Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

I just got back from four months in China. I don't know if you know this, but Asians love drinking boiling hot water. While I was there, I got so used to having hot water that I bought a tea kettle when I got back.

Here's my problem: I was so used to there being water boilers across the campus in China. First: is there any place on campus where I can get boiling (or near-boiling) hot water for my water bottle? Second: if not, how would I suggest that to campus?

Dear Wannabe,

I don't know of any stoves on campus (that's not to say there aren't any, just that I don't know about them), but there are a lot of microwaves. If I were you, I'd just use one of those to heat the water to boiling. Many buildings have them, and it seems like a fairly efficient way to achieve your aims. I don't know so much about other buildings, but I spend a fair amount of my time in the Talmage, and I know it has a microwave on the ground floor.

Your best bet is to bring your own water boiler. That way you aren't creating a line of angry students who need to heat up their pop tart for 30 seconds.
