Hmmm. How to put this tactfully...


Yes, you're supposed to put food on your white rice. If you're like  
billions of people around the world, and white rice is very nearly the  
only food you have on a regular basis, and brown rice won't last more  
than a week or so in your climate without getting rancid, you grasp  
for solutions.

Funny how that solution, in most parts of the world, is generally not  
to drench it with Kikkoman...

And if you simply don't like white rice, or have never had well- 
prepared white rice and think it's the rice's fault, and you have a  
choice in the matter, the thing to do is probably to eat something else.
