[bksvol-discuss] Re: OT: how to detect boiling water

Like I said in one of the messages the drop test itself doesn't
concern me.  Getting the amount of the mix to do the test with does
concern me.  I have uncontrolled shaking in my hands and arms, even
when I could see that has caused me to touch hot surfaces by accident.
 Being around such surfaces when I am not 100% certain of their
location makes me pretty nervous.
