    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    Personally, I hate the smell of microwave popcorn. I hate when people starting popping that crap at work. It goes on for hours.

    Really? Wow. I always thought that was a universal smell that would be plesant and cause one to...well....want to eat some popcorn.

    Obviously, I am mistaken.

    Popcorn is evil, sure it smells nice but it tastes like nothing unless you cover it with a heart stopping amount of butter and then..worst of all..it gets stuck in your teeth.

    Ban it.

    I had a job where the boss banned microwave popcorn. If a newbie broke the rule, he'd be right over to tell them.

    Kinda funny to see the CEO of a multimillion dollar company getting on a 64 year old phone order taker's case about popcorn.

    This guy also had it out for scotch tape, so the popcorn thing isn't so strange I guess.

    Popcorn rocks. You just don't know how to make it.

    I like to take a big pan and put some olive oil in it. Then I put some crushed red pepper, salt and maybe some curry powder or rosemary right into the oil. Then I mix in the popcorn kernels, cover and pop them.

    This way the popcorn is pre-flavored and you don't have to put any butter or additional salt on it at all.

    Aarrghhh.......I'm gonna' have to go make some popcorn, right now, after that missive. I've got everything except the curry powder (which I don't like anyway) but the rest sounds so good.....

    Did we work together?

    My CEO HATED popcorn, and you were in EVEN more trouble if you used the intercom system.
    In those things which we commit to practice we can master, and with mastery we have the freedom to use these skills whenever we desire, without this practice we are slaves to our inability.

    Using the intercom system was almost encouraged. It was a great way to relieve stress during the busy holiday season. I once did a rendition of that Four Season's song, "I love you baby, and if it's quite alright I need you baby..." very loudly and I didn't even get any feedback.

    But no popcorn, or you were in some trouble.

    My wife's been saying the stuff is toxic for years. So of course I eat it.

    She really, really enjoyed being "right" tonight while we watched the 10:00 news.

    Look hard enough, anything can be dangerous. I bet there is some way water could be dangerous, though no reason comes to mind at the moment.

    "panic" only comes from having real expectations
