Just a few [first world problem] questions that have been on my mind today…
Does anybody know why Thai restaurants are stingy with steamed rice?
Why do so many people at a red light stop a full car length from the next car, then after a few seconds start creeping slowly forward while the light is still red?
Why do people temporarily parking in your driveway without permission leave their car at some odd angle, or in parallel fashion to block as much of it as possible?
How can crows always know that you aren’t looking out the window when they raid your trash can?
Interestingly enough, I did my Ph.D dissertation on the subjects you mentioned. It turns out that all 4 questions are related. Drivers at lights are distracted by the fact that they just got so little rice at the Thai place they just ate at. When they pull up to a Thai restaurant, they will frequently park at odd angles to avoid all the crows inevitably sitting in the driveway. And crows are so smart, they know when you leave the house and drive to get Thai food. As to why Thai restaurants give you a small bowl of rice? They hope that you buy another, of course.
Holy fish sauce, DJM! Are you Batman? Such flawless logic! POW!
If an Asian restaurant is stingy on rice, it’s target customer would be middle and above class non-Asians. It probably serves alcohol that doesn’t fit with the food also, like wine or “Asian-themed” cocktails.
