[About a new study from the University of Florida] It proves that you can indeed kill almost every hint of bacteria on your average rancid germ-filled household sponge by simply nuking it for two full minutes - which will, if you try it, turn your sponge into a smoking smoldering extraterrestrial WMD device you cannot touch for about an hour lest you scald your fingertips and wonder what the hell a basic household sponge is made of that it doesn’t actually catch fire or liquefy after two minutes in a microwave. But hey, at least everything’s dead.

Sheen is the perfect energetic match to what we see and feel all around us right now. He’s a spectacularly fractured mirror reflecting the grotesque system that birthed him – smart, funny, wasted, hugely overpaid, egomaniacal, sexy, violently unhealthy, perverted, overamped, creepy, unhinged, lacking all center, moral compass spinning like a Catharine wheel, entirely unable and unwilling to take a deeper look at root causes. Ain’t that America.

All from Amazon! Because evil!
