    What`s weird is that it popped up in the air a fair bit before the explosiony part seemed to actually happen. I wonder how it did that.

    I think what sent it flying was the oil popping. You know how if you put just about anything on oil it will cause it to start boiling when it`s hot enough.

    That still doesn`t explain why it takes a second afterwards for the corn itself to pop... Maybe the fact that once it`s in the air it`s not in direct contact with a heat source, so it...

    I dunno... F*CKIN` POPCORN, HOW DOES IT WORK?!

    The steam escaping is what launched it up, The crack in the hull then spreads and then the germ and endosperm explode outwards peeling back toward the tip cap.

    I`m sorry, did you mean to type `I`m 37-years-old and I have been using the internet for 20 years. I was also taught English in school. Maybe you should grow up and use proper grammar and spelling. You wouldnt fill a job application out like that. Grow up.`?

    Capitalization. Use it before you preach about spelling and grammar on the internet. Also, avoid using ellipsis if they don`t drating mean anything.
    Thank you.

    Abbreviation: Use it before you preach about spelling and gramer on the internet. Apostophy - "wouldnt fill a job..." is more correctly written "wouldn`t fill OUT a job...". And of course an ellipsis is a pause and therefore does not require meaning. It is often used for dramatic purposes or cadence. Thank you.

    Anyone have an explanation as to why the popcorn jumps into the air before it even pops? I`m guessing the mass inside the shell applies a force to the shell itself in such a way that it has enough inertia to defy gravity for a split second.

    I love popcorn. Its one of my favorite snacks. I bet I eat a box of popcorn every week. Nothing better than watching a tv show and having a big ole bowl of popcorn in your lap. Extra butterery goodness of the gods.

    Somebody once told me that a light sprinkling of pickle juice on popcorn was really good. Never tried it, wondered if anybody here had.
