Okay Caine.. I'm calling you on this one. I have a nice hottub in the sun room, and thought 140 sounded a little hot. Here's the URL and a part of the text... I think I keep my hottub around 106F so I can enjoy it for around 20 ~ 30 minutes.

Tepid Water - 85 to 105°F. The water is comparable to the temperature of the human body.
Warm Water - 115 to 120°F. The water is touchable but not hot.
Hot Water - 130 to 135°F. The water is too hot to touch without injury.
Poach - 160 to 180°F. The water is beginning to move, to shiver.
Simmer - 185 to 200°F. There is movement, and little bubbles appear in the water.
Slow boil - 205°F. There is more movement and noticeably larger bubbles.
Real boil - 212°F. The water is rolling, vigorously bubbling, and steaming.
So unless a typo is involved, you have yours set to between being injured, and being poached
I assume you *are* human, right?
BTW, you might find the website name amusing.
