These guys would have to be morons to put an open microwave below their living room table! Risk of death by microwave just for a little e-fame? No thanks...

How safe is this? Because otherwise, making a table with a magnetron on the bottom of it would be great for parties.... More a trick than practical though

someone tried to sell me a cell phone radiation preventer at the venice ecofest based on this video. she was all enthusiastic "10 million people saw how a phone can popcorn! imagine what it does to your brain--- buy my product NOW!!!" lolol

Popcorn Cell Phone Trick Revealed See How Its Done

i saw it and the megnetron thing makes alot sense

wouldnt the effects of the magnetron affect the cell phone just like the popcorn? so like putting your cell phone in a microwave? ... doesnt seem plausible to me

I did'nt think magnetrons worked that way, if it did we'd see a fue heads pop, and would'nt the microwave energy be absorbed by the wood of the table?.
