This ought to be huge news at the Popcorn Festival of Clay County!!

Unpopped kernels of popcorn make me sad.

I hear that new "Pope Secret" stuff is pretty good, though.

/heh, daily show

I love my popcorn!
 
2005-04-21 08:54:42 AM
the rock-hard, jaw-rattling unpopped kernels known as old maids.

"Old maids" huh? I always called 'em "unpopped kernels".
 
2005-04-21 09:02:36 AM
the half popped kernels are the best

Ahhh, modern science, working around the clock to improve our lives...

"Double Chocolate Popcorn Balls"

Probably tasty, but reminds me of poop.

Don't these scientists realize that some other scientists discovered this only weeks ago?
 
2005-04-21 11:22:39 AM
But have they solved the cure for idiots who leave popcorn in the microwave too long, letting it burn and stink up the whole office?

Not like I've ever done that...

(Whistles; walks away)

I submitted this with a better headline.....
 
2005-04-21 11:25:32 AM
That may be so. But I have noticed when I cook my pop-corn to just slightly burn (I have a burnt pop-corn fetish), that almost all the kernels pop. Maybe only 5 or 6 remain unpoped. Science fails again.

"...and will appear in the July 11 edition of the journal BioMacromolecules."

F*ckin' eh - the last issue had an awesome ten-page spread-out centrefold. Corn exploded - and so did my jism.

The Fark, she is sucking now. The only thing worse than the constant crashing is the constant repeats. I'm so close to getting back to work.

Good article in the latest Discover magazine about how popcorn is bought on weight and sold on volume, so popcorn companies are trying different way to mke the flakes(popped kernels) as big as possible to create more volume and charge more for the volume.

They have also bred out the natural flavor because it conflicts with the unnatural flavor additives..

I never really thought about it before...when I did I thought "the hulls probably have holes in them so the pressure can't build up". It's hard work...really hard..

\shoulda been a scientist...

This sounds like a science fair project I did in elementary school.
 
2005-04-21 11:42:26 AM
Just when I thought the threads couldn't be any lamer.
Thanks for proving me wrong.

Scientists seek to end the carnage caused by unpopped kernels

2005-04-15 12:16:31 PM DIabloRojo

For a minute there, I thought that SCO had hired some hit men to take out Linus..
So you had a kernel panic?

Everyone forgot the /still no cure for cancer.
Or is that too old/obvious now?
/still no cure for cancer

I'd like to personally thank the submitter for not including "still no cure for cancer" in that headline.

Still no cure for cancer

Good job on the headline!
 
2005-04-21 11:48:13 AM
Two boys were sitting on a log. One's name was Pete, and the other, Re-Pete. Pete fell off. Who was left?

This headline.

That headline and Orville's picture there made me think this was going to be a scat thread.
/Yikes!

Repeats can be a good thing, for those of us who missed the article the first 47 times.

And by "missed", I mean "Didn't read it because it didn't look interesting, and only stopped in this thread to see the creative "Repeat" posts and add my own inane comment regarding repeats."

Mission Accomplished!

More importantly, did anyone notice that today's Fark Personals girl -- "hellopussy" -- was yesterday's The Onion Personal girl?

Freaky. This girl's pussy really gets around.

Enough Yahoo news. Can't we get some variety?
 
2005-04-21 11:58:55 AM
Shouldn't've we been calling it a trifarkta?
 
2005-04-21 11:59:58 AM
how on earth are we going to turn this into a flame war? we're so very far from that right now. let's get cracking folks...

all people that posted about their popcorn preferences (unpopped halfpopped etc) are southern corn-lovin' redneck sister marriers that hate it when people say Country sucks.. all the people that worked on fixing that sentence are lock-jawed aristocratic punk mamasboys that listen to Moby and that couldn't get a girls phone number or change an oil filter. i read this on interweb. discuss

are you a nazi, or french, or french-canadian?

Clavis:

Not that freaky. Fark Personals and the Onion Personals are run by the same company (Spring Street Networks) and share the same profile database.

Personally, I'm waiting for scientists to genetically engineer popcorn to grow and pop either without the damn 'husks' or at least have them dissolve in saliva.
