Welcome to the grain of rice website


Mankind's greatest feats...

Man has landed on the moon, climbed Everest, built the Great Wall of China, the Pyramids, created the Roman Empire, the internet, modern medecine, nuclear fission, so many greats.

So many questions left unanswered?

Can we travel in time? Can man live on Mars? Can we create a car that runs on air? Can we communicate with beings from another planet?

I am about to answer one of the greatest unanswered questions of all time

How many grains of rice in a packet of rice?
No-one really knows the answer to the question "How many grains of rice are in a 500 gram bag of rice". Loads of people have tried and failed to find the answer. If you search the internet you will find many estimates where people have weighed a grain of rice and multiplied the weight to get an estimated answer.

The Truth is out there

I have taken it upon myself to find out the answer. After purchasing a packet of rice from a local store, I plan to count and record in a database every single grain of rice in the packet.

Soon we will know the truth

Every grain of rice that I count will be hand writen with the number of the grain, the rice grain will then be placed in an oil filled vial that serves to magnify and preserve the grain. A certificate of authenticity will be printed and every certificate will have a unique authentication code which can be checked on the website by the certificate holder.

Just imagine owning your own unique piece of history, or giving one to someone as a gift, which will only increase in value in years to come.
