Yesterday, I finally saw the ultimate movie for all us choc freaks... althought Willy Wonka probably doesn't make single estate choc (when comes Lumpaland Grand Cru?), I really enjoyed it, but I would have wished that the movie was slightly more "dark" and weird in the Tim Burton way...[;)]

I have a bar of Willy Wonka "55% au Lait aux Croquants de Noix de Pecan" here. I heard rumors that squirrels processed the pecans for this one.

Depends on your definition of "hot". But generally no, most people wouldn't find chocolate that was just melted to be hot.

Your body temperature is 98.6 F, so anything above that would feel considerably warmer, or even hot. Melted chocolate won't solidify if its suspended in a sea of water, so it could be much cooler than body temp and not feel warm.

Have you ever noticed how metal objects sometimes feel cold? The truth is, they're not "cold," per se, but rather, they're at room temp and your body temp is higher than that. If the temp in the room is 70 F, *everything* will feel cold because it's 28.6 degress cooler than your body!

1)Subtract 32
2) Add 1/9 th
3) Divide by 2

Do this to convert:

F to C: subtract by 32; divide by 9; multiply by 5
C to F: multiply by 9; divide by 5; add 32

There are several sites that offer quick and simple temperature conversion.

Ariel - I'm getting used to young girls playing dumb, but please don't blame the fact that you "don't get" Fahrenheit on being Australian.

For starters, if you learn to spell Fahrenheit correctly, it might help you do a search for a conversion calculator on Google. (Quite apart from the fact that you don't actually need a conversion, given that Montegrano began his explanation by TELLING you what body temperature is in F).

Ariel, I find your posts as charming and amusing as anybody - I simply ask that you don't blame your ignorance on being Australian.

Oh, and here's another calculator you might find useful: http://www.iqtest.com
