Often large quantities are difficult for the human brain to conceptualize. When I read in the National Restaurant News that Burger King had sold for 4 Billion dollars, it took me a moment to take it in. Wow. This is unfathomable. What i reflected on: Is it that valuable? Obviously… Yes, the place is frequented and eaten at THIS much. Immediately my brain began running through the amount of meat that is produced to feed into the fast food culture. I believe this is directly related to our obesity epidemic. (if this were grass-fed beef verses corn/soy fed, this number could be lower). This epidemic is directly related to our exorbitant healthcare cost. The real result of eating this diet … Read More

For Some Reason..

I cant remember the last time i went to church. I have a lot of reasons why; the laziest and most pathetic is my inability to be a ‘morning person’. As in: ‘Please dont talk to me’. 😉 Not to make light of the situation though. Words cant express my admiration for those people, even slight jealousy towards those that believe the Bible to be a word-for-word truth; I really sincerely wish I did.

Listening to a preacher reminds me of the grade-school game of sitting in a circle and passing a whisper around till it reaches its origin completely misconstrued. Im not … Read More

Actually, I wanted to title this “Sometimes You Let Shit Slide” Got to thinking this a couple weeks ago after the People of Walmart started saturating the web. Yeah, its sad. It’s sad the way people advertise their own disregard. Its sad how one person doesnt respect themselves enough to think as a sole individual, they can have impact. We think one person doesnt make a difference until they look, act or behave stupidly. Our electronic-verse makes everything viral, and this is in direct proportion to our reactionary behavior. We have lost the simple act of thinking before we speak, thinking before we judge. We are past school-yard antics of ‘sticks and stones may break my bones…’ Since everything said … Read More

Time cover: ‘The Real Cost of Cheap Food … Why the American food system is bad for our bodies, our economy and the environment,’ by Bryan Walsh: ‘The crop is heavily fertilized-both with chemicals like nitrogen and with subsidies from Washington. Over the past decade, the Federal Government has poured more than $50 billion into the corn industry, keeping prices for the crop-at least until corn ethanol skewed the market-artificially low. That’s why McDonald’s can sell you a Big Mac, fries and a Coke for around $5-a bargain, given that the meal contains nearly 1,200 calories, more than half the daily recommended requirement for adults. … [F]ruits and vegetables don’t receive the same price supports as grains.
