That's not what average means. You mean "median".
So, equality is your basis for eat or don't eat? Excellent. Because not all humans are created equal, either, as is quite evident by your comment. So, barbecue sauce, or a nice sweet glaze for you. Can't decide. Are you muscular, or more on the well padded side?
Real Italian or Greek pizza has always been heart healthy.
Meh. If I want pizza, I want New York style, mozzarella loaded deliciousness. It's not Italian food. It's New York food. And as I said, I'm only pretending it's healthy. I don't actually care: the thing is, it's awesomely delicious. I grew up eating the stuff on 171st street in Manhattan; since then I've had pizza all over the world and I'm sorry, but NYC pizza embodies the absolute peak of pizza-to-palette-pleasure technology.
If I want greek food, frankly, I want a Gyro: lightly fried pita with slow roasted meats, greens, tomato slices, a few Greek olives, a peperoncini, tzatziki sauce, and a glass of fresh lemonade to go with.
When I want Italian food, there's a huge variety I enjoy, but not, repeat not, Italian style pizza. A lovely marinara over pasta? Sure. I'm still trying to find a sauce as marvelous as one I encountered near Port Jervis, New York in the 1970's, at a mall hole-in-the-wall called "Two Brothers." It was a sauce with a lot of finely chopped garlic, some obvious herbs, quite thick with content other than the liquid of the sauce. That was just wonderful stuff. I had a meal in Naples once, a pasta dish, that was graced with a light sauce not at all like our alfredo, just marvelous. Little place on a back street. Probably never run into it again. Sigh. But there's lots of good Italian-American food I enjoy, so all is not lost!
Right, right. For instance, you, as an animal, would probably be excellent with some good barbecue sauce. No need to be concerned about about your opinion of the matter, or your feelings consequent to your demise, or the impact on anything that might depend upon you.
And I have just the place on my wall to mount your severed head once the taxidermist is done with it. I've got this great hat I want to top you off with.
We never really tried the food pyramid.
That's good, since it was made up by a guy using late 1800's assumptions, Wilbur Olin Atwater. We've moved on a bit; we actually understand a bit about body chemistry and metabolism now. Best thing to do with the original food pyramid is set it on fire and grill some steaks with it. There's a more recent version though that may be a little more trustworthy.
PS -- this is worth spending some time researching for your own benefit (and household, etc.) I just found a couple of representative links that didn't, as far as I could tell at a quick glance, actually promote craziness. Watch out for old info.
Yeah, on 1200 you'd be bedridden in no time.
No. Those numbers are derived from averages. There are metabolisms that operate at both extremes as well. There's a predictable distribution of metabolic rates. Some folks are fine on 1200/day. Also, some people can eat a lot more calories than the average person and not gain any weight; body simply refuses to metabolize more than it needs and out it goes. All this before the variables of exercise, ambient temps, clothing, etc.
Eating only veggies makes no more sense than eating only meats.
Until one considers the animals being eaten. That's a whole 'nuther ball of wax.
Then again, most vegetarians are blissfully unaware of the death toll in every field of vegetables at harvest time. Only look in the tracks of the harvesting machinery if you have a strong stomach. And seriously, to everyone: wash your veggies well with non-toxics before you cook them.
Crust, tomato sauce and cheese. And mushrooms. And, believe it or not, sauerkraut. Local place had that on the menu, tried it as a joke, joke was on me. Delicious. My lady, who is much more of a meat eater than I am, has it as canadian bacon rounds with sauerkraut. But me, I like the meat free version better anyway.
Pizza -- for as long as this fad lasts, I can pretend it's the perfect food. Yay!
"laser based" is irrelevant, except as a way to get the quantum effects.
And even if those effects are real, I'm guessing that 'quantum' is not able to provide stronger encryption, only to make it easier to *break* encryption.
Tell your boss to spend the money on a new yacht instead.
That sounds familiar, and of course makes great sense WRT the name. And it makes even less sense that this foodstuff would be "made of people" when the name is cobbled out of (soy)a and (lent)ils.
Linux is on a roll. After conquering the smartphone space, Android is now dominating the tablet space.
Android is only "linux" in the sense that a poor man is a rich man. They're both men, but the former has so many limits compared to the latter that the day to day experience is in no way similar. Linux, the computer OS we consider on the same playing field as OSX and Windows -- and what people almost always mean when they say "linux" -- is on no more of a roll than usual. Until (unless... I really don't expect it to happen) there is an actual linux available for the phone where the legit owner of the phone can have root and can get at everything there is in the software and hardware, it's only linux in name -- the poor man. There are many reasons why the corporate and political world wants to keep us away from the actual telephone and radio hardware, and I can't see those going away -- they're worth far too much money. So that rules out the phones. Most tablets are similarly locked down, but with less reason, and again, I just don't see them as "linux." I can do a lot more -- a lot more -- on my linux desktops than I can on my various android tablets. And of course, I can't do much under iOS, either.
For very basic programming, the core is functional decomposition (breaking things down into manageable components). This is a hearty part of critical thinking, and problem solving.
Having more people familiar with that would help solve a lot of things.
...sounds suspiciously like what (Baudot) teletypes had been doing for decades around 1970, the approximate date TFS indicates.
Seems broad, all right... and obvious, and like there would be prior art.
But since it's secret... who knows.
in the modern GUI realm, Omni Outliner. I have it under OSX and on the iPad. I use it *constantly* for all manner of information.
In the shell, midnight commander. first thing I do when I open a shell is "mc" or "sudo mc" and off I go.
Aside from those, the components of c and c++ application creation (can be compiler and linker only, mc has a nice editor and I don't require a debugging environment though I'm happy to use 'em when they are available), and Python. Without these, there would be little point in me even owning a desktop or laptop computer.
Coming in dead last, a web browser.
But... soylent green was not people, nor was it any more than a minor technical ornament to the story (Make Room, Make Room, by Harry Harrison.) Soylent was actually made of krill or algae or some such. Hollywood is really good at screwing up otherwise fine stories.
