Rice Planting

Elvis Costello is credited for bringing sexy back to cheap eyeglasses in the 1980s for artsy-hipster men. Lisa Loeb did her share for making cat eye frames look hot on the girl-next-door but it was not until Tina Fey sat atop her perch every Saturday night that Americans started to notice how hot a woman can look in women eyeglasses!</p>
<p>So, what else turns on Americans about discount glasses? A recent study done by Essilor of America asked more than 3,000 men and women about their perception of cheap eyeglasses and eye wear.

"Per capita" is synonomous with "per person" correct? If this is the case, then the average Japanese person eats around 65KG of rice a year. So this means with our day of work we fed around nine Japanese people their yearly rice consumption. Or I guess you could think of it as feeding one person for nine years.

How much rice does the average person eat a year in Japan? I could look it up myself, but since it's your blog I feel that you have the responsibility to tell us about how much 600kg of rice is...

BTW I hope your *teacher* had pants on at least... if not I'm ticked that you didn't moblog it.

Actually, that sounds kind of fun. I grew up in the land of wood mills and fishing, two industries I would personally like to see crumble to the ground. I'm still thinking of doing a year-long interpreting program someday, so maybe I too will be a rice planter for a day.
