Heat & Briar

Help Support Brothers of Briar:



Being a greedy sort where Embarcadero is concerned (which defeats the purpose, I know. Huffing it wrecks the taste. But the greed impulse dies hard as crabgrass), and the LatMan-ized pipes being very open and with thin cakes to boot, it is not difficult to find, after a minute of absentminded focus on something else, that the pipe has grown hot in the hand.

What's weird is, I find that by simply blowing on the hot spot, it cools dramatically and quickly. Like "hot" to "warm" in two or three seconds.

Heat conduction is very strange stuff -- as I learned doing silver soldering (working in silver). Counter-intuitive. As here. The intense heat is a purely surface affair.

Go figure :face:
