I just ate my first pizza topped with hamburger.

Pizza.

Hamburger.

It should have been wonderful! ... it wasn't. How can two of the most wonderful foods in existence make such a bad combination? I just don't get it.

Try eating a pizza topped with smoked oysters. I scored a whole--well, maybe half of one--pizza to myself in high school one day by showing that I would actually eat such a thing. Only one other person in my high school band of about 40 musicians would touch that booger. Of course, I also ate snails and ducks' feet during a trip to China 12 years ago.

Did you taste the water from the pot, or did u just touch it? Also, are u using an enclosed container (i.e. lid on top of the cup)? What kind of cup are you using?

I used a spoon to taste the water out of the pot, and before it came to a boil I poured the water into a tall blue plastic cup/glass (no lid). Stir the hot chocolate and... POOF, to hot to drink (too hot for me, anyway)  angel

Mystery of life #439,623... why is it that the water in the pot that is heating on the stove seems like it's the perfect temperature, yet when I pour the water into my cup of hot chocolate mix, it suddenly becomes scalding hot, so that I can't drink it for 15 minutes?

Did you taste the water from the pot, or did u just touch it? Also, are u using an enclosed container (i.e. lid on top of the cup)? What kind of cup are you using?

I used a spoon to taste the water out of the pot, and before it came to a boil I poured the water into a tall blue plastic cup/glass (no lid). Stir the hot chocolate and... POOF, to hot to drink (too hot for me, anyway)  angel

The spoon (metal) conducts heat better thn the plastic cup, so the spoon absorbs more of the energy from the water, lowering the avg. temp of the water in the spoon relative to that in the cup.

Also, I believe that since the volume of water in the cup is greater than that in the spoon, the average temperature of the water in the cup is higher than that in the spoon since the former contains more energy (as temperature is a measurement of the average kinetic energy of the molecules)

So I think it's a combination of these.

edit: I had a bunch of other stupid ideas, but i think these are most likely correct (or close to it).

Interesting, thanks Smiley

I don't agree with the second one thought. If it were true every substance in bigger container would have higher temperature than in the smaller one. I would add the bigger area:mass ratio in the spoon than in the cup (the greater area, the faster energy transfers).

So I take a bus out to go and get some groceries this morning (I sold my car in December, whole other story). I'm half way through the check out and it dawns on me... I'm buying way too much, and there's no way I can take all this stuff home on a public bus. So I call a cab--which is gonna cost me an extra $8, but what can I do? So my cab finally arrives... and it is... a bus!?  Cheesy  What the heck? Usually they send, you know, a cab. A car cab. I can just put my packages in the trunk and were off. But not today--today they had to send a bus! When you tell them that you want picked up at a grocery store, shouldn't they assume that you're gonna have a bunch of bags of groceries?  Roll Eyes  Grin

did that bus cost as much as the cab?

Lol, same price. It was just a small bus with the cab's logo on the side. Cost me $9 (+ tip) to get home either way.
