“I stop the microwave with 1 second to go so I can feel like a bomb disposal expert”

Many people stop the microwave with one second left and take their food out; this makes them feel like a bomb defusal/disposal expert. “I like to stop the microwave when it gets to one second. It makes me feel like I’ve dismantled a bomb just in time” was posted on Twitter by martin’ on October 4, 2009.
