How to make a time machine

Post by liquidhandwash »

I've made a time machine from a microwave, I would like to see if anyone can replicate the results. You will need a microwave and a stopwatch. and it can only transport you 39 seconds into the future. It works on every microwave I've tried so far your results may differ.
First, put a cup of water in the microwave, and take a baseline reading with a stopwatch. Type in 99 seconds into the microwave and hit start on the stopwatch and the microwave at the same time. Stop the watch when it beeps you should get a read of 99 seconds or 1 minute and 39 seconds or close to it.
Now type in 100 seconds to the microwave and start the watch and microwave at the same time you should get a reading of 60 seconds, when the microwave beeps. Congratulations you have been transported 39 seconds into the future as the microwave beeped at 100 seconds, but to you and your watch, only 60 seconds have passed.
enjoy!

Do NOT and i repeat, DO NOT put electronics or metals inside a microwave.
Also, this is not a prank-board and timetravel like this is not a thing.

Most likely you entered 99 seconds like "nine, nine" in your mw and the mw has only 2 digits, therefore seconds. So 99 seconds which gives truly 1min 39sec.
With the 100, well... i think you hit 1 then 0 then 0 and your mw interpretes this as 1:00 as it has 3 digits.

Hi liquidhandwash just wondering if you can confirm for me about your time machine theory i am bit puzzeled as to what ive done wrong, i managed to time jump 10 sec but my microwave is now dead im wondering if you used a quartz digital watch or a mechanical watch as i used a digital and im convinced that the microwaves affect the electronics so i think i will stick with my phone booth i cant afford the cost of replacing microwaves.

There was this one time, I thought a microwave oven was trying to start a conversation with me. It said, "Hi."

I said, "Hi" back, but then I realized what the oven was saying, uh displaying, was just a message about its current power setting, "High Power" but abbreviated as "Hi."

Funny thing about your time machine is that used this stuff for a few years now to confuse people, especially at work.
You know...
Things like "I prefer to cook my meal for 6 minutes and 90 seconds becase after 7 and a half minutes it is too hot.....
I really love how the faces of people change when do these things....
First you see utter confusion, then they start to think about possible difference.
Once they finally realise it is all the same they usually don't even bother to say anything anymore ROFL
Exploring the works of the old inventors, mixng them up with a modern touch.
To tinker and create means to be alive.
Bringing the long lost back means history comes alive again.
