Turning Urn

Spin urn and pour water in it

Rather than having a big urn full of water that sits near boiling all day, create a heavy urn that spins up to very high RPM. Inside the urn are alternating layers of rotating and static plates (something turbiney). When water is poured in, it is centripugally sent outwards through the layers, heating it and sending it to a collection area for use.

       Watch out for any leaks. Ouch. Near boiling can cause near burns.

       Oh. I thought a Turing Urn could fool you into thinking it was human.   

       [bigsleep], why is that? How much DOES a grecian earn?

       //How much DOES a grecian earn//   

       I got sufficiently bored that I asked my Greek co-worker what the average kind of salary was back home, just so I could answer that very question. Pre Euro, it was about 250,000 drachma a month.

       Wikipedia says the Euro was introduced at about 350 Drachma, making it about 700 Euros (£560 or $US900). Sheesh!

       People, could we please get back to the thing about the worrying terns? It was just getting interesting.
