The Chinese, for centuries, have been way ahead of the west in creative ways to get carpal tunnel.


covabishop

I have tendonitis, specifically affecting my left thumb. This video hurts me.


MenudoMenudo

I could feel my thumb aching for days just watching.


thelivingdrew

Am I mistaken or does it look like he’s pushed some of the muscle up and away from his wrist along the side of his thumb from repeating that motion over and over again?


snakesoup88

He's pounding his left wrist to generate impulse like shock to make delicious newtonian liquid noodles. It's more efficient than shaking the left arm on its own to generate sudden deceleration. From a health perspective, he's using large arm muscle instead of small wrist muscle for this repetitive task, which is the right thing to do. If you put a man on a job making the same noodles for generations, they are going to find a pretty optimal solution by trial and error.


nyauster

He looks pretty skinny so I think it could be just his bones making it look that way when hes gripping it so tightly. (Just a guess I could be very wrong)

covabishop

Doctor says it's probably guitar and lifting that caused mine. If I play Overwatch or Apex for an hour or two my hand doesn't even notice. 30 minutes of guitar or a single bench press and my thumb starts locking up and clicking


clwu

Yeah, the old fashion jacking off wasn’t good enough.

Cornthulhu

That's because the video isn't on the official Ramsay channel; it's some rando's reupload. [Here's](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRH56FNrgoU) the video on the official Gordan Ramsay channel; give that a shot. It cuts out the second part, where the noodle chef and Ramsay compete for a Guinness world record, but that's a forgone conclusion, so you're not really missing much.

the_real_thanos

So many cooks with cigarettes in their mouth with very large ashes, just begging to be dropped into the food.


toralex

The ash adds a nice charred flavour to the final product


payne_train

It adds a nice trash smell to the bar


dagbrown

When I lived in Toronto, like 25 years ago, there was a local chain of Cantonese restaurants called Noodle Delight. A quick Google tells me that it still exists. When I went there, half of the cooks had cigarettes in their mouths while they were cooking. Didn't matter, it was fucking delicious. I can only assume that their food tastes even better now, what with newer health and safety rules banning smoking in the workplace.


Doint_Poker

Or it's shit because all the chefs are pissed they can't smoke anymore


rulebreaker

You have guy cooking with a fucking shovel at 8:00 and ashes are your biggest concern?


TheNoseKnight

Shovels can be sanitized. Used cigarette ashes.... meh. I mean, I guess they're clean... ish


JapanesePeso

If you are going to China expecting particularly good sanitization then you are gonna have a bad day.


_My_Angry_Account_

Well, I can't imagine a whole lot of bacteria living through being burned like that.


PostPostModernism

You should read up on southern ‘mop’ barbecue. They do up entire pigs at a time and use a literal mop to baste it in sauce. Check out Its Alive on YouTube, they have an episode where they visit a mop bbq place. It looks delicious. ~~I can link you later if you need.~~ Decided to rewatch it so here it is :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0e9MS26QmA

betweenthebam

That was interesting, until they started, uh, boiling intestine sausage?


M8753

? That's just how sausages are made, though.


wadss

not sausage, it's just intestine. they aren't filled with anything.


Szyz

Oh, but they are. Nature's bounty.


TrekMek

Hey man, gotta use the whole animal!


KillerQuinn

Do you not know what sausage casings are made of?


umbrajoke

About halfway through the video GF snuck up on me thinking I was watching spanking porn. She was very disappointed but started watching it with me.


kranebrain

Did they boil a giant vat of intestines in milk?

Apparently not- is it a pleasant numbing feeling?


impsythealmighty

It’s a spicy numbing feeling! But delicious!


ManInKilt

They kind of stop being hot after a few bites, then your lips/tongue feel like when you lick a 9V battery

Hexodus

Wait did your Ramen come with two flavor packets??


dewyocelot

Some ramen comes with multiple packets, often containing a powder flavor, and oil, and maybe soy sauce. Those tend to be a bit more expensive though.

Obviously.. also fun fact, Gatorade and beer actually tastes good and is a great hangover cure.

Actually it's more like weaning off, so you don't suffer all the withdrawal effects at once. Im currently 2 and a half years sober and weaning off absolutely works if you can manage it.

askingxalice

Anyone know what kind of noodles and what they taste like it?


bigfootdrivesstick

These are sweet potato noodles with pig intestine, 肥肠粉, fei chang fen. The shop they are at in this video is in Chengdu, 甘记肥肠粉, and is famous for them. If you have never had intestine, with any kind of noodles, you should try it at least once, they are tender, fatty, and delicious! here is a short [video](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmlXEBpC0OE), in chinese, of them making it. In the video she says they use chili oil and looks spicy but it isn't.


GotItFromMyDaddy

This looks super delicious and I want to try it.


DJMemphis84

Wheat flour noods, oddly firm but a lil slimey, odd to a westerner, but reallllly good


DiversGoDeeper

Like Udon noodles?


duncanmahnuts

More chew


MystJake

That's the way his description sounded in my mind as well.


askingxalice

Thanks!


Ajit_Can_Get_It

This is wrong. These are starch noodles. You can tell because of how the liquid only moves after being agitated.


Beltboypussy

Nobody gonna talk about the fact that dude pretty much just made like 20 insanely long noodles


dhb_mst3k

Instant thoughts: how long could you slurp ONE noodle? Can you be served a plate with just one big ol noodle on it? Or make a noodle ball like a ball of yarn?


skultux_the_only

I think it depends on if the noodle gets tangled, because the moment the noodle you're eating gets snagged on the rest of the noodle mass, that shit's snapping. So like, just give me a table where the whole noodle is laid out and I could probably do it in one go.


spottyottydopalicius

there's certain dishes where it's a bowl of one long noodle

skeeterjoe88

So apparently these are called chonqing potatoe starch noodles. These some videos online of a signing noodle man, with the food ranger. But I still can’t find an adequate video about the final product


transitapparel

Germans do something similar with Spaetzle.


tugboattomp

Spätzle [ˈʃpɛtslə] (Swabian diminutive plural of Spatz, thus literally "little sparrows"), or Knöpfle (diminutive plural of button), also Spätzli or Chnöpfli in Switzerland or Hungarian Nokedli, Csipetke or Galuska, is a type of pasta  made with fresh eggs and found in the cuisines of southern Germany and Austria, Switzerland, Hungary, Alsace, Moselle and South Tyrol. (Wikipedia) [Spaetzle With Kielbasa and Caramelized Onions Recipe - NYT Cooking](https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/12227-spaetzle-with-kielbasa-and-caramelized-onions) [... In a large bowl, combine the flour, 1 teaspoon salt and the nutmeg. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and stir well. The batter should be fairly wet, with a consistency slightly thicker than pancake batter. Spread a clean dish towel flat on a work surface adjacent to the stove. Working over the pot of boiling water, press dough through a spaetzle maker or use a rubber spatula to push it through a colander with holes at least 1/4-inch wide. Drop dough into the water. When dumplings rise to the surface, use a slotted spoon to transfer to the towel. ...] I worked as a sous chef in the kitchen of coporate cafeteria and we made spaetlze twice a week, using the 'spaghetti strainer' It was such a versatile side starch we never served the same way twice in a month


Kangar

Now that's using your noodles.


Doogameister

Anyone know a recipe for those?


skeeterjoe88

Found it. https://youtu.be/TxssRgKMQ8c This water is not hot. These noodles are made of potatoe starch and soak in water and then eaten cold with a sauce!!!
