    Being a college student I'm in love with my microwave, but it's hard to trust anything that can heat up easy mac that fucking hot without the use of fire whatsoever. Plus they were first made by the Nazi's for their mobile support operations to invade Russia...
    And what is weird is that they actually work by generating the electrons affected by magnetic and electric fields in the magnetron tube inside in such a way as to produce micro wavelength radiation that interacts with the molecules in food causing the polar molecules to rotate at the same frequency millions of times per second. The agitation creates molecular friction, which heats up food.
    Basically that means that the micro-waves are absorbed by water, fats, and sugars producing heat. Microwaves are argued to be harmless but even the people who argue that suggest not to stand in front of it. Sure they use radiation but in the same way your cell phone does so no cancer risk but still, fuck standing in front of one.
