Ancient Ramen?

The world's oldest noodles have been discovered, surprisingly not in a college dorm refrigerator.

4,000 years ago, some Chinese diner in northwestern China abandoned their dinner suddenly, and left it to be dug up by archaeologists. The noodles, interestingly enough, were made from millet and not wheat or rice.

They should go well with thousand year old eggs.

Read that in the NY Times today while eating a bowl of stale cereal for lunch. Almost wanted to trade it in for those noodles. I wonder how they'd taste...
