When my housemates are both out of town...

I like to put crazy shit in the microwave, and see what happens.

After seeing that FHM spread of Kari Byron from mythbusters (and watching the behind the scenes video) I learned that Ivory soap will blow up like balls-out-crazy.

So I tried it:



It feels really weird.

Then one of my housemates came home and I made her feel it, and she cried and ran away.

It was the best Saturday ever.

It may look tasty, but it still smells so soapy it hurts my eyes to even just to get to close to it.

That is plain freaky.
Please specify you rmethods for this experiment, so that I may duplicate.

I would like to see what other brands do.

Ok, so basically, I just took a bar of Ivory, dipped it in a bowl of water, and set it on a paper towel inside the microwave.

I set it for 2:00 and let it run... we pulled it out with :41 left on the clock, because it looked like it was about to expand into the cieling.

The microwave should be fine, there's no sparking or smoking or anything... it may just smell like soap for a few minutes... (it made my kitchen smell like soap)

I may try another brand later; i think Ivory works well becuase it has a weird, air-filled structure or something? that's why Ivory floats in the tub when everything else sinks.

If you google 'ivory soap microwave' (not in quotes) it pulls up several sites.

I totally posted here this morning...WTF? No biggie, I just said something stupid about having the need to microwave something. I am thinking a bag of marshmellows and some eggs would be way cool!
