@publius "boiling mercury" is a bad answer. Aha. Ask a better question. Mmhmm?

What planet, other than Mercury, would you boil?

@JohanEmpa

I once calculated that the energy the Sun emits in 24 hours is, to a closer approximation than you would think, equal to that needed to take a quantity of ice the mass of the Earth at the freezing point of water, melt it, raise it to the boiling point (at standard atmospheric pressure), & evaporate it. So apparently this one!

@publius wow, it's so much energy in the sun.

I would probably boil Pluto, because that's the only planet made out of meat, as far as I know. But I'm hesitant, because I've never eaten dog.
