The problem with determining whether or not it's a troll is that we all know it's something that can
happen. The sticking point for me was the extreme temperature of the water. It sounds more like boiling water than water coming out of a faucet, but even that is a possibility. Once I caught Lion on the counter watching eggs boil. It scared the heck out of me thinking he might reach over and try to play with the eggs.
So, assuming this was real, I'd still like to get an update from the OP.
