LOOK: This guy proved how hot it was in the Philippines by cooking an egg on the sidewalk

“It’s so hot you could fry an egg on the sidewalk!” you’ve probably heard once, twice, or more than enough in your lifetime in the Philippines.

It’s pretty damn hot in Manila during summertime and sometimes, electric fans aren’t enough anymore because each and every waking moment is a struggle to find a decent spot for you to cool down in.

Joshua Cruz had one experiment to prove how hot it was in the Philippines: cooking an egg on the sidewalk.

According to Robert Wolke’s book, Einstein Told His Cook: Kitchen Science Explained, “sidewalk temperatures can vary depending on the composition of the sidewalk, whether it is in direct sunlight, and of course, the air temperature. Dark objects absorb more light, so blacktop paving would be hotter than concrete.”

“More often than not, sidewalks are concrete. A hot sidewalk might only get up to 145°F. Once you crack the egg onto the sidewalk, the egg cools the sidewalk slightly. Pavement of any kind is a poor conductor of heat, so lacking an additional heat source from below or from the side, the egg will not cook evenly.”

Well, we guess with the help of a frying pan, the egg did cook up nicely.

And here’s the whole sitch:
