I always leave spoon or fork on the plate when heating up food in microwave, just so I do not need to hold it in my hand. Nothing happens, it does not even get warm. And yes, it is made from metal. Speaking of which, the microwave walls are made from steel, so there is always a lot of it in the microwave, whenever you turn it on. Oh, horror!

During WW I chlorine was used as WMD. Bromine is similar. Nobody has buckets of clorine at home, what they have is some hypochlorite salts which, when dissolved, oxidize organics in water and slo-o-owly release minimal amounts of chlorine. The flow batteries discussed here are supposed to use elemental bromine. If it leaks in your house, you have to call hazmat team. I mean, your neighbors will have to call, because you will be either dead or very busy coughing up what is left of your lungs.

Committees have become so important nowadays that subcommittees have to be appointed to do the work.
