Stupid internet, I just left a pot of water boiling for 2 hours while I checked email and LJ and now not only is it bone dry but the pot has changed colors and is making all kinds of creaking noises as it cools.

Damnit.

i believe you are supposed to fill it with rock-hard red beans before you do that. then you can smell it burning - for days.

allow me to recommend the failed_recipe community to you.

You should save it, just in case there's a museum of burnt cookware that needs donations.

Apparently domystic's response here got deleted. She said:

To which I reply that my pot is more of a copper color at this point.

Which is creepy, because it's a stainless steel number.

I'll start giving it a hot water/vinegar soak, and see if we can
get some of those hard water salts off it.

This is another live proof of my theory that computers are the true Time Warp Devices. Kinda like Jodie Foster in Contact from the persepective of the people that stayed home.
