Is There Anything the Japanese Can't Do?

A simple technique to stir cocoa -- or any powdered drink -- better (via Lifehacker):

It seems so simple now. Thank you. I'm going to start consuming more things soluble.

Just one note. When they do the 1st example (the traditional stir), notice that they pour out the contents, and quickly tip the cup back up.

However, when they do their "inherently evil" example (the new stir), they pour the contents out and leave the cup upside-down for several seconds. Coincidence?

Don't let the "traditional stir" die people! That's what the Japanese want!

I'm with Arch on this one. Besides, aren't those lumps of cocoa at the bottom what we're really after!

I noticed that, too, Russ, and almost didn't post it... but then the transparent cup sold me.

Another confession: When I saw the headline "How to Stir Cocoa" I thought it was something else. I'm in Vegas this week, and Cocoa is the name of the dead hooker in my hotel bathtub.
