Are they suggesting that the microwave causes a physical reaction in the grape and exploding grapes fly out ? Or is it more like vending machines, if you pay your microwave in grapes it rewards you with fireballs ? Perhaps there is a slot for them ?

OMG... absolutely true! But if you eat the baking soda first, you'll be fine.



(Who the hell eats straight baking soda? Blecch! Can't see watermelon making it any more appetizing.)

Yow!

Comment: I received an e-mail about your group and it said to click here
to go to your website, so I did. Did I ever get the surprise of my life.It
went to a site called XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.com. It has on it nude couples,teen
whores,exploited whores, ****ing whores( a quotation from the
site),sex,sex toys, and more. I thought you should know about this as I am
sure it has nothing to do with mammograms and I am sure some people would
be appalled by this.

Melting or burning any plastic can cause the release of several dangerous chemicals, including carbon monoxide, dioxins and furans. Displacement of oxygen in an atmosphere by the carbon monoxide or simply it being used up by the fire, can cause sensations of euphoria, the same principle behind whippets, which some people might see as getting "high."

However this is not inherent specifically to either computer plastic or in black plastic. Nor do I see how "sleep mode" argue into it, as those are simply power saving modes the computer goes into.
