Re: Water now boils at 176 degrees! Doom!
I was making dinner and thought of this thread. I was making peas so figured what the hey. I have a Hamilton Beach thermometer. It started boiling at about 195 degrees. Then I moved the thermometer over to the part the was boiling and it went up to about 203 degrees. I'd have to do it again, but it is weird to watch it happen. I am 680 feet elevation in Ohio.

The thermometer will have to touch the bottom of the pot, but to get a true reading of the boiling point, a body of water should be heated in an oven so as to be 100% accurate...and the thermometer must be completely submerged for the duration...

Thank you! I also have digital thermometer made for the oven. Which one to use? Figure maybe tomorrow I could be a boiltard for the day just to see if anything happens. Fun experiment anyways.

BOTH...The answer to "which one to use" is always both or all of the above...
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.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

Re: Water now boils at 176 degrees! Doom!
Looks like someone missed the Op's point !!!! The point is the boiling point of water and not boiling an egg you Tard!!!

Oh yea....back to the point....I just boiled water in a kettle and checked the boiling point with a thermocouple. Almost exactly 100 C (212 F).... at 800 Ft above sea level.

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.

Boiling itself is not what cooks the egg, it's the heat...you can raise the boiling point by adding salt...also every pound of pressure added increases the boiling point by three degrees...

No, I understood OP to say the boiling point has lowered and that his egg cooked quicker...That's what he said, but boiling water doesn't always equate to hot water...

The thermometers were probably made in China ... I don't think the equipment is the problem sadly..... Yes but paid good money for poor quality!

Great.

Boiltards on the march.

Quick! My compass is not only off 30 degrees but so is my boil temp!

Grab a pan! Garb a compass!

Report back here!

Forgot to add...as I was testing the boil temp I noticed the sun was rising and shining in my west window!

No suprise because last night while checking to see how far off my compass was the moon was upside down!
