The discovery of popcorn is trivial compared with the discovery of, for example, making bread with yeast.

The use of yeast has probably been around longer than making pop corn - by the way, I have nothing to back that up. Yeast was used at least as far back as biblical history goes, pop corn, according to the article, is thought to have been made as far back as 3,000 to 6,000 years, which almost is the same as "biblical history. Wonder which usage is oldest?

Thanks for the ping, I don't often comment on these threads unless I have a question.
