Watch popcorn burst from corn on the cob in the microwave

I never knew that popcorn could be made by placing a full cob of popping corn in the microwave. Now that I know, I must try this. I also learned from this video that popcorn is made from special popping kernels that have a stronger shell than regular corn. I thought Jiffy-Pop popcorn was the most exciting method of making popcorn until now.  I love watching the cob transform.

From Youtube:

I always thought that popcorn was made from regular corn, but it turns out I was totally wrong. To make  popcorn, the kernels need to have much stronger shells, and a completely different type of corn is used. To pop it, it's the same as regular popcorn, and all I have to do is put the whole cob in the microwave.
