for those keeping score at home, that's $33/year
If you had bought it two years later in 2000 it would have probably been $33 total. Also, having mostly worked in places that use Aeron chairs, IMO Ikea chairs are more comfortable than Aerons.

Maybe it won't kill you but acetaminophen is a really bad drug to gently caress around with so I'm inclined to side with nbsd on this one.

Insomnia is cool because if you don't get enough sleep you're probably going to increase your chances of getting alzheimers but if you take a lot of sleeping medications you're also going to increase your chances of getting alzheimers. Luckily thinking about how important sleep and the fact that you're not getting enough is is a great way to fall asleep easier.

I think if you've had a legit bad reaction to a flu shut (and not like "I think the flu shut gave me the flu") you're excused from getting one.

no joke though morbid obesity is one of those things i find profoundly disturbing
When you think about it, with all the health effects that have been shown to be linked to weight, you probably don't even need to be morbidly obese to be "morbidly obese" in the sense that your weight will kill you; just being overweight may be enough. Doubtless this will make things less disturbing for you.

Anyway sometimes you think a product has not been made in decades, and then you go to a shop somewhere you don't normally go to, and they're right there, and in the same packaging as in 1986. (The middle one is obviously newer packaging, dunno why):

The Roman cookbook of Apicius (4th century) has a recipe for deep-fried chicken called Pullum Frontonianum.[1]

The American English expression "fried chicken" is first recorded in the 1830s, and frequently appears in American cookbooks of the 1860s and 1870s.[2] The origin of fried chicken in the southern states of America has been traced to precedents in Scottish[3][4][5] and West African cuisine.[6][7][8][9] Scottish fried chicken was cooked in fat (though unseasoned)[3][5] while West African fried chicken was seasoned[3][4][9] (but battered[7][10] and cooked in palm oil).[6] Scottish frying techniques and African seasoning techniques were used in the American South by African slaves.[3][4][5][9] Fried chicken provided some means of an independent economy for enslaved and segregated African-American women, who became noted sellers of poultry (live or cooked) as early as the 1730s.[11] Because of this and the expensive nature of the ingredients, it was, despite popular belief, a rare dish in the African-American community[6] reserved (as in Africa) for special occasions.[10][8][9]

There is absolutely nothing wrong with fast food and the people wandering around hooting and hollering about how it's debased and how it "makes them sick" are virtue signaling classist shitheads.

McDonalds has one of the cleanest and most efficient supply chains to ever exist in human history.

Taco bell is ground beef with significant vegetable filler (which isn't a bad thing imho), tortillas, cheese, tomatoes, and lettuce in various configurations. It's basic, normal food. If you can get uppity over something that simple you can get uppity over anything.

The fact that people will piss and moan about how 'unhealthy' McDonalds is before going to some local place and slamming down some 1800 calorie burger of the week and three beers will never stop being funny to me.
Yeah. Also people complaining about "processed" food but not being able to define the term coherently or explain why cheap food that has a certain step performed in its production is "processed" but fancy food that has an identical step performed in its production is magically not "processed."

I've had takeout maybe once a month at most for the last year, and I've been cooking everything from scratch basically, but I'm under no illusions that that magically makes it healthy.

Salt and preservatives aren't inherently bad for you.
Most salt/preservatives probably aren't (salt isn't if you don't have high blood pressure but that's probably like half of americans) but IIRC the one thing that might be is nitrites, although that's just stuff like bacon (including "uncured" bacon) rather than mcdonalds hamburgers.

if junk food was bland, we would eat less of it, and it would be less bad for us because of that



a sad reality is that if you want to lose weight a very good approach is to make your food taste much more ordinary
Just make everyone permanently lose their sense of smell. You could probably eliminate the obesity epidemic overnight.
