    i`d think the microwave would ruin the camera, maybe on a hotplate? regardless, I`ve always friggin wondered what exactly happened and now, i know.

    Awesome, I`ve always wanted to see this in slow motion. Pity the camera didn`t catch it from front on... I wanted to see it front on from the point where the kernal splits (and yeah `LazyMe484`... it was still a bit fast for me too).

    Looks different to the popcorn I am used to seeing... the shell looks darker... maybe that is the environment it was filmed in though...

    "AKappy never stops making me laugh with his comments, i hope you becomes a stand up comic..."

    ----

    There`s a huge difference between stand up comedy and typing an amusing sentence on here.

    He IS a pretty funny guy though. :]

    And cute, too!

    " AKappy never stops making me laugh with his comments, i hope you becomes a stand up comic..."


    I dont. He`s not funny at all. It`s just that most of you dont have the imagination to think of anything original at all, so anything that rises from the mire by even a fraction, you see as `hilarious` `neat` . It`s not. Get out more.


    So there.

    didnt you guys see the oil? you dont put oil on a microwave, do ya?
    maybe i wouldnt know, anyway that was pretty cool. seen it tho, not that impressed. i feel like quoting god from family guy, but i dont know his exact words, just look at your circulatory system, do you have any idea how complicated that is? and you wanna stare at some piece of corn.
