Add another $150 per month for every month you live here till you discover Ramen. What's Ramen? Moonbear Staff Emeritus Science Advisor Gold Member Clausius2 said: What's Ramen? Cheap noodles with a "flavor" packet that's mostly salt and artificial flavoring. You boil the noodles for about 3 min and then add the contents of your flavor packet. There is also a version in a styrofoam cup, with noodles that are nearly indistinguishable in flavor from the styrofoam. For those, you just add water up to the line drawn on the cup, and stick it in the microwave for 2 min. If you stock up when they are on sale, you can get 5 for$1. Cheap grad student sustenance!

It sounds good. I think I'm going to take noodles every night for supper. :rofl:

Taste, however, is an entirely different sensation. :tongue2:
