Some of us don’t have microwaves because our kitchens are too small. Very true story, very sad story, very cold everything all the time. But for those of us who do have microwaves: Have I got a video for YOU. Do you ever put something in the microwave and set it for what you think is an appropriate amount of time, and then the microwave dings and it’s not as hot as you would’ve liked it? So you have to put it back in again? And your life is RUINED? Well, maybe it would’ve been hotter if you put it in a different place! Which place, you ask? Well, spoiler alert, not the middle! Spoiler alert again, anywhere but right in the middle!

“Ooohhhhhhhhhh.” I didn’t listen to anything he said, to be honest. I was just waiting to hear where I’m supposed to put things in the microwave. Something about beams? Carousels? Math? Did they talk about math? (Via ViralViralVideos.)

  1. He left his mouth open for a looooooooong time after that Tea Kettle joke. If only we could have a gif of that…

  2. Wait Kelly you have no room in your kitchen for a microwave? Microwaves are fairly small, do you even have a kitchen or just a mini fridge and a table? I am very concerned

  3. that does explain why the middle of the plate/hotpocket is always colder, but I always assumed it was because it was insulated against the heat by virtue of being the inside of whatever I’m heating up.

    Can he figure out how to microwave pizza without making the crust soggy? That’s why the toaster oven is so much better.

  4. I like how they modified this microwave to hell, but didn’t actually explain how microwaves work.

  5. Why doesn’t that thing have foil on it that works for me all the time.

  6. Can someone please explain now how I can microwave a Hot Pocket to a level somewhere between Ice Cube and Lava?

  7. My kitchen is also too small for a microwave but Doritos and beer don’t really need to be warmed up so it’s all good.

  8. Haha, nerds.

  9. Do you have a stove? Because it blew my mind when I realized I could just reheat leftovers in a pan with a little bit of olive oil, and it’s better (taste/even heat) than microwaving too (mostly pasta and other Italian food, but I eat a lot of that).

  10. dont need to watch this. i learned how to use a microwave from Harry Hard-On.

  11. Kelly, I feel a deep spiritual connection to you and your lack of microwave. Fact: Pizza Rolls are kindof not worth the wait to bake them in a conventional oven. Not that I have ever eaten frozen pizza rolls in a fit of petulant pique, mind you. That is just a silly idea.

  12. Is that the guy from the “chickens don’t move their head” video? I think that’s the guy from the “chickens don’t move their head” video.

  13. I actually really liked this. I mean, they could have explained how microwaves work a bit more (at all), but I like a guy making youtube videos about “how stuff works” and the sincerity of Mike is pretty great. A+ to those guys! Microwave your way to the top!

  14. I’m put off by all the warming up coffee in a microwave talk. That is the worst coffee. That is desperation coffee. Microwaved coffee is I’m addicted to coffee coffee.
