Can Your Microwave Do This?

Microwave ovens are indispensable for the modern hurry-up lifestyle. But did you know that you can also use microwave ovens to convert garbage to useful fuel?
With 50 cents' worth of electricity for the large microwave he [Pringle] has fabricated, he turns a single 14-inch car tire, one small piece at a time, into 1.2 gallons of diesel fuel, 7.5 pounds of carbon black, 50 cubic feet of combustible gas and two pounds of high-strength steel. Source

Or did you know that microwaves can beam solar energy from Earth orbit to ground antennas to provide 24 hour solar power?
The energy captured by space-based photovoltaic arrays would be converted into microwaves for transmission to Earth, where it would be transformed into direct-current electricity. source

Did you know that microwaves can cure cancer?
In the latest clinical trial, fifteen patients received two microwave heat treatments, known as thermotherapy, along with four rounds of chemotherapy before surgery. The goal was to shrink tumors sufficiently to enable a breast-conserving lumpectomy procedure instead of the expected, and more invasive, mastectomy. Surgeons concluded that fourteen of the tumors shrunk enough for this to be possible. source

Microwaves can also reach out to your automobile and shut down its electronics, cold.
Eureka Aerospace have managed to find a way to focus microwave energy and direct it at a moving target, disrupting the electronic impulses in the car’s electronic control unit (ECU) and in some cases even burning out these circuits. source

Microwaves can be used to control riots.
Booen points to many potentials for such technology, such as defusing a terrorist attack in a crowded marketplace. Instead of firing traditional weapons at the target, he said, directed energy could achieve two key goals: neutralizing the enemy and eliminating collateral damage among innocent bystanders.

For the B.H. crowd--you know, Black Helicopter, Bush Hitler, etc--there is the mind control microwave device.

Microwaves provide vital terrestrial and extraterrestrial communications links. Radar uses microwave frequencies. Microwaves are used in semiconductor processing. Microwaves are used for some types of biomedical imaging.

The trick is in finding the right frequency for the proper use.
Key to GRC’s process is a machine that uses 1200 different frequencies within the microwave range, which act on specific hydrocarbon materials. As the material is zapped at the appropriate wavelength, part of the hydrocarbons that make up the plastic and rubber in the material are broken down into diesel oil and combustible gas.

Would you be surprised if microwaves have some tricks yet to pull out of the hat? Nor would I.
