The News Minute | October 5, 2014 | 03:46 pm IST  Do you often get the feeling that your bag of potato chips is filled with more air than chips? What you could also do with it- apart from the obvious choice of eating it- is make a raft and row across a river. Sounds wacky? Well, this is what exactly a group of friends from South Korea did recently- they tied 160 packets of unopened packets of snacks and made a raft. The result being that two sat on the raft and paddled 1.3 km across the Han River, states a report by the BBC.  According to the report, manufacturers say that it is important to fill the packets with some amount of nitrogen to protect the contents in it.  Korean protesters build a boat out of crisp packets http://t.co/ULIXkoqqIB #NewsFromElsewhere pic.twitter.com/qnj9bV5wft — BBC Monitoring (@BBCMonitoring) October 3, 2014
