Is it a good idea to microwave a nintendo wii? (video and commentary)
I was watching some of the "Is it a good idea to microwve this?" videos on youtube (posted by JPizzle1122), which is kind of like mythbusters, where these dudes conduct experiments by putting random stuff in microwaves and seeing if it is a good idea to microwave various stuff (besides food of course), like batteries, remote controls, cds, etc (usually with bizarre results), and later give a verdict. Anyways, in this video, the guys decide to microwave a Nintendo Wii. I found this video to be pretty funny, as the wii soon catches fire and the metal was even starting to melt as well. Disclaimer: while the duo claim that microwaving a wii is a "holy idea", personally I don't recommend getting ideas from this, unless if you don't care for your game system of course. By the way, JPizzle1122 has posted similar videos about the Xbox 360, Play Station 3, and other game systems as well (like the Gameboy).
So, what do you think of these videos?
