Uhm.. you are the second one claiming this. Could you please explain
what physics limits the temperature of vapor?

The ideal gas equation says that p*V/T = const, ie that the temperature
can rise at a constant pressure, as long as the gas is allowed to expand.

I pity people who can't find laughter or at least some bit of amusement in
the little doings of the day. I believe I could find something ridiculous
even in the saddest moment, if necessary. It has nothing to do with being
superficial. It's a matter of joy in life.
