Think – Today: Why Don’t Plastic Oven Bags (For Roasting Turkeys) Melt In The Oven?

by Anura Guruge

turkeybagsI just bought some today and used a bag, very successfully, to roast a 14lb turkey. Yes, it sure does help keep it real moist. But, I couldn’t help wonder why the bag wouldn’t melt (despite the 2 tablespoons of flour you have to put in to prevent such melting?

Think first, then research, then THINK again. Think for the pleasure of thinking.

Yesterday’s ‘Think’‘538’ is the number of ‘electors’ in the U.S. Electoral College — which, in the end, is the body that formally elects the U.S. President. The ‘538’ corresponds to the 435 Representatives and 100 Senators, plus the three additional electors from the District of Columbia. The candidate that gets a majority of the 538 Electoral College votes is automatically the President. 1/2 of 538 = 269. Hence, the magical ‘270’ number. The absolute majority when there are 538 votes.
