  • That is interesting. I’ve always associated Basmati rice with India, yet the term “rice” when used with computers, came from “rice bois” in the car world many, many years ago.

    These were traditionally young Japanese men, who did up their cars to look amazingly fancy, but underneath they weren’t capable at all.

    So they were all show and no go so to speak.

    I guess just recently in the politically correct world, that I saw born here on Lemny in real time, the term rice is not appropriate anymore, because it’s associated with racism.

    I hope that little history lesson helps you see the root of the term rice, and why it is intriguing to me, to see Basmati used here, as the term changes, and morphs through time.
