Stoves present a similar danger, as do ovens, and boiling water. It is well
documented they all can cook eggs. In fact, really, really warm bath water
might also do the trick, not to mention the proverbial hot asphalt upon which
one could fry an egg in the California, Nevada and New Mexico deserts.
Please keep your children out of the kitchen...and bathrooms...and most of the
western states during the summer.

Subject: Cell Phone Cooks egg - Oh Oh!!!!
Need A Cooker?
Use Your Cell Phone
By Sue Mueller
Many organizations including the cell phone industry often downplay the risk
of cell phone radiation to the brain. Results from short-term studies were
used to convince consumers that use of a cell phone is not associated with
brain tumors or cancer, which only develop decades after exposure.
To be fair, no one knows exactly how much harm a cell phone can do to a
recently, news media have reported a study showing the radiation from cell
phones is so full of energy they can be used to cook eggs.
In the experiment, researchers placed one egg in a porcelain cup (because it
conducts heat easily), and put one cell phone on one side and another cell
phone on the other. The researchers then called from one cell phone to
another and kept the cell phones on after connecting.
During the first 15 minutes, nothing changed. After 25 minutes, however, the
egg shell started to become hot and at 40 minutes, the surface of the egg
became hard and bristled. Researchers found the protein in the egg had become
solid although the egg yolk was still in liquid form. After 65 minutes, the
whole egg was well cooked.
The study shows how scary cell phone radiation is. People should try to
avoid use of cell phones. Although so far no one has proved the radiation from
cell phones can cause something clinically significant. By the same token,
there has been no one who can disprove the existence of such a risk.
Children should be forbidden from cell phone use because their brains are
still growing and are particularly vulnerable to radiation.

How Two Russian Journalists Cooked An Egg
With Their Mobile Phones
Vladimir Lagovski and Andrei Moiseynko from Komsomolskaya Pravda Newspaper
in Moscow decided to learn first-hand how harmful cell phones are. There is no
magic in cooking with your cell phone. The secret is in the radio waves that
the cell phone radiates.
The journalists created a simple microwave structure as shown in the
picture. They called from one cell phone to the other and left both phones on
talking mode. They placed a tape recorder next to phones to imitate sounds of
speaking so the phones would stay on.
After 15 minutes: The egg became slightly warm.
25 minutes: The egg became very warm.
40 minutes: The egg became very hot.
65 minutes: The egg was cooked. (As you can see.)
