Don't show this to your arteries!

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

It won't affect me :tongue: - as far as I can remember, the last time I ate KFC was in Alice Springs in, let's see, 1988.
But it does make me feel a bit (more) disgusted with them and sorry for their customers.

I think the restaurant should offer free sodas with statins mixed into them with the meal.
In reading the scriptures, there are two kinds of mistakes:
One mistake is to cling to the literal text and miss the inner principles.
The second mistake is to recognize the principles but not apply them to your own mind, so that you waste time and just make them into causes of entanglement.

You know, it's not really that bad.

A McDonalds Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese has 740 Calories (3098 kj,) 42 grams of fat and 1380mg sodium. I have one of these occasionally.

Beware the limited time offer. It was originally intended for a limited time in the US, but we've had it now for nearly a year. Reminds me of the old Jack In The Box commercial with the focus group...

"I understand the meat... and I get the cheese... but what's with the bun?"

Jack charges into the room, "Without the bun you'd have meat and cheese all over your hands!"

<blank stares>

"Okay, we'll look into it."

Hi Bodom

Yesterday I was reading an article about news in, I think, San Antonio. The public face of the Heart Attack Grill, a 'large' young guy whose name escapes me, died suddenly. I'd never heard of the Heart Attack Grill before and was disturbed by some of the menu offerings, such as the 'quadruple bi-pass burger'.
What people put in their mouths, eh?

has a wiki and, rather than taking advantage as you suggest, seems to be doing what it does on account of a provocative marketing strategy. That people without self-control in their eating habits suffer is a matter of course, but suggesting that this or that establishment is cashing in on such impulses is to attempt mind-reading with a pessimistic bias.
