Liquid Carbon Dioxide! (Really)

I got something awesome in the mail today- liquid carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide is a gas at room temperature and sublimates at atmospheric pressures, skipping the liquid phase altogether. However, when put under several atmospheres of pressure, one can observe liquid carbon dioxide at room temperature, though much above that, it passes its critical point and becomes a supercritical fluid.
