How to cook rice in 9 easy steps. Evidently it involves race cars, a dash of Japanese anime, and X games music. Or something. I must admit I'm confused, and more than a little scared.

I think it has something to do with this, perhaps?

Meanwhile, I'd still like to know how to cook rice.

the sounds the cars make are kind of funny...

am I missing your sarcasm? this is simple... the German car beat the hell out of the Japanese car... This site is not a corporate VW site, it's some GTI nuts who have a hatred of "rice-burners"...

Something about that animation makes me want to KILL.

yeah, but it's funny that said GTI fans cast themselves as Team Rocket... "prepare for trouble, and make it double":

to protect the world from devastation
to unite all peoples within our nation
to denounce the evils of truth and love
to extend our reach to the stars above..
Jesse! James! Blasting off at the speed of light!
surrender now, or prepare to fight.


yes, i watch too many cartoons.

get a rice cooker.. throw some rice in. pour water in. make sure there is half as much rice as there is water (it's different when your cooking a lot.). turn on rice cooker. after it's done (it should turn itself off), wait for 10-15 minutes. viola, steam white. that's the simple way.

someone really should take flash away from those guys.

As a proud owner of a VW GTI-VR6, I can attest that, yes, that's EXACTLY what it's like.

So a GTI can outaccelerate a Honda Civic. Couldn't we have just looked up some figures to know that? Did we really need to be put through all of... that?

Hey, I know! I'm going to do a crappy animation to further my cause of showing the world that at Porsche 911 Turbo is faster than a GTI! Sheesh!

I don't believe no one gets it. It's so obvious! The information will forever change my rice cooking.

It's apparently a backlash against the customized Asian import scene. Wishful thinking motivated by pure jealousy, I'm sure. (o__^)

Riceboys I like though here they are more likely to be, in Police vernacular ,"of middle eastern appearance
