Thw world's going to hell. The icecaps are melting, animals are going extinct, we've eaten pracically every fish in the sea, Iraq's in freeform meltdown (still), serial murderers are wandering the streets, my project is days away from a terminal crash and burn, it's nearly Christmas and I still have a ton of shopping to do.
But does any of that concern me? Not really, no. Instead the question that is perplexing me is this : Why is it that when you heat up some pasta in the microwave the bowl may be the same temperature as a Saturn V exhasust cone but the filthy tagliotelinni (or whatever) is still completely icy. It doesn't make any sense . . . microwaves are supposed to heat water, not porcelain.
