Anyone know if putting mail in the microwave would kill anthrax? BP

That would be interesting if it worked. The microwave companies can put a new setting on their hardware "Mail" I tried to microwave a fist-ful of dollars one day when I fell into the creek and it burned a nice hole straight down through the bills.

This will work well. You need the revolving pan and it must exceed 170F for six minutes.Spores are hard to kill. cpermd

For the spores, I wonder if they could use one of those devices they use to irradiate fruit? I think it's used to kill bacteria and such. When in doubt, nuke the mail!

Hey, good idea! But then how do you dry the mail afterwards? Should I use the delicate setting or permanent press on my dryer? You could make a box with a UV sterilizer light in it and use that to kill the spores. Just don't look at the light. It will make you sick and f--k your eyes up bad.

Stick it in the fridge to dry it. But what will be wet? cpermd

NBC news reported tonight the possibility of irradiation for U.S. Mails, but cited the downside as the cost of the equipment. Everyone's bitching about 34-cent stamps getting ready to be raised again next year. Before you know it we'll be paying $1.50 to mail a letter just so that we can pay for this shit. Christ Almighty.
