Spotted this on the copyediting-l list, and thought it might interest those
of us who have to document microwave ovens, which turn out to be far more
dangerous than one might think:

Scan down for information on operating the oven with the door open,
exploding superheated water, metal combustion, and other fun facts of life
with microwaves you really have to hope none of your audience ever tries.
"But your honor... the documentation didn't say that we shouldn't do it!"

Some days I'm _really_ glad I mostly document software...
