How Hot Is It, Really?

We here at Metroblogging DC know its hot outside. We see the heat waves coming off the street even from our high-up offices. We heed the Code Red’s from the Weather Service and dream about winter.

And we hear you bitching about the heat. We can hear you moaning now, maybe even going so far as to utter, “It’s hot enough to fry eggs on the pavement.” So we did a little test, a little mid-day experience to record just how hot it is really.

Watch, learn, enjoy, just how hot it is today:

    Don’t be silly, you want an egg cooked, you need an Apple Mac Book.

    Great video though, the closing line caused workers to stop at my desk wondering what I was watching.

    Dammit, I wanted the egg to look like my brain on drugs.

    Can we try the egg thing on the hood of a car? I don’t think asphalt is a good surface….

    the egg is still raw, Wayan. also, it’s kind-a wasted… well, maybe not. maybe people watch that clip, have fun, become more productive, and more money is generated to produce more a/c products.

    also, it’s hot to wear long sleeves. even though they are white.

    Don’t you need oil to cook an egg? I’ve never tried cracking an egg in an empty pan before w/o oil or something.

    Nice to see that Gridskipper’s paying attention to us. Problem is, while Gridskipper may be more scientific and better looking, they don’t know DC.

    Get on a rooftop around McPherson Square and you’ll not need to worry about frying. The Secret Service will pop a cap in your ass before you can even crack the egg!

    You’re nuts! And I love it.

    Why didn’t I think of this: dashboard cookie cooking!
