Samsung Galaxy S III gets microwaved, ends up on eBay
The following "experiment", if you will, should not be recreated at home. Why? Because it is dangerous for both you and the ones around you, not to mention that an expensive piece of electronics gets destroyed along the way. This guy, however, seems wacky enough to melt gadgets in his microwave, and the latest item on his list is the Samsung Galaxy S III.

Needless to say, the smartphone does not survive after being exposed to radiation for several minutes. No consumer product that works on electrical power will make it through that kind of torture, for that matter.

Believe it or not, this "professionally microwaved" Samsung Galaxy S III is now on eBay with a $2,012 price tag attached to it. In fact, the "author" is claiming that his creation is a piece of "original artwork", although the sight is anything but pretty. No, we wouldn't buy it either.

I want to get his bOOOOOOmmmm Blaster and shove it up his rear end and bOOOOOOOmmmm blast him just because he's so dang annoying!

But watching the SGSIII getting microwaved was strangely fascinating. My SGSIII turned away in disgust and then started weeping uncontrollably. I had to restart it.

WHAT THE HELL DID THAT PHONE EVER DO TO THAT GUY? That's crule and unusual punishment to an electronic device and there should be come kind of law against it! If he didn't want his GS3, I would've been more than happy to take it off his hands.

He should microwave himself. The phone is now garbage. Why would he think that anyone would give him even a dollar for that POS?

AHA I watched it twice! Hilarious! But no not for 2,012, I wouldn't buy it. Did he price it at that because 2012 was last year?

I hate it when people do that crap, I don't care if it is an Android or iOS device, good working devices should be cared for and used until hopelessly obsolete, then properly recycled. I still use my droid 1 as an alarm clock, and when my RAZR is replaced, it will take over (because of the lapdock function I was going to use it as a sort of smart TV, but Archos TV connect will take that job)
