It's Sunday, and let's have some pop corn !

We are sunday, and here is a topic which have no relation at all with Disney! But wait, don't go away, as it will interest all of you!

We all have heard of this big debate: are cellphones radiations dangerous for the human body, especially the brain? Me, personally, i do think these radiations are real and potentially dangerous, but to check this, let's have a look to what is happening when some pop corn is surrounded by four mobile phones ringing at the same time...

Even if you are in Japan, it still works!

Now, other people tried with five mobile phones instead of four...and, well, as you will see on the video below, something went terribly wrong...

But what happen when you do the contrary - a mobile surrounded by pop corn? These guys tried with an IPhone and if you do own an IPhone, may be you should not try it! Look why.

So, what do you think, are all these videos fake or true? Some believe that cellphone radiations are reflected by the starch and protein polymers in popcorn...May be it's the answer but in the meantime, next time you'll buy a cellphone it can be a good idea to check its SAR - Specific Absorption Rate - which is a measure of the rate at which radio frequency (RF) energy is absorbed by the body when exposed to radio-frequency electromagnetic field. Here is a web page where you will find all the SAR ( DAS in french ) for all cellphones. Of course, the lower SAR is the better ( a SAR of 0,15 is less potentially "dangerous" than a 1,20 SAR )

And here is a video which answer to the question: What happens when you put a mobile phone inside a micro-wave? Don't try it at home!

And if you want to see what seems to be the trick and how these pop corn videos were done , you can see it HERE
But, WARNING! Do NOT try to do it at home as it is explained in the video, it is EXTREMELY dangerous!!!

These videos are fake and about 15 seconds on Google would tell you that. Cellphone radiation is not strong enough to have these effects.

Well, they're is indeed a big probabilty that they're fake, but, just like one of the characters in john Ford's "The man who shot Libery Valance" say "between reality and legend, print the legend!", i choose to "print" the legend!
