So, I wanted to make an experiment, to produce plasma, and indeed I succeeded. This is the recipy: Take a bowl (APPROPRIATE FOR MICROWAVE OVENS) made of transparent glass. Place it upside down in front of opened microwave oven, so you don't have to waste time flipping it upside-down. Set a toothpick on fire, and let it burn for a few seconds, till it starts turning red. Then, place it inside the oven as fast as it is possible, and put the bowl on the toothpick. Start the oven on maximum power as fast as it is possible. (these steps can require some practice, also remember that the bowl can get very hot in the process) WARNING: I CANNOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR EXPERIMENTS AND THEIR RESULTS. THINK BEFORE YOU EXPERIMENT, THANK YOU. Those are the pics: And here you have the movie: http://video.tinypic.com/player.php?v=2mn15yf Enjoy.
