Actually Luc has very good advice. This stuff is seriously dangerous
to play with. The worst part about this stuff is, it will cook your
insides completely painlessly. You will not know you are dead already
until later. There are nasty stories of radar techs doing exactly this.
Please be very careful.

I have seen photos on the net of microwave ovens lighting candles at a
distance, you do not want to be anywhere close to the RF out of that.

Besides, it is more fun to open up your microwave oven put it up high
as far away from anyone close by and point it straight up
to see if you can get a rainbow on a wet day.
