Here's how it works: You give your child and a few of his friends some popcorn. Two things happen.
- Popcorn crumbs can be found within a 20-mile radius of where the bowl of popcorn originated.
- Ditto for unpopped kernels.
The Principle of Popcorn is not my first discovery as an amateur (a.k.a. NON-EXISTENT) physicist. I've got patent pending on the Bismarck Principle, which states that however many custard bismarck you purchase at a bakery; that's the amount that will be eaten.
The Bismarck Principle also applies to money. Many of us spend the money we have until it's gone.
I wonder if Albert Einstein or Isaac Asimov had brain tumors.
