Pro-Trump scam PAC operator pleads guilty to wire fraud

...A man behind a pro-Trump scam PAC has pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud after being accused of bilking hundreds of thousands of dollars from donors, court filings released Monday show....

And that is just today's headline. How often have we seen similar headlines?

So, I gotta ask, was the Trump administration just a scam to transfer money to fmr Pres Trump?

(I know. I know. But someone had to ask it...)

The Microwave Oven Was Invented by Accident by a Man Who was Orphaned and Never Finished Grammar School

...Fast-forward to 1939 where Spencer, now one of the world's leading experts in radar tube design, was working at Raytheon as the head of the power tube division. Largely due to his reputation and expertise, Spencer managed to help Raytheon win a government contract to develop and produce combat radar equipment for M.I.T.'s Radiation Laboratory. This was of huge importance to the Allies and became the military's second highest priority project during WWII, behind the Manhattan Project. It also saw Spencer's staff rise from 15 employees to 5000 over the course of the next few years.

One day, while Spencer was working on building magnetrons for radar sets, he was standing in front of an active radar set when he noticed the candy bar he had in his pocket melted. Spencer wasn't the first to notice something like this with radars, but he was the first to investigate it. He and some other colleagues then began trying to heat other food objects to see if a similar heating effect could be observed. The first one they heated intentionally was popcorn kernels, which became the world's first microwaved popcorn. Spencer then decided to try to heat an egg. He got a kettle and cut a hole in the side, then put the whole egg in the kettle and positioned the magnetron to direct the microwaves into the hole. The result was that the egg exploding in the face of one of his co-workers, who was looking in the kettle as the egg exploded.

Spencer then created what we might call the first true microwave oven by attaching a high density electromagnetic field generator to an enclosed metal box. ...

I don't need a gun to speak, dumb@ss. You probably do because you're a damn coward.
