Bahhh cheap propaganda from those corporate dogs who just want a market edge!

I do believe that eating Fast Food on a moderate way is not unhealthy to the body, NOW if you eat fast food Mcdonald like the guy from super size me did... well... that's a different story....

Yeah, I was more referring to the fact that recent research has suggested that serum cholesterol levels are less accurate in predicting heart complications (as well as other cardiovascular diseases) than was previously believed in the medical world. So even if you have 'healthy' cholesterol you can't be sure you are "a-okay", so to speak .

Interesting to hear you were in Worcester, I live in a rural area about an hour from there.

I didn’t not know that, but.... well, lets say, my mom job is of those people who take your body sample (Blood, poop, pee) and analyze them.... Im no doctor, but She says I'm good, I believe my Mommy

One thing, I am aware that eating Junk food (as I believe eating Fast Food, is not necessary the same as Eating Junk Food) in large quantities is not good, but damm!!! Those burguers sure are tasty! is really hard for me to believe some people find it gross.

Not sure if this was posted yet, but I choose Home-Cooking over Fast-Food

I've heard rumors that Fast-Food Restaurant's food does not really break down once consumed, so when they are dissolving into your body, they remain in your thighs, or stomach. If that is truly the case, that will somewhat explain why the majority of U.S citizens are getting mocked secretly by other countries, and when a U.S citizen orders something in a French Restaurant, the waiter gives them a "Super Size" meal or something close to that. It also explains why later on you will eventually build up from all the food you ate at those restaurants.

But this is merely a thing I have heard.

So you don't read science because of that?

Corporate dogs don't always market "propaganda". It is just that you need to prudently double-check your sources before stepping into a belief.

Funny though, marketing science may be lucrative and spreading knowledge, but it apparently created a generation of can't-be-bothered who rebelled for the sake of it and seemingly took the greatest gift of the human race and threw it away : curiosity / inquisition.

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.

I've said my thing. But I eat fast food from time to time. Of course, a large fry and a medium sized sweet tea is hardly obese material. I hate the thing, but the field gives me something to do. But god, I don't want to put up with anymore green beans for awhile.

Cool thing about fields? Home cooking. Hell, it doesn't really require cooking - shake the apple tree, watch your head and watch the ripe ones fall. Clean 'em up and give the rotten or bug-ridden ones back to the land and that's that.

Wicked good fun, green apples are. Plus they save money. Too bad where I live you can't grow pineapples. Well, where I live I suppose you could grow alot of other stuff. But that's that.

shake a pineapple sometime while going "kufufufu".

But who the heck would eat junk food like that?? Heh don't answer that question, I'm afraid that the answer might not be "No one."

Whenever I get free food, it's either microscopic portions or shit. So no.

I love green apples they are very delicious, but watermelon is better and Mc Donalds sweet tea is epic win

As for me I like both Fast food and home cooking, but home cooking is healthier cause you can control calorie intake and make accurate proportions. Fast Food is good too, but having too much is very bad for the body and is usually very delicious imo especially the MC Donalds chicken snack wraps with ranch dressing.

I see what you did thar Ar and I approve kufufufu

If you like sweet tea and say anything about Mcdiddy's super water downed crap is "epic win" just goes to show you west virginian's are not as southern as you think. Plus everybody knows that the best Fastfood sweet tea in America is either from Cookout or Bojangles.

Also about the topic, if America had street vendors in China I'd eat fast food more often, freshly fried things versus a soppy flavorless burger just doesn't compare. Probably close to the same order of calories but street vendors that serve "fastfood" are actually quite good when it comes to flavor, also would love to have little taqueria's serving fresh fast tacos with authentic mexican flavors.

Nosauz... it's subjective, opinionated. You do know the context and vocabulary meaning of the words... right? No? Yes? You know whatever this Cookout or Bojangles tea is, I'd like to have it sometime.

Apparently not every American knows it then? Oh well, yes. Yes, whatever you say Nosauz. No I'm not being sarcastic, yes Nosauz you are very pretty. Okay, onward and upward.

Never had 'authentic' mexican food, since it has been.. uhh.. lets go with 'improved' and it's liable to be near impossible to find it in West Virginia.

Actually, I don't think I haven't had any food that hasn't been 'American-fied'. Nothing wrong with that, nor anything right with it. But whatever, home cooking is convenient, and fast food is indulgent and good, both rely on the taste of the person on which they prefer and what they like.

So on and so such.

I'm just talking about the south in general, and how sweet tea is supposed to be so sweet you can feel the paralysis in your feet developing. It's not an indictment against you, just found it interesting that a "southern" person would think mcdonalds sweet tea to be exemplary. Oh well. Sorry I made the assumption that you'd know what Bojangles and Cookout are, but they are southern staples.

Oh? I apologize, I figured the next lines would be involved with "Inbreed" or "Moonshiner".

I really haven't left West Virginia, gone to Maryland and Ohio once or twice, but those were pretty short-lived visits.

I've only see Little Ceaser, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, Mcdonald's, afew Chinese restaurants, Ritchie's Pizza house, and a certain steak house whose name unfortunately escapes me at this time...

Nothing but Mcdonald and the local Chinese restaurant and Ritchie pizza house for me. Never seen a Bojangle, if I have I must have forgotten. Also, for the record, I apologize again. In most cases the context of that sort of sentencing was followed by a string of stereotypes. Gomen.

.... I apologize.

Well you have suffered the loss of one of the most indulgent fast food phenomenas of the south. I mean cajun fried chicken breasts in buttery biscuits, sweet tea so sweet your teeth feel like they rot(in a good way), dirty rice, awesome fried chicken that kicks the Colonel in the mouth. I mean the south may have terrible ties to horrible things in the past but man soul food and bojangles are just that good. I actually feel sorry for you because man bojangles is seriously one of the best fast food joints.
