Jedi Ramblings

I am a simple man who somehow manages to live a very complex life. I am a Star Wars Geek. I wear silly t-shirts. I love Harry Potter. I live in the greater Phoenix area. Also, I like Disney Stuff. If You never post pictures or personal info about yourself, probably not going to follow you, I like knowing who I follow.

Here is a Science fair project presented by a girl in a secondary school in Sussex . In it she took filtered water and divided it into two parts. The first part she heated to boiling in a pan on the stove, and the second part she heated to boiling in a microwave. Then after cooling she used the water to water two identical plants to see if there would be any difference in the growth between the normal boiled water and the water boiled in a microwave. She was thinking that the structure or energy of the water may be compromised by microwave. As it turned out, even she was amazed at the difference, after the experiment which was repeated by her class mates a number of times and had the same result.

It has been known for some years that the problem with microwaved anything is not the radiation people used to worry about, it’s how it corrupts the DNA in the food so the body can not recognize it.

Microwaves don’t work different ways on different substances. Whatever you put into the microwave suffers the same destructive process. Microwaves agitate the molecules to move faster and faster. This movement causes friction which denatures the original make-up of the substance. It results in destroyed vitamins, minerals, proteins and generates the new stuff called radiolytic compounds, things that are not found in nature.

So the body wraps it in fat cells to protect itself from the dead food or it eliminates it fast. Think of all the Mothers heating up milk in these ‘Safe’ appliances. What about the nurse in Canada that warmed up blood for a transfusion patient and accidentally killed him when the blood went in dead. But the makers say it’s safe. But proof is in the pictures of living plants dying!

NO, YOU PIG-IGNORANT ASSWIPES.

SOME KID’S CLASS PROJECT IS NOT REAL SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH. YOU’VE HEARD OF “DOUBLE BLIND”, RIGHT? CALL ME WHEN IT’S PUBLISHED IN NATURE.

the structure or energy of the water

what the fuck does that even mean you realize that a water molecule is made up of three fucking atoms and if you rearrange it it isn’t water anymore and you would fucking notice

the problem with microwaved anything is not the radiation people used to worry about

Here is a handy diagram I drew of all the different types of radiation:

The Electromagnetic Spectrum Cheat Sheet

Microwaves != nuclear reactors, so calm your tits.

it’s how it corrupts the DNA in the food so the body can not recognize it

…do you understand what DNA is and how eating works? DNA is a jumble of protein in the middle of each cell and it tells the cells in that particular organism how to make more cells. Your body does not care about whether your food has any DNA in it or not. The chemicals it cares about are things like vitamins and sugars, as well as inorganic shit like salt.

(You can denature DNA by heating it or using chemicals like urea. It is like what happens when you fry an egg, which is basically a big glob of protein—the strands break apart and it looks like tiny white strings. Very cool.)

Microwaves agitate the molecules to move faster and faster.

I…just…that is the fucking definition of heat, whether you’re heating something over a flame or in a microwave or using the Sun. The difference is that microwaves mostly affect the water molecules in your food and they don’t need to use as much heat. Water boils at 100°C, which is just about as hot as water can get before it just turns into steam; but that’s like the lowest setting on your oven. Oven- or stove-cooked food tastes different partly because it uses higher temperatures and partly because heat is transferred in a different way.

This movement causes friction

That’s not what friction is.

It results in destroyed vitamins, minerals, proteins and generates the new stuff called radiolytic compounds, things that are not found in nature.

Let’s take these one at a time.

  • Vitamins are classified as water-soluble or fat-soluble. So cooking things in water will dissolve the water-soluble vitamins (C and all the B’s). Just plain heat doesn’t do that, so microwaving veggies—which keeps the water in—is actually a healthier option.
  • Proteins: Breaking the chemical bonds in proteins (denaturing) is a part of any cooking. However, denatured protein is still nutritious—that’s why you can meet your protein intake with foods like fried eggs and baked chicken.
  • Minerals are just chemical elements, like off the periodic table—sodium, iron, potassium. (Vitamins and proteins are very complex combinations of elements.)

Which brings me to the “radiolytic compound” bullshit. When you talk about breaking apart, say, iron—you’re talking about breaking down the iron atoms themselves. Which is a whole lot different than breaking the bonds between atoms. It takes hella radiation. You need shit like gamma rays—the OOOH SCARY NUCULAR radiation—which we’ve already established do not come from your microwave.

things that are not found in nature

What the shit does that even mean? You all know radioactive elements occur in nature, right? In rocks and also in living cells. That’s right, you have this radioactive kind of carbon INSIDE YOU. You get it by eating those delicious plants. We can tell how long ago something died by how much of it is left.

Tons of shit that occurs naturally is horribly bad for you. And tons of shit that never existed until we cooked it up is great for you—like the chemical compounds in a lot of medications.

PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE THIS SHIT ARE WHY CHILDHOOD DISEASES THAT CAUSED SERIOUS ILLNESSES AND/OR DEATH THAT WE NEARLY ERADICATED WITH VACCINES ARE NOW COMING BACK AND WHY CONSPIRACY THEORIST TWATS ARE ASKING CITY COUNCIL NOT TO FLUORIDATE THE WATER AND WHY GLOBAL WARMING WILL WRECK OUR FUCKING PLANET.

LERN 2 SCIENCE. Think before you reblog. And microwave your veggies.

This was incredibly amusing to read. Thank you so much for sciencing.

Except instead of posting and asking you to ask me a question, I am just going to answer all of them in time. Because I can.  So here we go.

1:Talk about the first time you watched your favorite movie.

This is such a difficult question to answer. I feel like no matter what I answer it will be wrong. Because I can’t pigeon hole movies that way. What is my favorite movie that is a dumb action film? What is my favorite Disney Movie? What movie makes me the most emotional? These are all favorites for different reasons. I just don’t think I can really answer this question without shorting another one. Plus on top of that, most of them I couldn’t tell you where or when I saw them, as I was too young to know times, etc. So I will just list them like this

Favorite Dumb Action: True Lies. One of Arnold’s finest. Aaron and I can quote this movie to each other, and any time it comes on TV I have to watch, even if it is the shitty TNT edit.

Favorite Disney: Sleeping Beauty. Prince Phillip is MY Prince charming. Maleficent gave me feelings. I love the name Aurora, and would love to name an eventual daughter that, assuming I have a dozen kids or something like that.

Most Emotional: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 2. Look. These books were not a part of me growing up as much as some of you, (Because I am old) But I have been there from the beginning. I can say that. So while I was older, they mattered. Harry matters. And I have always had this very warped sense of what makes a true hero. Maybe it isn’t that weird, and I am over thinking it. But to me, the selfless sacrifice is the true hero. There is a reason why Batman isn’t one of my favorites. Batman loses his parents, and that is tragic. But Batman, to me at least, never makes that sacrifice. Dobby dying, making the choice to save his friends, and walking into the one place he probably feared. That is heroism. Harry walking into the forest to meet his death. That is heroism to me. It is what makes Firefighters heroes. They are willing to sacrifice to do what is right, to give their life if needed.

2:Talk about your first kiss.

My first kiss was on October 31, 1997. I was “dating”, for lack of a better word because in 7th grade I didn’t know what the fuck dating was, for 10 days. And one of her friends was having a Halloween party, and she invited me. We were hanging out and then people thought it would be fun to play Truth or Dare. Of course when my turn came about, I said Dare. Why? Because I am an idiot who always does dares if they won’t have any lasting damage to me. So we were dared by these Freshmen (I don’t know why they were there) to kiss. I turned bright red as I was still easily embarrassed. These days not so much, I am sort of free of that. When I blush it irritates me.

3:Talk about the person you’ve had the most intense romantic feelings for.

We don’t really talk about that. Sorry. I am trying to share with you all, but there is a limit. This is over the line at this point in my life.

4:Talk about the thing you regret most so far.

Coasting on natural ability. Mainly at sports, but just in life. I have a few friends who have commented that I am not bad at anything, and it isn’t fair. The problem is that it has been this way most of my life. I have always been able to figure things out if it was an issue, I learned quickly, and was coordinated and talented. As such, I never really applied myself. In anything. I went to state for wrestling in High School, but I never tried to get better. I didn’t really have to. Which is sad, as if I had, I probably could have won the whole fucking thing. I was good enough to go wrestle overseas without trying. My parents would send me to wrestling camps and I would just pout as I would rather do anything else rather than do that.

5:Talk about the best birthday you’ve had.

Birthdays suck. Not that I hate birthdays. I actually love birthdays in general. I love getting people gifts that matter in some way. It is just that mine usually end up sucking. I am pretty sure this is a byproduct of having a dead middle of the summer birthday. One year, I was at wrestling camp, sweating in a gym with no ac while it was 95 out. The next year, it was a DIFFERENT WRESTLING CAMP. One year, we invited all these people to my birthday, and only 2 of my friends came. My mom found out no one was coming so she drove through town trying to find people. One year, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows came out. I tried to just read it all day, and my ex at the time just huffed I wasn’t spending time with her. Then I cried, and she couldn’t understand why I cried over a book. (terrible first ACTUAL relationship. I was 20 when we got together and dumb.) One year my ex left me a week before it. So, usually I end up celebrating the whole month, because I have a terrible track record for actual birthdays.

Eh, I’ve already masturbated like 3 times today. Need to give the canon a break ya know?

Can’t sleep. No one is on at this time of night. Bored and not sure what to do.

the next time he
points out the
hair on your legs is
growing back remind
that boy your body
is not his home
he is a guest.
warn him to
never outstep
his welcome
again
