Fun With Microwaves

I have to blog this story because of all the fun James and I used to have with Microwaves. Apparently, some researchers in Florida have determined that microwaving a sponge kills the bacteria. They proved this by soaking a sponge in waste water and microwaving it for 2 minutes. After reading the reports, people had to try for themselves. They ran into problems. Can anyone guess? That's right, they didn't WET the sponges. They microwaved dry sponges with unfortunate results. Of course, they blamed the reporting agencies. Here's my favorite quote:

First, the sponge is worthless afterwards so you have to throw it out instead of using it. And second your entire house stinks like a burning tire for several hours, even with windows/doors open,
You know, because the burning sponge isn't an indication that he's done it wrong. That was obviously part of the experiment. Yet another thing to add to the disclaimer list.

Show of Hands

How many of you thought I was dead. Be honest. I admist, I've been gone for a while. At first, there was stuff. Then more stuff. Eventually, it was hard to pick back up again. What do you say? How do you sum up everything that kept you away from your community for six months more or less. Let's see.

Life sucked. It's better now.

That ought to do it.

I'm back and digging my way out. Don't expect a crazy mad flurry of posting. But I will try to easer my way back into regularity. Fiber and all that.

Thanks to those of you who checked on me and were concerned. Sorry I wasn't the best correspondent. I'll do better.
