comment Is it safe to drink hot water? How hot can it be?
I find this a strange question. Pragmatically speaking don't you already have experience with this? People regularly drink hot tea, coffee, chocolate, etc. that is as hot as comfortable without ill effect. When you say "burn" do you mean more than uncomfortably hot?

comment How tight should the line be kept for toproping?
Everything here is familiar to me except for: "An inexperienced climber might want to be kept tight just having cleared a roof with a lot of rope out, which would result in face and roof meeting with great force." Would you elaborate?
