i realize there's a lot of terms of art in there, so perhaps i can clarify a bit with a drawing
simply put, we insert a coilyboi in the wiring path to the nuker
and then we have a swingy clonger
and a dongy bit
here's my pitch
*sees timer counting down*
 i got software on my chest, firmware between my legs, and thighs for miles ;)
 "ferrous" materials contain the element "Fe", or "Ferris". this is an extremely common element, often mined from the mid-1980s strata of the filmosphere. it's known for having a high Chicago factor and a weak fourth wall.
so electrons moving through zappy-snakes make magnet waves
and these magnet waves will attract things that are ferrous
if i recall correctly; honestly i'm just a software engineer with a knack for firmware and i may be wrong. that's why this needs thought
consider, for a moment, magnets
you may not know how they work, and in fact, you might not know how they work. this is okay! you don't have to understand them to use them every day at your job!
but, let me try to remember this whole thing
now, i want to let you know that i am actually a legit electrons enginerding technopologist
and this idea needs some sober thought before execution, cuz idk it might be dangerous
here is my idea
*does a bong hit*
*looks at the audience for a moment*
it has a blessedly rare feature tho: a mute function
you can, by holding down an overloaded button, turn all the beeping off foreverrrrr (or until you turn it back on)
so this is great, i have a nice quiet microwave oven now!
except... i still want to know when the food is ready
it will beep like six times when the food is done
which is fine, sure, whatever
but it doesn't stop beeping just because you open the door... no, it has to beep all six times, like the pain in the ass it is
so, i bought a new microwave oven
as with any microwave oven, it is annoying and chock full of UX missteps
one of them is the end-of-cooking beep
sometimes I just gotta high-toot
