Never was big on the whole Ramen thing. For cheap meals, I'm more of a PB&J guy, myself. But I didn't buy that shirt, either.

And we both must not have our finger on the woot pulse, because I DID buy the robot shirt this week. I sorta get a kick that it is STILL stuck on 393 sales. Not one more shirt sold since it's day in the Sun!

I'll wear it with relish. And, actually, the dailies this week are far better than the apparent derby winners. But that's just me.



Jestik, I can't believe it's still stuck at 393! I can only hope you post up a pic that spurs some sales (provided you get the shirt before it's reckoned) so that the poor guy gets some commissions. You have excellent taste; had I just a little more discretionary income at the moment, I would've picked one up without hesitation.

And yes, I agree about the relative quality of the predicted winners versus the dailies this week. I even picked up a daily (the bear one--I kept coming back to it before finally breaking down).

3 minutes exactly, al dente, not too cooked. Plus, It's best dropping in an egg the last minute and scrambling it. Fun time during sunday football.

Edit: Don't assume the name means I'm Asian. I'm European.

He's not vomiting; he is simply "slurping" his noodles like any normal Japanese person would. Ramen is usually served in a large bowl with more hot liquid in it than I think is normal for college students and SAs. You don't try to wrap it around the chopsticks like you might with spaghetti, but instead get some noodles to your mouth and let them air-cool until you feel they are the right temperature. The louder the slurp the better.

That said, I am not buying this shirt.

Dear Writers,

Being a systems administrator at a major university, I am offended that you would nonchalantly classify me and many other hard working individuals as ramen slurping keyboard mashers in your daily shirt description and as a group who would wear this shirt. Consider this my formal complaint.

Good day.

May be even more amusing if the entire image was rotated 180° as if the wearer were using the shirt as a sort of cheat sheet.

Real college students eat their ramen right out of the pot it was cooked in.

Couldn't you claim irony? That works in a lot of situations. Being in college would certainly make the 'irony' angle a lot more believable...

Not too upset to miss the shirt - yellow does not look good on me - but I actually laughed out loud reading the comments. I swear that makes my day.

And, a comment on eating them raw - back when I was in middle school, that was the cool thing to do. Everyone did it. I never ate cooked ramen until I was quite a bit older. ^_^

Also, the best way to eat ramen is after making a sauce in another pan of flour, butter, milk, and the seasoning packet, then pouring that over the drained noodles.

I dont like soup.
but I love ramen noodles.
I do them diffrent then anyone has mentioned so far..

first I throw them in a bowl with water, then microwave them for 3 or 4 mins (depending on the amount of water)

i then..... duh-duh-dunnnnn... drain the water.
i know. shocking.... i drain like 98% of the water out, then pour the seasoning packet over it and stir the noodles until they're coated.... you then have nice, flavorful noodles... without all that crappy soupy-broth stuff.

Mmm. Ramen.

I like it uncooked, oddly enough.

And I don't see how this is racist at all. I'm asian. O.o

Why bother dirtying a pot? I boil up some water in my electric kettle, break up the noodles a little and put them in a bowl, sprinkle the spices over the noodles and then pour water over them and cover the bowl with a plate for a few minutes. Et voila.

4. Throw up in a bowl
3. Put in medium saucepan and add spices
2. Cook until vomit turns to water and add noodles

Didn't you get the memo? Racism doesn't apply to Asians. As a group, they have their stuff together WAY too much to be considered eligible for race card benefits. Tell your friend I'm sorry, but for all intents and purposes, he can consider himself white. (And if he's applying to colleges, I recommend he check that box, by the way, if he wants a reasonable chance at getting in.)
