Myth Busters - Hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk

Well, contrary to popular belief 113 is not hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk. Or in a Cast Iron Skillet.
Sade and her friend tried it out. One on the concrete drive, one in the cast iron skillet. Eggs were room temp. the pan had been preheated all day and we began at two in the afternoon.
I checked them after 5 minutes, after 20 minutes, and after an hour. It was looking kind of hopeful.

But we found that it was only hot enough to dry an egg. No frying occurred. Stay tuned for more Hotter than He!! Experiments.

♥ That's crazy! You'd think with how hot black and it being iron can get that it'd work!
