Contrary to what my so-called brother
claims, superheating water
is not an "interesting consequence", but a bloody nuisance
. It can happen if you try to reheat coffee
, say (which in and of itself should be considered a crime
), and you leave it there for far too long. So far so good -- until your try to add sugar
(or even milk
, for heavens' sake)...
The resulting mess (boiling coffee overflowing the cup) can take a while to clean.
(Not that I'm bitter because it ever happened to me or anything...)
