pizza a vegetable, tomato a vegetable... only in USA

Postby Cittasanto » Fri Apr 27, 2012 7:54 pm

OK I am half joking, a tomato is a fruit (look at the seeds) but it is used as a vegetable so the usa courts deamed it a vegetable :juggling:
but congress deeming a pizza a vegetable is stupid! not just stupid, but completely missing what a pizza is...
here is a reuters article on the childhood obesity fight in the USA I just saw
http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/04/ ... ED20120427
I watched the video linked in the top left hand corner


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.
