Family size is 2 of the dishes, so 4 servings total for $10 (on Tuesdays, anyway, plus you get breadsticks which I didn't look up the stats on). Each serving has 70-90% of your daily sodium intake. It's ridiculous.

Yeah, I don't think the replica will suffer the fate of its predecessor. I honestly doubt it'll get that far.

Former Israeli Premier Assails Netanyahu on Iran
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/30/wo...u-on-iran.html
Another one against Netanyahu's way about Iran and Palestinian. The reaction of the audience to this didn.t really surprised me thought.

If there's an electronics store that has TVs for sale, they're mostly LCD (they might have a few plasma displays, but that's a bit rare these days) and all of them are at least 1280x720 resolution (most will probably be 1920x1080). And that's really all an HDTV is, a "high definition television" which is just a fancy way of saying "has at least 720 vertical pixels."

@ Endless Soul: movies that you watch on the big screen in the theatre are generally made at even higher resolutions than HD so the resolution has nothing to do with what you were experiencing.
What I think you experienced is something similar to what was described in the article, there's modern TVs now that can artificially increase framerates (just like the article talked about The hobbit being shot at twice the framerate of a usual movie) so one TV had that feature and you had the same reaction as the guy in the article.
It's a feature that's nice if you like playing videogames and watch sports but is completely useless if all you do is watch movies.
Sorry for the late response guys, it was a very busy weekend.

I admit I'm pretty new-TV illiterate. Mostly because I currently don't have a TV and haven't had one in about 4 year. My last one was CRT. All I can say is that both TVs were identical, and playing the exact same scene of Battle: Los Angeles, yet the one on the left looked "normal" and the one on the right was clearer/brighter, causing the effects to really stand out and look fake. It almost had a daytime soap look to it. It wasn't just me and my friend seeing this. The entire group that had gathered around (10+ people) were all pretty much saying the same thing.

I wouldn't call Ammonium Hydroxide treated beef meat, nor hormone laden chicken, or sterioid treated pork.

The reason Americans are fat is--besides the obvious dangers of MOE --due to the fact that the majority of Americans drink soda.
Soda is basically thick, flavored, corn-syrup and carbonated water.
Corn-Syrup is being shown to have serious health risks.This is why so many Granolas (health freaks) who do enjoy a soda now and then (as a treat or mixed with alcohol once in a while) have taken to drinking what are called "Retro-Sodas" that contain real sugar rather than Corn-Syrup.

The other culprit is the whole "Partially-Hydrogenated Vegetable Oils" and/or trans-fats.
Non-processed fats are far better for the human body...doh!

In short, it is once again the evil corporations (like Monsanto, ConAgra, etc.) who have found a way to feed the sheeple with whatever chemically laden victuals are cheapest to produce.

And the congresscriters are more than willing to accept whatever the lobbists of these companies tell them to do, so long as the payoff helps get them re-elected to office.

It is interesting to me that as Americans wake up to the fact that it is the big food corporations that are poisoning them with processed garbage, the government is clamping down on small farms using everything from child labor laws to the new "Food Safety" Act to do it.

Are Chinese sailors the prime ingredient for soylent green? I know that food prices are rising, but why is everyone else around the world arresting Chinese sailors?

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Because they are barbarians who, contrary to the supposed civilized civilization of the Great Chinese Nation, steal other nation's resources and then accuse others of being barbaric for arresting thieves.

Note: Sarcastic joke

Ah, but what grade of Solyent Green is it? There is Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Indian, a whole mess of them.

I wouldn't recommend the English grade due to reasons of taste, nor the American as its quite fatty.

Yup. A lot of their mass-transit trains have been copied directly from their Japanese and German counterparts with a few minor modifications. It takes a certain kind of audacity that only China can get away with it and call it their own "unique" technological improvement.

Now that you two mentioned about flavours with condiments, I wonder if we can make "tofu" out of the soylent green.....then we'd have Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Indian, and all sorts of different flavours of tofu. I know Xellos enjoy large servings of "tofu" at once (given his sigs).

I will have Korean "tofu", the texture is always soft and white. (if you know what I mean).

Well, I guess it'll still be better than Chinese tofu anyway. Hell knows what goes in those...

Interestingly enough, Koreans would have fewer such materials than Americans or Japanese.

Yes, but the kinds of surgeries matter: It's mostly getting double eyelids and cutting off parts of the jaw. It's the foreigners coming to Korea for other jobs that make the rate so high.
