Okay, reading through the comments, I'm seeing people trying to correct OP, but getting it wrong themselves, so, let's review some terminology, shall we?

Evaporation is a shift from liquid to gas (often without aid). We can all agree that this is not what is occurring here. Boiling is essentially the same thing, except instigated by an external heat source. That is how the water starts out in the video.

Condensation is a shift from gas to liquid. Some may argue that this occurred, but, the shift was so instantaneous from gas to liquid to solid, that, honestly, that would be the incorrect term (and no, that is not a cloud, it is snow). As a matter of fact, this shift, from gas to solid, is called deposition, and is likely occurring in minute amounts.

Freezing is a shift from liquid to solid. That is, in fact, the majority of what is occurring in this video. The water is tossed out, into an environment so cold that it almost instantly goes from 100 degrees C (212 degrees F) to 0 degrees C (32 degrees F), and continues to plummet, forming a plume of dispersed snow.

People have also been tossing around sublimation. That is a shift from solid to gas, and is very clearly not what is occurring. Again, they're probably thinking the opposite, which is deposition.

Well, I hope that this can help people out, and may stem some of the arguments over semantics, to we can just go "wow, this is pretty... cool."

tl;dr the water is freezing, stop fighting, lol temperature pun.

-20C makes it hurt to be outside. I can only imagine what -40 is like...
User avatar #37 to #30 - thatscrewedupkid (12/17/2012) [-]
it gets about -40 once or twice a year here in northern Wisconsin, so cold they cancel school, frost bite in about 5-10 mins

you can hear it freezing. that's ****** awesome
User avatar #48 - ickalanda (12/17/2012) [-]
Fun fact, the Fahrenheit and Celsius scales meet at -42 degrees, so -41C is equal to -41.8F
User avatar #54 to #48 - fuckponiseatcaviar (12/17/2012) [-]
I always thought it was -40. Guess it was just an estimation.
User avatar #57 to #54 - ickalanda (12/17/2012) [-]
It is at -40, just a typo in my original comment.
(I use the numpad for numbers for those of you thinking "but 2 and 0 aren't even close")

I don't think evaporation means what OP thinks it means...
#28 - John Cena (12/17/2012) [-]
-41°C can even make a Norwegian freeze!
User avatar #45 - mexirican (12/17/2012) [-]
lol and its 65 degrees in texas and people avoid outside as much as possible (18.3 C)
User avatar #55 to #45 - fuckponiseatcaviar (12/17/2012) [-]

User avatar #58 to #55 - FreddeMM (12/17/2012) [-]
In finland we call this summer.
User avatar #60 to #58 - fuckponiseatcaviar (12/17/2012) [-]
lol. At least it doesn't get up to 110 F

That's what I imagine Hoth to be like.   
   
Exactly like that.

damn i hate it that im used to fahrenheit
#22 to #20 - fuckingniggerjew (12/17/2012) [-]
its super cold (usual winters are 15~20) thats where i live
User avatar #24 to #22 - BlazeBluex (12/17/2012) [-]

If anything, the stuff in the video goes on in Novosibirsk, a russian city.

you mean -41F? wont they all be dead in -41C?
User avatar #15 to #4 - dealtorfer (12/17/2012) [-]
-41C is only -41.8F not much of a difference if you ask me.
User avatar #16 to #15 - newguyontheblock (12/17/2012) [-]
Thanks man. That was said 5 hours ago
User avatar #5 to #4 - newguyontheblock (12/17/2012) [-]
-41c = -41.8f
User avatar #10 to #5 - newguyontheblock (12/17/2012) [-]
Why did I get thumbed down? Haha it's true.
User avatar #13 to #10 - Carnictus (12/17/2012) [-]
I thought same thing, it's okay man :) I thumbed both.
User avatar #7 to #4 - millenia (12/17/2012) [-]
-41C won't kill you unless you're out there for a longer period of time. Hell, I've worked in -35C to -40C temps when I was still a mailman.
User avatar #2 - ithinkimfunny (12/16/2012) [-]
You mean condensing..
#6 to #2 - John Cena (12/17/2012) [-]
you meant freezing.... condensing is when gas turns to liquid...
User avatar #11 to #6 - ithinkimfunny (12/17/2012) [-]
No, the cloud you see is the evaporated water (it was pretty much cooking) that condenses into little waterdrops, like a normal cloud.

retard
User avatar #14 to #11 - drego (12/17/2012) [-]
isn't that sublimation?
User avatar #12 to #11 - Crusader (12/17/2012) [-]
That is a cloud of snow
User avatar #63 - imamawesome (12/17/2012) [-]
it was so cold that my computer froze
User avatar #52 - imnotrobert (12/17/2012) [-]
That's condensation you idiot.
#62 to #52 - John Cena (12/17/2012) [-]
Condensation is Gas > Liquid dude. Might wanna stop calling other people idiots...
User avatar #64 to #62 - imnotrobert (12/17/2012) [-]
oh, you know what you are right, sorry.
#50 - makeeh (12/17/2012) [-]
In my experience, that kind of a temperature isnt all that bad, but if its windy aswell, thats when it really gets freezing
User avatar #49 - onenightstand (12/17/2012) [-]
I thought it was cold when it's 50 degrees...
