things you didn't learn in college

How did I not learn this in college?

Ramen never seems to come out right, just right, one time to the next.

But soak it for an hour in cold water. Drain. Perfecto!

Eat it cold. Mix it cold into salad. Zap it for 30 secs and it's perfect. Light, firm, not over or under done. Every time.

Amazing.

I learned "character building" as suggested by Grandfather

That’s funny but I knew a very chubby woman that was one of the greatest musicians/singers ever in the Western reserve area of Ohio,

The only reason why she didn’t get mainstream because she was over 300 lb at a short 5’ frame, was such a shame, she is married now he’s doing OK but the world doesn’t know her talents because she was in the middle of obese category due to wheat/gmo farm products that are sold commercially in every store!

It sucks that usa can produce enough food for almost the whole world but not really good for you food!

The Netherlands is the second biggest exporter of food in the world, yet almost noone here is fat.

Being fat is a choice.(edited)

^ For the most part I agree with you, we in the US are inundated with unhealthy choices every day, but there are "whole

" foods, (not the store) that can be bought and you will be fine, but it takes work, so does exercise, and those are NOT things that many here are willing to do. Our lifestyle is so sedentary, (for the most part) we hardly move at all...there are PSA on TV encouraging parents to see to it that their children are active for an hr a day!!! WTF?!? When we were young you could not get us to hold still for an hr a day. There are some who have less choice than others, in many low income area's there is very limited access to fresh produce/fruit etc, more emphasis on processed/canned/fast food crap. Things that are bad for you are very cheap, where quality items come at more of a premium. When I didn't drive I was in very good shape, walking biking etc, once cars came back, I got lazy and ended up with a desk job, in roughly one year went from 185 to 230! No longer have that job, work a much more physical job and in another year hover between 200-205, and striving to go lower, need to exercise more...I cut out all fast food except for a rare treat of White Castle...so addicting and sooo fattening...but mainly easy, drive up/gorge/sleep/expand. :/ For my age, I'm actually considered in good shape, so many my age have guts hanging over their belts and worse...man breasts etc...and I should weigh 15-20 lbs less than I do. I don't eat sweets at all. I just need to exercise even more than my job provides, just super hard to get back in the habit when easier choices surround you. If you are in the habit of biking/walking, do not EVER stop, way easier to stay in shape than to try and get back into shape.

Re: things you didn't learn in college

From about my young 20s like this picture, I always hovered around the 200 pound mark but I had a heavy duty job/jobs that I needed to have a bit of ass on me,

If I was the 165lb the weight the charts said I was supposed to weigh I wouldn’t have enough strength and traction, I basically ate five meals a day to maintain my size,

Good thing I had enough strength and traction because the day before this picture was taken I finally mastered a big hill while dirt riding with the Kawasaki 250 that I never made it up with the Yamaha 125,

But at the top of the hill to my horror was basically a cliff drop off and the bike and I went right down in to it,

It took me well over a hr to manhandle the (268 lb dry wt) Kawasaki back up steep drop off,

I got couple bruises and the kaw got a bent turn signal out of the deal and a lesson was learned! Survey your riding area first before you go flying up a blind hill

Re: things you didn't learn in college

I looked out of curiosity and apparently 30% of food produced is wasted, biggest wasters are:

1 United States of America

2 Australia

3 Denmark

4 Canada

5 Norway

6 Germany

7 United Kingdom

8 New Zealand

9 Malaysia

10 Singapore

(I wont try to shame anyone because CanadaLand is #4 and that would be pot-kettle-black)

Also I found of interest in food production, waste, consumption is the top 10 most obese countries (July 1st, 2017)

United States of America – 109,342,839

China – 97,256,700

India – 65,619,826

Brazil – 41,857,656

Mexico – 36,294,881

Russia – 34,701,531

Egypt – 28,192,861

Turkey – 23,819,781

Iran – 21,183,488

Nigeria – 20,997,494

...and if it has both I would suppose it is double trouble and more expensive...

In other countries this might be more true, but in the US, as Ken said, quality nutritious food is a luxury few can afford. The industrial food lobby is crazy powerful so the food supply chain that exists is unlikely to change without enormous market pressure.

Food deserts are a super common problem in low income areas of the US. Leaving processed foods from convenience and dollars stores as the only options.

It is very difficult to eat good food in this country if you are lower class in a lower class neighborhood.

In the US, attitudes like you've displayed are straight up classist.(edited)

Re: things you didn't learn in college

OP, you are describing cold brew ramen. V hip.

Re: things you didn't learn in college

Ramon noodles isn't really healthy. I used to eat that too. It has a lot of carcinogens appearantly. My noodles cooked perfectly per instructions. Just pour in boiling water and wait a couple minutes for it to soften up.

Re: things you didn't learn in college

I don't know about cancer causing agents, but Ramen is full of sodium, it is delicious though, still heat a cup every once in a while. This is the processed kind not the og stuff which was probably better. I never had any issue making it hot either, as a matter of fact I have a little electric kettle that will boil water in like 2 mins, pour it in, wait 3 mins, open the lid, and enjoy, like everything else, in moderation it will not hurt you.

Re: things you didn't learn in college

Ramen noodles, shrimp, hot dogs, are some of the most unhealthy Foods there are ramen noodles not only has the sodium but if you read the nutritional information it is loaded with fat also shrimp and hot hot dogs are the same is eating a stick of butter thank you cardiologist I can no longer enjoy anything.

did you go to college, don?

Re: things you didn't learn in college

I think we could do more to help educate and enable healthier eating. Schools are a big one too, kids less likely to wanna eat a quinoa bowl if theyre used to pizza and chkn nuggs for lunch. The let's move thing was a nice idea, I don't know really how to do it or make it work better but I think that was a solid move. Cuz there are healthy and inexpensive options, often people don't know, don't like, or don't have access.

W/ the Let's Move, I know a lot of retailers committed to making good food more available, expanding options to more isolated areas, and we also improved the food for troops schools and hospitals which is a start.

Yes, when I was 29 years old and still finishing concrete every day.

Fucksake people, ramen is jus noodles, without all the bullshit, for pennies a serving, if you jus throw away the included packet-o-sodium right off the bat. I have a king sized jug of Mrs Dash on the counter. Give up the salt for Mrs D and your mouth won't know the difference in about a week.

And welcome back to the beginning of the thread.

Mmmm... Shower thoughts. Mrs Dash.. Stacey Dash...handful of shampoo.... must stop..the..urge

...but I'm dating myself, almost literally there for a second. Stacey Dash is what?.. 50 and 230 lbs right now?

Must..get...out of.....the shower

Why is the top button on my shirts the first one to fall off.. and the one that is used the least, by far? I never button my top button.

And why the hell was there a muskrat in the middle of my kitchen floor when I got out of the shower yesterday morning? Cute thing. Pretty docile really. Easily more put out than I was by our circumstance. I had to overturn a trash can and shoo him in with a broom. I let him out outside and instead of bolting for the woods he meandered a little, spotted some tall clover about five feet away, sniffed out some delectable stalks, and calmly started munching. I almost felt like taking him back inside. Always wanted a good natured dog.

Some snooping revealed a basement window screen pushed in.

Over the past 400 years they've been keeping records from experiments all over the world what they didn't tell you in college is the constant they told you we're constant we're not really constant like the 33 ft per second per second directly acceleration rate of gravity was actually agreed upon in 1977 that was an average of all the correlated data but it actually shows definite shift over a course of 200 years also the speed of light is not a constant but another average of correlated data over the course of two hundred years or 400 and they found that it varied and again it was in a curve
