       A back door to the microwave would also enable hilarious pranks like stealing someone’s lunch while they’re heating it up. On the downside, how will the microwave know how to orient the handle of a mug on the turntable if it doesn’t know which door will be opened?

       Strange, I had to look up “island bench” because I didn’t know what it meant. Bench seating in the kitchen? Is that a thing now?

       Its very interesting how many different words there are for the fixed waist level horizontal surfaces in a kitchen. Bench, Worktop, Counter, Counter-top, Side. Any others here?

       I’d only call it an island if there was floor space all the way around it, rather than one or more sides being along the wall. Do people really call the work surface itself a “bench”? When I looked up “island bench” I found furniture to place next to that island - not the island itself.   

       As ripe for confusion as “first floor” and “ground floor.”

       Kitchen design uses a lot of geography terms. There's "kitchen island", "peninsula bench"... OK that's all I've got. Carry on!

       //As ripe for confusion as “first floor” and “ground floor.”//   

       That often fooled me in my first few years in Australia. I'd see an office was on the 3rd floor so I'd think "Don't be a lazy ass and just walk up the stairs instead of waiting for the elevator." Then, to my horror, I'd find myself walking up FOUR sets of stairs.

       Four sets of stairs would take you to fourth floor: zero-based arrays here, because our home is girt by C.
pertinax, Nov 11 2021
  

       Maybe the stairs started in the basement.
pocmloc, Nov 11 2021
  

       Also depends on whether a 'set' of stairs takes you an integer number of floors in height, and on whether the floor numbers themselves are integers...

       //how will the microwave know how to orient the handle of a mug on the turntable if it doesn’t know which door will be opened?//   

       Presumably there will be an interlock so that as one of the handles is pulled, the turntable rotates so that the mug handle points towards the door which that handle operates.

       Clueless. You know you miss a day or two and suddenly everyone is talking mush. Clueless.

       Snack desert :(

       Are you OK, [blissmiss]?
pertinax, Nov 12 2021
  

       //mug handle points towards the door//   

       Or just warm up two mugs of coffee; ex hypothesi the kitchen is busy, so someone is bound to want the other one.
pertinax, Nov 12 2021
  

       Two handled mugs. (4 handles even)
AusCan531, Nov 12 2021
  

       [pertinax], why, am I supposed to be?
blissmiss, Nov 13 2021
  

       If we exposed that we supposed so, then would we be imposing, and would you be opposed to that?
pertinax, Nov 13 2021
  

       Clueless. You know you miss a day or two and suddenly everyone is talking mush. Clueless.   

       Part two.
blissmiss, Nov 14 2021
  

       I'm not sure what this game is, but I think you won. I'm off to bed, so I can talk more mush in the morning.
pertinax, Nov 15 2021
  

       I was quite proud of that mush.
Loris, Nov 15 2021
  

       Mush ado about nothing. (New HB Slogan?)

       I've been foggy lately. Please forgive me if I put the blame on any of you for my not understanding, or being too lazy to Google. Isn't ridiculous to see that as actually a bother, or that it seems to be a massive task to look something up?
blissmiss, Nov 21 2021
  

       Foggy is fine. Unless you're a weather forecast. But otherwise it's fine.
pertinax, Nov 21 2021
  

       I'm not sure looking things up on Google would be much help with understanding obscure ideas on the Halfbakery. It might even make things worse.
pocmloc, Nov 21 2021
  

       //It might even make things worse//
Yeah, I've been there (not from an hb idea, however...).
1: I read/see something I don't get
2: Google
3: Now I'm even more confused!
