Breakfast Of Champions

Here's what I had for breakfast this morning -- I calculate it has about 1300 mg of cholesterol:

As the father of my namesake famously said in "Risky Business", "Sometimes you just gotta say 'What the heck'". Do you think that the old or the young are more likely to do things they know aren't good for them just because they feel like it?

I felt like it three or four times a day. Growing hair on my palm never stopped me........

I'd say the breakfast choices are fine. After all you’re supporting businesses throughout the world by your better living through chemistry, ie. Lipitor and other cholesterol lowering medications.

And there's little doubt your co-workers enjoyed the aromatic flatulations brought on by six egg yokes. Why only six? And where are the whites? Luke Jackson you're not.......

Joel, there is an item in Thursday's CSP news clips about a young sailor dying on USS NEBRASKA. No suggestion of how. Hard to believe it's happened to that ship again.

Its kind of weird but I remember my grandparents, old farmers and they had a breakfast that today would come with a phone number for a cardiac surgeon. It was heavy duty and everything that is deemed bad today. They lived a long time, into their 80s with no heart issues. I know that there are a lot of variables, genes, physical exertion etc... They were very active but they did not eat tofu type stuff, lol. Maybe from the health and longetivity standpoint they just won the lottery as they say?

Better yet, I remember Jim Fixx. Anyone else remember him back in the 70's and early 80's? Both his parents die early of heart disease, so he becomes a hardcore runner, sells a ton of books, and what happens to him? BOOM--dead of a heart attack while jogging at age 52. Just goes to show, when it's your time, it's your time, and ain't a damn thing you can do when it happens.

I go to cholesterol heaven about once a month. But my happiness is from chicken fried steaks with bisquits and sausage gravy......
On the Floriduh, there was a run'off everytime they had bisquits and gravy, peeps used to put in wakeups for it. LOL. The cooks hated it because they had to work.
I don't use drugs to influence my eating habits, I hate pills. Man, that sux.....

Don't know how to post a new thread but there's been another suicide aboard USS Nebraska. 21-year old on first deployment. My friend's son is serving on board. The Navy phoned her to tell her about the suicide before the media got hold of the story. But they told her the vessel had crashed and that there were other injuries which freaked her out. The Navy has since retracted the bit about the crash and other injuries stating that it was a 'lone suicide'. That makes three deaths on the same ship since 2005. Any comments?re

Some boats seem to have a string of these. I rememeber a few on the LA. Very tragic no matter where it occurs.

Fixx lived 10 years longer than his father, who died at 43 of his second heart attack. He had survived the first on when he was 35, but lived as an invalid. Jim died while running.

Go ahead, y'all, sit on your ass, eat your eggs and drink your milk, die early and often from the artery cement.

Come on, Obama Care will take care of EVERYTHING (except quality health care will be nonexistent when its in place).

Anon--I do take care of myself. I dare say I'm in better shape now than I was as a 20-something on my first boat. I quit smoking, run an average of 20 miles a week (and have run 4 marathons and countless 10K's and half marathons), and have a cholesterol level in the low 140's. What I'm saying is that when it's your time, it's your time. Genetics DOES play a part in it, whether you like it or not.

We had our own topside watch commit suicide on Buffy back in 1990. Kid wasn't very popular, but it still hits EVERYONE hard.

In the older part of Bremerton, there is this greasy little dive bar which serves breakfast on Sundays. This place appears to have been around since the 70s and never updated. For a cholesterol bomb from hell, they have four poached eggs topped with a kick-ass hollandaise sauce which should be banned for health reasons. Plus they serve apple pepper bacon and a side of wheat toast with grape jam.

When we have Sundays off, that's where a few of us make bee-line to. You gotta run all that shit off early Monday morning but it's worth it.

I've always thought of Bremerton as somewhat of a dump (comapared to Seattle and Silverdale), but that little dive bar is worth going to for breakfast.
