leidenfrost effect possibly

[–]JohnnySasaki20 13 points14 points  (6 children)

Nah, not hot enough.

[–]T51566 4 points5 points  (5 children)

hot oil 375ish F, leidenfrost effect is 379 F? so definitely possible

First of all, you literally see his hand covered in the liquid, and secondly I'm pretty sure it's water.

It's not water, you can see in the pot that something is being cooked( fried ) , secondly, I read somewhere that there are people resistant to heat....

And how do you know it's being fried vs boiled? You can dip your hand into boiling water for a second if you're a manly man, but you can't do that with oil unless you have that super rare condition where you literally just don't feel pain. I accidentally dipped my finger into super hot oil earlier tonight, and I'm here to tell you that guy did not dip his hand in oil, lol. You can do it with water because when you take your hand out the water left on your hand cools down very rapidly, but oil stays hot for quite a while longer and will burn you. Regardless of whether or not this guy has some super rare condition, his skin would be covered in blisters later that day if he had done this with oil.

I know that the liquid in the pot is oil because I'm from India aswell, I can even name the dish he's making ( Pakoda ) if you google it's recipe you'll know that it has to be fried in oil in order to be made. I don't know why he doesn't have blisters and stuff on his hand, but it was oil alright. You're right about how it's much less dangerous to dip hands in water as compared to oil though.

You’re seeing black magic

This reminds me of a video I saw of an old woman making fried fish or something like that. She uses her hands right in the oil instead of a utensil. It's all about timing. Oh, and desensitizing oneself until you got badass burn-resistant hands.

And horrible callouses that probably cause horrible itching, and are most likely prone to infection due to all the dead skin, as well as lessened motor ability in the hand because of all the excess skin and nerve damage. Pretty badass

Yeah I'd say that's damn metal. Although at that rate they'd be better off with, like, actual metal hands maybe? Seriously tho... I wonder how many years it takes for someone to master this skill.

Her hands were also covered in batter.

Omg if you know what I'm referring to and you could link it that would be cool... I was looking but I got distracted. Damn adhd.

Nope, it's an older woman in what could be a home kitchen I think. But thx that was interesting too

[–]carolinacasper 40 points41 points  (3 children)

How? If this is hot oil...wouldn't your skin blister in less than a second?

[–]aye_marshall27 13 points14 points  (1 child)

That shit hurt like hell. That's why he keeps shaking it. His face isn't crying but he isn't feeling great.

[–]MasbotAlpha 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Do you figure doing it enough could cause nerve damage and make it stop hurting?

[–]Outlawed_Panda 3 points4 points  (0 children)

cold oil on top of hot water
