Riddle

Here is a riddle of sorts.

The answer is:

Boil in two cups of water for 3 minutes.


What's the question?


(PS: It is completely off topic, and college students may have an advantage in this one)

First person to get this correct earns my undying respect.

Wow - the riddle was found, read, and answered correctly in less than an hour!

You got it.

The classic directions for how to prepare ramen noodles.

I will need to make next time's riddle tougher.

I was just making a bite to eat and wondered how many other people memorized those same directions.

damn, guess I was never poor enough to memorize that. I ate far more fun things than ramen.

I had cup-0-noodles!

I actually found a ramen I like, was wondering about the meat involved though (no mention on ingredients, but???)

those are also the same directions on the back of the box for sterilizing pacifiers and bottle nipples.

For many of years, my Ramen flux = 0

Noodle flux is high But I really don't need or want the salt and msg Noodles, sesame oil, red bean paste or anise or some sort of stock or just plain.... mmmmmm. I could eat noodles and pot stickers for weeks, but that probably wouldn't be so healthy
