OK - I lifted this from another group, but its about microwaves, and thats our thing is it not?

2) My favorite though, and I kid you not, was a small crystal approx. 3/4 inch diameter that you place in your microwave oven (in the corner). It's purpose is to make your food taste better and healthier by removing the bad microwaves and leaving the good microwaves. It was specifically designed to get those bad microwaves, which must have been very difficult. I've only seen a few microwaves I didn't like.

Oh Wow! 8)

Sounds like something from the Home Shopping Network. What a bunch of idiots people are that buy stuff from those channels. I wish I could come up with junk to sell the ample morons out there. I'd glady take their money.

Oh, no, no! :-D
That crystal is supposed to multiply the frequency and bake UR food into 4900MHz instead of 2450!

Harmonics do better(!) :lol: :lol:

However, my Feng Xwei adviser recommends type 7350 microwaves, because 3 is a number of special significance.
