THE FINAL WORD ON NUTRITION

After an exhaustive review of the research literature, here's the final word on nutrition and health.:

Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.

Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
Germans drink beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.
The French eat fois-Gras, full fat cheese and drink red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us

CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like.
Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

Dipped on Red Rumped Swallow today. Zen Ray Primes wouldn't have helped in this case.

Exclamation There's been more final posts than "John Farnhams" Last Time Ever Final Tour (6 or 7)

Whooooaaaa! This thread has dropped to the 3rd page! ...... can't have that now can we?

Well, for you folks fond of knowing what day it is (numerous), it's 10:30am Monday 7th May 2012 here (yes, I can here the cries now - I thought this was over ....), sunny and mild with cloudy periods and a slight chilly breeze, 15*C (59*F for you folks that like everything to be bigger!), but thanks to the wonders of technology in the modern world (teehee), I am able to use my time machine to post this (damn thing doesn't work so well on Lotto numbers though .... :-)

The "Super" Moon at sunset last night was spectacular .....

Well that ends todays, Date, Weather, and Astrological phenomena report ......
(for the rest of you we will return to our normal programming of watching paint dry, and grass grow ......)

It never ceases to amaze me what a diverse world we live in.
Whereas in some countries the Carp is revered as a "Holy Deity" here in poor old Oz, they are a pest species and killed on sight, and made into "Charlie Carp", obviously no-one minds this too much as they seem to have communist tendencies and were a "gift" (kinda like a hospital pass), from the old dart, along with rats, mice, rabbits, foxes, and feral cats ...... umm - yeah, thanks guv

Note: To past Brock from future Brock: You should see the count now bro! that'll really give you something to "scream" about!

(P.S. Brock - you seem to have more personality changes than John Farnham has absolute last time final tours!!) :P

Looks like everyone has a 0.13% chance of winning the final PrimeHD ..... Good Luck ! Over to you Charles ......

Good luck D
You're about to desert us again are you Sal. How lucky you are to have such a place on your doorstep. I don't see how you can be so greedy to have that AND wand the Primes as well

Thank you - I knew you'd see it my way - I'll tell Charles you've dropped out then

The number of people saying they think this is over seems to be slowly increasing. Is it? Can someone find out? Or are we all just going to keep posting every day forever, just in case?

I don't think I've gone through 16 yet, so Sybil still has me beat. :-)

After seeing one of Munch's version of "The Scream" go for $120 million, I just had to have one of them as my avatar.
