How often do you make sudden, hard braking during taxi?

Mostly after the humour aspect- but would appreciate your reply.

I know you exercise the utmost SA and caution, but conversely, I believe we have some relevant, expertise in watching rampies.

Sometimes, they a little crazy, and I'm betting there's an occasional prompt stop.

OMG, did they died?- NO. But I don't believe we want to put grandma down in the aisle either.

I am much relived to know that you have nice following distances and good spacing when taxiing, unlike the 405.

Thanks in advance.

As I think about it- maybe a better question, is how often do you experience sudden, hard braking (more than ideal for standing hosties) when riding airliners other than your own livery?

And, more importantly, how many PSIs are dumped to the brakes on said occasions?

How many PSI are in a popcorn kernel before it pops, on average, roughly,

Don't know, but I would be very dissapointed if it were less than 3000PSI.

Edited:
Wikipediaie:
The internal pressure of the entrapped steam continues to increase until the breaking point of the hull is reached: a pressure of approximately 135 psi (930 kPa) and a temperature of 180 °C (356 °F). The hull thereupon ruptures rapidly and explodes, causing a sudden drop in pressure inside the kernel and a corresponding rapid expansion of the steam, which expands the starch and proteins of the endosperm into airy foam.
At least all the presure is all dumped directly, there's no APopS.
