Man, I wish someone told me this in the days of free AOL trial CDs.
It seems that putting an ordinary Compact Disc into your average microwave creates freaky lightning and a dramatic fiery demise.
Although you might expect them simply to burn up like an iPhone does, these data storage discs actually provide a kick-ass light show first.
This little known scientific gem was beautifully photographed and uploaded to Twitter, which then led to the discovery of a YouTube video documenting microwaved CDs. So please don’t kill your microwave or yourself trying this – just check out these videos and pictures instead.
