Popcorn Ball

One tiny town in America is trying to break a big – and yummy – world record.

Hundreds of people in Sac City, Iowa, spent a whole weekend trying to make the biggest-ever ball of popcorn.

The town has held the world record for the biggest popcorn ball twice before, in 1995 and 2004.

Popcorn Ball Recipe

These sweet, crunchy balls of popcorn are easy to make.

You’ll need:

  • 3/4 cup corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup margarine
  • 2 teaspoons cold water
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup marshmallows
  • 5 quarts plain popped popcorn

First, combine the corn syrup, margarine, water, sugar and marshmallows in a saucepan over medium heat and stir until the mixture comes to a boil.

Second, combine the hot mixture with the popcorn, making sure that you coat each and every kernel.

Third, grease your hands with some vegetable oil and quickly shape the coated popcorn into balls before it cools.

Finally, wrap the balls with plastic wrap and store them at room temperature.

I also think a case of prey defending itself is ok, but not continuous hunting of that animal. For example, if something is competing with humans, I think it's ok to kill it, because that's what happens in nature, unless we are continuously hunting them. You realize this is just an appeal to nature right?

I think torturing isn't justified, no matter the situation. Even if these people torture others, by torturing them we are as bad as them, we are lowering ourselves down to their level. There are better ways to deal with people and they should be used.
