EDIT to ask : If a cell phone will do this to popcorn, then what will it do to our brain? :thumbsup:

:thumbsup: Yes if you put 4 cell phones to your two ears and they happen to right all at once.

I does actually make one wonder though.

I think we should try it on Andrew

Well, I'll place my bet that if you put 4 cellphones around Andrews head and ring them all at once, my head will pop :thumbsup:

Cell phones were not possible in the time of Plato either. There is no common sense when it comes to technology when considered in terms of the millenia. Anybody seen Andrew? :thumbsup:

How would they make that popcorn pop though? I think that would be more interesting in itself.
