What has spruce got to do with "religious"?

OK, this is a bit silly. I hope you realize that a high ampereage (sp?) is a LOT more dangerous than a high voltage? You will probably survive a 25V jolt; but if you get 25A through your body, you'll turn into jelly before you can think. :-P

Slippery? I assume you mean oil? [snip]

Ummm... but what about granola? Or pita?

OK, now I'm getting hilarious images of somebody trying to "ipefyci" some sponges in the oven. :-P [snip]

[snip] Um, shouldn't this be the other way round? At least, deep-frying is not *wet*, it's dipping something into boiling oil (which is closer to burning liquid than boiling water--you'd know this if you've been burned by cooking oil before. :-P) T -- BREAKFAST.COM halted...Cereal Port Not Responding. --YHL
