Popcorn
« on: January 04, 2018, 03:29:19 PM »
I've been a popcorn freak since I was born, I think. About 20 years ago I was working in Amish country Ohio and became a fan of Lady Finger popcorn. I usually made it on my Whirly Pop machine. I saw on Amazon that one could get a microwave butter version, so I bought a box of 10. Well, it is by far, the best popcorn ever. I can't  make it any better. If you like popcorn,  you deserve to try Lady Finger.

I like popcorn, but I can't eat popcorn. I have a "divit" deep in the back of my throat where hulls get stuck. No amount of coughing, or drinking or eating seems to remove them. I usually end up with a severe soar throat before they come lose, or a visit to the Dr. I can eat Carmel corn though.
Just call me the midget doctor.

I love popcorn. I like the thin shells and tenderness of the strawberry popcorn that I grow. It is easy to grow and for some reason the coons don't touch it.

That's a nice video.  I'm going to share that with the grandchildren.

Lady Finger popcorn is the smallest hull-less popcorn and has a very nutty flavor.

   I need some engineering assistance from some of our experts here. I always figured we should be able to put out popcorn in the bird feeders and such where chipmunks, squirrels and unwanted bird species are a problem (Probably too much to expect it to work with bears). When the vermin eats a bait of popcorn we just zap him with a microwave gun, the corn in his crop or belly blows up removing our pest problem. Environmentally friendly with no harmful residue.

   If you have the knowledge of how to make such a microwave gun please send it to me and I'll go ahead and patent the design and application and if it makes any money I'll send you some of it.

   I'm betting Kbeitz has everything we need in his junkyard and probably may be my best source. I probably should just go ahead and partner with him up front. :D

If you can put enough energy into the system to pop the popcorn, everything else is going to pop anyway.

Dave,

   Are you trying to be a party popper pooper? :D

   Oh well, other geniuses were ridiculed too.
