5. Liquids heated in a microwave...
...can be especially nasty business, apparently. There was a report of one of the news magazine shows about how liquids can become so super-heated in a microwave that if you touch the liquid with a cold spoon it will cause the liquid to explode into the air. According to the report, some people would keep heating water, for example, expecting it to come to a boil. The more they heated it the more "explosive" it would become.
