    So much wrong with your comment, but most annoyingly, water vapor does not drip. How can something happen both eventually and rapidly? Also what the hell is speced? Do you mean spec'd? No components are spec'd to be submerged, thats why we have things like Humiseal, which most thermostats are coated with due to humidity conditions.Although I don't disagree that putting a popsicle on your thermostat is a bad idea, its not a bad idea for any of the reasons you stated. The real danger is shorting the board connected to AC mains power, and potentially starting a fire.

    Yes and it won't happen rapildy, it will take months even if you constantly swap new popsicles to keep a constant rate of condensation. Also condensate is the noun, (the actual liquid result of the condensation process) not the verb. I am aware of the slang but even the slang is spelled with 2 c's, not one. Just saying that it destroys sentence clarity if speced (which is actually pronounced completely differently than specced) is read without being recognized as a spelling mistake, which is entirely possible. Either way, almost no components are spec'd for submersion anyway. All circuits that undergo submersion are put in some kind of waterproofing so the actual circuit does not come into contact with the water (or they are completely coated in a layer of protectant like the humiseal I...see more »Yes and it won't happen rapildy, it will take months even if you constantly swap new popsicles to keep a constant rate of condensation.

    "will drip (in liquid form or as water vapor)"I put plenty of thought into it. You may very well be right at what he meant, but what he said is that it will drip as liquid or as water vapor, and water vapor doesn't drip. Once it condenses its liquid, so its no longer water vapor.
