Welll, that is something that happened some time ago, I was at home and my girlfriend would come over for the weekend. I had some of that par baked bread with some of that buttery stuff with herbs inside of it, thought it would be a nice surprise....

A surprise it was indeed... I had one of those microwaves that also had an oven mode to bake bread and stuff. Only, this time I forgot to switch it to oven mode.... So, a few minutes later..., what’s that nasty smell?!? I saw a lot of smoke coming from the microwave and when I opened it, the bread came out as a piece of charcoal.... I had to open every window, door, etc, to get rid of the smoke and the smell and then my girlfriend came in.....

By the way, I know the comic Leonardo. Quite funny, I must say.

Okay, now it's my turn.
I will NEVER try again to disconnect a Dual TOS board from the motherboard once installed.
I've bent or broke a lot of pins in doing so.
Damn it :headbang:

At a place I once worked, one of the girls put a Jacket potato in the microwave. Only she put it on for 20 minutes.

Once the fire brigade had left,we all had a jolly good laugh about it :o

I think I only ever saw her eating cold food after that.
