Boiling water sterilization

Is it better to have the water an inch up from the bottom of the jar, or an inch under the top of the jar?

Many nice things suck.

Don't get it too high up, your substrate will get wet. I'd keep it at about half way up the jars and monitor it so that the boiling doesn't get too violent. The temperature of the water will not get any hotter after boiling, it will just disapppear faster if the heat is real high.

To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.
