An intact microwave is completely safe unless you try to compromise its construction, the same way an intact washing mashine runs no risk of drowning you unless you fall into it, and an intact vaccum cleaner runs no risk of electrocuting you unless you take off the cover and start poking at the motor with it plugged … » 7/29/14 4:04pm Yesterday 4:04pm

Eh, you DON'T have the right for people to be comfortable about you. It's absolutely run. Plenty of people don't like me I'm sure for plenty of reasons. Some might be personal flaws, and some are probably just objective elements of who I am. Like a grown adult, I don't hold it against them if they don't treat me … » 7/23/14 3:34am 7/23/14 3:34am
