No and no. Why do I get the weird feeling (s)he was hoping it would be, though?

Yes, they will die. But then when you cook the grits, they taste like formic acid.

Comment: I was wondering if standing in front of the microwave while reheating
something (a meal, some coffee, etc.) makes you lose brain cells. My
friend told me that it does, but I'm not sure if it's true, or that you
have to be in front of the microwave for a certain amount of time before
you start to lose brain cells.

Get yourself a can of this. Put it in a bowl and weigh the full bowl. Stick the bowl in front of a microwave. Place a bag of popcorn into the microwave and pop according to the directions. After the popcorn has popped, weigh the bowl again. See if there is a weight change. Let us know the results.

And if you eat beans or cabbage or some other gas-making foods, you can fart so much in your sleep that you can asphyxiate yourself.

I, for one, regularly snort potato skins into my sinuses. Better than cocaine, and you get roughage!

It prevents cancer. Drink a quart/liter of Lysol and your cancer worries will be over.

Comment: My roomate keeps telling me that he's heard stories/read articles
(one apparently being in National Geographic magazine) that the fumes from

is a problem for pregnant women and people with compromised immune

I don't know why, but this just seemed appropriate. (Warning: NSFW language involved.)

Comment: Hapless job applicant to get job must submit bank info company
then takes info sells it over seas(untracable) then fires said applicant
after reaping "rewards".Worst case scenario applicant has deadly work
related accident,giving the "company"free reign on the applicants assets
and credit. This is happenning as we speak and i am afraid for my
life!This is no joke.Please search fraud complaints. I am sincerly concerned as i will
start this "so called" job tomorow.I am 52 years old and have worked all
my life but never have i been so worried and scared.I will bring
mace,cellphone,and leave email stating "if not heard from in 12 hrs call
police".The owner seems to be very adept at keeping up
appearances.But there are telltale traces of chicanery.Also other
employees seem to perform as if on cue conversations are empty of real
content. If there ever was a fake company I think Ive hit the jackpot!
Please respond,emergency! thank you for listening
