The circuits were designed to detect pulses at a maximum rate of 106 per second, but were unreliable at this frequency. By reducing the operating frequency to 8×105 per second, reliable performance could be achieved. This simply meant that measurements took a longer time to gain the required accuracy, and since there was a large element of automation in the experiment it merely increased the length of coffee breaks— sorry I mean time in the library! This was considered to be a better use of the equipment than going into great detail trying to find the cause of the problem.

Initially, knowledge of the subject was limited to an observation best described in Mpemba’s own words: In 1963, when I was in form 3 in Magamba Secondary School, Tanzania, I used to make ice-cream. The boys at the school do this by boiling milk, mixing it with sugar and putting it into the freezing chamber in the refrigerator, after it has first cooled nearly to room temperature. A lot of boys make it and there is a rush to get space in the refrigerator. One day after buying milk from the local women, I started boiling it.
