Dear Dave, I do believe.
I've always wondered what about the Pot Noodles. Do they go off or not? I've heared they get better with age. You know like wine does.:P
You believe wrong I'm afraid, it was Lemons.
That's not actually the case with most wines, most wine that you'd buy from the supermarkets you've got about a year to drink before it starts turning. It'll still be drinkable, insofar as it wont poison you, but it wont be taste anywhere near as good as if you'd drank it in time. Good fine wines and champagnes are different, but for the general purpose stuff that you'll pay about £5-6 a bottle for, if you buy it just drink it, there's no point saving it for a special occasion because it's not going to get any better.
I always imagined that the urine was purified and filtered leaving just the recycled, but possibly still slightly impure water and that was then used in whatever homebrew Kryten and Lister had on the go rather than actual fermented urine.
Pot noodles are the dog's milk of food. Taste just as horrible when they go off as they do when 'fresh'.
Yes of course it is When they talk about doing the operation on Jesus, that's when Cat learns he's eaten human for the second time
Yeah, But I'm talking quality here with Pot Noodles not some cheap Tesco's plonk. You tell me what Wine comes with a mango chutney packet akin to finding a Diamond in a lump of coal. None. Give me a bombay badboy with three rounds of bread & butter over a glass of grape du plonk anyday. :P
That's the one!
Imagine if red dwarf had had a farm deck in order to always have fresh food, what carrots and chickens would evolve into over the 3 million years would probably make Eric the healthy option
You've just described a Tesco's extra.:P
I'm amazed they can still obtain Pot Noodles in deep space although I'm puzzled why there's no Curry ones seeing Lister loves a Vindaloo? Didn't realise they were so popular outside earth let alone the Rhondda Valley where they're made.8)
I think no matter what you do with a pot noodle it will never go off, it's the least biodegradable substance in existence and humanity had no way to get rid of them hence they packed them into space ships and rigged drive plates to blow

Hey, Pot Noodle used as an interstellar ship's ballast. Well I never. Besides also making a good pair communicators from some empty the pots usuing a piece of string in an emergency to even eating it on occasion the Pot Noodle surpasses all known food items for it's durability and usability. Pot Noodles Rule!:P
I confess that I was always fond of pot noodles when I was young, with that tasty soya sauce in little sachets, although I haven't had any since then.
I never quite understood the disgust for them played on in Red Dwarf. I can understand why some would see them as bland (although I think there are spicy varieties) and they're certainly not the quality noodle dishes you can get from Chinese/Thai/Japanese restaurants, but they were far from revolting. To me anyway.
I do remember being slightly shocked and disgusted when I found out (as a kid) that those little bits of meat weren't actually meat though.
I like the curry flavored Pot Noodle.
There's one about now that can obliterate your insides and burn both ends simultaneously.
Man you've got class. I too love Curry ones which are the best tasting over the Tomato & Mushroom pretenders. The one you're thinking of is the Vindaloo of the Pot Noodles and called a bombay Bad boy. There's been many a an hour sitting on the bog after one of those buttock steaming monsters wishing that I'd never eaten one. :P
I'm so glad I was never tempted by them...
