No, it's not that hot.

Apparently, it's not hot enough to fry an egg on the pavement. Or even in a cast-iron skillet on the pavement. We greased up a pan (left out a few hours to heat it up) & some asphalt with margarine, which melted right away. But neither apparently was hot enough to cook our incredible, edible eggs. The Web site of Food Services of America tells us that we needed to get to at least 144 degrees Fahrenheit to get the whites to coagulate.

Below are the results of our attempts. As you can see, no coagulation. And no tasty afternoon snack, either. (Photos by Andy Johns)
