Today's scite is Unwise Microwave Oven Experiments by William J. Beaty at the University of Washington. It's not clear that he's adding anything new to the site- the video of melting a beer bottle is labeled as "new 2005." Do read the safety notes- some of these things are dangerous not only to your microwave, but to your physical safety. He has some good videos, photos and descriptions that should allow you to enjoy these unwise experiments on the site rather then in your own kitchen. In short, you really shouldn't try these at home.
Also, explore the large number of links that her provides to sites with similar or related content. This is great stuff: sometimes amazing, sometimes hilarious.
