Sushi boat museum collections

Have all the pieces on a roller system so museum ReVisitors eventually view the entire collection

I read about a mineral museum with 1000 minerals on display and 18,000 in their collection. time for mineral sushi boat display!

One version of the sushi boat, but not the one that this idea refers to ... https://www.tripadv...sburg_Virginia.html

       Now you've made me hungry.

       What, for rocks ?   

       Are you silicon-based, then ?

       The Natural History museum could use this. They hold about 35 million insect specimens. Assuming only 5cm per insect, a belt just over 1000 miles long would allow visitors to view the entire collection. Assuming 1 second per insect, this could be accomplished in a little over a year.

       I could see this system working at all kinds of museums. The Louvre, for starters.

       " Are you silicon-based, then ? — 8th of 7, Feb 02 2017 "   

       Well, I know of some girls that are silicone-based, but I prefer the natural herstory museum.

       Fabulous [+] other subjects for sushi-boat conveyance should also be identified as rapidly as is mutually convenient, and then deployed with gusto.
zen_tom, Feb 02 2017

       Oh, you mean listed. Boats may list, but ...
normzone, Feb 02 2017

       Umm, call me thick if you will, but what's a sushi boat?
not_morrison_rm, Feb 03 2017

       Very well, if you insist. You are thick.   

       I'll go find a sushi boat for you.
normzone, Feb 03 2017

       Ahhh, Kaiten-zushi...why didn't you say so?
not_morrison_rm, Feb 03 2017

       While I have your attention, what is the phrase for " just feed me what you think is best " ?
normzone, Feb 03 2017

       I suspect that [beany] has confused the words "boat" (or possible "boin") and "belt".
MaxwellBuchanan, Feb 03 2017

       somewhere on the link page it does say "Some restaurants use a fancier presentation such as miniature wooden "sushi boats" traveling small canals or miniature locomotive cars."
not_morrison_rm, Feb 03 2017

       // Kaiten-zushi //   

       "Kaiten" ?   


8th of 7, Feb 03 2017

       Wow. Just wow. Sushi bent on self destruction. The things I learn from this place ...   

       Oh, and the interweb informs me that the word I'm looking for is " omakase ".
normzone, Feb 03 2017

       There's also "Kaizen", a quality term that means "improvement " or "change for the better".   

       Much subtle and harmless amusement may be had by eliding Kaizen into Kaiten in conversation and documents, eventuality leading to the top management unknowingly emphasizing the importance of manned suicide torpedoes as a route to better productivity ...

       "ten(goku)" is "heaven", so it should be Kaiten-tengoku, but maybe they ran out of paint? "Jigoku" is "hell", the really volcanic bit of Japan is named as this.   

       Persons of a nervous disposition will be pleased to know no actual sushi was harmed in the production of the subs.   

       As for committing suicide please go check the Dentsu advertising company...
not_morrison_rm, Feb 04 2017

       Flying models of Japanese WW2 aircraft, packed with explosives and with just enough fuel for a one-way trip ...   

       Maybe the individual sushi boats could be painted dull grey, with names on them like "Kaga", "Soryu", "Akagi" and "Hiryu" ... at the end of the conveyor, they fall off into a very, very deep tank of seawater, and sink.
