    It's not dangerous at all

    all that is happening is you are super heating the grape and it became plasma (Not sure about this but i think it could cause cancer)

    i'm glad someone here actually knows what itis... definitely a toxic gas lol

    that microwave pic is from wikipedia ... i used it somewhere before but i can't remember. lol

    yeah really you are a cannable


    will this work with any other foods?

    put the grapes in an upside-down glass and it will catch the plasma. use a clear glass glass

    try putting a match under a glass in a microwave... fun but very un-safe.

    same thing here cept its alot cooler and will explode.

    how about a whole book of matches?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    Sounds alot more fun =P

    OR how bout one of those boxes of 250 matches all in at once =P

    dont try that and if you do it wasnt my idea.

    only 250, I have like 5 boxes of 500 in my closet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

    Thats pretty cool, but 2500 is nothing compared to the 4000 that my friend and i couldve used before =P

    instead we make explosives out of them, and i blew up my hand and had to waste a saturday at the hospital =(

    I blew a lighter in my hand and spent the rest of the day watching AVP while light headed from loss of blood and the sight of a blown up hand.

    wow, that cant be any fun,

    only my fingers were hit, so i didnt really have to deal with much of a sight but wow, it hurt alot.

    some things just don't work, especially when it said not to do it on the package

    Now put a glass over the grapes!!!!!!!!
