Yahoo!!!!

It's unplugged, taken off it's stand and is now just sitting sadly on the freezer waiting to be hauled out of here!!!

Good ridence you little bastard!!!

Where should I take it?

the shooting range?
a high bridge?
a cliff?
the dump?

or should I just donate it to goodwill so some poor sucker can die of radiation food contamination?

Mine was broken so it got trashed... I'd GW it. I really used mine as an undergrad... but I do wish I knew what I knew now - food tastes better out of the oven!

I would donate it to goodwill if it's still working. Let someone else enjoy it for a cheap price instead of the dump (which doesn't exactly neeed more).

Goodwill sounds like a good idea. But, when I got rid of ours, I freecycled it. I probably got about a dozen requests for it too. I'd rather give it away for free (and have someone pick it up) then have someone actually pay money for it (and have to drive to drop it off at GW).

THat's what I'd do too! There are lots of people who use a microwave as their primary (or even only) method of cooking and to these people a microwave is a wonderful gift!

I'll bet you could find a million college students who would be happy to take it off your hands.
