Jeez, you must have a HUGE microwave oven!

Is there are space/time-continuum involved that dictates we be moving around the kitchen at exactly the same rate as you did for the result to be the same? Or is that just what the whole thing looks like from here?

I tried this at home but the gravitational mass of my Epicness bent the light and distorted the results.

Sorry for that, we decreed today "Talk like Barney Day" here at work.

Catching up on Maddox writings online after reading his new book. I missed some good ones. Mark, I thought you might like his April Fool's photoblog.

I like it.

A similarly good practical joke is to put parmesan cheese in a microwave, hit high power for five minutes, and walk away. Far away.

More bad lip-reading, Herman Cain edition.

I have an urge to try this but am afraid. What happens? eek

Also you can light a standard incandescent light bulb using your microwave. Put the bulb in a glass of water so that the metal base is just covered by the water. Turn your nukemowave on high and watch the show. That's power savings - using 1000W to light a 60W bulb! I have done this but only for 2 or 3 seconds. I've been scared to go longer.

Horrible smell. Best done in campus dining halls.
