A moment of silence

For the ramen noodle guy. Yes, the man who invented the ramen noodle, without which many of us would die in the wilderness, died last week. Momofuku Ando was 96. He lived near Osaka, and in his lifetime, built a business around the fried and dried noodles. His company, Nissin Foods, was known for Cup Noodles, that reached 25 billion in sales last year. Check out this fitting tribute to Ando and raise a cup (of noodles) in his memory.

Long Live the Ramen King!!!! Many a college student has also survived on these tasty yet inexpensive noodles.
