount Everest and NOT get burned?

I'm afraid not. Water boils at 71'C atop Everest; immersion in 60'C water is enough to give you a full-thickness burn in under a second.

You can get water to boil in less than a minute on Everest, but to actually cook anything in it takes well over half an hour on the short end.

Technically, slush is a compound of solid and liquid water (an eutectic system), thus is considered to be in both states at the same time, with the solid/liquid ratio fluctuating a bit but not going toward a unique phase. The description is actually quite accurate !
