Nothing much for today. I feel like crap (Cold) and am having another “Wouldn’t it be so much easier to be hit my a truck” moment. The only thing that tickled me on the BBC today was an article about junkfood, the irony was truly painful and the last bit really tickled me.

As though to emphasise the size of the task, a documentary (“Super Size Me”) is about to be broadcast in America featuring a person who eats nothing but McDonald’s meals for a month – and who gains 25 pounds in weight.

For the British, that translates into nearly 2 stones.

If McDonalds can make the reverse come true, then they deserve some serious praise. I wonder if everyone will forget their involvement with deforestation if they fix obesity? Probably.

    What the article failed to mention, was that the 25 pounds was PURE muscle – the guy in question basically became a chick magnet and was being laid well and often, as the story goes. So let that be a lesson to you.
