I had the pleasure of making popcorn in my kitchen for a
large group of unreasonably demanding little girls.
I in fact had no experience making popcorn, its always
been one of those things that you know you just think oh i
can do that.
The process that I originated was not the most efficient,
more popcorn reached the floor in my kitchen than I was
able to hand out.
In fact my experience was largely one of popcorn fury that
I was forced to conceal so as not to spoil the pleasant
popcorn and a movie for kids atmosphere.
Amid the internalized anger and external chaos I
discovered something about myself and popcorn.
I learned that when situations go off the rails I become
more attentive and observant. I discovered that popcorn is
quite nice to walk on with bare feet, actually its a rather
soothing experience that deactivated my temper quickly.
I propose constructing a room engineered to keep a
consistent layer of warm freshly popped pop corn covering
the entire floor surface area of said room.
The purpose of the popcorn would be for soothing nerves
when walked on. I propose that anyone with an anger
management problem be required by the state to install
such a system in one room of their home or that an
emergency type pop up makeshift version or kit be
supplied to them.
A long trough would line one wall with a heating element
at the bottom a mechanical dispenser would release a line
of corn kernels from a corn oil and corn kernel filled
retainer trough above. The gate will slide open the kernels
will drop down almost instantly pop pushing the previous
line of popped corn away from the popping trough. The
whole system will be low profile and somewhat concealed.
