Speaking of

if you have one and a chocolate bar you can measure the speed of light. Put
the chocolate bar

in the oven for about 20 seconds then measure the distance between

melted chocolate.

ovens work at 2.45 gigahertz
​ ​
so if you double the distance

(to get a full wavelength) and then multiply that by
​ ​
​ ​
you should get 3
,000,000, meters per second.
