Learn something new every day. I didn't know potatoes could be grown in rice paddys.

Well, in all fairness you couldn't count that high.

Potatoes will grow anywhere. I throw old store-boughts into a drum-type composter I built. Hardly any light gets into the thing and yet, within a few weeks I'll have potato plants growing out of the thing. Of course, it is growing in pure compost which I suppose is a help.

That's all well and good but what's the point if we're still stuck with the shiatty Mayalsian Pringles? They're almost as bad as ChipStar now.

Might help if Japan eased its quarantine regs on imported potatoes.

All this talk of rice, potatoes and paddys made me think of this.

I thought it might be tariffs, but a quick google search shows it's only 5%. Wheat is 252%. Holy shiat.

Also, they should stop watering them with Brawndo.
