You can also make light out of light by powering a lightbulb with solar energy, or create wind out of wind by powering a fan with electricity generated by wind turbines.

Just don’t try to recreate nuclear energy at home, kids.

EmoDuck,

If you have nuclear or coal powerd electricity you’d be using boiling water to boil your water

jasondj,

I mean, the vast majority of our electricity (or at least fossil-fuel powered) is essentially “burn stuff to boil water, use steam to power turbine”.

TheRedSpade,

No, I can’t. I don’t have a kettle, and my stove operates on gas.

rbesfe,

I don’t have a kettle

What sad, depraved lives Americans live

TheRedSpade,

It’s not like we can’t buy kettles if we want. I just have no use for one.

Globulart,

I just have no use for one.

What sad, depraved lives Americans live

nexussapphire,

I own an electric kettle and I boil my water in the microwave!

(Watch this brit go insane over microwaved water.)

Globulart,

Sorry, I’m having trouble formulating a response with my entirely blown mind.

Scum, sub-human scum.

nexussapphire,

Besides the kettle is only for hot chocolate! You fill it up, put swissmiss in it and turn it on!

257m,

wtf? You bought a kettle for swiss miss. Heresy! Only tea should go in kettles, everybody knows that.

nexussapphire,

Got it, I’ll try putting Arnold Palmer half & half in it next time.

CrayonRosary,

Could that be any wordier?

Try this:

You can boil water with water by using hydroelectricity to power your kettle.

Globulart,

You can excite water to the extent that it starts changing it’s state of matter by employing a method of electricity generation which makes use of the subject we are trying to excite and subsequently powering a device which does the aforementioned excitement of water!

Aarrodri,

Hydroelectric primer is actually solar energy. Sun evaporated water… Which then rains too full the damn, then gravity does is job… But it all starts with solar… Freaking epic. And they called the Aztecs crazy for venerating the sun. Better than am imaginary friend I’ll tell you what.

threelonmusketeers,

All energy except nuclear is technically solar energy…

All the heavy metals (including uranium) came from stars exploding in some form. So it’s all from a sun (even if it’s not ours)

Alternatively, the sun is a huge fusion furnace, so all energy is nuclear

Agent641,

We did it, lemmy, we discovered net positive fusion!

jasondj,

Solar in the definition of “of our star, Sol”…sure. But all energy is celestial in origin.

Some of my electricity comes from magic rocks. Hold them close together and they get hot enough to make steam. Take them apart and they cool off. Just don’t hold them too close together or bad things happen.

Where were you comrade Dyatlov ?

lntl,

could burn hydrogen into water to boil and create water at the same time

roofuskit,

Isn’t that really gravity though? Or is it the mass?

kersploosh,
@kersploosh@sh.itjust.works avatar

Gravitational force is proportional to mass, so yes.

myster0n,

And in the same way you can freeze water with steam.

VegaLyrae,

I never have been able to.

I used to be able to boil my water with electrons from a nuclear reactor.

Now that I moved, all my electrons get excited by high tech coal..... Oh...

Chruesimuesi,

And for the creation of this thought water was also involved; assuming this was indeed a showerthougt

On top of the fact that OP himself is mostly just water.

WhyAUsername_1,

I just peed myself laughing. Does that count ?

257m,

Sadly I wasn’t actually in the shower when I thought of this :(. Would be cool though if I was.

MetricIsRight,

Considering where I live like 80% of our power generation is from hydro-electric dams, yep. I do this every day.

Canada?

Edit: Nvmd. Can’t read instance domain lol.

MetricIsRight,

Yeah, Western Canada.

danielbln,

You’re also boiling water with gravity.

mrbaby,

And the gravity tank is filled using solar radiation.
