Today, I had to explain to my father why it isn't a good idea to shove a metal knife into the toaster when trying to get at a small piece of toast. This man is 45-years-old and has a PhD. FML
Ljiljka tells us more :
Hey there, OP here! For those of you asking, he has a PhD in biology. He's done crazier and much more dangerous things than this, trust me. If you guys have any other questions, feel free to ask!

how is that relevant? you can assume the OP is younger than that by at least 15 years, probably more. However there's really no need to know.

because if he's young, he may not understand how the world works, sometimes we do stupid stuff because its much easier than doing it safely, risk/reward

Oh wait, you're defending the father? No. I get what you mean but I'm sure that's what a lot of people say until they get electrocuted, run over,'s best to be safe. It's not exactly hard to turn the toaster off or get some tongs or something.

if the toaster already popped you can shove whatever you want in there - my opinion as a mechanical (mechatronics) engineer. there is no current going through the coils so you're fine. OP is a retard.

What a shocking thing for a man of his years to do. That's really a crummy idea. Butter be careful that he doesn't hurt himself, OP!

My Dad also has a PhD and once tried to put milk in a soda stream because he thought it would make a milkshake. Suffice to say, the results were not what he was expecting. Maybe we should introduce our Dads...

You're right there. The look on his face when he tasted it was quite something. The thing is, despite that incident, he's a very intelligent guy (he's a biochemist / neonatal scientist) He just sucks at preparing cold beverages. :)
