Screw fast food restaurants.

Forgive me shadiyah, for I have sinned.

I went to wendy's to get a cheap small fry and a bacon cheeseburger. Both a dollar. I only buy dollar items at fast food places, so I don't eat too much garbage.

I get home, take a bite, and an 8 inch black hair is in my food. Ok, great almost gagged but ok.

For the following 3 hours I have indigestion and stomach pain for quite awhile.

I hate fast food places. I hate them all.

I'm going to have an apple. Even if I find a nice worm surprise it won't be as hairy as a human!

Plus I gotta take that multi vitamin.

I'm glad you figured this out while you are still very young. Most people need a much bigger wake up call.

I like oranges. In my backyard, I've got plum, walnut, orange and banana trees. I'm looking at grafting on lime and lemon branches onto the orange-tree and calling it a cocktail tree!

Sure! My peppermint and Vietnamese mint is getting out of control!!! I've also got pineapple, bell-peppers, chili-peppers, jalapenos, potatoes, spinach, some weird lettuce, roma tomatos, onions, garlic, shallots, Italian basil, Thai basil, and some intense purple basil Lots of salad possibilities!

Although my basil plants have been low-yield this year, I think I've been making more fresh pesto and spring-rolls than before. Then again, the basil seeds haven't been sprouting as much... strange... at least we're in for a very wet winter.

... any basil farmers lurking around here... ???

Basil farmer here. I find it surprising that you have intense purple basil, as all the purple I have grown and eaten has had a substandard flavor.

I'm not sure what basil "should" taste like. As in a standard? I just notice that the purple basil has a stronger, more tangy, zesty flavor, kinda spicy. So I use some of it to liven up salads and other dishes. It's kinda like the difference between using alfafa sprouts versus radish sprouts, the purple basil adds some punch. But yeah, by itself, it's not as tasty with a full-bodied flavor like the green Italian basil.

So what's causing the lower germination-rates on my crop this year? I think I may have harvested the seeds too early? I plucked them out when the seeds turned black and planted them about 0.5cm under the surface of the soil. Very few are coming up. I noticed that receptacle/sepal was still green at the time. Should I have waited until those parts are brown and the rest of the plant is pretty much dead as well?

Mine was 120/70 a while ago. Plus my blood test results came back, cholesterol was like, 60HDL, 90 LDL. Triglycerides were 40. Resting heart rate of 40. And guess what, I eat at mcdonalds and burger king 3-4 times a week, have about a gallon of ice cream, and a huge juicy fat 16 ounce steak. Big freakin deal, I've found all kinds of crap like paper clips in non-fast food restaurants too.
I too make sure I only buy the dollar items, that way I can get like 5 burgers, some chicken nuggets, a sundae, and a soda for 10 bucks. Suckers...

I've got 3 or 4 varities on the edge of my herb garden. I dunno if I'd call myself a "farmer" though, since I just let it go wild and harvest what I need. One of my neighbors has a hydroponic greenhouse full of the stuff though, but it's just the plain old sweet variety. He makes good money selling it to local grocery stores.

That's what you get for buying fast food from Wendy's.

If you are going for artery cloggers, you should have bought the real thing...Jack in the Box Ultimate Bacon Cheeseburger combo, or the two monster taco combo.


....sacrilage....oh dark lord of the fast food, please show mercy upon this heathen, for he doth not know of the ways of the ultimate bacon cheeseburger, he does nto know of the two cheese in use, the grase saturate meat patties, and the insane amount of bacon....he does not know the temptation of a taco where it is made, and the entire thing is deep fried. It makes my arteries cry, but they are not tears of sadness, they are tears of delightful pain.

That's not funny! I found one matching that description in a truck stop milkshake once. <blech>

Also found a band-aid in a pizza once.
