    Howcome the western cizilization with all its riches and conviniences didn't solve the mysteries of depression any better than countries with poverty and hunger. *Babbles on with the voices in my head*

    Because humans are still humans. Rich or poor, the underlying base is the same.

    Greedy, selfish, and cruel. And that's just the ones without psychopathics tendencies. :p

    Oh man, I've just eaten the best chicken sandwich I'd had in years. They usually aren't quite as delicious when I make them at home, but this one put Burger King to shame.

    Errrr. The fact that you are using Burger King as a comparison automatically removes any credibility here. Burger King and other fast food is not, actually, food. It would be like saying "this is the best poop sandwich ever!"


    (my :2c: anyway. :p )

    Just like peanut sauce. Use traditional ingredients and a touch of the right sambal.

    BK might be fast food, but like all fast food, their burgers are specifically made to be delicious and addictive. Whether or not it's healthy or natural has nothing to do with it.

    Really? Maybe it's different where you live, but over here, I've always found the fast food to be incredibly bland, especially the burgers.

    Well, the fast food restaurants vary wildly from country to country (or different regions in larger countries). Overall, our Burger King (this tiny country can only handle a total of one) makes some pretty decent food. It's not healthy, but I'd be lying if I said I'm not tempted to go every time I drive by.

    By contrast, I haven't gone to McDonald's since my college years. Their food is just horrible for the kind of prices they're asking.

    The burgers made by Macdonalds in the Netherlands are a lot smaller. Every part taste the same. The fries are very salty(just a handful) and the soda is for 50% ice-cubs.

    Burger King is a bit better.

    It is temptation, the fast snack. I resist. My die roll is high enough to take 10.

    But now and then, you roll that dreaded one.

    I'll second Keneth on McD vs. BK here... back when McD started out here 20 years ago, they made pretty decent burgers, nuggets, fries, etc.. I don't know what's changed over the last decade or so, but their food is so bland and not at all tasty that I practically never eat it any more. By contrast, I've only been to BK a few times but I loved their burgers.

    I know of someone who earned her degree in bed ... it was not the same.

    I hated physically going to college. Luckily it wasn't required all that often.

    Chance is a funny thing.
    Was driving to another branch of our company for some annual nonsense and decided to stop in a random town to get some random grub in a pretty random dinner.

    Run into an old childhood friend I haven't seen in 16 years. Wow.

    I'd be more embarrassed to admit I watch Big Brother if I were in your shoes...

    I've never watched Big Brother - I used to watch Survivor for years until I left my husband and realized life was more interesting without it.

    That might not be all you’d have to be embarrassed about.

    *Keneth wakes up wearing frewwesley’s shoes*:

    Keneth: Wait, how did these red stilettos get on my feet?!?
    Us: Yeah, yeah. Like you don’t know.
    Keneth: No, really! I have no idea how they got there!
    Us: Yeah, sure. Those are probably what you wear when you watch Big Brother.
    Keneth: I don’t watch Big Brother! Or wear women’s shoes!
    Us: OK, Keneth, whatever you say. We’re not saying there’s anything wrong with it, and remember, the first step to happiness is accepting who you are.
    Keneth: Burma!
    Us: …Why did you say “Burma”?
    Keneth: I panicked.

    :p

    Mrs Bruno is gone to China for two weeks. T3V1 and T3V2 are trying to kill me -- they seem to think I have the same energy level as their mom. I don't know if I'm going to survive....
