My Twitter status:
rebeccawatson can’t use the microwave at the same time as the Internet. I’m practically Amish.
Joshua: I’m going to take a moment to mock your techno-suffering.
me: my suffering only lasts 30 seconds to 5 min., so….
Joshua: It’s somewhat troublesome, though.
I’m guessing that your WiFi signal is getting knocked out when you run it?
me: I guess so
Joshua: That shouldn’t happen. WiFi and microwaves use the same frequency of EM radiation, but the shielding in your microwave should prevent it from getting out and interfering with your WiFi.
How old is it?
me: um, 20 years or so.
am I going to get cancer?
Joshua: I mean, I’m not actually joking. A leaking microwave is not a good thing.
You should get it replaced. Or at least stand really far away when you run it.
me: hm. ok.
