    I was bored last night and we had a bag of uncooked popcorn. So I thought what the heck, I'll cook it on the stove. So I googled it and someone recommended to put a lid over it (I figured it was because they would probably jump out of the pot...)

    So I dumped a little bit of cooking oil in there, little bit of kernels, and let it cook...

    Now, the real reason why a lid is necessary...

    That pot is a dangerous weapon. When the kernels were popping, oil was shooting out like a volcano. It was like an call of duty battle field and I have been shot multiple times. I still wanted my popcorn so I had no reason to stop cooking it.

    I survived...

    It sounds like it was very dangerous and kind of painful. Was it the microwavable kind or the actual popcorn that you can cook?

    you put way too much oil if it was splattering around even with a lid on.
