reveilles and I saw Batman Begins on Sunday. We had an interesting ride to the movie theater since a thunderstorm (with hail) earlier in the day had knocked down some tree branches causing some roads to be closed. I enjoyed the movie and thought it was very well done. The pacing was good (the opening was slow, though I think that was necessary) and the movie didn't make the characters into caricatures.

One thing did bother me, though: The bad guys had a machine that would turn water in the vicinity of the machine into vapor. When they turned it on and stood next to it, why didn't it turn the water in their bodies to vapor?

without knowing the mechanism by which the machine forces the state change, i'd say it's cuz the body and particularly the skin in this case is highly adept at maintaining the proper physiological conditions for survival. and that means making sure the right stuff stays out, the right stuff stays in, the right amounts of stuff move in and out.

i'm guessing the skin is a sufficient barrier to the effects of the vaporizerTM and even if one did start experiencing its effects, i bet the body would be able to respond to some extent to maintain the correct water-vapor balance.

Thanks for the information. I had never heard of the World Sauna Competition before. It makes your post make a lot more sense.
