Default BIG mistake!

i got home 30 minutes ago and started setting up my hookah. but i had this idea to light my exoticas in the microwave, that was a huge mistake! my microwave started doing some really weird stuff and now its broken and it didnt even light my exoticas. i think there should be a warning on the box.

when you think about it, or at least when i did, it sounded like a really good idea. pop the exoticas in on a plate, set it for 10 minutes, go back to setting things up, then *DING DING DING*, coals are done, grab em out of the microwave and smoke my bowl.

Hahah dude no offense but...pwned. jk but that sucks about your microwave. I stick to my stove personally. I'm thinking about getting a portable stove soon. Actually I'm probably going to leave now to go get one. I don't have work for another 3 hours. w00t!

Do you have an idea why your microwave broke?

You realise how a microwave works right? It uses electromagnetic waves to vibrate the water, fat and other such particals in an object, and seeing that coal probably aint gonna have a lot of H2O etc in it you wont be able to light them..

Did some white light flash when you put in there? If so you made plasma, can be done with a match or something aswell.

Lol wow um don't microwaves only heat up things with moisture in them? lol wow that sux

I've heard micro. work for coals, but I would have dared never to try it cuz it might have not worked. Your story is a great example >_<

Just use the stove next time daedra :P

yea i think ill stick to the stove like all the rest of the normal people. i was feeling adventurous today and thought i was exploring the revolutionary. guess i was wrong. the microwave doesnt work, so i guess now the house doesnt have a microwave. i still think exotica should put a warning on the box saying that the coals are not microwaveable. just think, what if it actually had worked? i wouldve made hookah history.

PS: im thinking that maybe its the exoticas. when i get a new microwave im planning to see if its possible with three kings, or coconara. it has to be possible. until then, im going to wait till my parents get home and endure their bitching when they find out what ive done to the microwave.

i found a microwave for 300$, it looks like its a high enough quality to handle coals. im going to purchase it right now.

i have a feeling that there are either 2 reasons why my microwave broke today:
A) exoticas just arent microwaveable.
B) my microwave wasnt strong enough to handle it.

i have a feeling that if i get this to work, i will start a whole new thing in the area of hookahs, imagine how greatly things will change. i shouldnt even be posting my plans here!

PS: ok, i found a better one, it costs a little bit more but its worth it if i can revolutionize hookah: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16896111098

the caution hot thing on coffee cups is rational. exotica shouldve put a warning about this on the box a long time ago. if i had seen on the side of it, a warning reading, "Caution: Exoticas are NOT microwaveable", i wouldnt have a broken microwave.

you got to give it some thought man. i spend 440 bucks for a top notch microwave, i put in a plate of coconara coals, heat them up, and then im on the porch smoking my bowl, do you have any idea how revolutionary that will be? i may not be the guy who invented the phunnel bowl, or the nammor/razan, etc, but i will be the guy who completely changed the coal business. trust me, i know what im doing.

am i the only one who has the same vision? think about it, you put them in the microwave and theres no need to worry about turning off the stove, no need to worry about the smell, no need to worry about forgetting the coals, there is pretty much no worries, pop em in for like 10 minutes, you hear the ding, then you walk over, BAM! they are ready!

today may have been a complete failure. actually, a TOTALLY COMPLETE FAILURE! my microwave went haywire, all this popping and sparks and tons of smoke, but just wait till i get this new one. then youll be singing a entirely different tune.
