Fascinating stuff… It’s funny how many people have this as a pet peeve though. Many (including my wife) are bothered when someone doesn’t clear the microwave display/return it to the clock function.

Personally, I could care less what it says on the microwave.

I rarely use the company microwave [on the off chance, I might pop some popcorn … here’s a tangent: Is it true people consume more microwave popcorn at work than they do at home? And is it also true that popcorn consumption at work goes up when someone smells a freshly nuked bag?] … but I always clear the display at home.

And I thought my wife was a little strange… She’s just a neat-nik of sorts.

Moose’s work has this gross double butter popcorn. There’s so much butter on the popcorn that it’s soggy.

If Moose’s wife is correct about the microwave being dangerous, I should have gotten one of those beanies as a child. It might have saved some braincells.

Our first microwave wasn’t even a microwave, it was a Radarange! Talk about creepy! There wasn’t any such thing as microwave popcorn back then. We made our own by putting popcorn kernels in brown paper lunch bags!

As far as double – butter popcorn goes, GROSS! Even the “lite” popcorn has enough buttery goodness on it to satisfy. Why anyone would want double butter is beyond my comprehension!

My father actually pops a bag of normal microwave popcorn, then melts actual butter and pours it on top. After that, he adds more salt to the mix. Yikes!!!

I’m not sure how he has survived this long…

If he doesn’t know about it already Mark, tell your father there is a great product on the market called “Popcorn Salt”. Morton Salt makes a nice one. It’s superfine and adheres to the kernels better than table salt. Now, as far as the butter goes …

Sounds good to me, but he is a salt-a-holic. If it were up to him, he would probably use rock salt as hard candy. Gross, I know…

And while we’re on the subject of microwaves and popcorn… a lady I used to work with once left a bag of popcorn in the microwave unattended. It burned pretty bad and set off the fire alarms.

The entire 10+ story office building had to be evacuated and the fire department showed up.
