Mar-27-04  waddayaplay: Steinitz is a master at work.
Nov-19-04  aw1988: <waddayaplay> Yes, he is. Except this is a game between Bird and Blackburne. Perhaps Steinitz was watching from the audience, munching on popcorn.
Nov-19-04  Knight13: <wa1988> There are no machines that could make popcorns in the late 1800's.
Nov-19-04  Lawrence: <Popcorn carts were seen on every street always following the crowds after their invention in 1885. These were steam and gas poppers easily pushed through parks, fairs, carnivals, conventions and expositions.>
Jan-14-05  aw1988: Oh, whatever. Munch Munch Munch Munch much much much much butter/salt/junky stuff yumm.
Aug-27-10  Xeroxx: <There are no machines that could make popcorns in the late 1800's.>

Not before they invented the popcorn machine.
