2014 At-Risk Survivor

Next Prev Random At-Risk Survivors have misadventures that stop short of the ultimate sacrifice. Nevertheless we salute the spirit of their colossal blunders with an Honorable Mention. Better luck next time!

Microwave Magnetron Fun Fun Fun!
2014 At-Risk Survivor
Confirmed True by Darwin

An Honorable Mention to an inventor just crazy enough to cheerfully disassemble a microwave oven, remove its magnetron and proceed to spray 2GHz RF maniacally about the countryside, eventually exploding a radio playing Really Bad Music. "It had to die."

Our suspect seems to know what he is up to, until he monitors the unnerving extent of lingering magnetron irradiation surrounding his house. Serious At-Risk behavior! Although admittedly it is difficult to deide if we are witnessing genius or stupidity.

800 Watts, One Bright Light.
