    He ate 2 bags a day per 10 years = 7,300 bags.

    As for me i have 1 bag of microwave popcorn ever 4 - 5 months = 2 per year.

    Now you know why he has popcorn lung.

    It is not only the ability to sue over anything, but the jury awards which are completely out of line.

    If the popcorn had killed the man it would not have been worth millions of dollars, because he would never have earned that amount during the rest of his life, so his death was not depriving his family of that much money.

    There was a time when awards were based on the monitory value of what was lost, such as if a person was killed, the amount they would have earned during the rest of their lifetime was taken into consideration when making a dollar award, not some pie in the sky award.
