976-977.

Isn't It Annoying...

...When you find a dissapointingly large number of
unpopped kernels at the bottom of your popcorn container...



... And when you try to eat them anyway, you discover they are
(Ow!) much, much  harder (Ow!) than you expected !!!


***

Did you know:
* It's scientifically proven that the percentage of unpopped popcorn varies from 4% in premium brands to 47% in cheaper brands. Basically you get what you pay for.
* The US alone consumes 14 billion quarts (~13.25 billion liters by volume) of popped popcorn every year.
* At 31 calories per cup of popped popcorn, that's 1.7 Trillion calories consumed in the US.
* If 47% of the kernels did not pop, that would save ~816 Billion calories, which would surely put a dent in the 'obesity epidemic'.
So there you have it folks, buy the cheapest popcorn you can - your waistline will thank you. :)
