The state of Alaska, Legos, Barbie, the laser and now the ubiquitous bubble wrap. All of them, like me, have turned 50 over the last year. OK, technically, I’m almost a year older than the last two, but I’ve still got a couple of months until I’m 51, so I’m calling it even.

Although bubble wrap’s primary use is to protect fragile items during shipping, it may be known for another: Many people feel compelled to pop the stuff whenever it’s near. It’s almost like a natural instinct. Some people pop the plastic cells one at a time, others grab a handful and explode a bunch all at once. Me, I like to roll up a sheet and twist it like I’m wringing out a damp washcloth causing a satisfying machine gun-like effect.
