I recently came across this entry on a blog I read:
I wish Roche would get his ass back on here because this shit is right up his alley - as he is constantly amazed by feats of various animals and downplays the abilities of humans, this article is great because it talks about what great distance runners humans are. I found it pretty interesting.

I have been reading that blog for a couple of weeks now, after you posted a link to it. It is now one of my favorites. The guy who does the blog is you (Ross) if you had gone into biology. He has no tolerance for idiots, and rips them to shreds on a nearly daily basis.  
He also puts up a ton of new stuff every day (at least it seems like it)... makes me wish I had his job... just surf the web and post commentary all day long.

Hey! I *do* have his job. Just none of his insight, credentials, wit, or fan base.

Another supremely interesting article that would captivate Roche if he were here, dealing with why people are short or tall:
I'm not kidding, this is one of the coolest articles I've read in months.

Thanks for the post to the article, Bertberry Farms. It was a great piece of reading. More evidence of the crappy nutrition Americans are getting and the actual effects of poor eating. Speaking of which, I am about to go out and eat my eat on! Its Raclette night again!! It was so good last time, I've got some friends going out again tonight!  
Mmmm tasty meats and yummy cheese. I hope to grow at least two inches tonight! Um, well not up.

Man Fatty, I wish I knew you liked cheese so much. We were about to have Raclette at the Seņor's place but I thought so much cheese wouldn't sit well with you, so I suggested we have tuna balls instead. Then we Order Pizza with chunks of fresh tomatoes and corn. (whadaya mean you don't like tomato!?)  
Oh well, at least the trip to The Sock made up for it.

You don't put corn on Pizza. It's just not done. Sort of llike putting squash on your hamburger.

I know - but it tastes pretty good. I wonder why some people put tomatoes on their pizza. Not only are these things vile, on pizza, they are quite redundant.  
The pizza was from Pizza Hut and it was the closest thing to American Pizza since - well since I was in America.
From: Ross Entered on: December 3, 2004 10:08 AM
Well, I'm sure that since it's from Spain, or any country outside the US, it must be great!

I would happily try corn on pizza. Why limit yourself because of social conventions? I never thought chicken would taste good on pizza, but fuck, man, was I wrong.  
As for the ongoing tomato debate: Fatty and I should form the Anti-Tomato Consortium. We should especially ban the ones that explode in your mouth.

I see you have a bit of the maize craze.  
Why not put cereal on your pizza while you are at it?

I enjoy corn. I would even try it on pizza. Pizza has no set conventions that dictate what is good and what is not. But I find the idea kind of silly in concept nonetheless, and I will mock it until I try it and find it palatable.

TAMATOES TASTE GOOD! I thoght if I put it in caps it would get my point across.

Tomatoes are an anomaly for me. I hate to touch them in their natural state -- Foul veggie! Or is it fruit?! -- yet once processed, are the basis of some of my favorite things: Ketchup, Spaghetti/pizza sauce, tomato soup, etc.  
Tomato... I hate you, yet I love you!
From: The Bone Entered on: December 4, 2004 11:26 AM
I enjoy corn as well.. It probably wouldn't fuck up the taste of pizza, however it is completely uneccessary. I don't think it add very much to the experience. Chicken, however would.

I never saw the point of "hamburger pizza" (why not have a hamburger?) or "taco pizza" (ditto), but I agree with da Bone on BBQ Chicken Pizza... BOING! That's been my favorite for the last couple years. B.C. Pizza here in Lowell serves up a fine BBQ Chicken pie.

Oh, I must beg to differ. There was a pizza place off campus at MSU called Georgios that I used to go to often after a night of drinking that had phenomenal taco pizza. Magnificent. Granted, the alcohol probably enhanced things a bit but I do enjoy taco pizza quite a bit. I think I've been there with Pat a few times in fact.... but I dont know if he was a fan of the taco pizza as well?

I find that for pizza, especially foriegn pizza, that anything goes. I think a rule of thumb is, if it tastes good, it will taste good on pizza. There has to be some reasoning behind it, you cant put chocolate ice cream on a tomato-based pie! I've have fruit pizza - fabulous!!! Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza (C'on Jack I know you like this one), and the other day I had tartiflete pizza with ham and potatoes! You really have to open your mind to have pizza over here. It is quite common to crack an egg over the pizza and cook it. The number of pizza's I've seen and would not try is enourmous, and I even tried salmon pizza. Not too bad either. I hate to tell you guys this, but that BBQ Chicken Pizza you know and love would taste even better with corn. Thats crazy talk!
