"See, it's just on fire!"

Smarter Girl: Oh my God! You can't put metal in the microwave!
Dumb Girl: Don't be so stupid, [Heather] - It's tinfoil!

i did this in the nat sci microwave for a wendy's burger...the outside of the wrapper had a design in it so it didn't look like tinfoil. the inside, fire though.

foil in the microwave is a rite of passage in university. they should just make it an event at o-week.

You have to come to university to learn not to put foil in the microwave?

I put a little plate in the microwave once that had the tiniest silver lining. A few sparks started flying...but luckily I stopped the microwave immediately.

I had a roommate who used to put utensils in. I kept telling her not to, but she said that "as long as it's only one you don't close the circuit and it's ok." I'd usually be laughing too hard to tell her why she was wrong (and even when I did, she'd forget by the next meal).

The saddest part is that she's an engineer.

well, when i had my first apartment i decided that i wanted a "baked" potato, but didn't wanna wait an hour for the oven. So, i knew you could microwave them... and i knew you wrapped them in tin foil when putting them in the oven... so logically i figured wrapping a potato in tin foil and putting it on high in a microwave for 20 mins sounded like a good idea.

An even better idea was that bubble bath i decided to take while waiting... hoooboy was i surprised when the smoke detector is going off and i run out to my kitchen naked to see a flaming potato.

good times. its fun to be young and stupid :-p

The funny thing is, though, that some soup cans can go in the microwave. it's the weirdest thing. the lighter gray ones. it baffles the brain.

hey numbnutses: its ok to put aluminum foil in the microwave... those two guys from the mythbusters tv show put a whole big pee-wee herman sized ball in the microwave for a long time... nothing happened but a few sparks.

It's just that if the foil touches the lining of the microwave, then it will melt the shit out of it.

Regardless, mistakes happen. if you are dumb or put the foil in there by accident, don't freak out. just chill, and stop the microwave... or you could drop some acid and watch all the pretty lightning and have some fun...

Have fun,

any type of metal that is non-reflective is perfectly acceptable for use in a microwave. Yes even alluminum foil is possible provided that the shiny side and corners are turned in.
Have you never seen metal racks in microwaves? Honestly people, it's all about using useless knowledge efficiently.

so it true we can put foil in the microwave if its shiny side down??

10:13... that's so interesting... because the soup cans are dull looking
so that fits.

but what is it about it that makes the shininess flammable? that part i don't get

I can name him Bob if you think this would make you like my penis more.
My penis agrees that Bob would suit his character.
My penis used to be named Cindy.. but that was a really bad stage in my life.

hey dummies, why don't you try putting aluminum foil in your microwave and find out for yourself. Why ask dumb questions, when everybody has foil and should have a microwave by now. then you can tell us all about your scintilating experience on here. Go ahead and try it, don't be a baby... i put aluminum foil in the microwave everyday, just to live on the edge a little bit, and to also prove that it can be done, despite what folk-wisdom might say.

I also don't wash my hands after taking a piss. I just hook my thumb around the underwear strap and pull down, allowing my schlong to fall out. I then urinate. Then I pull the strap out away from my body, allowing my giant knob to fall back into the undies, as i quickly flip the front of the undies up again.

It takes no time with the Schiemann Method of Urinating and no, my hand never comes into contact with my penis at all.

This also saves the environment, since there is no harmful soap products or paper towels being wasted, and saves time, since the moron who designed the hot-air dispenser didn't realize that they a) spread germs when you touch the filthy button, and b) the take forever to work, and i don't like people thinking i am in the bathroom for too long of a time, since they will assume i was taking a massive dump, which i never, ever do in public. Also, that shitty pink soap they have in bathrooms dries the hell out of your hands, and also doesn't wash away. You can rinse and rinse, but that soap is still there.

Also, there are alot of retards who think that they are really sanitary, but only rinse their hands, so when they touch the taps, they are spreading their non-Schlieman Method germs all over the place.

Germs love water, and just wait on faucets to contaminate you. Therefore, washing your hands is A) disgusting, B) needless if you use the Schlieman Method, and C) conveys a false sense of security to those who think it works.

I also use my elbow to open the door on the way out. And if you think I am stupid, think of all the germs out there on people's genitalia that they don't wash everytime they use the bathroom. You might want to refrain from oral sex with people picked up in bars, because I am in there watching, and they don't wash their privates at all. So think about that the next time you try the shocker after a night of is YOU who are the fools!

The reason you're not supposed to put metals (ANY metals, shiny or otherwise) in the microwave is because the method of cooking, which uses microwaves to excite the electrons in molecules.

Metal atoms are good at sharing their electrons, so you get currents running through the metal object. The energy has nowhere to go, so it turns into heat, which in turn melts the bottom of your microwave. (Daily Planet had a demo of this, seeing LEDs under a shot glass light up in the microwave). you may get away with it (if as some suggest, you keep the foil away from the sides, or if the energy has somewhere to go) but it's not a wise thing to do - and do you really wanna risk ruining your microwave that way?

actually 11:50, though you may have accurately pointed out that a microwave does in fact excite electrons, it primarily acts to heat liquids from the inside out via excitation, thus why the LEDs responded in such a way. The microwave's reaction to the metal depends mostly on the degree of malleability and composition. Therefore, "ruining your microwave" is solely due to a lack of knowledge of the operator.
