    Sure enough, the site's Webmaster, one Charles Ivermee of Southampton, U.K., stepped forward to acknowledge authorship of the article and confirm that its content was purely satirical, not factual. "It was 6 years ago," Ivermee told Gelf Magazine, "but I seem to recall that there was a lot of concern about people's brains getting fried and being from a radio/electronics background I found it all rather silly. So I thought I'd add to the silliness." He expressed bewilderment at how seriously people seemed to be taking it. One British exam study site, he said, had republished the information without even attempting to verify it.

    I still think your title may one day result in a "he who laughs last" scenario.... yes, not many of us are naive enough to realise you can cook eggs or pop corn with a cellphone but we are yet to have conclusive proof of the long term effects either way....

    So although we can accept the satire in this case, I for one am quite happy that we have some "hysterical" people out there who are making a fuss, doing research and getting answers...

    I must say that you are right. We need people who are willing to do the research etc.

    But what I don't agree with are those who, not having the formal training to understand the facts, simply hear a few rumours and create hysteria

    If a cellular phone is enough to cause brain damage, what is a microwave capable of?
