TIL that in 1998 Australian Astronomers detected fast radio burst signals, and named them Perytons. It was soon discovered that it was escaping radiation from the microwave in the lunch room, which was being stopped by using the door release without pushing the stop button first. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Par…
TIFU by exploding a dead mouse in the microwave
Just to clarify, I did not kill the mouse. I own a couple of snakes and they eat frozen mice. About two years ago tho, I got a new hatchling for my collection. A really beautiful animal but I had problems getting her to eat.
I contacted the breeder that I got her from and asked what I could try. I was told that some snakes just don't accept dead food so I should try and get the mouse to body temperature.
Me being a real smart ass thought the best way to do this was to just put it in the microwave for a couple of seconds. I put the mouse in and selected the lowest setting.
As soon as I hit the start button the mouse exploded. I opened the microwave only to find that the mouse was gone. All I was left with was this slime that coated the whole thing from top to bottom. I have never smelled anything like this.
We now have a new microwave. I learned from my mistake and only heat mice under warm water.
Update: Yes, she ate. She's currently 2,5 years old and even layed a clutch of eggs l

Lunches with no fridge OR microwave—help!
So I’m being called back to work, but due to social distancing guidelines we won’t be allowed into our break rooms, which means we won’t have access to the fridge or the microwave! I’ve been wracking my brain trying to think what to bring, because unfortunately most recipes I’ve found still require a microwave. I do work outside on my feet in a very hot and humid climate, so hearty options would be much appreciated—thank you for any help you guys have!
Apparently my post isn't appropriate for r/DIY so I'll share with y'all. I installed my own microwave today and saved $150 in install fees!

The microwave one was good too
This happened a few years ago when I was still a FDA (I’m in reservations now). A guest called the desk with a complaint.
Guest: “The microwave in our room doesn’t work. My wife has been trying to heat up her pizza slice for over 10 minutes and it’s still not hot!”
Me: “Um.... microwave?” (We don’t have microwaves in our guest rooms)
Guest: “Yeah the one in the closet!”
Me: (after telling the AFOM his response) “Sir, a manager is on their way to your room now to assist you.”
The AFOM got there to find a big slice of pizza in the closet safe. The guests managed to get cheese and sauce all in the locking mechanism so that it had to be completely replaced.
Now every time my husband and I stay at a hotel, we check for a “microwave in the closet” and laugh.

The only downside to having an SO that cooks is that they don’t understand the specificity of pregnancy cravings 😂 I’ll still eat it tho bc his cooking is amazing
But sometimes I just want that after school mom doesn’t feel like cooking instant simple mac and cheese!!!

Fine, Let Her Blow Up the Microwave
I was just thinking about this the other day.
Backstory: My first 2 years of High School, I took Family and Consumer Sciences and was a member of FHA (which she was the sponsor of). The teacher straight up hated me. My first day in her class she informed me that there were too many people in school with my last name (there were 4 of us, one of whom had never taken a class with her) and that she wasn’t going to bother learning my first name. Apart from the time I won the FHA Outstanding Freshman award (much to her chagrin), I never once heard her use my first name. This is just to let you know how she treated me. Everything was always my fault, regardless of who was at fault.
On to the story. (This was the incident that led me to quit FHA and decide not to take any more FACS classes.).
It was my sophomore year. We were doing a cooking lab. I don’t remember what we were cooking but we had to put melted butter in the bottom of the baking dish. My lab partner decided to cut

Glass food container advertised as heat resistant gave up in the microwave. Bought it off Amazon UK from a Chinese seller called Crest, I have emailed them and well see what happens. A lesson has been learned today. I really wish Amazon would show country of origin.
TIL that microwaves heat things by flipping an electromagnetic field fast enough that polar molecules in the field never stop spinning to align to it. Because moving molecules are hot molecules, the food gets hot. Translation: we heat our food by turning it's molecules into electric motors. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Die…

Handling the startup power surge for refrigerators, microwaves, etc.
I'm guessing that most of you already know that the rated power requirement for many devices, such as a microwave, is less than the actual power used, and far less than the startup power required during the first few seconds of use. For example, my "1000w" microwave uses around 1400w in operation, and around 1900w on startup.
Main question: Is there something (X) I can buy or build to put between the device and inverter to supply the surge power for the first few seconds?
Inverter ---> X ---> microwave
I'm thinking something like a capacitor: it stores energy needed until the discharge and once the discharge occurs, the power just flows through it until the device has stopped. Then it builds its charge up again, waiting for the next surge.
If something like this existed that stored enough energy, let's say, 4 seconds worth of 1000w, it would enable a person to use a lower-rated (and less expensive) inverter on many devices. If it doesn't exist, how could one be built?
I give you...display microwave and frozen pizza in electronics (which is in the opposite corner of the building from those two depts).
TIL microwave ovens DON’T heat food using the “resonant frequency” of water. They work by causing polar molecules (water is one, and so are some fats) to rotate back and forth quickly in an oscillating electromagnetic field, producing molecular vibrations (heat). en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Die…
