Righteousness through rightism ... or the death of common sense.
Daily life requires a modicum of forethought to perform the most basic of tasks. If I were told by ____________ (insert your favorite master beekeeper here) that if I were to choose to mix a 2:1 sugar/water syrup for feeding, I would need to heat the mixture to get it to dissolve quickly and properly.
I believe that I would choose to some vessel to heat the mixture. A plastic bowl would not be an appropriate choice, because it would likely melt and cause a mess or fire. Finding a suitable metal pot, I would then have to decide on a proper heat source. I could use my acetylene torch, but that would likely melt my metal pot and defeat its purpose. Observing that spilled sugar grains quickly turn into bubbly, black masses, I would regulate my heat source to slowly heat the mixture to prevent burning the sugar. Perhaps, even using a thermometer. Also note, this would not be the proper time to walk the dog.
Once the mixture was dissolved, I would need to realize that this hot mixture would not be physiologically compatible for bee consumption. It should be cooled to ambient temperature. However, leaving it on the heat source would slow this process. Remembering my Mother had admonished me when I was three for touching hot things from the stove, I would select a pair of potholders before moving the pot to a cooling location. This should be an insulated location, and NOT my wife's Formica countertop!
To monitor cooling, it would not be advisable to place my hand in the mixture. Again, the thermometer would be a very useful tool.
If things did not work out, I would not curse the advise, but give a little more thought to the possibilities I might have ignored. Failing that, I might consider enrolling at MIT, Purdue, or CalTech to improve my critical life skills.
