Area 5.1 Comic about Microwave OvensI had this idea about the notion of never putting anything metal into a microwave oven because people think it would explode. My thought being that the people who think this aren't aware of what the inside of the oven is made of.

Clearly it helps to have a bit of an understanding about how a microwave works.
OK, disclaimer - if you are going to put metal inside then just read up about what to do and what not to do (unless you want a light-show), and remember running it without any food in (or very dry food) can be worse.
You can't beat a bit of jeopardy!
