Origins of the Noodle

Postby Rifkin on Mon Mar 26, 2007 4:05 am

Wikipedia wrote:A noodle is a thin strip of unleavened dough that has been rolled, dried and cooked in boiling water. The term often refers to moist, cooked noodles, since it has connotations of curviness and slipperiness, but also applies to dried noodles that must be reconstituted by boiling or by soaking in water. The word noodle derives from Latin nodus (knot), via German Nudel (noodle, pasta). A noodle includes all varieties from all origins, whereas Pasta refers specifically to Italian style noodle products such as spaghetti, penne, fettucine, or linguini. The Chinese, Arab and Italian people all claimed to have been the first to create this string-like food, though the first written account of noodles is from the East Han Dynasty between 25 and 220 CE. In October 2005, the oldest noodles yet discovered were found at the Lajia site (Qijia culture) along the Yellow River in Qinghai, China. The 4,000-year-old noodles appear to have been made from foxtail millet and broomcorn millet.


Would that make Lajia site, holy grounds? :mrgreen:

Well, you could look at it like this: we worship a (the) flying spaghetti monster, not a flying noodle monster. ths is not unlike the difference between an omnipotent guy with a beard and an omnipotent woman with a beard; very similar, but one just makes more sense. I hope this sheds new light on the matter.

and clearly the Gospel states he is only refered to as the Flying Spaghetti Monster when his real name when pronounced would destroy all that is so something along those lines

(not an exact quote left my copy of the gospel at school)
