    Microwave - Alcohol


    so my neighbour didn't realise this is what happens when you put brandy in the microwave. lucky it wasn't a huge amount and just some for the christmas pudding! He still managed to blow the door off his microwave!

    I wonder what would happen if you put a big bowl of home made napalm and put 100 rounds of .357magnum inside that bowl.

    And a cat next to it! would it live or die?

    When a round goes off in anything but a gun the casing is actually the thing that becomes the dangerous projectile.

    I don't think the cat would make it lol.

    So basically, if the casing is not "held" in place, it will become the projectile and the bullet will just remain stationary?

    Even if it has a cook off the heat gets the primer and then it goes or does the gunpowder blow from any source of heat on any part of the casing/bullet?

    At 5:20 they explain the casing thing.

    Yup. Equal force in two directions; one on the bullet and another on the casing. The casing is a lot lighter than the bullet, so it gets sent off faster than the bullet.

    My Grandpa couldn't get a 22 mag shell to fire, he said "i'll make it sweat" and threw it in the camp fire. The casing got lodged in the inside corner of his eye when it went off.

    So your neighbor put a sealed container of brandy into the microwave along with a fork for the spark? Sounds like he was secretly trying to experiment and the pudding was just the cover up.

    I think the kicker was the inclusion of the foil and the spoon. I thought it was understood that metal doesn't go in the microwave.

    2nd question, who wants warm booze, other than saki?

    On the subject of saki, I agree with CopyCat. Saki is good stuff when the situation calls for it. Never fill your own saki glass and never let a saki glass become empty.
