Momofuku Ando, RIP

Inventor of "Instant Ramen" noodles

Mr. Ando sold 45 billion packs of instant noodles last year, that works out to about 8 packs per person in the world. Thats pretty amazing. He got the idea from seeing people in Japan after WWII wait in line for noodle soup. Just think how much time and money he has saved the world's poor (and those too busy in their jobs to take off time for lunch). And he lived to be 96 years old, so maybe all that MSG isnt so bad for you after all.
