I was going to comment on the styrofoam plate but it's actually a pretty good article and makes sense.

Yah but does it auto-pixelate your junk so you can walk around naked and free?

Look at that. Free. Unlimited. I would gorge myself to death. But at least I'd die a happy man.

It is all pretty cool. Watched a video this morning about a young lady from... Canada?... who was trying to unwrap a SANKAKU BENTO, or a triangular onigiri from 7 11. There is a trick to it, and her primate brain was too challenged to get it right until another primate showed her.

And speaking of monkeys. No more monkeys jumping on the bed!

I don't know if people know this, but the Olympic village units are going to be sold off as condos after the games, so all the furnishings were set to be recyclable. So the beds are super strong, but yes, they are cardboard, and yes, they will be recycled.

There are a lot of food videos too. What the videos do not show is that the sushi is pretty run of the mill stuff here in Japan, but it IS made from fresh Japanese ingredients, so many people are saying it is the best sushi they have ever had. Honestly, it probably is. The best sushi I ever had in the US was at a place in San Jose, and it would have been mid grade compared to what I can get from a restaurant 10 minutes from here. The second best I had in the US was in Manhattan in the mid 1980s.

And last point. Looking at the dishes in the picture posted above, the most expensive item among them might be..... the watermelon. Does that surprise anyone?

I'm underweight so I consider all fruits and vegetables extremely expensive in terms of calories-per-dollar and calories-per-time-wasted-chewing. I like how they taste and all but they're a waste until when/if my metabolism slows down.
