    Jurors agreed with the claims by Wayne Watson, 59, that the popcorn manufacturer and the supermarket chain that sold it were negligent by failing to warn on labels that the butter flavoring, diacetyl, was dangerous.

    The condition is a form of obstructive lung disease that makes it difficult for air to flow out of the lungs and is irreversible, according to WebMd.

    I can count the number of times I've eaten popcorn in the past 10 years on one hand.

    I can count the number of times I've used imitation butter on less than one finger.

    That prepackaged stuff is poison. Just air pop your own and you can control what you put on it. Love it.

    Yeah but not everyone looks sexy while riding a beach cruiser bike. If popping my own popcorn would make me look like that, I'd trade my crosstrail bike for a cruiser and buy some Orville Redenbacher. icon_razz.gif
