DailyDirt: Eating Like A King...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Some people eat to live. Others live to eat. Since there's a pretty wide range between those two extremes, here are just a few quick links to some examples of interesting eating habits. By the way, StumbleUpon can also recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    About Texas and last meals...

    Wow, talk about cheapskates, too cheap to give a fellow his last meal, now that's cold.

    As Winston Churchill once said, "If you're going to kill a man, it costs nothing to be polite".

    I'm thinking a lot less of Texas these days.

    Clearly what is needed here is a Death Row Buffet.

    That guy ordered a truckload of food, then refused to eat any of it. You all know what that means.
    That's right, he was trolling the prison.
    Texas made the right decision here. Never feed the trolls.

    Re: Re:

    If the buffet is all-you-can-eat... then that'd be a loophole for the death penalty as long as you can continuously keep eating... :P

    The alternative solution that other states adopt is to just say their inmates' last meals have a maximum cost of $40 (or some other amount). (Or some states just don't have a death penalty....)

    Airlines have tried to offer healthier food options for travelers, but a lot of flyers are sticking to salty snacks and comfort foods.


    But of course. They should have predicted this. Passengers will crave such food to psychologically offset the negative emotional influences of TSA gropes and naked scans, long waits in lines with a risk of missing the flight if everything took enough longer than usual, delays and cancellations, and then, once they're aboard, the quiet nagging fear that someone will blow up the plane, or someone will hijack the plane, or their luggage will end up in Cleveland instead of Orlando.

    Talking about food HDD's could get tastier, since 18 Terabytes are now possible thanks to a grain of salt in the mixture.
