Deep Thoughts on Life: 1
While looking at the microwave the other day, I realized that there is something as wasteful as placing nipples on human males. It happened when I caught the light reflecting off the shiny number pad at just the right angle to notice that I had a really dirty number pad. The buttons had greasy smudges all over them. All the buttons that is, except the number 9. Instantly, I had an epiphany. The number 9 should not be on microwave keypads! You never microwave anything for 9 seconds, too short, never for 90 seconds, just type 1:30, and never for 9 minutes, long enough to melt steel.
The removal of the number 9 would also help the arrangement of buttons on the microwave. With there currently being 10 number buttons, they do not pack together very well. If there were just 9 buttons, they would all fit perfectly in a 3 x 3 grid!
If anyone knows people that design microwaves, let them know of this grave problem facing millions of microwaves worldwide.
