I must get a new microwave. I still have the old one which sometimes runs on with the door open I nuked my finger in it once. Now the clunky old thing won't even defrost a frozen ready meal... without a whole load of faffing about. Tonight's plastic tray of slop has had 20mins and there's still ice in it. Maybe should run it with the door open and give it a poke with a fork while it heats up?

I have the microwave I bought for £49 in 1997 to heat up Project Pitchfork's rider in their dressing room....

There is, of course, an easy way to avoid Dodgy Microwave Misery. Buy a steamer - either one to stand on yer cooker or a self-propelled version. Then sign up for armoured grub deliveries and you're sorted.

I find the food tastes even better when it's powered by the breath of the LORD.

Okay, disposal of old microwave! Could I suggest we bainiac it, We can start a thermit reaction going in it, while running it on full power (extension lead into the garden) Lit with sparklers (maybe a hundred in a tight roll). Should make an impressive hole in SW London!

I like this idea, partly because it nuked my finger a while back so I'll have revenge... but mostly to have something to put up on youtube.

I'll run the idea by nemesis_to_go because he has a back garden and I think there's a fire station closer to his place.

We can always say we rushed the microwave out to the back garden when our lunch caught fire.

Nah, we can say it's a late Diwali celebration, when it is traditional to make things go BANG! at regular intervals throughout the bloody night.

Thermit welding is how they join railway lines together, you know...

However, if the main problem with the microwave is that it doesn't put out much power, I fear the result of this experiment might be a bit of a small poot.

So we can use you garden as ground zero then?

I'll sort out a date just as soon as I get a new microwave.
