when i realise that you can save one keypress on a microwave by typing in 90 instead of 130 for one and a half minutes

when i remember that my microwave is one of the ones with a knob instead of a keypad so this cool trick doesn't work for me

in unrelated news i just found out that ffmpeg lets you reverse videos by just applying a video filter called "reverse" so that's cool

people seem to have trouble believing that microwaves with keypads exist so here's an example of one :blobderpy:

and here's an explanation of how it works:

digits fill from the right to the left, so typing in "5" always means five seconds and never five minutes. five minutes is "500".

one minute and thirty seconds is "130", which is interpreted as "1:30". however, typing "60" does not autocorrect to "1:00", it stays as sixty seconds. you can go as high as ninety-nine seconds. thus, you can type in "90" and it'll run for one minute thirty seconds

okay now there are other people who are having trouble believing microwaves *without* keypads exist :derpyupsidedown:

here's one with a knob


look you fools this is PROOF of knob microwaves i personally own one

explaining the revolutionary concept of microwave to standard time conversion

@lynnesbian it literally looks like they tried to take an analog knob microwave (which makes mechanical sense) and lift-and-shift to the digital space

I'm looking forward to cloud-based knob microwaves

@lynnesbian yeah but i'm so oldschool I have a *mechanical knob* without digital shit so I have even less accuracy than you but I can feel like I do
