    Who knew? Phone demons dislike microwaves.

    That was sweet. At first I was angry, because, you know. If you're going to do that, CALL yourself before you put it in. But this was so much better.

      For some reason I was hoping they would call the phone so it would be ringing as it was dying.

      You know, I tried nuking mine, the same thing didn't happen, I was sad.

        So microwaves are RF transmitters just focused on an extremely small enclosed space. Ever notice that honeycomb pattern in the door window? That's a faraday cage. It keeps the intense radar waves from leaking out and heating up all the water in your body as you stand in front of it.

        It also is likely very effective at keeping the RF signals from the phone inside, and the signals from the mobile tower out. You can try putting your phone in an inactive microwave, and see if you can get it to ring.

        I'd suggest you unplug it, but I have a feeling the grounding wire is part of the reason that faraday cage is so effective.

    So you mean the exploding batteries are actually a *SAFETY* feature?

    I . . . wow. I never knew cell-phones were demon-powered. Maybe this explains the brain tumors.

    OK, hate to be Captain Clueless of the Obvious Brigade, but this video has demon sounds edited in after, right?

    Mom! Dad! It's evil, don't touch it!

    Viewing from work, with no sound...

    still terrifying.

    Must have been some food in there. That's what happens when you try to feed your phone after midnight.
