“Every thoughtful individual entertains ideals of goodness, truth and beauty, absolutes towards which he can move and aspire but which his own limitations forbid him ever fully to attain. And these conceptual absolutes are no less valuable for their being only relatively and never absolutely attainable. They afford no final goals, but they do establish the directions in which the affairs of men can lead them into endless yet never perfect realizations of their hopes and dreams.”—Spencer Heath (1876-1963)
Today I decide to try not one, but two of the Infamous chicken sandwich know as the “Double Down”. For those of you that don’t know. The Double Down is a chicken sandwich made out of 2 strips of bacon, two melted slices of Monterey Jack and pepper jack cheese and Colonel’s Sauce sandwiched in between two boneless chicken fillets (your choice of original recipe or grilled). Now doesn’t that sound delicious.
Like everyone else I was curious about the “nutritional” facts of the Double Down and this is what I found:
Calories = 540
32 grams of fat
1380 msg of sodium
Now multiply that times 2 since I had…two of them and add a Lg Dr.Pepper to the mix and you have about:
Your daily recommended calorie intake for adults and children 4 years and above is 2,000 calories. Granted I didn’t surpassed that, but thats all in one day. I almost had that in one meal serving!
So what about the taste?…DELICIOUS, a little salty, but that didn’t ruin the whole experience. I dare say it was one of the better sandwiches on the KFC menu. I mean, I had two for godsakes! Now if you’ll excuse me I’m feeling a little nauseous. I’ma go lay down for a bit.
“Is this the democracy and freedom that they claim have brought to Iraq? What Namir was doing was a patriotic work. He was trying to cover the violations of the Americans against the Iraqi people. He was only twenty-one years old. Other innocent colleagues and other innocent people, who were just standing out of curiosity when they see a journalist in a scene, and they were all killed. This is another crime that should be added to the record of American crimes in Iraq and the world. Is the pilot that stupid, he cannot distinguish between an RPG and a camera? They claim he was carrying an RPG. When was the RPG this small, small as a camera? He was carrying a small camera. An RPG is more than one meter long. Yes, it was an RPG because it shows the acts against Iraq and its people that still suffer from their crimes. We demand the international organizations to help us sue those people responsible for the killings of our sons and our people.”—NABIL NOOR-ELDEEN, brother of the slain Reuters cameraman Namir Noor-Eldeen (via democracy now)
Shocking news! The same unit that attacked and killed the two Reuters reporters from the “Collateral Murder” video was involved in a 3rd attack killing 3 civilian families in an unfinished apartment building.
I’m about to go apply for a job @ Best Buy. Wish me luck. Shit! I better get it. I dressed in my nicest clothes. The best part about this best buy is that it’s just down the street from where I live. If I do get the job it will be a sinch getting there.
