... FOR SCIENCE!!! XD

Today I have discovered that one can, with the careful application of microwave energy, make popcorn in a jar!

In discussing with [livejournal.com profile] gipsieee the hazards of commercially available microwave popcorn, the thought popped into my mind that, "Hey, it's just popcorn in some butter/oil/salt concoction that you microwave for about two minutes. I can do that!"

And I was right! The initial batch came out a little burned because I left it in an extra minute in a vain attempt to get better pop percentage. However, the second batch is delicious and has a reasonably (for microwave popcorn) satisfactory popped/unpopped ratio. Here's how it works )

This makes me ridiculously gleeful. Not primarily because of the actual parties involved, but at the more abstract level: a politician is now being thwarted by legislation that he supported.

Full disclosure: I am enjoying it more, I think, because it was a piece of legislation that I feel is ill-conceived.
