Tasty or addictive? Chinese restaurant serves noodles laced with opium poppy

Hong Kong (CNN) -- The noodles were not just tasty. They were addictive.
A Chinese noodle vendor in northern Shaanxi province has been detained for 10 days after admitting he added powdered poppy plant from which opium is made --- to his dishes to keep customers coming back, Chinese media has reported.

The owner said that he bought 4 catty (2kg) of the substance for 600 yuan ($98) in August. He said he added it to his food to make it taste better and to improve his business, the Huashangbao paper reported.

Snip:

It added that lacing food with opium poppy was not uncommon in China, with similar cases in 2010 and 2012.

It's the ultimate comfort food.

Stuart Mackenzie: Well, it's a well known fact, Sonny Jim, that there's a secret society of the five wealthiest people in the world, known as The Pentavirate, who run everything in the world, including the newspapers, and meet tri-annually at a secret country mansion in Colorado, known as The Meadows.

Tony Giardino: So who's in this Pentavirate?

Stuart Mackenzie: The Queen, The Vatican, The Gettys, The Rothschilds, *and* Colonel Sanders before he went tits up. Oh, I hated the Colonel with is wee *beady* eyes, and that smug look on his face. "Oh, you're gonna buy my chicken! Ohhhhh!"
Charlie Mackenzie: Dad, how can you hate "The Colonel"?
Stuart Mackenzie: Because he puts an addictive chemical in his chicken that makes ya crave it fortnightly, smartass!

3. Four months ago my Hanyu lessons began.

I told all my friends at that time that if the election came down to a Clinton/Bush race that I was moving to China.

Now I have TWO good reasons to be there. Better launch the Fluenz app!

4. I wonder what they put in soft drinks.

There's no good reason to drink that stuff. I'd rather drink tap water.

(But I do know why I like beer.)
