    Default Bomb burgers!?

    I hadn't heard of this issue, but apparently the food industry is
    screwing with our food again, putting god knows what in it, this time:

    http://tinyurl.com/793gq96

    Doesn't this part give you the warm fuzzies?

    "Besides being used as a household cleaner and in fertilizers, the
    compound releases flammable vapors, and with the addition of certain
    acids, it can be turned into ammonium nitrate, a common component in
    homemade bombs. It's also widely used in the food industry as an
    anti-microbial agent in meats and as a leavener in bread and cake
    products. It's regulated by the U.S. Agriculture Department, which
    classifies it as "generally recognized as safe.""

    Sure, pal! Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase, "blow chunks",
    which I think I'm gonna. 8|

    I suppose actually naming whatever you are trying to scare people about this
    time would be too much to ask.

    Any bakery selling their day old stuff is cutting into their fresh
    baked goods business, and are thus kinda foolish. No bakery or donut
    shop I ever worked at sold day old stuff for this reason.

    My ex-boss once told me about meeting up with the homeless guy that hung around our office. The bakery next door had just thrown a bunch of baked goods into the dumpster and the guy had climbed into it and was having a good old time. He was just covered with pie and when he saw my boss he said with the biggest ****-eatting grin "Apple pie... It's delicious!" My boss didn'tsay that he gave a thumbs up but I like to imagine that he did. ✌

    What about the nuclear power plant coolant which
    is the main ingrediant in coffee and soda? It's
    also used for reconstituting powdered milk and
    from-concentrate orange juice for kids!

    I first worked in the bakery at Venture stores, and the sweat bees out
    at the dumpster knew me in the Summer, when I'd dump the trays of old
    baked goods. They would fly all around me as I dumped the stuff out.
    People would ask "Aren't you afraid you'll get stung?" and I'd say
    "No, they know me and like me!" cause I swear they did!

    Late in the donut shop when Bryan was in dire straits for whatever
    reason, I'd put some old donuts in a box for him and set it on top of
    the dumpster. No sense in making him dig for them!

    What a nice guy. Being an angry punk guitarist never paid much, I guess.

    BTW, I think that it's going to get a little crazy with the GG/Usenet
    postings. It is my belief that the Usenet wars have just begun. Don't
    blow a gasket. :-)

    In the band I was in at the time, I didn't play guitar, though I did
    use one to compose. I was more an angry punk vocalist. I never
    played Rock'n Roll with the goal of making money. I went through this
    time of craziness where I quit my job right at Thanksgiving, and spent
    Dec '79-Feb '80 homeless and unemployed. It was a crazy thing to do.
    One night I slept in the snow when it was well below zero F. I'm
    lucky that I didn't die.

    I hope all the fat in those donuts helped fuel your internal furnace
    while you "slept in the snow when it was well below zero F". How "well
    below zero F" was it? What kind of sleeping bag/additional insulation
    did you have? I know it hardly ever gets that far below 0F in STL, so
    I'm once again thinking you are aggrandizing yourself, Bryan. Was it
    cold? I'm sure! Did you sleep in the snow? In some respect, I'm sure.
    Was it "well below zero F"? Define well.

    Actually it was Dec. '78-Feb '79, because it was the first of the 5
    times I quit Venture. It got really cold that January.

    I got into the northwest corner of where the kindergarten rooms were
    at Watson School and I piled up snow on the other side to make sort of
    an igloo to block the wind.
    http://www.almanac.com/weather/histo...uis/1979-01-15
    Very soon after that, I moved into "The Cave," which was what I called
    the storage locker in Shira's apartment building basement. It had box
    springs and mattresses stacked to about 15-16 inches from the
    ceiling. The ceiling was way too low to roll over or sleep on my
    side. I lived in there for several weeks, and on the day that Shira's
    dad moved out, her mom invited me to move upstairs. By then I had
    gone back to Venture, and could help with the rent.

    -8F is NOT "way below zero F". It's significant, but =<-40F is IMHO
    "way below".

    And I don't think I was feeding you donuts then. I think I was still
    working at Venture then, and living at my mommy and daddy's house.

    To make money, you'd probably have to learn the rock classics from the
    60's and 70's and maybe 80's. You just don't seem like the type... and
    that's good. :-)

    One thing's for sure, sleeping in the snow would pretty much mean
    certain death for me. I guess our homeless folks here have it a whole
    lot easier than yours.
