Random Bounces Off The Wall

OK.  Microwave controls vs. food package instructions.  If you cook something in the microwave for 1 minute, the microwave timer counts down from 60. So, if the food package says to cook something for, say, 4-1/2 minutes, do you set the timer for 4.50 (half a minute = 0.50 minute) or 4.30 (half of 1 minute (60 seconds) = 30 seconds)?  Somebody in the food industry (or the microwave industry, not sure which) has really dropped the ball here.  You’d think they’d put the microwave times on the package directions the way you should punch them in on the microwave controls, for crying out loud!

Had to share this because priceless.

My burrow, "La Maison du Hibou Sous Terre" is located on the flatlands of West Texas where I live with my computer, my books, and a lot of yarn waiting to become something.

  1. As I have dyscalculia, I don’t understand most of your first paragraph, but I hope you eventually solved the problem!
    The hat on the cat is hilarious (even though I’m not a fan of dressing animals).
    And now I want a crocheted Macdonalds box with chips (aka French fries)!!
