Microwave Safety

When using a microwave oven, it is best to operate the microwave with the door to the microwave closed. Also, it is best not to put metal in the microwave. Food is a better option. On the other hand, if the goal is to have a fireworks show, possibly start a fire, or never use that microwave again, it is best to put metal in the microwave.

Contrary to popular belief, matchbooks have no relation to actual books. They are two separate items entirely. A “match book” is a collection of matches, used for starting fires. These should be kept in a safe place, like not next to a stick of dynamite or an arsonist. A “book book”, on the other hand, is a collection of words, which incidentally, can also be used to start fires if you are in an emergency or are a mother who is angry about the information presented in the book.
