How NOT to microwave butter

Note: This post was written before I realized I was trans and/or before I came out online. As such, I might refer to myself as a man or use my deadname. Please read my name policy to understand how you should refer to me.

Note to self: when melting butter in the microwave to use over popcorn, do NOT set microwave to high.

Butter all over the microwave.

Luckily, our microwave is from 1987 and thus built like a tank. In order to destroy it, you'd actually have to stick a smaller microwave inside it and activate the two simultaneously. This would, of course, tear a hole in the space-time continuum, destroying the universe as well as the microwave. So don't try it.

Here's a close-up of the carnage:
