    Alkali generally increases temperature when mixed into water. That might be it. Sulfite does not generally increase temperature unless it is totally anhydrous. Then it might increase temp as well.

    Thank you, PE; and Steven Jay Gould; and Carl Sagan, who were saying the same fifteen years or so ago.

    My post above was intended purely for some slight possible chance of humor. It is not scientifically accurate and should not be misconstrued as being on topic.

    By the way, for those not in the know, here's the complete reference -

    Jerry: No, I'm not gonna tell her about your shrinkage. Besides, I think
    women know about shrinkage.

    George: How do women know about shrinkage? (They see Elaine walking down the hall) Elaine! (She enters) Do women know about shrinkage?

    Elaine: What do you mean, like laundry?

    George: No.

    Jerry: Like when a man goes swimming... afterwards...

    Elaine: It shrinks?

    Jerry: Like a frightened turtle!

    Elaine: Why does it shrink?

    George: It just does.

    Elaine: I don't know how you guys walk around with those things.

    Not that I understand my chemistry education but I do about van der waals and London dispersion forces and dipole dipole interactions and whatnot. Or at least I can take numbers and plug them into equations to get other numbers... yay for AP Chem.
