RE: Ranting corner
Also, just because someone is overweight doesn't mean they aren't sick and don't need a scooter (also doesn't mean their health problems are from being fat, there are illnesses and medications that cause weight gain, hormonal problems, etc). As for food prices, yeah, healthy food costs more. It's unlikely that many people can afford much of it if they are using food stamps. And while I don't condone eating only twinkies (for anyone), I can understand it to a degree.

Speaking of unhealthy foods though, I just ordered a pizza and breadsticks, waiting for that to arrive.

Like Jerry Lewis when he was taking prednisone. That shit is awful for that when taken for a long time.

It's true...most of fattening, processed, salt-laden foods are waaaay cheaper than well healthful alternatives. Even frozen foods are hideously expensive.

That said...I love pizza!

And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

I wish I could pull out those annoying, tiny thorns sticking out of the pink flesh in my right eye. I'm so sick of my eye feeling poked. -.- I don't like that my shins hurt when I run either.

I've been on prednisone for 7 years, have to see an endocrinologist to get off of it or I'll go into adrenal crisis, have to see a therapist because it aggravates mental problems and can cause psychosis, and it fucks with your weight, especially high doses for long periods of time. It also gave me cataracts (just had surgery for these), macular pucker, high blood pressure, and osteoporosis.

Yeah back at school you could get a soda, fries and a double cheese burger for less than the cost of the chicken caesar salad (romaine lettuce, croutons, grilled chicken, shitty parm cheese, dressing). No reason for that other than subsidizing the corn and pushing the grease. McDonalds(and places like it) forced the aggregation of agriculture and created a world ruled by corn feed and corn syrup, where beef is cheaper than greens.

Oh great, another 'severe' earthquake...
Shallower then the big-ish one this time last week.

They better not close off the CBD again! Angry

Oh and lovely, there's now volcanic activity warnings...
Isn't this country just grand?
I'm gonna shake to death and then I'm gonna get blown the fuck up, just lovely.
