    My eldordo was popping corn yesterday following the car wash

    As I drove home from the car wash I heard a sound very similar to corn popping coming from under or outside the car. It was loud enough to first make it sound like it might be coming through the speakers. Might it have been droplets of water splashing against something tin under the car. It didn't do it today.

    There was a temporary meteor show in which said meteors made it to the surface instead of burning up in the atmosphere..

    There's nothing tin under the car, and nothing that I can think of that would make a popcorn popping sound. Did you drive over any gravel?

    In the rear wheel wells, in front of the wheels, there are some metal ridges that like to collect gravel (I have a gravel driveway). Sometimes it'll hang out there for a while, and then when the car's been in motion for a bit, it'll kick out and give a series of bangs as it hits the underbody.

    Used to freak the hell out of me until I realized what it was.

    Does the popcorn have cheese on it? Can I have some?
