https://www.nzz.ch/international/deutsches-umweltministerium-schweiz-soll-akw-stilllegen-ld.1515693

Das Eidgenössische Departement für Umwelt, Verkehr, Energie und Kommunikation teilte auf Anfrage mit, man habe den Brief des deutschen Umweltministeriums zur Kenntnis genommen. Die Schweizer Energiepolitik werde aber von zwei Volksabstimmungen gestützt: Im Jahr 2016 lehnten die Schweizer die Atomausstiegsinitiative ab und nahmen ein Jahr später die sogenannte Energiestrategie 2050 an, die kein Abschaltdatum für die Kernkraftwerke vorsieht.


TLDR: German SPD politician complains about Nuclear energy, complains about not beeing regarded in Swiss decision for energy planning. Ignoring two seperate popular votes and basically intervening in internal politics as determined by their own meassurements.
Ironic due to the German decision on Nuclear energy having endangered swiss supply without regard for swiss populations.

Zur Kenntnis genommen / Or to be aware off is generally the statement swiss burecracy gives if they have recived something like this and just thrown it in the rubbish.

One would think we are a Reichskommisariat it seems in the mind of the german state

Why would you do something as stupid as that, storing food in the microwave and having a dog running around....
That just begs for something like this to happen.

We've put food in the microwave to store loads of times - specifically because we have a dog (which is also a husky). Got some meat that's not cold enough for the fridge yet you want to keep it out of the dog's reach - microwave. Just made a sandwich and don't want it stolen when you leave the room - microwave.

Thankfully ours hasn't worked out how to open it and it is only short term storage not long term.


Also, even with nothing inside, microwaves can build up a lot of heat if left running with nothing inside.



That all said - I'm not surprised a bored husky got itself in trouble. They are inquisitive canines!

It is more efficient when a tool can serve multiple purposes such as a container AND a heating device.

Ignorant heretek, breadboxes are made according to STC templates at the nearest Forge World and appropriately blessed by the Omnissiah. Note that the machine spirits seem to dislike croissants, causing a cascade failure of the bread stabilizer resulting in the irradiation of nearby personnel. For safety reasons, store any butter at least one meter from the breadbox. Conduct the necessary Rites of Crumbling Evacuation regularly to avoid any risk of fire or vermin that might defile the holy breadbox.
