    Japanese sliced bread

    This may be slightly off-topic, but it's so funny I had to share it.

    Yongfook.com reviews Japanese pre-processed foods; this time, it's bread.

    Quote: "The thickness and density of the slices also explains why there are almost no regular pop-up style toasters in Japan... since gravity simply will not allow one of these behemoth slices to be accelerated upwards at a speed other than minus 1 billion parsecs a second."

    OMG lol, I am just eating a cheese sandwich (I love cheese mmmmm) anyways, and I noticed I was in fact eating right to left... yet I would assume being left handed that left to right would be more efficient... Now just thinking about it, I'm' pretty sure I always do that. I rotate the sandwich 45° and eat from the right corner to the left..weird.

    Why is French toast listed among a "Bad uses for Japanese bread" (it looks the part)... yeah, the author seems kinda crummy, maybe even tasteless.

    Well I typically like my french toast to be really thin, seems to taste better. You'd really only have the outside cooked and yummy on that behemoth, then you get to the plain dense interior.

    I knew that if I stuck around here long enough, I'd get a pun out of somebody

    Eating, as in food

    That would fall under:
    ... any [...] activity that involves putting the bread in your mouth and swallowing it

    Oh, of course!
    BTW, the Brits can dish out quite the broad slice, unlike the Aussies, who seem content redefining the crouton...

    i know (and this is really true) that on the Dutch Royal Military Academy, they teach the high ranked military people of the future, a standard procedure to cut up and eat slices of bread. I once worked on a military base and had lunch together with the high ranks in the dutch army. They all ate their bread the same way. Uniformity rules....

    I think I've been watching too many Bond films lately.
