Is there supposed to be thermal gain that is enough to cook a steak at terminal velocity?

Also I'd imagine that any steak released at 100KM would see a significant amount of its liquid content boil off before it made it into the atmosphere.

At best, you might end up with a lukewarm piece of jerky when it augers in.

How long before Biden bans lava-powered stoves?

This is farking stupid. That's cooked in the same way a can of ravioli that survived a house fire is cooked.

Wow. I'm shocked just dumping molten rock on a piece of meat lying on the sidewalk didn't work.

Why would you not just put the steak on a stick and roast it above the lava?

My kid asked me once why different recipes for bread call for different oven temperatures.  I explained that faster times were at higher temperatures.  And you could probably cook a turkey in 30 seconds at 1000 degrees. She didn't really believe me but now I feel vindicated.

Stop wasting food for fake internet points, assholes.

Wait until the lava hardens  and cools to ~500 F.  That seems to work OK.

Alternatively, heat a nice smooth piece of basalt for an hour in a 500-degree oven....

Well, that's something.

Pass the ketchup.

That person needs to find that cows family and apologize.

Maybe if the steak was more than 1/4 inch thick that might have worked better. I'd still eat it though.

I'll stick to slapping the steak until cooked, thank you very much.
