It’s so hot in India, you could fry an egg on the sidewalk!

So hot that you could fry an egg on a sidewalk

We have all probably heard the saying “It’s so hot you could fry an egg on the sidewalk!” Turns out you could do just that if you happen to be in Titlagarh, Odihsa in India  where tempratures have touched a scorching 45.5 degree Celsius, second only to 45.7.

 

The video has been retweeted over 500 times with many expressing disbelief.

Q&A from Library of Congress:

Is it possible to fry an egg on the sidewalk if it’s hot enough?

Answer:  Yes, theoretically. But it doesn’t actually get hot enough.  “This question comes from the saying “It’s so hot you could fry an egg on the sidewalk!” How many kids, hearing it, actually try? Most likely they end up with a mess resembling scrambled eggs more than one sunny-side up. So what’s the problem?”
