“Because there is a convenience store” —
for when “because of monkeys” just isn’t enough.

And when I walk on my hands I have no idea where I am.

Left walk is way of the dark side. Left leads to anger. Anger leads to Excel.
Excel leads to Powerpoint. From Powerpoint, no returning there is.

Go into convenience store.
Buy beer.
Repeat.

Sounds like something I read in the Talmud when I was in rabbinical school.

And in this exhibit we see our primitive ancestors driving herds of wild ramen off a cliff to fall into the boiling springs below.

If I want Ramen, I’ll visit a restaurant, not a museum! Here are just a few reasons:

– No need to silly walk
– It is not very complicated
– They usually apologize for the incontinence
– Some staffs can speak English and the others cannot speak English at all (I prefer the latter)
– A bell of a fire alarm doesn’t think other visitors are annoying
– There are no monkeys (well, sort of)

Also: in a restaurant, nobody excels me or the Spanish Inquisition!

# You are standing in an open field west of a white house
> Walk vertical.
# You are at a convenience store. You die of dysentery.

This is the most ingenious marketing campaign for selling instant ramen at a convenience store I have ever seen!

So the only thing standing between you and being able to fly is a convenience store?
I get it now! To transcend we must throw off all these materialistic shackles! The convenience store represents conformism, apathy and materialism. Thank you Momofuku!
