- giving up short term gains for long term gains.
"Don't try this at home" isn't fun. It's merely entertainment.
I thought it was an entreaty to go behind the neighbour's shed to try it.
You can get all the nutrients you need to be healthy entirely from plants.
Well... physically healthy, anyway. I'm not making any claims about the emotional or mental health of people who refuse to eat bacon.
Humans must eat at least some animal products to be healthy.
Not true. You can get all the nutrients you need to be healthy entirely from plants. However, it is a lot easier to get some nutrients from animal sources.
About the only way to remove fat permanently, without serious exercise and diet, is surgery.
I'm NOT willing to go that route.
Your thinking is wrong, as is most people's. It's what I like to call big D and little d diet. You think of a diet as a short term thing that you do - a temporary change in what you eat. If you want to lose weight, you go on a diet. That's the big D definiton (as in Atkins Diet, South Beach Diet, Paleo-Diet, Grapefruit Diet, etc.) and it is wrong.
A temporary change in what you eat is only going to give you temporary results. If you want a permanent change in weight, you must make a permanent change in what you eat. You must change your diet (little d, as in "The diet of the Koala consists mostly of eucalyptus leaves.").
Which is why obesity is a 'disease of poverty.'
This! At the restuarants around my workplace, a caesar salad costs $3-$4 more than a burger/fries/softdrink combo.
Perhaps what should happen is a 1 cent per calorie tax on fast food. That would hike the price of a Big Mac combo by $13+ dollars. Make the calories "visible".
Good luck and lets hope it's not "Per aspera ad astra".
Better "Per aspera ad astra" than "Per defectum, in flammas"
...their rockets will "break to zero velocity"
It probably makes more sense in Chinese.
I'm surprised at the way they were doing it. I'd think they'd have a backdoor into the telco to do this, but apparently this location info normally gets sent out of the country and they just had to intercept it? WTF?
That's what makes it legal. They are intercepting foreign communications, not domestic.
No one forces you to use commercial airlines when you travel.
Um... What other airlines are there? Military, perhaps, but I don't expect that they take on civilian passengers very often.
we're watching history in the making right now even though many of us don't realize it.
I'm not. History was removed from my basic cable lineup.
Blessed be those who initiate lively discussions with the hopelessly mute, for they shall be known as Dentists.
