What happens if you microwave metal?

When you put metal in the microwave, the metal has so many electrons that will get pulled by the microwaves which causes a thin sheet of metal to heat up so quickly that it could burn the appliance. When the piece of metal is crunched up, it can create areas of concentration of these rowdy electrons.
