I'm enjoying a sugary caffeinated beverage right now. And you shouldn't have any right to tell me I can't. If you think otherwise, FOADIAF.
You so need to think of your bloodpressure!
I'm guessing there is also caffeine in that drink, am i right?
If you don't buy the other stuff, they will not make extra variants for you. Chicken Egg problem. Unfortunately the other party will never change unless you do.
So, for tonight:
Couscous, courgette, sun dried tomatoes, olives, feta, onion, paprika, small portion of ground meat, spices. 10 minutes tops.
Whole wheat pasta (penne), salmon (if necessary from tin, tastes worse) sweet anise, sour cream, onion, olive oil, peppers. The pasta takes 10 minutes, so i guess 15 min max.
This sunday im making pumpkin soup. lots of onion, garlic, Indonesian spices, tomatoes (from a can, i admit, sorry). some sour cream, some cheese. servers like 10 portions, so we'll eat 2-3 times from this pot the coming week. Takes a bit more time, but saves me a lot of time later on. Serve with some bread and tappenade.
I can go on for quite a while like this.
You need some stuff fresh, say weekly groceries, the rest is all storage cabinet.
We all work hard, and don't take our time to cook and even more taking too little time to really enjoy our food.
Come on, make a real meal, use a smaller plate, sit down at the table, not the telly, open up a bottle of wine, but drink only 1 glass together with the wife. Enjoy your meal.

For several years the anti-fructose movement has been making noise and has been showing increasing insight is the underlying mechanisms. Famous example spokesperson of this movement is Dr Lustig, and googling his name alone gives a boatload of references.
An MD claiming a single chemical is mostly responsible for obesity? BS detector starts ticking up...
BS readings confirmed.
wrong way around.
Fructose is causing metabolic syndrome and partly responsible for weight gain by sabotaging leptin response.
He claims obesity isn't the problem. People don't die from fat, they die from metabolic syndrome.
Of course Coca Cola is the personification of "evil big food" and they will do whatever it takes to keep making money as water running from the tap. Its amazing how much money one can make from selling flavoured sugar water plus some advertising.
But the negative effects of increased sugar intake is nothing new. For several years the anti-fructose movement has been making noise and has been showing increasing insight is the underlying mechanisms. Famous example spokesperson of this movement is Dr Lustig, and googling his name alone gives a boatload of references.
But where is the response from society (not from some smart commercial brands), where is the education in schools, in children's TV programs, in popular scientific programs, in journals being read by large percentages of the population. And when will we start listening to this??!!
We still buy all this processed junk, with the bright coloured labels promising everything and being "fat free". We as a society have to immediately start buying other food products. More "real" unprocessed foods, and please leave those products with added sugar packaged in plastic in the store. Spend more time buying, cooking, eating and ENJOYING this food.
The industry will make whatever we buy. Self regulation from their side is an illusion.
So WE need to change.
This is getting to the point where you can use this as a non volatile RAM drive
Off course there are hospitals and doctors over here that are being paid by the patient/treatment. But, like i said, the same work ethos applies to those who are not financially inclined to come. That indicates that the financial interest is not the (main) reason for this behaviour. I see this in all civil servant doctors as well.
We are talking single / couple of days sick leave here, having the flu, headache or diarrhoea. not long term illnesses / disability.
# Do you have a limited number of sick days? This is Europe talking,, Sick day's ?? you mean you guys have a limited number of days you are allowed to be ill? That's sick. You have to be away from work a lot / long period at one stretch to get into trouble. Disabilty laws kick in at that point. Whole different ballgame concerning financial interests. Having no sick days or having 10 during the year doesn't influence a penny on my wages.
# Do you have to take vacation days after those sick days are exhausted? Sorry??, again. You have to take up vacation days due to being ill? Ps, I have 5 weeks holiday/year.
# Are you compensated at the year's end for unused sick days? see above, no.
# Are your sick days and vacation days all combined into a single PTO group? no
# Does your hospital not keep enough staff on hand to cover for sick doctors? no, barely enough even when everybody is working. Being ill can lead to patients not being seen on the out patient clinic that day and chances are they will have to wait for an open spot on the schedule. Off course the severity of the patients condition influences the amount of delay. Surgery is being cancelled sporadically. Europe may be social, but not communistic
# If you said "Yes" to any of these questions then there are financial interests at play.
no financial interest
You do realise you are often infectious to others before you are aware of being ill or even becomming ill at all? For instance for the flu, noro or chicken-pox. The whole "come in and infect everybody in the office / clinic" argument is really weak. People get sick via all sorts of routes.
I am a medical doctor, and work in a government owned hospital. That makes me kind of a civil servant. I get paid per month, not per patient/treatment.
I completely recognize my colleagues and myself in this report. One doesn't call in sick, unless one has 39,5C fever or isn't capable of driving the car to work.
Financial interest has nothing to with this, your remark reflects your utter ignorance for the matter and lacks any form of humour.
just anounce you'll implement Systemd support, they'll fork you in a minute
Ye gods I'm so tired of this 'joke' cropping up every so often. It wasn't really that funny 12 years ago, either.
i still find the dying remark funny.
And the more time has passed, the funnier it gets. As still being around and still being a relevant OS proves how silly the study was at the time.
So i hope we can still laugh about it in 30 years or so.
The debt discussion quickly moved to a health insurance discussion, as that is clearly one of the major contributors of this issue.
Slashdot has always been a mostly US centric site, but also has a significant world wide group.
As a European reading this discussion, but i recon it is so for Canadians and some larger parts of Asia as well: I'm laughing my ass off!
Oh man, you guys have seriously fu****ed up your system.
All this spastic anti-socialism, american dream, Obamacare and your corporate controlled democracy have made you end up with this monster.
Believe me, our systems are also far from perfect, but no where near the level of idiocy described here.
for me, 500 $ max own risk, rest 100% insured. no limit. 98% of the population is insured. regardless of income, age or job. I worry over other stuff. Not my health bill.
