Good for them and screw the nutrition Nazis. There is no reason I should not be able to occasionally enjoy a good rack of ribs because the beachballs with lips and other fatties out there lack self discipline. It is really simple calories in

That's nice, and all, but who the fark wants HALF a rack? Give me the numbers for a FULL ORDER. Don't make me do the maths. Ain't nobody got time for all that!

I see commercials here in Vegas, all the time, for Bostom Market, and Golden Corral. As far as I can tell, there's ONE Boston Market in Nevada...and it's in Reno. Not a single Golden Corral in the entire state. You'd think it would be a waste of money to advertise here, when they do not sell product here, but what do I know?

You're probably getting commercials that are targeted for the LA market, which I feel is equally wasteful since there are only 2 in the area. Either that or maybe they're national commercials. I feel the same way about Sonic commercials. Don't tease me with your delicious cherry lime-aids! I have to drive 2 hours to get to the closest Sonic.

Ah yes, the lovely "home cooking" restaurants that sell the same boring shiat you grew up with at an inflated price and with 3x the salt and butter of mom's recipe.

It's not "HOME made" food, it's "HO-made" food. Not "food made at home", but rather "food made by ho's".

Ugh. You can have Sonic. I live in a town of 4,500 people and we have a Sonic, a Dairy Queen, an Arby's, and a McDonald's. I can't even bring myself to eat at any of those places anymore. I consider Taco Bell a treat now, but I have to drive an hour to get there.

Having such a crappy selection has made me a pretty damn good cook, though, especially in Chinese-American food. We have ONE Chinese restaurant in town run by a family that was apparently exiled from  China for crimes against cuisine/humanity.

It's funny I'm from a small farm town in rural Michigan. I think we had around 3,500 people when I lived there (and we were the biggest in the county). And even we had a Chinese joint. I was always curious as to how they ended up there. Of all the places in America to live they picked a podunk backwater like ours. I do remember it was pretty good though. But then again never had much else to compare it too.

Judging by that picture they really aint got time for no maths either, if they brought me those 3 ribs I would ask for other side of that rack that has a good solid 7-8 ribs left on it!

No, it's okay because I've been assured that people with high BMI are all musclebound demigods with bones like lead who would only eat something like this after running 10 miles to and from their powerlifting meet.

To put it another way, that's pretty much the exact same calorie count as the BK Texas Double Whopper, not counting the side of fries.

You have to advertise nationally to get the best slots, and these places are widespread enough that it's still worth it to them.

That's way too much fat, sodium, etc.

Exactly. When I go to eat ribs, F*CK nutrition. I can exercise when I get home.

No, it's not. The form of the calories is important, the time you eat them is important, how you eat them is important, how long in between each chunk of calories is important.

Maybe the calories themselves are the primary determining factor in weight gain, but to pretend that something as complicated as the human metabolism have its convoluted impacts on the human body reduced to simple arithmetic is just absurd.

That said, people aren't "calorie nazis" for pointing out that a disgusting fast food salt lick is a disgusting fast food salt lick. What I wouldn't give for a fast food joint that managed to sell something that doesn't include as its only two "flavors" salt and fat....

A rack of ribs doesn't have to be a heart-attack-in-waiting to be tasty (although it ain't ever going to be health food). It only has to be a heart-attack-in-waiting to be tasty to fat arses who have no idea what good food actually tastes like.

I stopped at BM a couple of weeks ago (in Rancho Bernardo).  Apparently I just missed Mitt, everyone was all excited, "Oh man, you just missed the big man himself!"  "Who" I asked? "Mitt Romney!"  Oh, well I voted for Obama...      Apparently he eats there frequently...

Ouch.  That's about the worst possible selection of four fast food places, Sonic is actually the best of that lot.

Which brings up a question:  what are the worst five national fast food chains?

I'd say McDonald's, BK, Arby's, Little Cesar's, and Taco Bell.
