For the record, Canucks do weight in lbs and mass in grams equally well, but can't figure out stone. We don't speak height in cm, but can't do length in miles very well.

I'll mark you down for 4000 noodles!

Time to update the thermometer, then. (I hope you find my script remotely useful.)

Do you want to be Chief Thermometer Tech? You've got the second post.

A wondrous event has occured. I hit 1000. Therefore in gratitude I am donating, appropriately some traditional chicken soup with vermicelli. Two bowlfuls.

This sounds awfully confusing.

I liked your cougar avatar more than this latest one, Doctor.

It's not really confusing. Just say how many pounds of noodles you donated, and Doc will convert them to a noodle count, and I'll update the thermometer.

Oh, all right. I will need to buy a scale, then.

Most boxes have net weight on them, to make it easier.

Ramen should for sure. If you're buying cases, it should say something like 24 x 50 g on the box. You might have to multiply.


The new avatar is... well, let's face it, I like to change avatars. JoD is going underground for a while. See the Hell Hole if you want the full explanation on the avatar... it's a brewery's logo with the obligatory crossbones. Unibroue is damned good beer... maybe the best made in Canada.

Yeah, I was just wondering if it actually got out of Quebec at a good level... I mean, can you buy them in grocery stores just aside Sleeman for example? (They don't have it up there in Finland, looking forward to go back home for vacation next summer and drink a lot of it!)
