Disaster Kitchen: HOW???
Okay. So, this wasn't even any kind of challenging cooking task, or an experiment, or anything involving fire at all and it still went foom.

I put literally a handful of frozen sliced strawberries into a huge microwavable container (they didn't even fill it to 1/4 of the way up the side, it was maybe a quarter of a cup, seriously) and put them into the microwave to thaw and warm up on 'reheat' for a quick breakfast thing. Result?

[Strawberry Volcano.]

Strawberry Volcano.

How?? How does that small amount of frozen strawberries turn into that big of an eruption?? I mean, I should know better than to ever trust a frozen strawberry after the previous kamikaze murder attempts, but seriously! Physics?!? O.o

High liquid content. Things with high liquid content must be nuked with great caution. I didn't learn that the first time either.

I've nuked entire bowls of soup for that long and they never exploded. I guess the energy gets concentrated in a smaller amount?

clearly they're murder-strawberries, planted by the fruit mafia as the start of their bid to take over the world *nods*
You must be a highly desirable target for them to try not-yet-perfected tech!

I've hypothesized before that freezing makes them evil, since fresh strawberries and strawberry jam have never tried to kill me. Yet.
