Cell phone crockery

Did you know you can cook popcorn (and eggs) with you cell phone? No? Oh, that's because you can't.

But the myth is good enough to inspire this badly-acted YouTube virus.

Great fun. But fake. (The orange juice is a nice touch, though. The Japanese version features tea and the French one features beer. Apparently this trick requires imbibing something.)


Wired Underwire. Warning: this link gets all "factual," and leans heavily on "science." Talk about a killjoy!


What's especially disheartening is to read the YouTube comments of the apologists for these hoaxes. Sigh.
