This was more or less in my old ideas file for many years, suggested by a reader a long time ago. The temperature of 457 K was in the ideas file with that exact number. When I went to the bother of converting it... I discovered it corresponds to 184°C (363°F).

I considered changing the number to something more realistic... but then I figured: Why bother? It may be funnier this way.
