@kev This is because at a certain temperature the aperture of the bagel starts channelling heat from another dimension. This amplifies the bagel's own temperature considerably, making it the "hottest substance known to humankind".
Side note: Doughnuts also have heat-channelling-capabilities. But they go largely unnoticed, since few people heat their doughnuts before consumption.
I can safely say that the donut laws of heat transfer demand that every part of a donut you normally touch to hold it while eating is supposed to be the point of highest heat transfer. Not because science. But because it knows you want the hot donut. It knows and is spiteful. The hot donut is angry. The hot donut will die fighting.
> On a lighter note - toasted bagles with bacon and avacado is the tastiest thing known to humankind!
Cream cheese or bust!
@ejg I'm not going to lie, it was a close call between phili and avacado, but the avacados needed eating! 😂
@kev I haven't studied it, but my hypothesis is that steam gets built up somehow and disturbing it unleashes it's first-degree-burn fury.
