Which brings up a question:

Could someone swallow several bags of unpopped microwave popcorn, stick themselves either in a big microwave oven or in front of a microwave relay tower, and pop themselves to death? Would "movie style" or "buttery flavor" work better?

This is theoretical, because I'll let someone else try it.

Chimps corner
Popcorn:
There are several commercial classifications of corn. Field corn (also called dent corn or cow corn) is fed to animals. Flour corn is mostly starchy center with a soft hull that allows it to be easily ground into flour. Sweet corn is the kind we eat at the dinner table. Flint corn is usually called Indian corn; its colorful kernels make it highly attractive, and it is used for decoration because it is tough and tasteless. Pod corn is also only used for decoration because each of its kernels has its own separate husk.

Popcorn, also a collection of varieties of Zea mays, is the only corn that pops; it is not dried kernels of sweet corn. There are several popular varieties of popcorn out of thousands of hybrids. White hull-less and yellow hull-less are the varieties sold most commonly and packaged in microwave bags. Rice popcorn is a variety with kernels that are pointed at both ends, and pearl popcorn produces round, compact kernels. Tiny red ears that are shaped like strawberries produce red kernels and are called strawberry popcorn. Black popcorn has black grains but pops as white kernels, and rainbow or calico corn has white, yellow, red, and blue kernels. Popcorn is also classified by the characteristics of its popped kernels, with the largest kernels called "Dynamite" and "Snow Puff."

Such disdain thou hast for me!
Could I not spell Raparree?
Or, if you were making free,
Learn to spell it Rahperree?
And if a Francophile you'd be
I could master Rah-PaRIS!!
But no! You choose to slothful be!
And blame it, what is worse, on me!
Such a blatant villany
Deserves just ole Rapayre to be,
And not the gallant Raparee.
Or so it seems, at least, to me.

MOM, you'll be hearing the pitter patter of roofers working across the street today. Don't let it bother you; if you want to sit outside on this beautiful day go hang out in the back yard on the patio. It's probably time to paint the front porch and put up the storm windows and some of those bug screens.

Ron Burgundy: Discovered by the Germans in 1904, they named it San Diego, which of course in German means a whale's vagina.
Veronica Corningstone: No, there's no way that's correct.
Ron Burgundy: I'm sorry, I was trying to impress you. I don't know what it means. I'll be honest, I don't think anyone knows what it means anymore. Scholars maintain that the translation was lost hundreds of years ago.
Veronica Corningstone: Doesn't it mean Saint Diego?
Ron Burgundy: No. No.
Veronica Corningstone: No, that's - that's what it means. Really.

San Diego (pronounced /ˌsæn diˈeɪgoʊ/), named after Saint Didacus (Spanish: Diego de Alcalá), is the second-largest city in California and the ninth largest city in the United States, located along the Pacific Ocean on the west coast of the United States. The US Census Bureau estimates the city's population at 1,279,329 as of 2008.[1] This coastal city is also the county seat of San Diego County[2] as well as the economic center of the San Diego–Carlsbad–San Marcos metropolitan area.

San Diego, Chile, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, USA USA (California): founded in 1542 as San Miguel and renamed San Diego de Alcalá de Henares 'St James of Alcalá of Henares' in 1602 by the Spanish after St James (d. 44), apostle and martyr, and the patron saint of Spain.

I understood that Diego is Spanish for the original latin/ Greek name Jacob,holds the heel, ( Iacobus, Iakobos, Jacobo, Jaime, Yago) which later morphed into a Hebrew name. Western cultures it often was changed to James, or Jacques.

In 1602, Sebastián Vizcaíno (1548-1624) was sent to map the California coast. He arrived with his flagship "San Diego". Vizcaíno surveyed the harbor and what is now Mission Bay and Point Loma, naming the area for the Spanish Catholic Saint St. Didacus (More commonly known as San Diego).

Dear Sir,

The Spanish form of the name "David" is "David."

From yet another source:

DIEGO: Said to have been derived from Spanish Santiago ("St. James"), but in the Middle Ages Diego existed in the Latin forms Didacus and Didagus, causing some scholars to suspect that Diego may have originally derived from the Greek word didakhe, meaning "doctrine, teaching."

San Diego is a corruption, a blot, and should be "Santiago."

We should have let you spend more time up here on the Node of the Perpetually Unfolding Present before inviting you to dally around down in the Uncharted Labyrinthine Tides of Deep Past BS. It can get really confusing once you cast off from the firm anchor of Now and go drifting about in the endless intermingled backwaters of Then.
