Apparently Tyson bribed Bruno before the fight for the win... they were

But, my dear, this is always the best time to push someone. As you are
standing there at the edge, wondering if you can fly, a good shove will
usually give you the answer. (Unless, of course, you are a sheep, in
which case you will simply fall off, and land with your feet sticking up
in the air, if you can be seen at all from above....)

And as we all know, the secret of flying is to fall down, and miss.
As I recall the trick is to be suddenly distracted at the last moment.
This sounds a little difficult to put into practice, but again I'd
suggest asking John "Knows All Tells Some" Bayko about it.

Yes we are all falling, not only in a relative way but also a
spiritual sort of way. "The fall of man" meaning our tendancy towards
sin. Now the Catholic church has ranked these sins in order of their
severity. I tend to think of a row of nuns holding up scorecards
giving me 5.5 5.9 5.6 5.4 and 6.0 from the Russian nun. The Russians
always grade hard.

Well, we really aren't falling up *or* down, more like towards. For
those of you who don't know (but everyone on pinecone knows anyways)
Newton's laws state that the natural state of everything is rest or
movement in a straight line. Unfortunately, that big mean Sun, the bully
of our Solar system decided that we don't neet to be at a natural state
and thus decided to pull us. Luckily for us, we can hold our own as
well, and by realizing that Mm
F = ---
d^2 we can feel relatively safe that we
won't spiral into the Sun anytime soon.

Encouraged, actually, but we won't teach you the secret handshake until

That reminds me of something I saw the other day. I was walking down

on the front a large sticker proclaimed 'So fresh, they're alive!'

Oddly, Nate's post has not shown up here yet, but I will address it
anyway. Having been a vegetarian for seven years, I cam safely say that
cardboard is not a staple of the vegetarian diet. I also had a thriving
little business for a short time selling sprouting jars during the same
phase of my life. Try a hefty clump of radish sprouts sometime.

As for Mr Bayko's comment, I think this would only happen if you also eat
a lot of mud, or mud pies.

The veggies around these parts seem to have absolutely have no problem
mastering hypocrisy and denial, by and large. I can hardly wait for the
next one to bring up Consolidated's principle of "speciesism" in light of
Nate's sprout findings:-D. BTW, a friend told me of an anti-vegetarian web

browser could not lead me to it<waaa>.

Hmm. Interesting, you must have turned veggie around the same time as I
did. I don't eat particularly intelligently, myself. I live on a lot of
junk food. Sure it takes years off your life, but they're the ones at
the end, anyway.
Cardboard is getting a bad rep. It's got a nice woody, salty taste, and
a good corrugation makes for nice texture. Not that I would know.... :)
My mother eats rice cakes and such, which I find very cardboardian (my
own ugly non-word :) ), although I think cardboard actually has more
taste. Again, not that I would know...... :)

You are what you eat, so I must be a vegetable. Or more accurately, a
potato chip. :)

I recall a student once, for fun, compared the nutrition of a
breakfast cereal by feeding it to one rat, and the cardboard box it
came in to another. It turned out that the rat that ate the box was
healthier.
Of couse, rats can digest cellulose and humand can't, but it was a

Only the unsalted ones taste like cardboard. Of this I am certain.
Don't ask for details; I might have to tell a lie. And cardboardian is a

put out the OED (not to be confused with QED).

I know very little about 'healthy' cereals. I'll just as soon have
a Pizza Pop for breakfast as anything else. I don't believe in
following that corporate-planned "you *must* eat cereal for breakfast,
because nothing else in the universe can be eaten for breakfast - WE
SAY SO"... D'ya know that Kellogs is a bigger company than Intel, and
they got that way simply by convincing people that eating breakfast
cereal is normal? A hundred years ago it wasn't normal - in fact, it
would've been considered downright la-dee-dah to eat mushed flakes
soaking in milk instead of scrambled eggs or oatmeal.

There was more to it than just advertising (or should I say false
advertising). Other than promoting improved physical powers the cereal
makers promoted convenience. With out the added convenience, I don't
think people would have switched to cereal. Look at what other food
items have taken off..... fast-food (hamburgers, pizza), frozen food,
Bacardi Breezers, to name a few..... Yes advertising did its part but
changing the world 180 degrees? IMHO it was more like 60 degrees.

Bleah! Ptwww! Pish-tush! [short "u" sound on that last one, please]
Cold pizza is only for those without a working microwave oven (or
traumatized tastebuds)! And baked Smarties (US, not Canadian) with maple
syrup rule the breakfast nookŠKellogg's, step off!

Nonsense. Obviously you've been buying cheezy pizza. (I'm sorry, really
I am, that comment just couldn't be halped.) Anyway, a decent pizza will
taste marvelous when it's cold (assuming of course, that it's been fully
cooked at some previous point in time) and not full of fatty meat. For
the record, I do *not* have a microwave (I've an irrational fear of them),
nor have I traumatized tastebuds (delightfully alliterative phrase).

I've discovered that if you squeeze a styrofoam packing peanut
exactly midway from the long ends, exactly vertically to the shiny
flat surfaces, they will explode with a very noticable 'pop'ing sound,
92.4% of the time.
I have yet to fins a practical application for this, however.

I thought Pilsbury Pizza Pops (actually frozen panzarotti with
creative fillings) were American... the Canadian version would be
McCain's (McCain Ellios, in the U.S - I've seen the commercials) Pizza
Pockets.
Either way, the idea is to stick pizza stuff into either a folded
crust ('Pops) or a bun ('Pockets)... and heat 'em up in a microwave
when you're hungry.

Yesterday, I had a fajitas-stuffed Pizza Pop for breakfast/lunch
(I got up late), and french toast for supper. Normally that'd be
reversed, but my mother wasn't feeling well - don't ask me where the
logic is in that reasoning because there isn't any - it just kind of
jumbled into place that way.
I muched on a bowl of puffed wheat before going to bed.

Hah!, there ya go, no microwaveŠ.:) SoŠwhat's a decent pizza? I've gone
from Arinelle to Zachary's, veg., "chez" only, and meated, NONE of which
tasted any better than desperation-choice cold, but all OK to stellar hot.

(HmmmŠis there such a thing as vegan pizza?)

Up next - why people actually argue about why one type of fizzy
carmel-y cola flavoured bottle of water is *better* than another
identical type of fizzy carmel-y cola flavoured bottle of water.
