Default General question about lapping

I understand that lapping a CPU is all about getting it as flat as possible, so it transfers heats better. Now, if I was to lap my kitchen pots, would
My KD cook faster?

Then you could put your pc on its side... put the pot on the CPU and cook while you play.

You'll get the water boiling slightly quicker, but the time to cook the actually KD is still the same.

With all honesty, and seriousness, would there litterally be change in the time it takes to boil the water?

Potentially, its really the fact of how hot you can get it, the hotter you can get the water the faster it will boil, mind you if you mix it while its attempting to boil that'll make your water boil faster as well. There is no way to speed up the 6ish mins that it takes the pasta to cook though

Thats kind of neat, but in the end, it's all the same. Pasta is Pasts.

I just realised I posted this in the wrong section...
