    Does the person at 0.28 remind you of someone...? Maybe like the guy that auditioned to the voice last year? I believe it is season 14... that guy from Hawaii. Tell me if I’m crazy.

    the fact that some people didn’t even know how to simply shuck some sweet corn makes me so sad. when i hear the sound of shucking it just reminds me of my childhood going out to my grandmas sweet corn field grabbing some corn and then spending a half an hour shucking just to get the good tasting corn.

    Some of it is digestible if soft enough &chew well I think. Corn is delicious. 1 of my fave veggies if not my fave actually like Boston markets used to be the best 1st time restaurant appeared in my town near where I live and their corn bread. Not as good as used to be just like many places after a while or new of 1st month. They still OK. Panera is sometimes good still for most items or sandwiches .

    Since corn doesn't digest, if you only eat corn and poop it out, you can eat it again and you'll have an endless amount of food source.

    I used to work at a stand at the state fair. I learned for two years how to grill, shuck, and dip (in butter) corn. It took me less than 60 seconds to deliver it after it’s taken off the grill. My method is to pull the shuck off 1/3rd at a time, then pull the remains off completely. I used a ‘shucker’ which looks kind of like a razor and I put that into a small tray.
