Today, I learned that just because the actual part of the pan that does touch the stove isn't hot doesn't mean that the handle won't give you third degree burns, a broken nose from passing out from the pain, and an expensive trip to the emergency room. FML

I thought it depends.. because my mom has some pans were the handle is just metal and it gets hot and she has other ones with like rubber handles that dont.

In physics, thermal conductivity, k (also denoted as λ or κ), is the property of a material's ability to conduct heat. It appears primarily in Fourier's Law for heat conduction.

29-if you have all metal pots and pans or cast iron pans no matter what the handle will heat up. Stick a metal spoon in a pot, leave it and grab it. Hot. Very hot.

Hahahahaha when reading this FML I thought of Harry from Dumb and Dumber(er?) (don't remember which one) where he breaks the girls side mirror and sets himself on fire.

*have have fucking HAVE not OF! *rageragerage*

Sorry guys, just had to let that one out. Even intelligent people do this, and I've read books with this mistake repeatedly made. Makes me rage.

Anyone else confused by this post ? Sounds to me that the handle was hot but not the rest of the pan. How that's possible escapes me. Anyway, can't believe you passed out from it. Pussy.

Ok so they grabbed the handle which was hot since the handle is attached to the pot it heats up too. Third degree burns means that I burner all of the skin off all the way to the bone so it's one of the most painful things ever.

Also, OP claims that the part of the pan touching the stove wasn't hot, which is the mind bending part. That also begs the question; why the fuck did OP touch the part of the pan touching the stove?!


Supportcommand: With an ignorant statement like that, you've very obviously never had third-degree burns. Actually, scratch that; you're just ignorant.

I've never had more than a first-degree burn, and even I understand that they can be as instantaneous as being struck by lightning. Passing out doesn't make him a pussy. People have different ways with coping with pain. Not everyone is a 'Macho dude' with muscles as thick as your skull.

With your logic, you must still believe in the 5 second rule with food.


To answer the question of how only the handle was hot could have been using a gas stove and the handle was near the burner he was using and speaking from experience he is a puss for blacking out I've dropped molten slag through my foot and not bitched as much as this guy

Thank you 71. It seems as though maninthemachine might be as much of a puss as op. and I'd like to thank machine for complimenting the structural integrity of my skull. It is very strong. And finally, I operate more on the 2 to 3 second rule, with several conditions I won't get into here.


TittySprinkles: You say it like he had control over whether or not he passed out.


*touches handle*

Oh shi--

*almost blacks out*

Nah, I got this.

Yeah, doesn't work that way dumbass. Again, people handle pain differently. You didn't pass out? Great, here's a gold fucking star, but that's worth about as much as what came out of my ass this morning.


Supportcommand: If in your ignorant mind, reacting involuntarily and passing out is 'being a pussy', then you're right.

You even admit you've never had a third degree burn. Imagine the putrid stench of your own skin burning, watching the palm of your hand bubbling from the heat and the searing pain associated with the two. If that doesn't, at the very least, make you light-headed, then you're fucking brain-dead.

But please, go on with this façade of being a tough guy. You seem to have convinced yourself it's true.

You can pass out from many things. I used to babysit, and I had some fucked up kids. One of them Hit me in the head with an aluminum baseball bat. Yea, I passed out. But that doesn't mean I'm a pussy. Some people pass out easier than others. I'd rather be puched in the face By Mike Tyson than have a third degree burn. And to whoever said molten slag was poured on your foot, you're full of shit.
