Climate change has turned usual weather patterns upside down. The average trends in weather reports are being shattered, with new highs and lows in temperatures being recorded every year. In Europe and Britain, for instance, heatwave-like conditions are being experienced like never before. The UK itself recorded the hottest day in its history on July 18 at a scorching temperature of 40 degrees Celsius. A man decided to document this historic day by cooking breakfast outdoors using the sun's heat! Yes, believe it or not, he actually managed to cook a meal without a gas stove amid the heatwave in the UK.
According to a report by the Mirror, Danny Shaw is the 30-year-old from West Yorkshire who attempted this bizarre experiment. The video of him cooking breakfast was widely shared on social media and left internet users stunned. In the clip, we could see him using his metal fridge as a flat base to cook breakfast. He layered some strips of bacon and cracked open an egg on the hot surface. "Cooking breakfast on a fridge in the English sun, it cooked today," he wrote in the caption.
