Another Question of the Day

To avoid "popcorn lung" you pop popcorn the old fashion way, in a big ol' pan on the stove, with oil and a handful of kernels. If you pop said kernels in corn oil, is it suicide, homicide, or genocide?

Wouldn't that be fratricide? And are the kernels being sacrificed or martyred? ;-)

Surely it can't be kosher!

Suicide either way since I eat enough of it to kill me.

Did you read about the lawsuit with the guy that worked in a butter flavor manufacturing plant that contracted a lung disease because he inhaled the butter flavoring dust on a constant basis? That is a plant very near here. Only in the Ozarks!
I thought it was a crock tho until I found it was a very real problem.

Oh wow. That is way too much thinking for a Friday afternoon. I think it's suicide based on the fact that it's popcorn and oil. I don't know. We're all going to die anyway.

Michele sent me today. I popped in behind you on the M&G. Hope you're having a great day!

Yeah, gotta go with fratricide. Although corn cannibalism came to mind too.
