Microwave usage- Very Important
I feel that the following is information that anyone who uses a
microwave oven to heat water should know.
My 26-year old son decided to have a cup of coffee. He took a cup of
water and put it in the microwave to heat it up (something that he had done numerous times
before). I am not sure how long he set the timer for, but he told me he wanted to bring the water to a boil.
When the timer shut the oven off, he removed the cup from the oven. As helooked into the cup, he noted that the water was not boiling, but
instantly the water in the cup "blew up" into his face. The cup remained intact
until he threw it out of his hand but all the water had flown out into his face
due to the build up of energy. His whole face is blistered and he has 1st and 2nd degree burns to his
face, which may leave scarring. He also may have lost partial sight in his left eye.
While at the hospital, the doctor who was attending to him stated that this is a fairly
common occurrence and water (alone) should never be heated in a microwave oven. If water is heated in this manner, something should be placed in the
cup to diffuse the energy such as a wooden stir stick, tea bag, etc. It is however a
much safer choice to boil the water in a tea kettle.
General Electric's response:
Thanks for contacting us, Mr. Williams. I will be happy to assist you. The e-mail that you received is correct. Micro waved water and other liquids
do not always bubble when they reach the boiling point.They can actually get superheated and not bubble at all. The superheated liquid will bubble up
out of the cup when it is moved or when something like a spoon or tea bag is put into it.
To prevent this from happening and causing injury, do not heat any
liquid for more than two minutes per cup. After heating, let the cup stand in them
microwave for thirty seconds before moving it or adding anything into it.
Indian Immigration Conspiracy- Be careful
This is a well organized conspiracy by Indian Immigration, Police, Customs
and Air India staff with Networking at all the Indian International
Airports. Be watchful when ever you give your passport to
Immigration/Customs/Air India staff. The pass port can be easily tampered
and can create trouble to you. They have found easy way of making money
from NRIs. This is the way it works.
At the time of the passenger's
departure, if the passenger is not looking at the officer while he is
stamping the exit, the officer very cleverly tears away one of the page
from the passport. When the passenger leaves the immigration counter, the
case is reported on his computer terminal with full details. Now all over
India they have got full details of the passenger with Red Flag flashing
on the Pass port number entered by the departure immigration officer. They
have made their money by doing above. On arrival next time, he is
interrogated. Subject to the passenger's period of stay abroad, his
income and standing etc., the price to get rid of the problem is settled
by the Police and Immigration people. If someone argues, his future is
spoiled because there are always some innocent fellows who think the
honesty is the basis of getting justice in India.
Please advise every passenger to be careful at the airport. Whenever they
hand over the passport to the counters of Air India, or immigration or the
customs, they must be vigilant, should not remove eyes from the passport
even if the officer in front tries to divert their attention. Also, please
pass this information to all friends, media men and important politicians.
Every month 20-30 cases are happening all over India to rob the NRIs the
minute he lands. Similar case has happened with Aramco's Arifuddin. He was
traveling with his family. They had six passports. They got the visa of
America and decided to go via Hyderabad from Jeddah. They reached Hyd.
Stayed about a month an left for States.
When they reached States, the page of the American visa on his wife's
passport was missing. At the time of departure from Hyd. It was there,
without which neither the airline nor the immigration allow them to leave.
Whole family had to return to hyd helplessly. On arrival at Bombay back,
they were caught by the police and now it is over 2 months, they are
running after the Police, Immigration officers and the Courts. On going
into details with him, he found out the following. One cannot imagine,
neither can believe, that the Indian Immigration dept can play such a
nasty game to harass the innocent passengers. All the passengers
travelling to & fro India via bombay and Hyd must be aware of this
conspiracy. Every month 15 to 20 cases are taking place, at each
mentioned airport, of holding the passengers in the crime of tearing away
the passport pages. On interviewing some of them, none of them was aware
of what had happened. They don't know who, when and why tore away the
page from the middle of the passport. One can imagine the sufferings of
such people at the hands of the immigration, police and the court
procedures in India after that. The number of cases is increasing in the
last 2-3 years. People who are arriving at the immigration, they are
questioned and their passports are being held and they have to go in
interrogations. Obviously, the conspiracy started about 2 to 3 years
ago, now the results are coming. An official source who did not want to
disclose his name & identity told to me that this is a well planned
conspiracy in which the Immigration dept. and the Police dept. are hand in
glove. Some of the Air India counter staff too is involved in this
GSM Phone usage
at petrol Pump - Very dangerous
ATTN ALL CELL PHONE USERS
Here's a caution from Shell advising against using cell phones at petrol pumps .Do share it with
If you're USING Mobile Phones while driving a
car keep them in the car while filling up fuel. There have been 3 accidents so far due to usage of
mobile phones in the petrol bunks.
2 months ago at a petrol station in Bandar Sri Damansara. The car owner put his hand phone on
the boot and started pumping fuel. The phone rang and the car caught fire from the fumes coming
out of the tank.
A man got his face burnt while talking on the phone as he was pumping petrol.
A man burnt his pants because the phone was in his pants pocket and rang while pumping petrol.
Using a hands-free WILL NOT reduce the risk. KEEP IT IN THE CAR. Almost all phones will indicate
"Missed Calls" & the number. So why take the risk? Apparently it is the key pad or ringer that
produces a small amount of electricity spark, enough to ignite the petrol fumes. Please take note
and forward this to your friends. It isn't no joke!
