"OK you dratin retards; THE VOICE IS NOT A REAL PERSON, BUT A COMPUTER, ALSO, HOW THE drat MANY GOD DAMN VIDEOS DO WE NEED IN THE WORLD INVOLVING STUPID MORONS PUTTING $H1T IN THE MICROWAVE?!?! I MEAN, COME ON!!!!! I CAN`T EVEN BEGIN TO COUNT HOW MANY VIDEOS THERE ARE ON YOUTUBE WITH STUPID MORONS PUTTING LIGHTBULBS IN THE MICROWAVE!! YOU KNOW WHAT? WHEN YOU PUT A LIGHTBULB IN THE MICROWAVE, IT EXPLODES IN A BALL OF FIRE, RUINING YOUR MICROWAVE, BUT I GUESS ANYONE WHO`S RETARDED ENOUGH TO PUT ANYTHING IN THE MICROWAVE THAT ISN`T FOOD DESERVES WHAT THEY GET. NEXT TIME ANYONE DECIDES TO PUT A FOREGN OBJECT IN THE MICROWAVE TO POST ON YOUTUBE, TRY MICROWAVING A CAN OF LYSOL, THEN MAYBE WE`LL HAVE ONE LESS MORON IN THE WORLD."

There`s a key right next to the A on your keyboard press it, you stupid spazz.

Video was boring. Grapes in the microwave are mildly amusing though.

Ok first of all- It does not harm the microwave! =)

I did a little testing and I found that grapes, hotdogs, carrots, and small tomatoes work as well! Breads are not good, but they do fry in the center at the break.

Brainiac did this better...much more to the point and it had "hamster" Hammond instead of a retarded computer voice

dear y_wilkes85, i believe that you have anger issues, and you might want to get that checked out.

as for the video, i thought it was boring, and i stopped it before it was even halfway through.

That was interesting. A bit too on the educational side for my taste... but it`s something to keep in mind the next time I have a bunch of grapes and some free time.

I am not a scientist, but I do know the reason this happens, energy is stored under the skin of the grape, now the small skin in between the grape acts like a wire connecting both sides of the split grape. When activated by the microwave, both sides become charged, seeking to transfer energy the charge goes to the wire.....(the thin skin in between the split grape) when the charge from one side of the grape meets the charge from the other a collision happens with displacement of energy, aka sparking. Now to explain the molecular breakdown of this is going to require a physics major. What this experiment is trying to prove is that there is energy in everything, rocks, space plants, grapes.

I started picking my nose when it started, but I finished before it did so I fast forwarded it...and then I got bored and started picking my nose again. Woulda been nice if it was straight to the point, Cut a grape pop it in the microwave--poof. I think it was too-cluttered with information.
