I just witnessed a strange effect, perhaps explainable by physics. It is time for my after-lunch tea, so I boiled up some water and put a tea bag in my thermos cup. As I poured the boiling water over the tea bag, I heard a sound that reminded me of the whine the Bad Witch made as she cried, “I’m melllllllting…”
Perhaps this has to do with air trapped in the bag being forced out at high heat. Or perhaps it is purely symbolic. Draw your own conclusions.
