Re: Temperature and lithostatic pressure

Me too. My copy-and-paste buffer contains this, "rock that reaches temperatures of 46˚C without ventilation due to a high lithostatic pressure from rock above it "

i.e. In my basement I've squeezed a big rock in a big vice. It's been heating my house for the past 26 years. It just stays at 46°C, like, forever. Amazing...
