Today, my boyfriend wanted to make breakfast. Since I usually do all the cooking, I said that was fine. Four hours later, my boyfriend and I were sitting on the sidewalk across the street as the firemen sprayed down the burnt remains of our kitchen. FML

I can see it now. He went into the kitchen and thought what is this contraption. I think you turn this knob. O look a small flame. I don't think that will cook the breakfast fast enough. Throws some gasoline on it and Um sweet heart lets just go to ihop.

"Let me just cook this food with a newspaper on the stove next to the burner." And yes I've seen someone start a fire because they had their news paper on the stove reading it while cooking. They just hit the other knob and lit the burner under the newspaper.

People lack common sense and if they normally don't cook or never learned to from someone they can easily burn a house down.

This is frighteningly true. I had a roommate just out of college that couldn't cook except for hamburgers. He never learned to follow a recipe or other basic things of cooking. It was hard to believe and it seems like guys being clueless about basic need to know things is getting worse.

He listened to us and set fire to the spider...what he hasn't anticipated was the amount of damage that the fire would cause... Well, it's not our fault he listened to us...

Oh my god. Seriously, this has to be one of the most intelligence-lacking arguments I've ever had the misfortune to witness. Microwaves use cook food. The waves convert water, sugars, and fats directly into energy in the form of heat. Frozen food is chock full of water; dehydrated food is not. THAT is why ramen noodles won't cook.

42, please remove the word "hockey" from your profile picture before making assinine comments such as your involvement in this entire thread...

Actually, microwaves just vibrate polar molecules (see water for instance) at ridiculous frequencies to produce friction heat in the food. Ramen noodles aren't particularly polar so they won't heat. Put water (polar) on them and you're off to the races.

Is it just me or has the FML community reached new heights of intelligence lately?
If you compare the comments between the ones made in 2008 and now, it's really quite astounding...

"Hi, OP here. Everything I own is now a pile of ashes because my boyfriend failed to microwave instant noodles. We're having his IQ tested at the end of the week, because he said, 'I thought putting it in for longer would make more noodles!'"

At least he only burned the kitchen and not the rest of the home? I'm sorry OP! Maybe that's why they say us women belong in the kitchen, because if we aren't it'll be destroyed :P

61. Everyone is entitled to their opinions, but making one single group the butt of a problem is a joke. All of the 'ism' groups are silly, everyone needs to shut the fuck up and get over themselves. No singular group should ever be held as better than any other. Seriously, people are people. Fuck. Most of what's wrong in the world is caused by people subjegating others based on stupid principles and ideologies. Again, people need to get over their own silly prejudices and shut the fuck up and live.
