    If I get a high power model then remove the ray blocking window, can I literally cook something by just pointing at it? If so then what happens if the escaped microwave hits aluminum foil?

    Somehow I think a normal microwave oven can be a sick weapon.

    I don't think it will work. I don't know toooo much about microwaves, but I am aware of the process of teh cookage via the microwave.

    Nethertheless, kickass though.

    Yeah, I think that the microwave particles need to bounce back and forth, and with no microwave to bounce the particles they would just absorb into the ground and what not. You could probably heat something up a little though.

    Microwaves work by vibrating the water molecules. If you remove the blocking thing an turn it on you'll get microwaves basically pouring out. If you point something at it you'll get a nice dose of waves. I remember reading a story about a woman who put her baby in the microwave to warm it up, after the features of the baby was hard to make up. Needless to say, she melted her baby....stupid prick.

    I remember reading about how the Soviets cooked a dogs internal organs experimenting with a microwave gun. Don't know how true it was but microwave weapons do exist.

    It doesn't have to be water - but water works well. As far as I know, a microwave is capable of cooking something if the microwaves are capable of orienting the molecules due to their polarity. Water is quite a polar substance and thus can be cooked.

    I suppose if you remove the ray shield, then it probably will still cook whatever it's pointing at, but it might take longer because not as many waves will cross paths and constructively interfere... and it's further away from the microwave.

    I'm not certain that I'm correct in saying that, but it's just a guess on my part.

    I might be wrong here, but don't radars operate on the same principle? I've read that high-powered radars such as weather radars found on airplanes can fuck a person up if he stands in front of them for an extended period of time.

    ray gun

    I've seen a book called "poor man's ray gun" in which this guy gives instructions how to build a ray gun out of a microwave, and allegedly sets fire to a piece of plywood like 500 ft away. If you can't find it online, try delta press, i know they carry it.
