Skunk Bear boots up its time machine, microscope and slow motion camera to explore the science and history of popcorn.
the things you learn! I remember playing with popcorn in chem labs in high school, but did not know the intricate details of what popcorn really is—a liquified and instantaneously set starch. makes it so much more awesome, and confirms its status as epic. also confirms my cravings—in the name of science, I’ll take one for the team.
my valentine’s day gift to myself might be nachos. Or tacos. Or, to fit with the holiday, a choco-taco because everything is better with chocolate.
I love this answer to the age old question, “am I 1% nacho?” Unlike other food questions, such as “how many licks to the center of a tootsie pop?” or “how long can I survive on only pizza?” or “what exactly is in this???”, we can call the person/nacho divide breached, and finally rest at ease.
tomorrow, after revealing v day surprises in the real world, i’ll share what I’ve been up to to celebrate this week!
