Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,
This is a really strange question, but what the heck...
if you eat raw noodles, will they absorb the liquid in your body?
I used to eat a ton of raw noodles (they really are good... especially the egg ones) and after awhile I had this unquenchable thirst. Someone pointed out that it could be from the raw noodles in my stomach absorbing the water I drank (I drank a dangerously large amount. I'd get headaches from drinking too much), so I stopped eating the noodles. A week or so after I stopped eating noodles I could finally quench my thirst. So do you think the thirst was from the noodles or that it was just a coincedence that the noodle eating and thirst happened at the same time?
- Noodle

A: Dear Noodle-

They absorb water, but not as much as it sounds like you needed.
