So let's have beans for every meal!"

You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need
You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you're on the street
You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed
And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight
You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking

What an astounding level of stupidity. The only people
who generate methane from eating oligosaccharides are
those who don't eat them often enough to have built up
the necessary enzymes. But the amino acids present in
beans are absolutely essential (literally "essential
amino acids") for people who choose to avoid eating
meat. And as everyone knows, meat animals require seven
times the feed per unit nutrition delivered to the
consumer than if the feed was channeled directly to
vegetarian human food. Thus, eating beans as part of
a scheme to consume less animal protein is far and away
a more green choice than avoiding them out of concern
for methane emissions.

This weekend cooked some home made baked beans > 8 lbs worth. smile


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

Chili without beans is like a world without love.

Ah they just said that so people would become distracted from other, perhaps more pressing matters.

And the american government have set the stage for greater distraction, Legalizing marijuana. Imagine trying to say the above while stoned. It'd take forever

I once dated an oligosaccharide. She was not as sweet as you'd imagine.

Weren't we blaming this on cows, at one time. I still think that flatulent cows are the issue here. I refuse to take the blame. My wife would argue with that, of course.

We really need to raise cows underground and then use the ventilation systems to collect this for clean-burning fuel!
