i aint even joking when i say there is a magic string on a bag of rice. lotsa yall know this already, but all bags of rice are stitched shut with this string thing - there's like three strings altogether - and if you find the magic string (the others are false leads like dead ends in a maze) and if you pull that one string, the whole bag will just open up and then you can get your rice out the bag. i was camping a bit ago and nobody could figure it out... one guy insisted that he'd seen is moms do it before, but when it got down to it, we had to use a knife to cut the strings. people were getting hungry for their rice so we couldn't wait there forever while he tried to find the magic string! and here is a picture of him trying to do just that:
well, i figured everything is on youtube, so i thought that when i get back i gotta get on the youtube and see if somebody got something to tell me how to do this... and here's what i found -- bag is from thailand, but not the teacher!
well, it takes him so long on that second string (and i had no idea what he was even doing cause i couldn't see nothing) that i kept yelling at him through my computer screen: "open it with a knife already!!!" that video wasn't much helpful, so i looked some more and found this one. thai rice with a thai teacher, (woo hoo! i can understand!) and only 1 minute open time...
he even does a "beup!" sound effect when he makes the
scissor cut. i like this one a lot. but seriously, can anybody post something in english?
i feel like this is a long time coming. i need to be able to do this. problem is, i just opened my rice (jasmine and sticky), so it may be a while before i get through all 25 lbs so i can practice. (unless somebody out there just bought a bag and needs it opened...)
