I hit a car on the way to my road test. Ooops. We didn't have a DMV in our town so with my mom I drove our old Volvo to the next town for my test. We had about an hour to kill so we went to the mall to get some lunch. When I backed out of the parking stall (to go take my road test) I turned too early and creased the… » 8/20/14 12:05pm Today 12:05pm

How sure are we on this? Microwaves work by exciting water molecules. Removing the magnetron wouldn't change its function, would it? I'm thinking that the exploding stereo is bullshit? A) there's no contained water inside the stereo that would get heated to the point where it could create enough pressure to explode… » 7/29/14 5:52pm 7/29/14 5:52pm
