Boiling Water Freezes Faster Than Water at Room Temperature?

An interesting topic and one that’s still being heavily debated (after hundreds of years) … and no apparent answer. Thanks for providing the theory, Tony.

The “Boiling Water Freezes Faster” Camp

The “That’s BS” Camp

  • Joe Kissell from Interesting Thing Of The Day (ITOTD) (I’m not much of a scientist, but dropping wooden chopsticks into the test agents to see whether it froze or not doesn’t sound logical to me. Temperature aside, water freezes because all the particles have settled … throwing a chopstick in would disrupt that process … so yeh, don’t think this guy did it right)

And here was a debate on Digg back in 2007.
