    If I were Peter, I would know exactly what to do with that ex-burrito

    If you’re dumb enough to stand there for 2 and a half hours while your burrito chars, it is not entirely Jason’s fault.

    I wonder if Jason enters the time on the microwave the way I do. On the theory that eight or nine seconds either way doesn’t really matter, I tend to press one button multiple times; for a minute I press 55, minute and a half I press 88, for two and a half I press 222. For other values like three minutes I press the “one minute” button three times.

    Of all the people in that household, you would think that Peter would have the most expertise in running the microwave. Why would he listen to Jason?

    Even Peter would have had a clue about the five minute mark… Or maybe at the five minute mark his burrito already looked like that.

    How do you program a microwave beyond 99:99? Could’ve baked it in a regular oven in 20-30 minutes….

    I love Quincy’s expression. “Congratulations, you finally found something I won’t eat.”

    If Quincy sat on one of Jason’s computer displays, he’d be a monitor lizard.

    Well, I could’ve told you that, Peter.

    Jason had something to do with him trying that…

    Have you read the replies to dadoctah’s comment? Lots of people this morning who are very cavalier about microwave operation and persnickety at the same time. Makes me a little nervous but willing to observe from a distance.

    You also need a new microwave.

    Microwave ovens are built to be resonant cavities tuned to the microwave radio frequency of roughly 2.5GHz.

    Once upon a time… I decided to have microwaved eggs.

    Years ago I worked with a woman who regularly put in extra zeros when trying to microwave a potato. We had to regularly get new microwave ovens. She was pretty smart, in general, really. Maybe it was deliberate.

    My father in law put a meal in the microwave, and instead of 2 minutes 30 seconds, he did 23 minutes. Nearly started a fire!

    For example, a minute and a half can be entered as either “90” or as “1:30”.

    Can you even program it to run for that long?

    Over my lifetime, I’ve saved literally dozens of seconds by entering quick versions of nuking times: for example, 88 seconds instead of 1:30.

    First time I ever used a microwave, nearly 40 years ago, for some reason I didn’t read the directions on the package. I microwaved a frozen bagel for three minutes. Made a good hockey puck.

    Set the power at 50% and double the cook time. The food heats more evenly.

    Many times people in my work area used the_Popcorn_ setting on the microwave. Talk about working a smoke filled room? The last smoke-em-if-you-got-em caused the smoke alarm to go off and alerted the Fire Station. Had to evacuate the building. Glad I’m retired! ;-p

    I don’t believe that Peter, AKA the Walking Appetite, would wait more than 3 minutes before looking for his food.

    There is NO way Jason didn’t know that. It’s amazing he’s still alive with how often he messes with his siblings…

    Jason was entirely correct. The problem was that Peter put the decimals on the wrong end.
