…because I forget

I often forget that I’ve boiled some water for my tea or whatever (e.g. my hot water-powered strawberry pip stripper) as I go about my chores at work or at home.

Now, if it whistled when it boiled, I wouldn’t forget, I wouldn’t get de-hydrated and I wouldn’t waste precious energy.

[bigsleep], I found your tease maid
Actually, I found several, but this is the one least likely to upset [po] [normzone, Jul 16 2007]

this one plays a song
[xandram, Jul 16 2007]

ah but I imagine it stops when its turned off. I'd like one that continues to whistle after its boiled and perhaps gets even louder the longer I leave it.

If you leave it on long enough, the electricity company will post you a handy reminder every quarter.

they already do.

I thought it was improper English to 'boil' water for tea.

But I think this is what the micro is good for. Continues to beep until opened.

tea must be boiling hot, dent.

What [po] said, and don't forget to warm the pot first.

Love how you anno your own idea.

Why not just get a stovetop kettle and put it on a hot plate?

--cool idea

Can't you make tea just by running hot tap water into a cup with one of those Lipton bags in it?
-- Galbinus_Caeli, Jul 16 2007

its a hot idea, evil birdy.

anno my own idea? its a discussion and I am allowed to join in!

grumble. Nothing more frustrating than bringing a troll to a party and not getting a rise out of anyone.

Do I have to put a Hitler mustache on him, dress him up in union jack/old glory boxer shorts and have him sing a pastiche of "God Save The Queen" and "My Country, Tis of Thee" in Farsi?
-- Galbinus_Caeli, Jul 16 2007

[G.Caeli] : yes... and yes. Do it.

What tune would it whistle?
-- Dub, Jul 17 2007

"I'm a little teapot" ?

I was talking about the fact that your the first anno. I like the idea, and really, I meant no offense to you. I just smiled at the fact that you were first.
-- evilpenguin, Jul 17 2007

no probs! I was fully aware that you didn't comprehend that I was replying to [xandram]'s helpful link!
-- po, Jul 17 2007

[gc] We saw your warm-water-and-teabag troll coming a mile off, and decided the best way to frustrate him/her was to ignore.
Worked a treat.
-- AbsintheWithoutLeave, Jul 17 2007

I was thinking "Polly put the kettle on / Sukey take it off again" or "Po turn the kettle off"
