Bzzzt! Zap! Pow!

It's a common tradition to send cards during the holiday season.
Some of you may have gotten a ton of holiday greeting cards these past few weeks.
Some cards even say pre-recorded stuff when you open them up.

Now, I know what you're thinking, so I'll just come right out and say it.

You're wondering, "Janna, what would happen if I put my talking greeting cards in the microwave?"
And, because I am so helpful, I feel the need to direct you to THIS video, where some guys actually put a talking card into a microwave.
For three minutes.
On high.

Once you've watched that, feel free to watch this one too, where they put an etch-a-sketch in a microwave for seven minutes.
And perhaps this one, where they microwave an iPod.
The iPod explodes.

It's the perfect way to spread cheer and joy this time of year.

After all, no matter what denomination you happen to be, it's always fun to see sparks and molten metal.

But the most important question about all those devices is...

Will it blend?

It's amazing what you can do with microwaves nowadays.

My gawd, the carnage. One can only hope and pray a new microwave will be found under the tree

It's nice to have our curiosities satisfied without killing ourselves with the fumes! LOL

Somebody has a little too much time on his hands...then again I'm the one who was watching it. Must be another slow day at work.

Whall: What genius! I'd say "it must be a guy thing," but I love it too. :)

Anthony: Isn't it?

XUP: Maybe if they leave the broken one under their pillow, the micro-fairy will bring them a new one! :o

Polly: Exactly!

JustABlogger: I LOVE people who have too much time on their hands. They're so interesting!

I like what happen when you put one of those evil gremlins in there.

Janna said...

Marilyn: I've never seen that movie, but have always wanted to. :) I think it's from way back when I was in high school! (!!!)

It's not so much that someone thought about it and asked the questions, but then they actually carried out the experiment.

Although I shouldn't really be surprised because I knew guys like that in high school.

Travis: I love that they actually keep on microwaving different stuff. If the microwave breaks, they just keep buying others. It's a sweet mix of stubbornness, ingenuity, foolishness, curiosity, and that taste for the bizarre which I value so highly. :)
