Microwaving Good-Bye!

I sat down one day, staring at my potato turning around in the microwave. I often found myself participating in this form of entertainment—waiting patiently for those three beeps, announcing my food was “done.” Then, one day, it dawned on me, “Why was I giving my family food whose water molecules were being spun around to heat it up?”...more
