Robert Decareau, RIP

Robert Decareau, a man who helped invent the microwave, recently died in Nashaua, New Hampishire. Decareau was 82. The microwave is a great invention which revolutionized food preparation during the 20th Century. Certainly his passing is noteworthy.

Now, the police are using his technology as portable pain rays to induce pain compliance.

"his" technology is not the microwave beam, but the microwave oven - he was a food scientist. if you popped your corn in a pot, you don't have to thank him. but if you pop it in a micro you do.

Thanks for the RIP

I've never read this blog in my life, I stumbled upon it using google. I was searching for more newspaper articles featuring my grandfather (Robert Decareau)'s passing. Thank you for taking the time to post this. It's nice to know that people who didn't know him directly are showing great respect like this. He was a great man. RIP Grandpa. We love you.
