I like to look at yahoo news articles now and then when I have time to burn. When I saw one called "14 ways a microwave makes cooking simpler", with "Splatter free method for cooking bacon" as the text that links to the article.(total bullshit anyway)

I swear, this author talks about things such as softening/melting butter and cooking bacon and softening cream/ice cream is unbelievable!

Here is the main part of the article:

"14 Cooking Uses for Your Microwave

If you use this gizmo only to zap popcorn or heat up leftovers, prepare to be impressed. If you already know about all these, we think you'll be glad you were reminded. Here are more than 20 ways your microwave can save you time in the kitchen."

And the list of things to cook? Abysmal:
-Toast Fresh Bread Crumbs
-Soften Brown Sugar
-Warm Maple Syrup
-Soften Butter
-Melt Chocolate
-Soften Cream
-Toast Pine Nuts and Sliced Almonds
-Steam Asparagus And Green Beans
-Melt Butter
-Soften Ice Cream
-Warm Tortillas
-Toast Coconut
-Cook Bacon
-Steam Carrots

No, we totally couldn't think of stuff like this ourselves. I'm sure this woman would be surprised what kind of stuff college students like myself think up when it comes to "food + microwave" ..
Even better is the fact that the description says "more than 20 ways", when there are only 14 and even the title itself says "14".
The really bad thing about this is that she was paid to write it.

Now I'm sure you're after the article itself, right? Being the courteous person I am, I have place the link here:

For those of you who can comment on the article, go crazy.
