To bad we are bringing back debt slavery and indentured servitude ... back to being a crown colony, Huzzah!

Here is what I had for supper ...

Jerk Chicken Salad ... black beans, rice, shredded cheese, lettuce and Jamaican jerk chicken (precooked, sliced, boneless, skinless chicken breast meat)
Side of ... kale, chopped apple and dressing
Desert of ... peanut butter, banana and chocolate smoothie

And no, most of it didn't taste ... just like chicken ;-)

Depending, of course, on the portion size, sounds like a lot of carbs. I gained 80 pounds, in three years(half my previous body-weight in fat, as a result of being prescribed Risperidone(brand name Risperdal), back in 2002-2005. I just weighed-in, last week, at 65 pounds lighter. Carbs are your enemy - not fat. Have you ever been inclined to cut the thick strip of fat off of a steak, and munch on it? No. You give it to the dog. Although fat has more calories-per-ounce, than carbs, a person, generally is much less inclined to gorge on fat, than on carbs. Pasta, bread, starchy vegetables, even fruit - you have to seriously watch the portion size on that shit, or you can get fat. Have no idea, of course, about how fat you are, but just saying, in case anybody else is struggling. 65 POUNDS DUDE! You just can't argue with results!

I know, I seem to be posting a lot of this stuff, in one day, but I have nothing else to do today(even though it's American Independence Day), so here's another one, that shows that John Oliver is not a "Liberal Defense Council" comedian, by the way he fries a retiring Democratic congressman, alive, near the end of the segment:

As the current reincarnation of Laughing Buddha, I have to say, laughter and tears have the same "absolute value," which is essentially, that they are simultaneously the cure for all your "ills," and completely meaningless... :histerical: :sob: :histerical: :sob: :histerical: :sob: :histerical: :sob: :histerical: :sob: :histerical: :sob: :histerical:So sad..."Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha..."

Ideally 25% carbs.  And yes, I have cut fat off my meat/steak.  I prefer my meat lean.  But I find it hard getting to 50% vegetables (25% protein).

Okay...this thread is a little disappointing, in both responses, and views, but you guys have to watch this one too. I couldn't care less, really, about lotteries, because I never play them, and don't gamble, in general. But still, I LAUGHED MY FUCKING ASS OFF, and learned a little something along the way. Right from the opening line, "Lotteries: the second best use of markers, on a ping-pong-ball, since Kermit's eyes..."

Laughing Buddha says, "No idea what you're talking about there, my dear Brother. In this lifetime, I'm still 'The Uneducated Hick,' and really have little interest in learning about my previous incarnations. I'm moving forward."

Being an uneducated...creative thinker???...is the only way, this far along in human history, to approach the goal of being original, since most of my influences are, at worst peripheral cultural ones.

While "uneducated" does not necessarily mean "stupid", it does suggest a lack of understanding the world of facts.  The day is long past when a smart person could basically gain a comprehensive understanding of the world on his/her own.

But deliberately ignoring facts just puts one further left on the bell curve...
