Sponge in the microwave?

1. Hmm, maybe. Just wouldn't try it with a dry sponge, as it can smoke and catch fire. We can all agree, fire is a deadly killer.
2. Wouldn't mike a sponge that has metal fibers, as it will catch fire.
3. Miking a sponge that has chemical detergents and cleaners soaked into it, will turn those liquids into toxic gas, which will be released into the kitchen when you open the mike's door (source - Consumer Reports). Mmm, nothing's quite like the smell of aerosolized carcinogens in the morning!
4. Anyway, microwaves are deadly killers (source - common knowledge, I assume).

Today's very cute Fall Google turned up this link with sponge nuking info.

CYM, do you own a cellphone? You know you could be giving yourself brain tumors, right?

Hmm, that's like asking if I know rain causes moisture. laugh I assume it was a rhetorical question.

In this link, I got a good chuckle when I read the old standy answer from the wireless industry, If you're worried about brain tumors, just use a hands-free set! because then you just wear the phone on your hip and can expose internal organs and certain other cherished areas to the waves, rather than just your brain. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/cell-phone-tumor-link-found/

Soon as people stop getting cell-phone shaped tumors on the side of their head that they most often use to talk on the phone, then I'll admit there is no evidence.

"After evaluating several studies on the possibility of a connection between cellphones and glioma and a noncancerous brain tumor known as acoustic neuroma, members of the International Agency for Research on Cancer ó part of the World Health Organization ó agreed that there's limited evidence that cellphone radiation is a cancer-causing agent (carcinogenic). As a result, the group classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to people."http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-living...er/faq-20057798

The only solution is to have a private jet take you all over the world whining about it and relaxing on you private yacht or in one of your many large houses so as to use as much carbon as possible. sick

So you saw that Clooney and DeCaprio came boating in on that 221 foot yacht that is carbon free, eh?

NASA's Asteroid Initiative: Find a harmless asteroid and "redirect" it into lunar orbit.
http://www.nasa.gov/content/nasa-identifying-candidate-asteroids-for-redirect-mission/

That's two kinds of potential deadly killer: I'd say it should be fairly slim chance that they accidentally sling it at the earth instead (plus, it's a pretty small rock...for now). But bringing back samples in a space rocket (samples that haven't had the benefit of being purged through high heat while entering our atmosphere) sounds like a great way to give us all Space Cooties.

I carry around an article from the NY Post dated August 3, 1989 with the headline "Latest Cancer Suspect: Communion Wafers!" which I pull out when anyone starts to tell me about how what I am eating is bad for me.

Yes, the New England Journal of Medicine reported (remember the article is dated 1989) that the wafers made for Roman Catholic and Anglican use in England were tested and found to have a high amount of gluten. At the time, the British Bishops Council refused to allow for gluten-free Hosts.

I know that now, at least in NY, gluten-free Hosts are allowed. People tell the priest beforehand and he keeps a gluten free host aside for that person.

Who knew?

Never mind the host. How about all drinking out of the same chalice in flu season?

Ceramics may be deadly killers, particularly very old ones (as in, handed down from grandma) because cadmium, barium, lead, and worse things may have been used in their manufacture. I (stupidly) trust new ceramics (white in color) bought in the U.S. even when they are made in China. The ones I donít trust are typically sold in shops specializing in imported goods, and have strange colors (red, yellow, orange, blue) in or on the ceramic plate or bowl. I also donít trust thick resin-like glazes on ceramics, or ceramics that have lots of lines (crazing) and dots visible in and under the glaze.

But gluten only increases the risk of cancer in people who have celiac disease or who are gluten intolerant, right? So for them, eating gluten-containing wafers would have the same (or less) effect as eating wheat bread, graham crackers, oatmeal or certain pastas - anything with gluten, really.

"There is no connection between gluten and risk of most cancers. The exception is intestinal cancer, and even then, gluten only increases risk if a person has celiac disease, or true gluten intolerance." https://www.oncologynutrition.org/erfc/hot-topics/does-gluten-cause-cancer/
