Getting the Countdown Conundrum or a 9 letter word when no one is there to see it.

People overtaking me on a footpath at 1.0001x my own speed, making no effort to put some distance between us as we stroll shoulder to shoulder for yards upon yards. Also, perfectly functional thr

Currys thinking “Black Fri-Yay” is an acceptable slogan with which to market to adults.

I've never drunk the liquid, its never occurred to me to do that, it's not cereal @Chest Rockwell!

Usually it's the noodles having a lot of liquid on them and then hitting the chin due to hanging off the fork that is the issue. I don't have that problem with something like spaghetti for example as the sauce is thicker and they wind easily and neatly on to a fork. I don't have this issue with anything else.

As if I know how to use chopsticks @Chest Rockwell!!  I am an uncultered heathen and ask for a fork at Japanese resteraunts.

@Merzbow, now you mention it, I do have the same issue with Ramen, I usually use a spoon/fork combo for that.  Obviously the fact it's in a plastic pot is throwing my brain off.

I think they even have a spoon specifically for the ramen (and miso) soup in Japan.

Speaking of noodles and annoyances tho, when British companies bring out a noodle and plaster it with pictures of samurai or dragons and "Konnichiwa-desu this is our finest authentic Japanese street noodle, chopped by ninjas" or some low-key racist shite on the back.

But dont the Noodles all just fall off then? And surely I would have the same issue with noodle splash? Drinking the liquid kind of makes sense to be fair, it's just not something I have ever thought of doing.

No? They're not massive noodles are they?  I've never understood why anyone would use a fork on a food that is essentially 30% liquid.

About a year ago, I had to leave a Pot Noodle longer than intended to answer the phone or something, and when I came back after it had been soaking for well over twenty minutes, the noodles were far softer and plumper than I ever realised they could get. I do this all the time now.

Pot Noodle on toast is a treat! The first time me and my lady had Pot Noodle as a couple and she asked how many slices of bread I wanted I knew she was the one.

I’ve taken to not smashing the noodles up and just leaving them soak for 5 minutes then giving them a good stir and leaving them for 5 more.

Oh man, beef and tomato pot noodle with a can of tuna mixed in, the staple diet of teenage insomniac 24 hour computer session Ralphy 

I couldn't cook in those days 

I can't remember how I ate it, I will have to buy one and find out
