Popmaize research...

Stew, I love the name of the institute doing the popcorn (we call it maize) research in the article: Purdue's Whistler Center for Carbohydrate Research. Which suggests to me that this is a bunch of people who spend most of their time wolfing down crisps, chips, biscuits, and other starchy foods. In my imagination I visualise people getting fired from the place simply for going on the Atkins diet.

Hemp and popcorn research? I imagine there were a whole lot of videos and film of kernels exploding in slow motion. I just hope they weren't sniffing butter salt between microwaved batches of the maize.
