They bang. They bang.

Delicious, puffed rice for sale

Vendors in alleys and street corners work hard for their money

Going deaf every few minutes as the rice pops

Kim Jong-Il loves it

How loud is the explosion? Ridiculously loud. Vendors put these machines in the backs of trucks and puff rice everywhere. You randomly hear explosions all over the place. Check out the big bang here.
