It might be an ocean of liquid hydrogen. Hydrogen freezes at about -430F (around -260 C for foreigners), which sounds like it could be about in the ballpark.
This appears to be an internet show, not a TV show, right?

Right, maybe we should burn him at the stake for heresy!
You true believers have absolutely no idea how foolish you come across.
Oh, sure, who doesn't like to hear this?Between this, and "metric system is better lectures" makes me feel small. Almost makes me overlook that fact that none of these wise-asses would exist, except for us.
