Stupid idea. If there is any metal, ie wire, inside, it will damage your microwave. -How will you explain that to your mother.

They get heated up, and get signals in them which make them unhealthy.

What you will need..... -T3 -Tinfoil -Lighter -Straw Put the t3 on top of the tinfoil sheet. Light the bottom of the tinfoil, and tilt the tinfoil. The T3 will begin to melt, and fall down the tinfoil. Off the melted T3, there will be steam. This is where you will follow the T3 RIGHT behind it with the straw, and inhale.
