Running a soldered BGA through a wave solder pot is very risky: * 230-240*C temperature of the pot could damage the device. * Solder in the pot will certainly cause bridging between BGA solder balls. * Solder in the pot could melt BGA solder balls.

A potato is: * 80 percent water * 20 percent solids Temperature: * Water boils at ~100*C * Your solder pot ~240*C If you want to try this experiment, talk someone else into doing it while you're on break.
