hello. this is my first instructable. I will show what will happen when a grape is placed in the microwave.

Step 1: Stuff You Need

You need:
1 microwave-safe plate. any will do.
1 grape
1knife

Cut the grape almost in half, so a tiny bit of skin connects the two halfs. place like so.

Step 2: Microwave the Thing

well, you pretty much put the thing in the microwave for 10-15 seconds. as soon as the Grapes blow apart, stop the microwave.














this is a picture VVVVV

Step 3: The After-math

the sparks will eventualy blow apart the Grape halfs. this is what it look lie afterwords. a better description w/ pictures is at http://www.pmichaud.com/grape/
