    So the other day I was hungry but the only bread we had was frozen. I throw the bag in the microwave and come back a minute later. It smelled bad for some reason. Apparently the twist-tie thing that hold the bag shut has a tiny little strip of metal. It burnt off all the paper on the twist-tie and was burning the plastic bag.

    :lol:

    I put an already boiled egg in a glass of water to get one of those plastic Easter decorations to shrink onto the egg.... 45 seconds into the cooking, I was given quite the surprise. I think the oven even came off of the counter.

    Wanna see something cool? Put a cd in one for about 2-3 seconds. (use sparingly it's bad for your waviator). Neato!

    Not responsible for damages. :popcorn:

    Yeah, keep going and it'll turn you lungs to jelly. The gas it gives off isn't very good for you. ;)

    Try putting a bag of potato chips in the microwave. I saw a video of someone doing it once; it's pretty cool. The bag sparks up and then shrinks down really small.

    Also bar soap is supposed to be quite interesting.

    I've done a cd, which was really cool, and I've also put a bar of soap in the microwave (bubbles like crazy). It was difficult to explain to mom when she came home why the microwave smelled like soap (I can't remember the excuse my brother and I used).
