Today in Carter's Math: I learned that by adding 10, I actually subtracted 30

How is this possible you say?

Well, my rice called for 90 seconds. I decided to add 10 more seconds to my microwave and typed in 100.

100 on a microwave is only 60 seconds.

So instead of adding 10 seconds, I subtracted 30.

Use this new found research carefully my fellow MCBers. We might be able to solve our energy crisis with this one... Perpetual motion? Dark Matter? The possibilities are endless!

A loss of time is a loss of energy. A loss of energy not only breaks the law of conservation, it accelerates the heat death of the sun and all stars.

Good job, we're all gonna die now.

I'm more shocked that you nuked rice and got an edible biological fuel.

On some microwaves, if you enter a number larger then 2 digits, it interprets it as minutes, then seconds. So, entering "100" gets translated to "1 minute, 0 seconds", which is 60 seconds, not 100.

You just had to go ahead and ruin his maths. Looks like you'll have to find a different topic for your thesis, Carter.

Oh right, so it popped up as 1:00, not 100. Got it.
