The other week I published a list on this website, BuzzFeed.com, called 25 Things Americans Do In Movies That Make No Sense To Everyone Around The World.
There was one item on the list in particular that stirred the pot and genuinely surprised people who weren't American.
And I am here to say, yes, it's true. Many Americans do *that thing.*
It's a thing that is genuinely surprising to the general non-American public.
But you know what, I'm sick of apologizing for microwaving my water. I've had enough.
Yes, sorry, I don't have a kettle. Sue me!
OK, but you guys put beans on toast.
I'm sorry, but I think salad cream is the worst thing I have ever heard of.
I prefer "creature."
So yes, it's a thing. Americans do microwave water. Not all of them (some use the stove), but I would say most.
Now please vote in this poll:

Looks like we are having a problem on the server.
Is it okay to microwave water?
