If you put metal in a microwave it'll spark and explode, everybody knows that. Even babies that don't know what microwaves are will cry and poo poo themselves of you leave your fork in your bowl of leftovers. And yet frozen pizza companies will sit here and give us weird not-metal sleeves to "cook" their frozen poo poo in an apparently this is fine??? We're all, as a society, just ok with this? They can't even figure out the right amount of tomato sauce to slop up their garbage with but apparently we can trust them to invent a new quasi-metal to put in our kitchens?

Remember when you'd go to pier 1 and buy like 6 plates that looked super cool with gold swirls on them for way too much money, then you'd try to microwave something on one and you'd hear the snapping and popping then you take it out of the microwave and see black spots all over the gold swirls.

I miss pier 1. :(

The real reason you shouldn’t microwave fish is because of all the mercury.

I am interested in most phases of data processing.

Spoons are fine because they are too smooth to get arcing. Forks are fine if they are submerged in stuff with enough water, because that is going to be conductive too.

Here's a better thing than metal: Get a few matchheads together and put them in the microwave. Then, very quickly, light the matchheads, close the door, and start it.

I am a metal monster and every day I put my metal food in my metal microwave. It sparks and makes a horrible noise and show, but I've no better way to prepare my meals. I am cursed, cursed to live the life of the metallic cast-away. One day I hope to surpass this torturous mineral shell, and become something lighter, like wood, or cotton, or even light.

Perhaps then I can enjoy a simple meal, potentially of simpler rocks or books, without creating a destructive show of force that intimidates the local kingdoms.

One day.

My parents had a microwave from the 80s that was about twice as big as a modern microwave and it had an actual “turkey” button, like you would just pop a whole Thanksgiving turkey in there at 11 and enjoy a turkey dinner at noon. Thankfully they never tried this.

Lightbulbs work in the microwave, which is useful if you don't have any lightbulb sockets.

What was that movie where someone puts cans of hairspray or something in the microwave then sets it to 30secs or whatever and then it explodes and completely blows up the building when the timer goes off?

One of my friends in high school claimed he had a microwave with a nuclear core and he had to register it with the NRC. Maybe it would have been beefy enough to cook metal.
