    Pretty much what I expected. EM waves making the thing light up, then ultimately explode.

    I`d hate to be the next person to reheat a pizza slice in that microwave. Ouch......glass splinters !!
    And what do you mean "surely they`ll clean up after themselves" ? These guys are obviously students with nothing better to do......I bet that microwave has never seen a wet rag! :-)

    YAY! that made me happy. i saw this once on that discovery show with the scientists who explain what happens when you put certain items in microwaves and closely related stuff like that. (why grapes sparkle and forks get zapped).

    There`s a Brit TV show called "Brainiac" where they do this kind of stuff. Did you know you can walk on top of a swimming pool full of custard without sinking in ?? Who would have thought the 2nd Coming would be dessert-based !

    Heheh, yes, reminds me of Braniac - very funny (and educational, in a weird way) show, it is!

    This wasn`t -quite- as good as the Furby in the microwave though...

    They should record themselves putting a CD in a microwave. They did that on Braniac once (the programme yorkiemartin was on about).

    I would do it but I don`t wanna mess up my microwave... just like I`ve always wanted to put tin foil in.

    And yeah, the Furby thing was pretty funny. When there was a huge flood here (Hurricane Floyd, `99) my sister`s Furbys washed away because they were in the garage (garage is under first floor) We found one in the front yard. It was just a black mass of wet fur-but it still talked. I hit it with a hammer and it shut up, though

    Also, I had a Giga-Pet (tamagotchi ripoff) that wouldn`t shut up, so I dunked it i water, unscrewed it, hit the little microchips with a hammer, and it still beeped. Finally I put it under my moms bed. She almost went nuts trying to find it =D

    Everything that you could put in a microwave, that you shouldnt, WILL ALWAYS make a mess... Like that egg thing, it always will explode, but I dont think its got enough force to blow the door open, its locked, u gotta press the button to open it right?

    My little brther accidentally put tin foil in there. It was fine for a few seconds, then sparks flew everywhere, and lit the foil and his burger on fire.

    Its really neat to see foil balls or better yet used CDs, they light up in different colored sparks.
