    A little tidbit of info I'll pass along to you all.







    Don't run your microwave for 27 minutes with nothing in it:eek1: Instead of setting the timer for 27 minutes, my mother, this evening started the oven and let it run on accident. Their house smells so bad:doah: I guess the good thing is, it didnt' start a fire.:D

    In the bachelor years we used to have a microwave that would keep running when you opened the door, it made for an exciting meal...

    Also, a microwave will not quickly dry those underwear that the dryer didn't quite get dry all the way...

    :D That reminds me of when my coworker put his gloves in the microwave at work to heat them up. Gloves caught fire and started burning the microwave. :doah: :haha::haha::haha::haha:

    Put a CD in the microwave, turn the lights off and start it up, puts on a great show for a couple of seconds. I will not be held responsible for the odor that will linger in the microwave.

    Put a egg in the microvave and let it run. Don't get real close to it, but watch the egg move around, alot. It will do that for a while and then it will explode. Once it blew the door open on the microwave.
    Take the glass out of the bottom of the microwave and put a juicy grape in the middle. After a few minutes it will become acidic and eat through the bottom of the microwave.
    There is another mod you can do to a microwave and point it at your neighbors house and it will eventually make them go insane. The human brain does not like being close to radar.

    I have one of those marshmellow peeps that spent 60 minutes in the microwave mounted on my kitchen wall. Tried to microwave an orange for 60 minutes but had to stop when it caught on fire after about 45.

    A girl I know blew a hole through the top of a microwave cause she tried to nuke some coffee in a steel travel mug.

    I also managed to procure an commercial-grade microwave from my old job. It promptly got shot full of holes.
