I came across this video today of the traditional “pounding” of mochi, rice which is basically pounded into a soft sticky substance. The speed at which these guys do this is pretty impressive. I wonder how many times the guy has had his hand smashed. I bet they really hate when someone quites. Brings a whole new meaning to the pain of hiring someone.

For those who don’t know, Mochi (もち) is the Japanese word meaning sticky rice cake. They are very very good!
