I Love Doing Experiments In The Microwave!

November 22, 2010


Have I ever told you I used to rest my head against the microwave whenever I was cooking something in it growing up? I did? Oh. Well I have trouble forming new memories now. But I do remember the time I dragged an extension cord out to the middle of the backyard and hooked up a microwave. I put a whole 5lb bag of potatoes in. Now I have a swimming pool. This is a video of a guy putting a matrix of neon bulbs in a microwave to show you the patterns formed by the microwaves when on. It's pretty science-y. Granted not as science-y as rigging a microwave to work without the door closed and holding your hand in there for two minutes, but who really wants superpowers anyway? (hook me up with a Hot Pocket while you're at it).

Hit it for the 2:45 video.

Thanks to Jake, who experimented with his microwave to the point of having to marry it. Wow.
