I wouldn't take cues from guys wearing pantyhose to protect them from 60 mph crashes.

LOL You guys are funny. Just be careful with that stuff its really high in salt and doesn't have a lot of nutrition in it. But it sure can hit he spot. Wish they made it in hot and sour style..... But in a pinch it works once in a while. Otherwise I would look like a chipmunk.

What is the best video recording device and software to document each Cup o Noodles event? I want to assure that if something goes wrong I have proof that it is somebody else's fault and also my heirs will be able to get an adequate settlement. Also it can record the speed with which I finish cooking and eating each serving of noodles so that I can constantly improve my noodling technique and meet my goal of being the bestest/fastest noodlehead in the land.

Not “tubeless-ready”. Remove spokes from obsolete wheel set for use as chopsticks. Use thread end on noodles for improved grip.

Just like when I read to others a service manual written in English by Japanese* speaking people, I have to "finish the translation".

Or do both at the same time and pretend you're a rotisserie chicken.

The If you watch the Tour De France you can see the riders getting a Cup O' Noodles from a support car and quickly swallowing it down in one gulp.

Wonder what they keep the temperature at?

After 10 miles I detach the cup from the hub and eat the resulting ICE CREAM. Yay.

Now I get it. Toshiro Mifune got into all those samari movies by bribing Akira Kurosawa with the best ramen noodles in Japan. Makes perfect sense!

This is the point in the thread where indyfabz tells us how he produced handmade noodles on the top of Devil's Tower.

If you have to ask (or even discuss?) how to prepare cup-o-noodles, you should have bought a different kind of soup product instead.

Cup o' Noodles?!? You guys are CRAZY for eating that junk! Do you REALIZE how much salt is in that stuff? And chemicals! There is NOTHING natural in it, and it's manufactured in a huge corporate factory and the toxic byproducts they produce there foul streams all the way to the nearest ocean! And just THINK of all the packaging that stuff comes in! Baby seals in the Arctic have trace elements of soup cups in their colons.

My understanding is that the ingredients of Cup O'Noodles become toxic when exposed to 5G cell signals.

No, not toxic per se, it's just that the mind control chemicals in the Cup O' Noodles become active once exposed to the 5G. Alex Jones and Karen on Facebook said it so it must be true.
