...you can raise the boiling point by adding salt...
 Quoting: BRIEF AND TO THE POINT

'tis the other way around. Adding salt to water just beginning to boil will produce an immediate rolling boil. Adding salt lowers the boiling point.
 Quoting: oniongrass



If you throw it in at the point of boiling you are aerating the water and causing the release of more gas, but that doesn't change the physics of it...
Poor people do poor people things, and rich people do rich people things.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

I dont make up the rules of the universe, i just live by them.

I need to go to Walgreen's and buy another thermometer to duplicate my results. I need more evidence before i release the news to the mainstream.

You better use a high accuracy industrial thermometer. Then keep us posted with your findings. I don't know really how an open system like that would work, but I believe that bigger pressure would reduce the boiling point, right? At least this works for closed thermodynamic systems

So.. how come the altimiter in my plane reads the same as ever?

If you were correct it would read a higher altitude than it does.

The baro here is 29.87 this morning.

That looks pretty normal to me.

*** BREAKING NEWS *** latest measurements for all elements confirm DRAMATIC REDUCTION OF THE EARTH'S ATMOSPHERE

Those elements include, among others, O2 and the radius of the atmosphere.

Notes
(1) This reduction is what one would expect from the Laws of End Times.

BTW, 176 degrees Fahrenheit is 80 degrees Celsius. If something like that was happening (a drop of 20 degrees Celsius of the boiling point of pure water), it would be already in the news since many industrial processes need boiling water and if it was really happening at lower temperatures then we would have many accidents already.

It's way more likely the water isn't pure. A little calcium or salt in the water will have a big effect. Retry with distilled water.

Just to clarify. I did not use any salt in the water. It was RO water. about 3 cups in a stainless pan. Natural gas stove.

Flukes are good. But just I've said, your thermometer is probably not so accurate. I was working in a company that we had to do temperature measurement and you cannot imagine how hard it is for different applications to use different sensors that are very susceptible to inaccuracies due to wrong calibrations or due to wrong driving circuitry.

Yeap, that's why I suggested something that it is used for industrial purposes rather than a commercial one. These sensors are not linear at all and they are a PITA for most of the non specialized (in sensors) engineers since they have to design special driving circuitry that compensates (not totally accurate though) for the non linearity of the sensors. If you try to search for books on electronics and sensors, you'll get confused by the amount of them, since it is a hot and difficult topic especially when you actually have a real problem to solve.
