Thread: Why is it

    Why is it

    That when I make my tea, if I don't eat it within 5 mins it goes cold. However, if I put the left overs into a tupperwear pot for the next day's lunch it takes 3 hours before it's cooled enough to put into the fridge

    You both have too much time on your hands.
    Simon no longer owes me anything, Dave does though.
    Floyd probably owes me at least twenty with the interest rolling up...

    Same reason it’s warmer on a cloudy evening.

    Must admit I was very confused at the suggestion tea should be either put in a fridge for the day after, or into Tupperware.

    Just get on and drink it up and make another one.

    Exactly, first correct answer on both counts.

    jfc Gary was merely talking about a meal. Just say, “a meal” instead of all this lower-middle-class ‘I’m considerably posher than yow’ dick-waving...

    Gary, warm your plate up before putting hot food on it.
