    Anyone believing this sort of b/s, and then acting on it, deserves any outcome arising from such an act. :)

    No sorry dude but you aren't, people that stupid were put on this Earth for one reason and that's for other people to laugh at them.

    I mean seriously their is nothing to comment on here. I saw this hoax mentioned at another website a few days ago and just thought, yup someone will have been stupid enough to fall for this.

    **** like this makes me sad seeing 4chan go.

    They always had these great kind of things, or historical threads.

    I'm sure that goes for 99% of all end-users :3eyes: Ever heard of people trying to bake Windows Mobile 6 ROM's and Flashing incompatible ROM's on Android devices? It's hilarious as fudge to be able to witness that :banana:

    You can put some aluminium foil in the microwave, as long it covers only a third of the item and is relatively flat. Can't be crumpled! It insulates whether you are cooking, heading, or defrosting. By that I mean, if you are defrosting meat, you can put alfoil over the bits that may start to cook.

    You are not a bad person for finding this funny, its amazing, but not surprising that there are such stupid people out there. Strangely enough that can also spend £500+ on a phone.
