The earth atmospheric pressure has dropped by %6. It is caused by a decreasing magnetosphere.

Boil some water. It now boils at 176 degrees.

Major doom.

Just boiled an egg to test it out.

Tasty but quick.

...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


Learn some chemistry, moron. What you're referring to is dissolved gases in the water being replaced by the salt when it dissolves. Water can only dissolve so much, when you throw the salt in it displaces dissolved gases. It doesn't produce an "immediate rolling boil", it produces a transient burst of trapped gases which bubble quickly out of it as the salt replaces them in the solution. Yes, I know, you're not convinced, you've seen it. I've corrected many dozens of people in person on this very issue, once you're convinced throwing salt in water makes it boil there's really no hope to convince you otherwise, but other people reading might want to know.

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.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1064613


The boiling point of water (and all other liquids) is dependent on the barometric pressure.

For example, on the top of Mt. Everest water boils at 68 °C (154 °F), compared to 100 °C (212 °F) at sea level.

Conversely, water deep in the ocean near geothermal vents can reach temperatures of hundreds of degrees and remain liquid.

[link to en.wikipedia.org]


Here is what should happen to the boiling point of water at various elevations above sea level:

Approximate Boiling Temperatures of Water

Altitude
Temperature

Sea Level
212 degrees F

984 ft.
210 degrees F

2,000 ft.
208 degrees F

3,000 ft.
206 degrees F

5,000 ft.
203 degrees F

7,500 ft.
198 degrees F

10,000 ft.
194 degrees F

20,000 ft.
178 degrees F

26,000 ft.
168 degrees F


High Altitude: Water boils at less than 212°F (approximately 96°F). Each 500 foot increase in altitude causes a drop of about 1° in the boiling point.

Sea Level: Water boils at 212°F and simmers at 190°F.

[link to whatscookingamerica.net]


OP, here are the possibilities:

(a) the water you are boiling has many minerals dissolved in it (it is not pure water)

(b) you actually live at a much higher elevation than you thought

(c) your thermometer needs replaced

(d) the atmospheric pressure has changed
